In 1982, my family went on a whirl wind vacation. We started in Greeley Colorado, went to Minnesota, camped through Canada and then followed the coast down through California and then back home from Arizona.
In the middle of this trip....we went to Disney Land.
It was amazing! I remember being so excited, even though I was on the cusp of being a teenager and no longer enjoyed G rated movies. I was blown away by the magic of Disney!
I will never forget riding through the jungle cruise on a boat named Connie and climbing the Swiss Family Robinson Tree.
My 7 year old sister immediately started putting on her windbreaker and making sure that her hood was tied securely around her face. We walked out into the California sunshine to realize that the rain was another part of the Disney magic and wasn't real at all!
In 12 days, I will be experiencing the magic of Disney Land with my two 5 year olds (yep, Mallory turns 5 tomorrow and then they will both be 5 for 5 weeks!!). I don't know who is more excited.....them or me!
