Are we happy yet?
I don't know if it's the happiest place on Earth, but it could very well be the most crowded. We reached the pinnacle of our Southern California vacation yesterday with a trip to the Disneyland Resort. We had decided ahead of time that instead of hitting the original park ("It's a Small World", etc...), we'd go to Disney's California Adventure Park--in small part because it went really well with our whole vacation theme.
Some of the attractions were fantastic. We were able to include Isaiah in almost every activity. They issued us a wheelchair pass for his adaptive stroller so we could pull straight through the line and transfer him at the ride and put him right back in it at the gate. The "cast members" were super friendly and helpful and never made us feel guilty or cumbersome. A few of the highlights we were able to enjoy as a family were the Muppet 3-D, Crush the Turtle, and Monsters Inc. shows and almost all of the rides in "It's a Bug's Life" world. (As soon as we get back home, I'll be posting an online link to all of our vacation photos. Just a warning.)
Today, we are heading down to San Diego to Sea World. The weather has taken a cloudy, cooler turn, but we aren't about to let that stop us now. We've travelled over 1000 miles ~ we ain't leaving 'til we pet a dolphin.
