Friday’s Fave Five ~ The Happiest Place on Earth…

FRIDAY!! This week got away from me. Thank you Susanne for encouraging us with this weekly exercise of “looking back” and being thankful for our favorites from the past week. Click on over to Living to Tell the Story to join in…


1. So we made it safe and a little bit crazy back to Southern California on Sunday. My favorite part of our 18 hour trip in the car was listening to Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix on cds. There are 23 cds and we only got up to #15. Listening to books on cd really helps me endure the boredom of road travel especially through Central California.

2. Came home to a nice clean condo which quickly had every inch of floor space filled with inflatable beds because my daughter and her boyfriend made the trip with us and are staying here for a week.

3. On Wednesday I met up with 10 family members to enjoy the day at Disneyland. My sister Lana G! treated me royally that day paying for my ticket and all my food.

4. Spending time with my brother Leonard, his wife Mandy and my niece Hope. We get to see them once or twice a year since they live in Texas.

5. Watching Miss Hope (my niece) and Jackson (my grand nephew) interact with each other. Miss Hope really enjoys having Jack in her sights. She is pointing out his nose for him in the collage.

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

  1. Glad you had a safe trip! We have never made it to any of the Disney theme parks — hope to one day. Loks like you had a great week visiting with family!

    Thanks for the birthday wishes!!

  2. So much fun, Ellen! Just loving all these happy family shot in happy Disneyland! I’ve not been to Disneyland in CA, but have been to Disney World/Epcot in FL a few times…not since I was a teen eons ago though…LOL! But those happy times there, I still recall often. Happy weekend, my friend :o) ((HUGS))

  3. Sounds like it was a fun – and successful week! You know… I am NEVER bored by road trips! And I have actually tried to listen to books on tape in the car… but I lose track of the story because my mind wanders to things that I’m seeing outside! Isn’t that funny? I have some friends though that will NOT travel without stopping at the library to pick up some books on tape/cd! I guess they ARE a great distraction for car boredom! Looks like those young ‘uns had a great time in Disney!

  4. A weekend spent with family is always wonderful. I like Miss Hope pointing out Jackson’s nose at him – cute. They’re the very first image I noticed on the collage.

  5. Lana G., do you want to adopt me? Hee hee!!!
    18 hours on the road Ellen B! Yikes that’s a long time…good thing you had Harry along ;-).

    xoxo Cori G.
