Sweet – Favorite Desserts

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge let me look at and review some of my favorites. This has been a part of the WordPress Photo Challenge: Sweet…

Disney California Adventure Park

Unlike Disney World, where everyone knows there are multiple parks spread out over miles and miles, the Disneyland resort is actually in a very small, contained area. Many don’t even realize that there are two parks, not just Disneyland. Disney California Adventure Park was opened in 2001, and meant to highlight the beauty and diversity…

Breakfast with Mickey and Friends
