Disneyland Isn't for Sissies!

We just got back from our long awaited vacation to Disneyland. I think we picked the hottest week of the summer to go. It was 114 in Vacaville when we left and it was 99 with 67% humidity in Anaheim. It's about a seven hour drive from our house, done with the windows rolled up, the air conditioner blasting and the gas blowing out the tail pipe!

When we got there we checked into our hotel and went to Downtown Disney to have dinner at Naples. We had very expensive nasty tasting pizza. The highlight of that night was getting to listen to Drew Tretick, www.drewtretick.com . He is an amazing musician that plays the electric violin.

On Monday we drove to San Diego to go to Sea World. Hot and steamy again. We also got rained on at one of the shows. Mike wanted to leave the show, but I didn't want to because we were going to get wet whether we were inside or outside the stadium. We went out to El Cajon to have dinner with my sister and brother-in-law and had a really nice visit with them. We didn't get back to our hotel until midnight.

Tuesday we slept in a little and then went to California Adventure Park. We were standing in line to ride Soarin Over California, when suddenly my back went into spasms. We rode the ride but by the time we were done I was in extreme pain. I left my family to enjoy the park and went back to the hotel and took a muscle relaxer. It knocked me out and I slept most of the day.

Wednesday and Thursday I was able to go to Disneyland with my family even though I was still sore. We did lots of walking and had a great time. I told my DH that I think this should be our last trip to Disneyland. I have never worked so hard having a good time in my life. I think we need to stick to winery tours!
