I'm documenting what we are doing everyday this week, Monday through Friday, so Anna can look back one day and say "That was a fun summer," instead of, "I miss school. I like school better than summer vacation." She actually did say that the other day, and I was quite taken aback. (After all, haven't we been doing a ton of fun things? Hasn't Mommy been doing a good job planning everything?) But seriously, I'm glad she does love her school and she looks forward to going back in the fall...
Leti watched Sam this morning while Anna and I had mommy-daughter time at Disneyland. We started the day with beignets and cereal. (Anna "smiled" this way on purpose, she says it looks cute... pretty hammy...)
Our first ride was the teacups, man, can Anna spin that thing!
We also rode on Alice in Wonderland, the Storybook Boats, Pirates of the Caribbean (Gretchen's favorite ride!) and finished it off with a visit to Pirate's Lair.
Tom Sawyer's Island is currently called Pirate's Lair, to coincide with the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and movie. Lots of mazes, bridges, treasure chests, pirates here and there... Anna probably had the most fun just exploring the area.
We found a large pile of gold, and right near it, "Jack Sparrow"... hmm... I guess a dark wig and eyeliner can make anyone into Johnny Depp. Anna was a little frightened when he told us not to smile...
And that was our Monday morning!
