It's hard to blog on the road especially when you have the compulsion to wring the experience out of every last minute when you go to a theme park. And you go to three theme parks. And you drive two days each way to get there. And you have a new class to teach that you have great ambitions for but don't want to overload the poor students with the professor's great ambitions!
So it was a good trip and well near a miracle that we could drive to California and back with a 6 1/2-year-old, a 5-year-old, and a 2-month-old. The secret? Lots of rest stops.
Oh, and the highlight of the trip was that Sam got to fight Darth Vader and Aidan got to fight Darth Maul. And Mom and Dad got pineapple Dole Whip and grilled asparagus-and-bacon skewers. Disneyland is indeed where dreams come true.
