I ran my first Marathon today.  It was amazing, hard, fun, grueling and long. 26.2 miles is a long way to run. But I did it. When I'm not so exhausted I'll post more. Out.

Go Dodgers

One of our nights in California we went to a Dodgers game. It was a special treat for our Dodger fan, Charlie. He was in heaven. Our first stop was the gift shop for a Kemp shirt. Next Dodger dogs. Which were seriously yummy. Then 9 innings of 1-0 nail biting win. Charlie was on the edge of his seat for each double play, pop fly and out.
I chipped in by taking Lucy to the bathroom so the Dodgers could score in the 8th and get the final out in the 9th. Seriously.
Even though they're bankrupt, we were treated to an awesome fireworks show after the game. Go Dodgers.

How do you describe three days of nonstop fun at the happiest place on earth? You can't, but here goes. The kids were hosted by the ultimate Disneyland experts, Grandma and "Fast" Patch. We rode rides the favorites being anything fast or wet. Apparently two anxious worriers produce daredevils. They couldn't get enough speed. By our final day, even Lucy had her hands in the air screaming with delight.
Patrick was on his a-game regarding fast passes. His scientific system is sweet! The kids thought it was weird if they had to stand in line for more than ten minutes.
We ate yummy food. We laughed. We walked and walked and walked. At the end of each night the kids passed out only to wake early and do it all again.
Aufedersein Disneyland. We miss you already.
