A Big Day!

Parker has been dying to ride Disneyland's "Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Tracks" since he was old enough to notice what a train was. Every time we go to our favorite park we measure him, an event usually followed by greater or lesser feelings of disappointment and distress. The boy has learned to cope - even with the sad news at the beginning of the summer that he was finally tall enough, but that the ride was closed for the day. But Thursday was different. Thursday he was officially 40 inches AND the train was running! I only wish I had a photo of the jumping and shouting that followed the measure documented below. And yes, the ride was every bit as wonderful as he had hoped. So wonderful that he rode twice in a row!
