Disney California Adventure Park …

Last time California Adventure Park had not been built. It was Thanksgiving or Christmas Day, Mark was 28, Rita Anne and Catherine were there. We’d driven over from Loma Linda …

August Jeanne, Charley John and Ruby all enjoyed the “new” park Saturday morning …

Four more Disney Princesses … we must have missed one, I think there are six traditional princesses … Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Rapunzel and Alice in Wonderland … I suppose Alice isn’t a princess, and that list leaves out Ariel, who is a mermaid, but a princess, too …? Maybe Charley John can explain it to me …

A Christmas Parade!

We all missed Rita Anne … I’m sure she was keeping an eye on us with Grandmom and Mom and Mark …

So glad we were able to do this with Rita Anne’s family …
