the last week of school for the bean included a day at disneyland with their classmates. they met up at school earlier than normal that morning to board the bus and ride down to anaheim together with a couple of their teachers as chaperones.
you know what that means, of course: the old lady and i dropped off the bean and then promptly jumped on the freeway and headed on down to the happiest place on earth for some mommy & me fun.
when we got inside the park we found the double decker bus at the curb, just waiting for us to climb aboard for a one-way ride to the castle (yes, i took the picture at the end of the ride). we hadn't done this in forever, but it's a really nice way to enjoy a leisurely drive down main street and not have to elbow through the crowds making their way into the park.
we got to see a few characters who were out greeting guests.
"it's a small world" isn't one of the old lady's favorite attractions, but i enticed her with the idea of enjoying a long, slow boat ride with plenty of air conditioning. plus, i love stopping in to say hello to my little filipina homegirl.
big thunder is always a good time.
