    Pratt55's Birthday Trip AKA its all about ME!!

    My Birthday, My Trip Report, My Way or the Highway!!

    Although Feburary 21st is my DOB, we waited to leave for Anaheim until the 22nd, due to work and hair issues (mostly hair). For the past few years I've wanted Timmy to take me to the beach. Since this weekend was all about me, we diverted to the beach on the way into town. We went to the gorgeous beach city of Oceanside. After driving through cement freeway jungles the drive there was gorgeous.

    A quick stop at our favorite Oceanside tourist stop to surprise some fellow MC'ers. Surprise .... they weren't there!! So I did what I always do, I shopped.



    and Timmy too.



    We went to Oceanside and brought back our kids t-shirts, how original...



    Look, desert rats at the beach!! Oooh...water!!



    I looked for Nemo after putting my feet in the water.

    Stark, romantic, artistic, lonely ocean pic ahead.




    While I looked around, Timmy was busy making me smile.



    We didn't know how traffic conditions would be heading to Anaheim on the I-5 so we left Oceanside around 2:30 after a quick pit stop at Der Wienershnitzel. It took about 45 minutes to get to our hotel from the beach. It was a nice change of pace seeing different roadside scenery. After checking into our hotel I wanted to get the weather report on TV but got engrossed in a police chase in downtown LA for about an hour. Stupid criminals caught as usual!!! Radios, helicopters, DUH!

    We decided that I wanted to go on some rides at DCA that I had been avoiding, so we headed over there first.

    First ride never ridden, Heimlich's Chew Chew Train. The picture the CM took of us did not turn out but here is what it looks like. Tasty.



    Next up was Tuck and Roll's Drive'Em Buggies. No chiropractors needed.



    Francis' Ladybug Boogie (I didn't like it when the ride moved over the plates)





    Final ride at 'a bug's land" that I had not ridden. Flik's Flyers




    Two eggrolls, to go!!


    I had to smile at the wonder of it all.


    By now I was needing a snack, so off to the Tortilla factory for my free 1/2 dozen tortillas. This is how much I weighed after the tortillas.



    This is how much I weighed before the tortillas.



    Afterwards we took some pictures on the boardwalk.





    We then saw a friend over at the Cove Bar. We went in to say Hi and he pointed out that they were testing the ride vehicles for Toy Story Mania. Our camera does not do great long distance night pics, so sorry Charlie no pictures.

    It was time to conquer the final 2 DCA rides that I had not been on. Up first the Golden Zephyr...Wheeee!!



    and what was the final ride I had never ridden??

    Jumpin Jellyfish




    We (I) decided to head over to Disneyland for fireworks.



    As usual when we arrive, fireworks were cancelled for the night, so we decided to make it an early night and get some rest.

    Up next, day 2 and its still all about me, me, me.

    It was great seeing you on Sunday Lisa. Although, even though you miss the fireworks you sure get a lot of little surprises every time you vist. I was telling your hubby I need your number so I can follow you around ... dream FP's and canoe boys ... you certainly get lucky when you are down here.

    Oh, and the treat you got for me is gone. I thought it would last a lot longer ...

    It was wonderful seeing you this weekend! I hope your birthday was enjoyable, but by being at Disneyland, I am sure it was!

    Something about those first few photos looks vaguely familiar.

    I'm glad we were able to catch up with you on Sunday (or did you catch up with us ).

    Looks like you had a great birthday weekend, Lisa. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    I love that you call it Der Wienerschnitzel - so old school.

    Der Wienerschnitzel, Wienerschnitzel,
    this must be the place,
    just drive right in and put a great big hot dog in your face!

    I still call it that too! I remember them in Phoenix when I was a kid...and an adult too, actually.

    Re: Pratt55's Birthday Trip AKA its all about ME!!

    Saturday, Day 2, More Me, Me, Me.

    (Disclaimer: When I say "we" I'm nicely saying Me )

    We woke up at 5:30 a.m. anticipating the day ahead. I knew we would be seeing friends at Disneyland so it was going to be a good day. We arrived at the front gates about 7:15 a.m. and were 2nd in line at one of the entrance gates with a light crowd starting to form up. The Peter Pan pin event was taking place that morning so we wanted to be ahead of the pin people.

    The sign showing the pin and artist.


    The pin event line at 8:05 a.m. A couple who had been behind us at the main gate were the 2nd people to purchase their pins.



    I kept looking through the line for some friends, but alas no friends in the line did I see.





    We decided to go ride the Matterhorn.



    We then walked around a little bit before heading back to see if I had any friends (in the pin line).

    Yea for me, I found some friends. The soon to be married YoYoFlamingo and NeverNeverLand or as I like to call them the "Never YoYo's"



    After giving me my birthday hugs they got a token of my love.



    We then wondered off to get some breakfast at the River Belle Terrace. I tried to delay picking up our food until the cashier line was ready but to no avail, still ended up with luke warm food.

    Afterwards we needed to take a stroll to work off some calories so I went to a spot that I know has a great view.





    What the heck, a canoe girl?? oooh ick.



    Phew I feel better now.



    After seeing my eye candy time to share some with you all.











    OK already, enough with the friggin flowers right? So after a few more rides we headed to the hub to sit back and relax.

    A dream CM (not in her white vest) came over and started talking to us and I told her that my dream would be to ride the canoes with just me and all the canoe boys. She said she would suggest it and wandered away. She wandered back a few minutes later and asked if I would like to see Billy Hill. Of course I said yes, so I was given a "Magic Moment" for reserved seats for the 5:15 show. I called Deogee's Mom to let her know that I had just received this 'moment' and we would all be seeing that before the joint birthdays dinner for Darkbeer, Pratt55 and Deogee's Mom at Bubba Gumps.



    Reserved for me, me, me.



    The birthday gang


    Aren't we cute??


    After seeing the Billys, we left the park and headed over to Bubba Gump's where we had a wonderful meal with great friends. Princess Buttercup was at the Bubba's in Northern CA, but she must have used her telepathic powers to make sure the staff at Anaheim knew that we were there to celebrate birthdays. Darkbeer and I had to get up and they made sure everyone in the place knew that it was our birthday.

    Then...(gulp)... there was singing...Oh no, not singing!!!!!



    Then this quiet, shy, demure lady had to shake her tail feather. (Darkbeer did too)



    Score, free ice cream.



    End of day 2. Up later, day 3 and lots more me, me, me and the meet.
