Disneyland Day 2.1

Disneyland Day 2.1

Okay so we realized that on our first day we were in Disney’s California Adventure. After our first day we realized that we needed to take plenty of breaks. Unfortunately all our planning couldn’t account for the littlest guy getting a little sick. This is really the iconic side of the park. We didn’t explore everything fully through, but what we did see was amazing; especially how clean it was.

I’m not sure if it is because we have taken him all over the world but our oldest didn’t seem as excited as we would have hoped about the trip. Granted he did have a blast while there and was very happy running around and meeting all the characters. His favorite part thus far was taking his mom on the Tower of Terror and saying that he was braver than her.
I’ve included for you enjoyment a link to my You Tube channel which shows our presenting to him this trip.Just click on the picture above.

So I work in both Marketing and Sales. I’d like to think that I’m reasonably good at what I do. Fortunately for me my company agrees with this. As a bonus for some extremely good numbers over the past year my family and I were awarded with a 3 day all expenses paid trip to Disney Land trip.
I found out that this place is very exciting and exhausting to both parents and kids. At the beginning of day 1 I went to the gym to start my day. I later learned that it’s best to conserve your energy for the park.

I am about to turn 32. Granted this isn’t very old in Galapagos Turtle years, but I still feel it’s worth mentioning. I like being my age and am happy to grow older. Being 32 I realize that there are 2 things that really blow my mind. 1) I still don’t understand why people don’t like to admit their age. It’s my understanding that with age comes experience and wisdom; this is good right? 2) I don’t understand how I could have lived in Utah for 32 years without using our natural resources to their fullest. With this in mind I am beginning to go out every weekend with my oldest friend to do activities such as snowboarding or mountain biking. I really hope I don’t break myself.

I’m not sure if I’m happy or sad of the fact that I know the kids are going to grow up. A hope that keeps running through me is that the boys will continue to find interest in places like the zoo as they grow up. I say this because I know that these sort of places nurture creativity and curiosity in people big and small. In the end all I can continue to do is continue to provide them a rich global experience of the world around them.

I got excited about being able to get the tickets to the Salt Lake Comic Con for a couple reasons.
First, it was my first convention of this sorts. For years I have been watching these events in gaming, electronics or comics. Considering this, you can understand how this was kind of a big deal to me.
Secondly, his gave me a great opportunity to express to my boys how important it is to enjoy the things in life that you love without fear of what others will think. No less than 10 people called me a nerd when I confirmed at the office that I was excited to have tickets to this event. I brushed those comments off, and they were half joking/malicious, and continued to be excited because I love that subculture. I’m hoping in the end I will be able to get my boys to be able to do the same.
