Wow! We just got back from Disneyland, and boy was it fun. After our busy holiday weekend we got packed for our trip to the magic kingdom. the boys and I met John at the Sacramento airport after he got off work July 8th. They boys did great for their first time flying.

They loved seeing Mickey and his friends. The first night we were there Jeremy was so tired that he fell asleep on John's shoulders on the way back to the hotel. Jeremy especially liked it when we went to California adventure, because we got to see Play House Disney Live (the show). After that Jeremy got to be in a little show where he had to tell people to 'Reach for the sky" like Woody in Toy Story. He even made guns with his two fingers. After that the actor gave Jeremy a sketch of Woody. Then we went over to the Tower Of Terror and Jeremy was big enough to get on! So of course John took Jeremy on the ride and after wards Jeremy told me that he was really scared and when I asked him if he would go on it with me he said no!!!! They also had a couple of palces in the park where you could play in the water. Other than that we stayed mostly in Disneyland and Down Town Disney. Oddly enough Jeremy and Jason are both big enough to go on the Materhorn. However we did not take them on it because it had a huge line. Oh yeah the best part... Jason and I were waiting at King Arthur's Carosel for John and Jeremy to come off of Peter Pan. When they finally got off we were just standing there talking and a guy who worked there approached us. He asked if we had been on Peter Pan well we said yes and he asked us if we wanted to go again of course we said yes. It turns out that Manni (the worker) is a Magic Moments maker for the park. When we went on Peter Pan we didn't have to wait in line!! He took us in through the exit. We also got to go on Dumbo and Mr. Toads Wild Ride. It was totally unexpected that they even had these people doing this. Manni has been doing this for a year and a half and I can see why he loves his job. He gets paid to give people magic moments.

I can't wait 'til we can go back to Disneyland. If I had my way we would never leave
"The Happiest Place On Earth" !!!

Hey! Glad you had a good time. We are going in November. Pretty much the rest of the year is planned. How did that happen? Continue to be busy here with Erik's school in the morning and errands and house keeping in the afternoon. Christopher is walking now so he keeps us on our toes. I am going with Sue to Maine next week, did I write that to you already? We leave early Saturday. I am excited and petrified at the same time.

Talk soon or when I get back --Taffy

What was it that made Leaders persistent. Was it fear or reward. Somehow these great people left their imprint on the world that the majority of us cant or wont. This web site honors those alive and from the past who have had a impact on our lives, those few Heroes that make our live easier and less complicated.
