Welcome to the photo journal entry of my 28th Birthday.
Naturally Ben and I had to visit Disneyland (note my birthday button). The Mickey Mouse ears were actually from DisneyWorld, a gift from Brandon. Yes, there is a name embroidered on the back... and it might be Steve.
|Luckily the snapdragons were out. My favorite puppet like flower on this planet.|
|I think this was the first 80 degree birthday I can remember. Magical.|
|"It's a warm night, she'll be alright."|
Disneyland's own Big Ben from the Peter Pan ride, you can even see the Matterhorn in the background.
|We enjoyed a Mickey Mouse pretzel, it was surprisingly good. |
I may have enjoyed mine with mustard and cheese.
|The Dumbo ride isn't very good, but it sure does look the part on a sunny birthday.|
We left Disneyland because Ben had a surprise for me... The Maritime Museum in San Pedro!
|They had interesting exhibits, like so.|
|I will admit my favorite part was the model ships.|
|But I enjoyed the larger ones too.|
|These are worry birds, but I call them blue pine cone birds. |
When your loved one is at sea you are supposed to put it on your night stand.
|Even though I was having fun sometimes there's stormy weather when my sisters and I aren't together....|
|This is the actual model ship they used for the original 'Poseidon Adventure' in 1972.|
It weights over a ton and during filming they had the propellers and smoke stacks working.
|It's designed to be a perfect miniature to the scale of the Queen Mary, as seen in the painting, |
and referenced in Arrested Development.
|I love Miniatures!!|
|All in all what a Happy Birthday!|
