"God sees you not only as mortal beings on a small planet who lives for a brief season -- He sees you as His child. He sees you as the being you are capable and designed to become. He wants you to know that you matter to Him." Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Donuts and Danny the Dragon
We used to live across the street from this darling amusement park/zoo so of course we got a membership and went countless times. Now, we live an hour or two away (depending on traffic), so we won't be renewing our membership. A few weeks ago, we went for what is probably the last time. I felt nostalgic and decided it was worth braving the crowd to wait in line for the signature "Danny the dragon" ride. It turned out to be 45 minutes in line. The kids got a little boisterous, but Jerry played games with them and we all endured relatively well. I must seem to obsess about it, but can I yet again mention how the crowds in this area put a damper on all there is to do. Traffic, parking, waiting in line...when I think of our time in the Bay Area, the word "suffocation" is prominent in my mind. Who knew I'm actually a country girl at heart??
Another line we waited in recently: the Donut Line! For National Donut Day, or whatever it's called, we stopped by Krispy Kreme and the kids loved watching the glazing line. This line was only about 30 minutes long? :) Sorry; I'll stop complaining now. We really did have fun and it was all worth it.
