Childhood Memories Confirmed

I have always had some sort of vague, nagging memories that Disneyland had other rides besides Buzz Lightyear, Pooh Bear, and the Jungle Cruise. But for the last few years, I have only seen these three rides. It's as if some little two-year-old I know has an insatiable desire to shoot Zurg. Weird.

However, when the Hoggard's came to town a couple weeks ago, my faint childhood memories of Disneyland were confirmed. Aunt Alicia (aka Superwoman) met us and took all the kids home for bedtime, so Mandy, Ted, Jeff and I were able to stay until the park closed! Turns out, Disneyland has all kinds of rides requiring the participants to be over 40 inches tall! Who knew?!

Someday, I hope to once again experience this Disneyland phenomenon. But for now, I am satisfied with Buzz, Pooh and "the backside of water." Especially when I get to ride them over and over again with my little blond Disneyland buddy. Another advantage: I am an expert at Buzz Lightyear Astroblasters. If I don't get 300,000 points, I'm disappointed in myself. I wonder if I can put that on a resume someday.

You may get a 300,000 score but I rocked you with a 14,000 score!! That was such a fun night. Thanks again for your hospitality. We love you all so much and miss you terribly.
