    Rockr's ROCKIN' Labor Day Weekend- A Hotel Stay and Disneyland

    September 2 and 3, 2007

    Day 1

    After sweating all summer long, me, my Mom, and Dad were able to get a room at the Holiday Inn Select in La Mirada!



    This is La Mirada, California from the view of my room.


    That down there people is the Northwood Inn Steak house- Good cabbage and steak, people!

    Let's see..going through my bags...I brought an iPod to listen to while I was bored..



    ...and something to read, while I'm at it!


    While my Dad and Uncle George went to my Grandma's house to go get my Dad's laptop, I decided to go looking around the area for a little bit.







    I was thinking about using the Business Center for Internet, but it's $10 to get access for 24 hours. What a rip off!!



    Just then, my Dad came back to the room with the laptop, and was installing it...



    and...



    ...Woo-Hoo! Micechat, baby! After cruising around the boards for a little bit, I decided to "Hang Fire" on YouTube with the Rolling Stones!









    Just then, it was time to manja on Crossiant Roast beef and Cheese Sandwiches !



    I decided to go out to the living room, and hang out with my family.



    And here are some of my family members:


    My dad, Alfred



    My mom, Mary

    And last, but definately, not least, Uncle George!



    Ah, La Mirada at Night..



    Day 2 at Disneyland coming up!

    Northwoods ROCKS!

    I haven't been since I was a kid, but I loved the cheddar butter for the bread, and being able to throw peanut shells on the floor in the bar.

    Hee hee! Cute pictures! I think everybody ought to have an Uncle George, and he ought to be making the "thumbs up" in every picture he's ever in. Because it's awesome. And your mum looks really cute - did she like the cheese or detest it? It seems like she must have felt strongly about it one way or the other.

    Can't wait to see more!
    You don't need me or my ham, cheese, cheese, cheese, tomato, cheese, ham and tomato sandwiches. And cheese.

    Uncle George is a great guy. He's a real sociable man- you'd like him. When I asked my Mom to pose, she held up the cheese, and she said "Cheese!" LOL! She was just eating it seperately.

    I like how you just know I'd like him. Well, I probably would. He does look like someone I could definitely get along with.

    Day 2- Disneyland

    After waking up at around 9:00, I took some time to wake up and shower. We decided to brave Disneyland in the 100 degree heat! At around 11:30, I decided to buy myself a coke.



    Ah, Coke...the cause of AND solution to all of lifes problems...as you can see literally..



    At around noon, we finally headed for the park, but we ended up on the roof of the parking structure. Can you believe that!!??





    But after getting off the tram, there were no crowds!



    After getting inside the park, there was a plaque...a plaque that is a wonderful reminder...


    Ah...a quiet Main Street...


    We decided to have Lunch over at the Plaza Inn where I ordered Pasta Alfredo.



    After lunch, I decided to sneak off on my own and go see what the wait times were...






    Just then, I heard a drum roll...I know that sound...


    ..it was the Pearly Band! They then stopped in front of the castle.



    While I decided to watch for a little bit, Mary came out to greet everyone. When she came to me, she shook my hand, and said, "it's nice to see you, Alex."



    After catching a quick glimpse, I decided to go ride Big Thunder where the wait in line was just 10 minutes!



    I ended up in Row 6.



    I decided to go back through Main Street and I noticed that Ariel's Grotto wasn't crowded at all. So I got a pic with Ariel!



    Just then, Wendy and Alice were passing by, and I asked for a group photo with them, and we got one.



    The Finale coming up...

    Maybe I'm just nuts, but is that Alice usually Wendy and that Wendy usually Alice?

    Anyway, great pictures, as always!
