Happy Fall Monday!
|"World of Color" show at California Adventure|
The colors are in full bloom here in the Auburn foothills and as much as I love it, it's happening so early that come November, the trees will all be bare. N matter what Mother Natures schedule is, I am loving it!
Last week we were in Southern CA celebrating Mason's 10th birthday at Disneyland. We all had such a good time riding roller coasters, swimming in the hotel pool that also had a waterslide, and taking pictures with classic Disney characters. We were able to dine at Goofy's Kitchen at the Disneyland Hotel compliments of Disney (we could not have afforded to eat there on our own dime!), and the "World of Color" show at California Adventure was well worth the 30 minute wait with about a 1000 other people - "WOW!" is all I can say. When we planned this trip months ago, we planned to stay one more night and visit Universal Studios, but as we got closer to our departure date, we pulled the plug on the last stop, boy am I glad we did that! We were totally pooped out and out of spending money. Not to mention, I don't think my feet could have done another full day of walking and standing in line. We can save that trip for another time.
We wrapped up our weekend celebrating Mason's birthday (which was on Sunday) at home and with friends. Mason got to go out with his friend Kyle on their boat, knee boarding and enjoying this lovely fall weather, while Dave and I watched football and geared up for the new week. We ate birthday cake and all went to be early. I think this birthday will go down in the Partak Family History book as, "Epic!"
