Could you have guessed that these photos were taken at the Happiest Place on Earth? I'm so enjoying using the skills I learned last weekend at the photography retreat as I see everyday things through new eyes. Now that I have my nice camera bag, I'm not embarrassed to bring my nice camera to Disneyland with us, instead of just my little pocket camera. And one of the nicest things about having unhurried weekday mornings at Disneyland now and then, is the discovering of hidden pockets of beauty. When the boys were littler, we might spend an hour feeding the ducks on the Rivers of America, or just wander around looking at the pretty flowers and the people. My favorite spots are Tom Sawyer's Island and a similar exploration-based area in Disney's California Adventure park. The boys love to explore as if we lived in the country and could find caves and treehouses of our own. And now Greg has arrived home early and we'll relax and recover from the heat and excitement of the morning.
Be sure to come back in the next days for a birthday/100th post giveaway!
