Dippy Land

I recently returned from a lovely time in the cold and rainy California. Coo and his family were nice enough to ask us to go along for the fun. I'll just post some pictures for your viewing enjoyment.

The whole crew, minus me before we scarred J for life at the haunted house. You'll notice that we're wearing badges. They are I.D. badges that have everyone's phone numbers on for lost kids and lost Coos. I chose a Disney Character that we had a resemblance to for the front of the badge. Any guesses who was who?
Ma & Pa on their scooters in Tomorrowland (I rented one, too). What can I say? They were fabulous. They held all of our junk and provided rides for tired legs.

Ma entertaining E with a scooter ride.

J Chillin' with Gramps and eating licorice.

Aunt Roo and her shadow.

A and her Rapunzel doll. Yes, I am a sucker of an aunt that bribes nieces and nephews. It's my job. A few of A's favorite rides--It's a Small World, the roller coaster, and Alice in Wonderland (She had several more, but I can't remember them all.)

J and his "build your own" light saber. He refused to have his picture taken without the light saber across his eyes. I also heard he light-sabered baby sister E and had a bit of a time out. J's favorite rides were the "shoot the bad guys" ride (Buzz Lightyear) and the up-and-down go fast ride (Gadget's go-coaster).

A happy E. She was really good - and is a pro at rolling over. Unfortunately E didn't get bribed. I found there really doesn't seem to be anything souvenir and baby friendly at D land. E didn't tell me what her favorite rides were, but she seemed to enjoy most of them, but found It's a Small World a little long for her attention span.

If you can't tell, a fun time was had by all.

P.S. J & A, we left all the ghosts, pirates, & Bug's Life at D-Land. Hopefully, you'll forget these life scarring events, but I don't have much hope. I'm still recovering from the E.T. & Santa Clause incidents when I was 2 or 3.

P.P.S. Maggie the dog's heritage--50% Australian Shepherd, 25% Border Collie, some terrier, a bit of collie, and smidge of Bull Mastiff and Argentine Dogo. Yup, the test confirmed that she truly is a mutt

I can't believe there are 0 comments. The pictures alone are fantastic and so is the commentary. there is proof that this is your blog because you are in none of the pictures. We need to find something with you in. If anyone else took pictures. Thanks for putting this up.
