A very good friend of mine invited me to go to Disneyland with her — just two adults sort of living a second childhood. ;) Naturally, I jumped at the chance! We stayed at the Disneyland Hotel, and this is the view we had from our suite.
Everything — and I mean everything — was in keeping with the Disneyland theme, from the print on the sheets to the faucets in the bathrooms.
We arrived last Saturday, just in time to see snow on the mountains, the result of a massive storm that hit that day. In fact, our timing wasn't really so bad, since the weather gradually improved over the course of the next few days while we were there, and we completely missed the rain — unless you count the floods of water we drove through on the way there.
I can't begin to tell you all of the things we did, but we had the best time ever! This was the first time we'd done anything together that wasn't quilt-related, but we laughed and had a ball. Each day we left the hotel and walked under the sorcerer's hat to get to Disneyland or the California Adventure Park, and each day we came back again with aching legs and smiling faces.
We saw everything from rides to plays to a fantastic water show — and, of course, various characters. We took our photos with each one we could find, so here I am with Donald Duck, my friend's very favorite!
