Special Times and Happy Places

Welcome to Friday Fave Five, Willow's Week in review.  I missed posting my faves last week.  And I really do mean that-- I missed the opportunity to share with others what I choose to focus on during the week--events and happenings for which I am grateful and thankful.  I was mostly offline, meandering around my home and wending my way south almost to the international border with Mexico.  But I'm back this week and linking to Susanne's blog to post my Friday Fave Fives.

1. Spring break:  two weeks.  Sitting in my favorite comfy chair reading several books, cup of coffee and knitting project nearby, for hours and hours: priceless!

2. Spending Easter Weekend in San Diego:  four hours driving in the car, some of it along the most beautiful coastline in the world.  Saturday afternoon baby shower for a friend and Sunday morning Easter service: priceless!

3. Walking on the beach: two hours.  Strolling with my girl and her dog:  priceless!


4. A train ride from San Diego: $32.  The views of the Pacific Ocean from the train windows:  priceless!

5. Friday we will be playing at the Happiest Place on Earth with #1 Son and his wife!  Receiving comp. tickets to Disneyland and California Adventure:  mega bucks.  Seeing my son for the first time in almost eight months: priceless!  (This explains why I may not get around in a timely manner to visit other participants in FFF, but I'll do my best.)

Happy Times and Happy Week!  Do you have anything fun planned?

It sounds like you had a joyful Easter, Willow! Enjoy your visit with your son. I just came back from spending Easter with mine and his family. It was so wonderful to hold our new grandson for the first time!

I agree 110% with you on the beach and San Diego, but its hard for me to call Disney the happiest place on earth, it always leaves me feeling rather stressed. But I think I would be willing to go again if I could go free ;)

I'm glad you enjoyed Easter and your time in San Diego. I sure do miss the coastline drive and the beautiful West Coast!

How nice to have tickets to Disney! Have a wonderful time with your son, and say hi to Mickey for me. :)

Totally agree with one and three.

Once again, I feel that you are truly a kindred spirit. Yay, to all of your reasons for enjoying your vacation. I'm not a huge Disneyland fan, but it is so much fun to go with little ones. My son loves to remember me once telling him while we were there,and we eating a lunch we'd brought along, "Don't eat too much healthy stuff; save room for churros and corn dogs."

Those are some wonderful things to feel happy about! I love that train trip, too - and any day when I can get sand between my toes is a good day in my book :)

I love "Soarin over California". It's so fun! And feels so real. It's my favorite, too.

I love the picture of your daughter and the dog on that nice flat empty beach.

Went to La Jolla with my mother last weekend. Hope to get some pictures up soon.
