Back Home

I know that those of you that followed my blog about my trip to California are crazy sad that my trip is over. I know that I am crazy sad about it. This also means that I have to go back to work tomorrow. (BOO!!!) I just spent the last two hours clearing out 837 emails on my work email. It probably would have taken me all day to do it at work tomorrow. So at least I have that done. Whew!!!

I picked up my girls at the kennel last Tuesday and they look amazing. Polly must have lost 10 pounds. She looks like the model and spokesdog that she is meant to be. Mabel had some ear issues before I took her to the kennel and I changed her food a week and a half before to see if maybe she had some allergy thing going on. All the sores on her ears are gone and she even lost a few pounds. I am so glad to have my girlies home with me.

I am ready to go back to Disneyland (yes it is "the happiest place on earth"). I also thought that perhaps all y'all would like my opinion of the rides that I rode at Disneyland. Here goes:

Space Mountain--roller coaster in the dark--not as scary as I remembered it.
Autopia--cool little car ride--check out the crazy road signs
Honey, I Shrunk the Audience--great little film--good special effects (and I do mean special)
Star Trek--great ride--very fun simulator ride through space
Finding Nemo--this is an okay submarine ride--would not recommend it for tall or heavy people
Peter Pan--hands down one of the best flights I have ever had. We took this ride about 5 times.
Mr. Toad's Wild Ride--not as good as Peter Pan
Spinning Teacups--HELL YES, great ride!!!
Snow White--not as good as Peter Pan. Watch for the Evil Witch to appear in the upstairs window when you are in Fantasyland.
Alice in Wonderland--not as good as Peter Pan
Storybook Land--take this enchanting ride at night
Dumbo--hell yes, another great flight
Pirates of the Caribbean--too cool--took this ride over and over again
Haunted Mansion--another cool one--took this ride over and over again too. With Christmas upon us, it was decorated in the movie theme of "The Nightmare before Christmas". I would have probably enjoyed it more if it was the regular theme.
Splash Mountain--splashy all right
Matterhorn--cool rollercoaster...think I lost my phone there
Train ride--can't miss this classic--great ride at night
Toon Town--this was a charming cartoon village. Don't miss it, especially if you want to see characters.
Monorail--classic ride around the park
Theatre and Museum on Main Street--definitely check this out. Short film with Steve Martin is great.
Indiana Jones--cool ride--kind of a roller coaster in a big old jeep
Jungle Cruise--animals are getting a little old but this is definitely a classic. Fun ride at night.
Mark Twain Steamboat ride--another classic ride. The animals are getting a little ragged on this ride too.

We also went to California Adventure. Not a place I would have to go back to except for one ride. A lot of the park looks like an old Hollywood set and that is hella cool.

Soaring over California--this is probably one of the coolest rides ever. It is a simulator that makes you feel like you are in a hang glider flying over California. Definitely a must.

Tower of Terror--okay so Cindy talked me into going on this one. You get an awesome view of Disneyland at night (if you have your eyes open). But there is a lot of up and downs on this ride. Scared the crap out of me.

Grizzly Peak Raft Ride--pretty much like a lot of raft rides but fun

Bug's Life movie--very fun and fun special effects

I know I have probably left some rides off my list but as I think of them, I will try to update you. Hope you all enjoyed my journey through Disneyland as much as I did. TTYL.
