Disneyland and California Adventure

We had a great time at Disneyland. Brooke's friends have a year pass, so they know the in's and out's of Disney and how to make the best use of your time there. They also know the best places to most of the food was fantastic. We spent two days in Disneyland and the last day we went to American Girl Doll place (pictures to come) for shopping and lunch with the dolls. We had a wonderful time. It was great to get away with just the girls. One highlight of our trip....on the same coaster ride with us was Lisa Rinna (sp) from Dancing with the Stars and her husband Harry Hamblim (sp). She was there with her family. It really mad me think though. The cost of fame. Here she is with her family and strangers are constantly asking her for her picture and autograph. She was very gracious, but I couldn't help feel sad for her kids. Here are her parents being mom and dad, yet everyone wants a piece of their time. I think it is one thing to get their autograph when they are promoting themselves and their work, but if they are being mom/dad then it is hands off. We didn't ask for pictures because I thought it was wrong to take the time from their kids. Anyways, just made me think. We had a super time at disney and came home exhausted.

I'm very jealous. We want to go really bad--I should say Stella. Looks like it was a lot of fun. I like the last picture--how they are matching. Cute.

Great stuff, Shelly. So good to see you yesterday. Your kids sure are lucky to have you - especially Brooke with this trip!
