Most of you know that I am no fan of Disneyland. A Friday afternoon didn't do much to change my stereotypes of the place, HOWEVER, we had fun in spite of the long lines, way too many people, high temperature, and squirming child trying to constantly evade my grasp. It was fun to see Adam's sister and her family too. They very kindly treated us to dinner and let us invade their hotel room all in an effort to convince us that Disneyland really does rock...I'm sure it does on any other day except for Friday. Favorite quote of the day: "Ashley, just enjoy the ride," from my very philosophical nephew Cooper on Pirates of the Caribbean.
Then we went down to San Diego for the sick nasty Red Bull air race show on Saturday. Man, those people know how to put on a party. It was a blast. We sat on blankets under the shade right next to the water and watched these planes fly top speed in and out of the pylons. So cool. We invaded the hotel room (again) of our dental school friends on Friday night and then met other friends at the show. After, we went to Old Town San Diego for some delicious Mexican food...It was almost worth waiting for an hour and dealing with four tired, sunburned, screaming kids. Favorite quote of the night, "Wow, by the time we get in there, even Adam will be drinking!" from my friend Lisa when it became clear that dinner might become a disaster...actually, that wasn't my favorite quote, but I don't know if she wants me repeating the other one...it was a good night. We'll leave it at that.
