I did .
We went to Disneyland last weekend and stayed the night in the fancy Disney resort hotel . It was a lot of fun and everyone had a good time but Vaughn actually knew what was going on this time and he went out of his mind . We had one day of Disneyland and the second day at the California Adventure park . On the second day it was a rainy but we met some friends who were celebrating a birthday and we had a great time in the bad weather . It only rained for the first half of the day and it was actually super fun running from ride to ride , trying to find a ride that was long enough and inside enough to keep the rain off .
By about 3:00 it had dried up and all the rest of the birthday guests had arrived and we got to enjoy some cold but dry theme park good times .
That night we went to elecTRONica and saw robot dancing girls ( Vaughn's words ) and lots of neon lights and laser beams . So this was the last time we can take Vaughn to Disneyland for free , and we're thinking about annual passes for next time . I'm thinking now that he knows how much fun it is up there that he's going to be wanting to be going a lot more , and that will make it a little less painful in the wallet .
All said and done it was a little pricey , but the crazy memories that were revisited on me and the fun new memories that we made were worth it .
So yes , you can still ride in the nose of the Monorail . Amy had no idea and was impressed with my knowledge of the Monorail seating arrangements . . .
You can still find the exact physical center of the park , if you know where to look for it . . .
You can still drive around in a submarine . . .
And during the Christmas season , you can still wonder if the largest pile of gifts you've ever seen ( in your long 3 years of Christmases ) , contain anything that might belong to you . . .
Amy's boss bought us the room for her 15 years of working the sales department grind at Foundation Skate Co. Thanks Tod , it was a blast in no small part because of you . You're a good guy and a good friend . . . here's to many more !
