GUESS WHERE WE WENT SATURDAY??
On Sat. morning we decided VERY SPUR OF THE MOMENT to go to Disneyland. Our youngest son James and his family joined us for the day, and we brought along little Jeffie as well. It was his very first trip to Disneyland which made it very special indeed. What a good day we had!. The only real appeal Disneyland has for me anymore is to see it through the eyes of my grandkids. We rented a little scooter for me to get around in, and it traveled along at a very fast pace. I LOVE it, haha...
I won't tell you ALL the adorable things they said and did, lol, but I will share this one as it was just sooo cute. We were sitting outside of the Enchanted Tiki Room, which for those of you who have never been to Disneyland, it is a hut where all different kinds of birds, and the flowers etc. sing. It is darling. Anyway there is a little holding area outside of the room where you wait between shows. Jeffie and Capri and JD were sitting on a bench with Grandma waiting for Grandpa and their mommy to buy us all some pineapple whips (soo good btw). James was out walking little Donatella around in her stroller who was napping. I was talking with the kids when Jeffie said, "Grandma, if I lived at Disneyland I would want this to be my house. It is like a jungle and a forest all at the same time." And then Capri said, "Well, if you live at the Tiki House then I will live in Cinderella's castle. You can be the king of the Tiki House, and I will be the Queen of the castle." I laughed at their imaginations and fun and said, "Well, WHERE is Grandma going to live?" And Jeffie said, "Well, you can live right there....(he was pointing to a restaurant next door).....that way you will live sooo close to both of us." How darling was that?
The day was a LONG one, and a little warmer than I would have liked, but perfect in every other way. At 10:15 that night we were sitting on the curb (or everyone but Tella and I that is) watching the firework show, when Larissa nudged me and pointed to little Jeff. I looked over and he was literally asleep sitting straight up, his little head swaying around on his neck. I honesty couldn't believe it. The only one I have ever seen do such a thing? His daddy. They just keep going until they can't go anymore, lol. Hope you all had a wonderful week-end.
Sorry, I have just one more little story I have to tell....the kids were all talking about what they like the best, etc., when the conversation somehow eventually got around to if you could have whatever you wanted in the whole world what would it be. When it was Capri's turn she said, "Well, I would want Jeffie to be my very best friend." And little Jeff said, "Pick again Capri, because I already am." Both mine and Larissa's hearts just melted...OK, now I'll stop.
I am posting a little slide show of the day. ENJOY
