A Surprise Gift - A Trip!

 Hello Sunflower Face!  I'm posting again because I'm going to California with Kelli and Jenny tomorrow.  They cooked up a surprise Mama/daughter trip to Disneyland - just the three of us.  They wanted to scoop me from home and head straight to the airport, keeping me completely in the dark, but when I started planning to travel to Washington to see my mom and sibs, they had to begin parceling out information.  So here in Denver it's a snowy day while we all pack and anticipate a warmer clime.  It's 60 ish in Southern California.  Woo hoo!  I'm excited.  We'll be back on Friday. The dads and Grampy are handling all of the parenting, holding down the forts. So kind. 

Today we went to the grocery store and I spied this lovely pile of artichokes.  God makes VERY cool stuff, don't you think so?
 My sister wanted to see a full-on James smile and he delivered.  Handsome! 
 And Noah Joe is very generous with his sweet grins!  
 And here we have Mr. Nap-a-saurus.  Have lap/will nap.  That's his motto.  
 On Saturday I had a wee nap and Bill snapped this picture of Timothy.  He really was born in Texas and he likes to be warm.  
 Here's Jenny's tough cat George.  I appreciate Jenny sending me photos of him.  He's so gorgeous.  
 The snow piled up this morning as I was ironing.  I like the screen as a filter.  
 And here is me peeking at YOU, smiling at you and liking you.  Thank you for your sweet comments and your attentive blog reading.  
 Silver Paws must know you like him. 
 I couldn't leave the grocery store without clicking a few flowers for you.  My oh my, the tulips are gorgeous!
 And the green and yellow contrast of the dafs.  WOW!  Spring is far far away in this neck of the woods, but I think it's pretty important to feast our eyes on spring's wardrobe whenever we can. 

I'll take many photos at Disneyland.  I do love the ambiance there, the architecture and the cheerfulness.  The last time we went it was spring break and there were one million strollers to dodge.  This time it should be a little less crowded. We figure we can saunter around, look at pretty sights, ride some of the slower rides as well as the speedy ones (my favorite is Splash Mountain).  It will be a fun break for the mommy girls and a lovely feast of sweet company for this mama.  
Thank you very much for your kind visit.
