"Hey Trina, you just finished singing in Handel's Messiah! What are you going to do now?!"

"I'm going to Disneyland!"

O.K. so I should've written that last Sunday night, since we left Monday morning and came back on Thursday.
We had a day of warm sunshine, then a day of cold biting windy rain and then a day of sunshine. Gotta love California.

It cost about $900 for my family of 7 to go to Disneyland for two days. Luckily, we were using my Mother-in-law's vacation club, so that paid for $500 of it. Still, that is a lot of money. At least we also got to stay at a nice hotel for free and since we attended a sales presentation for said club, they also gave us $100 in Disney money and one free meal and limo ride. So, that was fun.

I told Ravenna she could study the sales tactics that they use. So, she took notes during the whole pitch, unknown to the salesman. He was nice though and could tell we didn't really want to be hearing the sales pitch, so he didn't give us the hard sell. At least we went to that on the rainy day, so we didn't waste precious hours of sunshine.

Incidently, on the tram to the park on the rainy day morning, someone we knew sat right behind us! She was Ravenna's camp counselor a couple years ago. It's a small world after all.
