We have just returned from the long anticipated trip to Disneyland and San Diego. What a time we had and I can't wait to go there again when the girls are older. It was lovely seeing Disneyland through their eyes and I hope it was not as much of a blur to them as it was to me. I hope they enjoyed every minute as much as I did.
