Started out at the cemetery. How did I not know that Grandma and Papa were buried next to Ken Clausen?
Then off to Ezra's birthday party with Brooke
Mom made a surprise tea/lunch with urge girls today. That was really nice. Sydney was so excited for my birthday-I just love her.
After that I had some more conference calls and then we did dinner at the Americana.

I have only been on this aircraft model 5-10 times. Yesterday I realized that the mood lighting is just like the mood lighting in my Explorer. The only difference is I don't change it when I back up, or when I am idling, or speeding.
Note the computer at the far end of picture 2. The flight attendant changes the color on the little plane picture on the monitor. I didn't pay attention until 1/2 through the flight but I can tell you this: blue is when you are free to move about the cabin, orange is when you are taxiing and white is when you are deplaning.

At the Global Leadership Summit this summer Bill Hybels stated that sometimes he will listen to the same song over and over and over, sometimes 20-30 times in a row. This is what I find myself doing lately with Oceans. It's so beautiful and comforting if you haven't downloaded Oceans by Hillsong, you should.

But that doesn't stop me from doing some much needed space planning for Disneyland. I have become increasingly annoyed at the evening crowds and constant areas that are basically closed because the crowds are so bad you have to walk around a whole land instead of going directly to your destination. For years I have been bothered by the Fantasmic shutdown that occurs in New Orleans square and now basically you have the same problem with fireworks and The Paint the night parade. Let's not forget that during that time Fantasyland and Toon Town are closed as well. It makes for frustration and chaos everywhere.
In fairness, they are trying to make it better but I am convinced that without construction of more walkways they cannot be successful. I am proposing a reroute of the Disneyland railroad and a walkway in its place on the outside. I am also proposing a re-do of the hub similar to Magic Kingdoms re-do which gave us the best view with no chaos of Celebrate the Magic. I know space is limited but come on people let's figure it out. And now back to work....developing a solution.

Season of the Force is awesome! The Darth Vader experience was really cool and Herspace Mountain was amazing! We all agreed it was the best ride layover ever-the Star Wars music made it absolutely perfect. We can't wait to go back and ride it again.
We had a great day today at Disneyland! It was so much fun and that didn't include the Season of the Force! Second post on that coming soon! I love seeing Sydney love the fast rides-She has gotten so brave! Always a good time with the Kruegers and mom and dad.

Yesterday I asked two people (and only two) what they were doing for Thanksgiving. Both of them responded by saying they were having Tofurkey. One was excited to cook it for her family the other was thrilled to have gotten the last one at Whole Foods.
No Thank You. I am not worried that I am missing out.
