My visions of snowball fights, sledding, and 1st time snowboarding for my boys were dashed and left me in a pool of disappointment.
These kind of experiences are my nirvana. I don't need fancy island get-aways at this point in our lives (although I'm thankful for them). I'm happy with our short trips to the mountains or Palm Desert. That is a significant bonus of living in So. Cal. We have the beach, mountains, and desert at our disposal. I don't take it for granted.
It takes my mood a while to shift when plans are changed. However, I came around and decided that we were going to thrive this weekend no matter what.
Disneyland is a quick fix for me.
It is my happy place. The other peeps in my fam enjoy it too.
(after waiting a year, Charlie was finally tall enough for Indiana Jones)
Although, I think I am a closeted Disney fanatic, you won't catch me sporting a Mickey Mouse lanyard or license plate, but trust me, that love for Disney is screaming to be released.
I'll show restraint. Yes, I will.
When the euphoria of Disney wears off and the exhaustion of walking all day hits you like a freight train, you savor the next sleepy morning of coffee sipping and peaceful Lego building.
And, well, some not so peaceful brotherly love.
As the sun starts to shy away and you greet friends with pizza, garlic bread, and bagged salad because they are so super chill and realize that spending time together take precedence over fancy food, you know your life is good.
