Memorial Day Weekend

Happy Tuesday!  I hope that everyone had a good Memorial Day weekend.  Mine was a blast from beginning to end.  The highlights of my weekend was going to Disneyland.  I attended the "All Nighter" event there on Friday to Saturday with my hubby.

We went for 21 hours straight.  It was definitely one of the longest dates we have ever been on and the most fun.  We had a great time riding on rides together, meeting different characters in their PJs at 1 am,

watching a parade at 12:30 am, watch their new stage show (Since we are annual pass holders, we were the first people to get to watch the show.  The show was not open to the public until Saturday.) and enjoying yummy food together.  We went to Disneyland for a second time yesterday this time with our kids.  Yes, we were at Disneyland for a total of 32 hours over the past few days.  The best parts of our visit on Memorial Day was taking a picture with Mike and Sulley from Monsters Inc. (Sulley is the only one that usually walks around.),

going to the Greek Festival where we met Hercules

and took a picture with Mickey wearing a custom from Greece,

and seeing various parts of Disneyland decorated in red, white, and blue to honor the men and woman of the past and those that are currently serving our county.

We felt very fortunate to get to meet the characters that we did and be able to spend a fun filled day together as a family thanks to the freedom that God has given to us through special men and women that serve our county and that have served our country.  Amazingly even though I spent 32 hours at the Happiest Place on Earth I am holding up okay.  My thighs are sore though from walking so much.  With spending so much time a Disneyland I did not have time or the energy to do any crafting all weekend.  I knew that I was not going to be able to do any crafting over the weekend so I did lots of it last week.  Here are two cards that I made with the same layout, but in different colors.

The blue, gray, pink, and blue one is the one that I originally made for last month's tea swap that had the theme "Spring."  I had so much fun making the card that I decided to make one more exactly like it along with one using USC colors.  Thanks for dropping by.  Please drop by again soon.  Until then happy crafting!
