Sunday evening we headed to Disneyland. We stayed at a Disneyland resort hotel and hit California Adventures on Monday.
and of course swimming in the evening.....
Tuesday we checked out of our hotel and walked over to Disneyland.
and then Samuel's favorite part: the Jedi Knight training! He got chosen to train as a Jedi Knight, and fought Darth Maul!
And then, at the end of our Disney adventure, while the kids and I were in a shoppe, Greg made some pics of the retiring of the colors.... this being the day after our brave Navy Seals found and killed
Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. A ten year mission completed.
Portland, OR. is often distinguished as having a European feel to it.
Interestingly, for me, coming to California is coming back to America. With all it's diversity of people and places, distinct Mexican influence, balance between work and play, beauty and grit, it embodies so much of what is so grand about the U.S.
Check back later as our trip continues and culminates at our stay by the sea....
