First things first. Scott found a job. After months of searching, interviewing, rejections and so on, he was offered a job at the Attorney Generals Office in Sacramento in the Correctional Law Department. We have been wanting to take Ada to Disney so to celebrate, we loaded up the car and headed out. There were some mishaps along the way. We were an hour behind schedule to leave so I was relieved once we were ready to go, but the car didn't start! The neighbor had to jump the car and we took it straight to our mechanic and replaced a leaking battery. Once we got to Anaheim, our plan was to purchase tickets off of Craigslist at a discounted rate. After finding out that we would have to leave our license with the guy and return our tickets to him afterwards I asked him if it was legal. He proceeded to ask me if Superman shares all of his secrets. I told him I would talk to my husband and get back to him. We did not go that route. An even better solution was to have Scott's Uncle purchase the tickets for us. Southern California residents get pretty big discounts. So we had him order them for us online and send the confirmation to Scott's email (This was all at 10:00PM. We had woken his poor uncle up) Well, the e-ticket never came until late morning the next day. Not going into all the details, after calling Disney and telling them our E-tickets never came, we found out that Scott's uncle would have to come to the park and pick up the tickets for us!! CRAP. Since Scott's Uncle was at work, we decided to make Wednesday a beach day and would call Uncle Craig after work. He reluctantly agreed to make his way to the park (Thanks Uncle Craig) to pick up the tickets for us, but lucky for him, the e-ticket arrived in Scott's email shortly after we left for the beach.. Phew. We felt so horrible putting him out and were so happy he didn't have to fight traffic and parking to go to will-call!Anyway, we had a great time at Disney. Ada woke up at 4:50AM Disney morning cause she couldn't find her binky (Yes, binkies at naps and bedtime). Then she really couldn't fall back asleep and was back and forth until 6:45 when she was officially up. She had the widest smile on her face and said, "I'm SO excited to see Minnie!"
We were all ready for Disney our first morning when we realized we had the major ticket issue so we ate some donuts and changed into our swimsuits
Anyway, we had such a great time. We finished off the week with spending Mother's Day with Grandma and Grandpa Foley and Doug and Jenny's family.
The time, energy and money put into this trip was well worth it. I couldn't have asked for a better week. I think the only thing I would do different next time (well one of the things) is to have one other family go with us so I could ride the rides with Scott (the one's that don't make him sick, anyway). Who is in?
