Boy, have the last two weeks been a test! It seems we brought more than just souvenirs and fun memories home from vacation..we apparently brought home the flu! And a nasty one at that. First DH, who was over the worst of it in just about 3 days, then me-who it seemed could not get the bug to leave, and then my SIL, who luckily has a better immune system that DH & I so she skated by with a light case. I am – in my dad’s description – so glad to have rejoined the land of the living!
On to more fun stuff – I told you I would share pictures of our visit to Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm. Here a just a few – we did find that we were having so much we didn’t take as many pictures as we thought we would.
The rides at both parks are great – Knotts Berry Farm has the more extreme ones, Disneyland has the more family oriented ones. DH lost a new cap on the Splash Mountain ride in Disneyland – hang on to yours if you go on this one!
There are two displays that I think were the best of everything we saw and if you have a chance to visit either park they are well worth seeing. The Mystery Lodge at Knotts Berry Farm is one. You will be completely amazed at the special effects as the Old Storyteller takes you on a mystical journey through the Native American culture. The other is the Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln at Disneyland. The best audio-animatronics you have ever seen and Mr. Lincoln’s words are as true now as they were when he spoke them. Both are very emotionally moving.
Well, that’s it for today. Hope you enjoyed sharing a bit of our vacation with us.
