Sometimes it just feels great to let go, be out of control and move at top speed. With two very busy kids, a dog and a job, life is very structured – it has to be in order for everything to work! With a newly licensed 16 year old driver, getting around town has also been a little tense. Sitting myself in the seat of an amusement park ride that whipped around corners, hurled me up hills and down valleys at the speed of Lightening McQueen was the best decision I have made lately. I laughed, I screamed, I got butterflies, jiggly legs, an adrenaline rush, and our car won the race! Thanks to my little joyriding on the Radiator Springs Racers at Disneyland California Adventure, I left pumped up to tackle the rest of my week.
My friend is sitting directly behind me in the car. We decided to try going as single riders to have a shorter wait time. We only waited about 20 minutes compared to the 65 minute wait time in the regular line. We got lucky to make it in the same car too. If you look back at the photo though, you can tell that we both got stuck beside couples who were in love and enjoying their date day at Disneyland … or should I say they got stuck with us! The couple beside me held hands and gazed into each other’s eyes with silly love giggles the whole time. It was very sweet. The whole experience knocked me out of my robotic day to day mom mode and I feel happy and excited again!
