back to normal

By Tara Zandra | March 22, 2010

We had a lovely day at Disneyland yesterday. We had a few goals in attractions and almost attained them all; I still haven’t been able to catch Captain EO. We rode Dumbo, Matterhorn and Alice before heading across the way to California Adventure. Tabitha and I have been wanting to ride Toy Story for awhile, but the line gets long and there isn’t a fastpass so we were determined to catch it at opening. We rode that and had a great time, as always, then the carousel, and then onto Rewood Creek Challenge Trail. It’s an “outdoorsy” area with climbing and a fun tire swing zip line. The girls went on zip line 4 times in a row before splitting up for all the climbing activities. We then had an early lunch before going back to Disneyland. We rode Big Thunder and Chris and Tabitha did Space Mountain. I’m pretty sure that’s it. We also did a lot of browsing the stores both for fun and to look for a specific item for my MIL (didn’t find it) and ended the day at the candy shop where we each picked up a treat. I chose taffy which I haven’t had yet so I look forward to having a couple pieces later this afternoon.

Then it was home and I decided not to get comfy but go ahead and jump right into grocery shopping. The rest of the family played as they unwound and had a nice time doing their own thing. After dinner, the girls went into the backyard and I eventually joined them to get some weed pulling done. It’s not a task I particularly enjoy so I probably didn’t get quite as much done as I should have in the amount of time I was out there. After we got Daisy to bed, I was doing some prep work for this week’s raw food menu and destroyed a mango in the process. I’ve never prepared one before and apparently took the wrong route. Then I tipped over my cup of fresh lime juice that I had just used all my limes to make. So we put Tabitha to bed and then I went back to the grocery store since there were a couple other items the earlier store had been out of anyway.

So today is a full day of lessons and laundry and nothing to do with cookies or Girl Scouts :)

    Mango is one of my favorite fruits. Gillian won’t eat it, though; she says it’s too slimy. :)
