One of da biggest things to consider wen traveling is da weather. Some like to see da seasonal changes like fall leaves or cherry blossoms while oddahs plan around certain festivities such as fairs, marathons or conventions. Da Wife and I have only traveled basically in da late through early months cause it's cold and obviously easy to travel wen da weather is comfortable since most of da time will be spent, well, traveling.
Wen we went on our first ohana vacation last month, we planned dat nearly five months before expecting da cold, crisp air, we were excited to see dat da almanac averages during our stay were in da mid to low 60's. As da departure date neared, we were on an emotional roller coaster checking weather reports and seeing storms, then clear, then overcast, then cloudy, then partial sun, then storms, then clearing storms, then overcast...... then CLEAR - now we're talking!
Our bags were packed with all cold weather gear: layering of jackets, long sleeves, t-shirts and beanies for Da Keiki, Da Baby and Da Wife. I had shorts, t-shirts and two flannels. You know, man wear. lol
One last check of da weather.... warm (low 80's/high 70's) da day we land and cool at night - not wat we were expecting but at least cooler than Hawai'i. Handling da lost luggage ordeal aftah a redeye wasn't fun but once we stepped outside it was nice and crisp... until da sun came out. Ninety-two frickin' degrees!!
Wassup Wit Dat!
It was our first day at Disneyland dressed in "warm" clothes and aftah battling da heat (seriously, it was daaaammmmn hot!) we called it a day. Luck would have it dat for next five days we were there, Anaheim had da highest RECORD heat. During dat time, every single day we were there it was in da 90's: 92, 93, 91, 93, 94, 90.
Waaaaaasssssssup Wit Dat!!
I couldn't believe dat. How da heck was it in da 90's - nearly 30 degrees ovah "normal" temps - and ONLY, yes ONLY, during our days there cause da week aftah, it was back in da 60's/70's. Ai-goo. We ended up buying clothes for Da Keiki and Da Baby on da second day cause they weren't going to use any of their packed clothes.
To add Hawaiian salt on da wound, da second to da last left in CA, we wake up to dis......
Needless to say, each day once da sky cleared, it went straight to da record heat. Da Wife and I were able to sneak away for a few rides once da monstahs were taking a nap and da most 'agonizing' one was on da rooftop of Space Mountain. It was about an hour wait with about 40 minutes of it in blazing sun...
See our smiles? LOL Obviously once inside and on da ride our frowns turned upside down and for those who ride frequently or memorized wea da cameras are, you always 'prep' yourself for da money shot. Hea's ours....
Talk about a photo bomb facial! Only our faces were 'edited' out but aftah 'analyzing' da pic, I was cracking up even more cause there are so many captions you could make up just based on da 'actions'. Sorry Ladies, I think men thinking like men will get wat I mean a little quicker. LOL 😉 😉
