The big FOUR-O, OH MY

Oh happy day. I am forty years old. It's time to embark on a new decade. One of the reasons I look forward to this is that I feel it will be the decade of grandkids. No more kids for me. After two decades of giving birth, I will pass it on to the next generation. But, I digress. Let's talk about my birthday!!!
In January I heard that you could get into Disneyland FREE on your birthday. So, I decided that I was going to take myself to Disneyland, by myselft for my fortieth birthday. And that's just what I did.
However, I did take along a few buddies. My mom came as well as my sister Ally and my good friend Dixie Marshall. Ally, Dixie and I made the trek from AZ to my parents house on Sunday, May 31. We woke up bright and early Monday morning and made the 35 mile drive to the Happiest Place on Earth. Don't we look happy? The weather was great. It was overcast and cold enough to wear sweatshirts. It's what we Southern Californians call the June Gloom. I love it!
Dixie made us all lanyards to hold our water bottles and they were fantastic. We couldn't stop talking about them all day.
The other thing I knew for sure was that I wanted to eat at the Blue Bayou, which is the restaurant inside Pirates of the Carribean. I have never in all my years eaten there. It was absolutely delicious. I got a free dessert, but it wasn't as good as the one we paid for.

We pretty much closed out the park, leaving at 10:40 p.m. I had such a fun time and want to thank my birthday buddies for sharing this special day with me.
