Memories are made everyday. I could have never imagined how a simple little thing like your daughter looking at you and smile sticks with you forever.
I get asked all the time why I love Disney so much….
… where do I start?
The power of Flight. What child isn’t fascinated by the idea of soaring through the air with just the sound of the wind rushing by your ears. I loved this picture and as I was adding color to it, I had to listen to Across The Universe as done by Fiona Apple. Here’s hoping we can all SOAR someday.
So I have been thinking about how I ended up a big hockey fan. Growing up I was a huge sports fan. I grew up with the Dodgers, Lakers, and Rams to follow and cheer for. I loved these teams! Why do I not have the same passion for them anymore? I figured it out. The recent events at Dodger Stadium with the Giants fan brought it all home. When the Lakers began their current run of success, since Kobe arrived, the crowds at the games changed. I have distanced myself from the team and cheer from afar. The same “fans” started showing up at Dodger Stadium, now it seems I go to more Dodger road games than ones at home. Guess what. These people are not at Kings games. I feel safe taking my daughter to the games and although there are still the random idiots around, I do not feel like I am at a Raider game.( no offense to real Raider fans). When the news showed the sketches of the suspects in the beating, it was no shock at all. I could have given them the description without having been there. Am I being prejudiced? Maybe so. But I will think about it while watching my Kings go to the Playoffs!
The wrath of The Matterhorn!!!
They cut out parts of the show, but I still love the nostalgia of Believe!
Do you believe in Miracles??
31 years ago today, a group of college hockey players beat one of the most feared collections of talent in the world at the time.
The Miracle on Ice happened February 22, 1980. Still the top sports moment in this country’s history.
Ten years ago, I woke up on the walkway between Sleeping Beauty Castle and the Matterhorn. It had been a restless night as we had what felt like the COLDEST night ever spent outdoors waiting for a new era for the Disneyland Resort. Disney’s California Adventure opened that day and despite all the criticism, I enjoyed and have enjoyed the park on many levels through the years. The park has changed tremendously, and is changing every day. (The “Golden Hubcap” in the picture no longer exists) It was the first Disney park we ever took my daughter to. So, Happy Birthday DCA. I, along with many others, look forward to what you will have to offer us in your next ten years
