for many people, April 16th is just any old day. but for me it brings back so many memories. you see, my dad is an accountant. and as a child he would work many, many hours to finish all the work for Tax Day, April 15th. we would rarely see him as the deadline approached. but come April 16th, we would go to Disneyland every year. and best of all, we would get to miss school.
it is kind of sad that now days Disneyland for southern Californians is no big deal. my kids have annual passes and we go frequently. i remember barely being able to sleep i was so excited to go. it was a special treat, almost like christmas morning. and some of the best memories i have as a little child. i only hope that i can find some other special adventures to treat my kiddies to each year.
