Give a Day, Get a Day

In December, Mac announced that Disney was giving away free tickets to Disneyland.  He wanted to get them so we could go when we were in California.  So, on January 1st, we signed up to volunteer with Project Linus.  When we completed our project we got 4 free one day tickets to Disney.  When we arrived in LA, rather than go to my Mom's in Santa Barbara, we hit Disney!

It was great fun, and the kids loved riding on all the cool rides. They even tolerated Small World for their mother.  The classic picture of the weary kids with their souvenirs near the Mickey flowers.  I had to endure the taking of this picture, it seems fitting that they should too!

We got to see Mickey and Minnie and the posed for a few pictures!  The extra kid is my nephew, not an additional child you didn't know about.

We rode the big kid rides like Space Mountain and the Matterhorn, but we also did some of the little kid rides like Alice and Wonderland.  Bob even rode with his favorite girl.

Disney was great, and I would love to go again. I think next time we might stay for 2 days, but the one day pass we got from the Give a Day Get a Day program, was still good!  Everyone was tired and ready to leave at the end of the day.  Of course there was swimming at the hotel to look forward too!

  1. What fun! I haven't been to Disneyland since I was five, when we lived in Redlands, CA. I have fond memories of the Materhorn though! Glad you guys had such a fun day.
