Disneyland 2016, Day One

Last week's family vacation in southern California with Aaron, Nina, Miles, and Mia, included visits to Disneyland, which I think I last visited when I was ten years old (when California was still part of Pangaea).
Man, we did it all--including the AstroOrbitor, It's a Small World, Storybook Land, Tarzan's Treehouse, Pirates of the Caribbean, and (most memorably) Hyperspace Mountain and Star Tours (in which Mia was the "rebel spy").
Miles and Mia surprised me with their need for speed. But they enjoyed the more placid rides, too, and even got their mom to go on the AstroOrbitor one last time before the spectacular "Paint the Night" light parade.
It could not have been more fun. The best part was watching the kids as they rode the rides and watched the parade--Mia's wide eyes as she drank in Hyperspace Mountain and Miles's excitement when Olaf appeared in the parade. What a great time with the best family.
