"It's still magic, even if you know how it's done."
My appellate brief (some huge law school assignment, that is worth 70% of one of my classes) comes out this week, so before things get really crazy, it was nice to have a weekend to chill and enjoy life. Since I have been blessed with two lovely visitors this week, we decided to head to Anaheim to visit Disneyland. I have been to Disney World in Florida but I have always wanted to visit the park out here. I must say, Sunday was such a magical day! We had an amazing time "being young again" and seeing all the young families and their little kids running around. It was so precious just seeing how happy they all were. There's a reason they call Disneyland "the happiest place on earth;" every one was in such great spirits.
We actually rode a carousel for the first time as well! I don't know what I've been doing these past twenty three years, but I'd never been on one of these things. After shoving a few of the kiddos out of the way (just kidding, I would never) I managed to snatch myself a horse. It was quite relaxing and a much needed change of pace from the hustle and bustle of law school.
The parade was so much fun as well. My last visit to Disney World was before Princess and the Frog came out, so Tiana was not apart of the parade. I was so excited to see her this time around, I could only imagine how excited I would have been if I was actually five and seeing her for the first time. Not to mention, it was extra special because I was able to visit the New Orleans portion of the park! It took me right back to being in undergrad in Louisiana. I had the most delicious mickey-shaped beignets- soooo soooo good! All in all, it was a really amazing day and I had such an awesome time hanging out with Vanessa and our friend, Avery. Although this week we'll be action packed for me, I'm trying to enjoy every moment of it.
