I was going through a box of old photos (the box being a computer) and I realized that our family of four has changed quite a bit throughout the years. For instance, there are four of us, but just seven years ago there were only three! Crazy, right? Also, we go to Disneyland a lot.
One of the most telling timelines of our family’s progression can be found against the backdrop of Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters ride. We have moved many times over the years, but Astro Blasters has stayed true to its mission and as such the attraction allows us to measure our life against it—kind of like a wall covered in pencil marks that registers the sporadic growth of those that lean upon it, but without all the mess.
The story of us riding Astro Blasters is actually pretty amazing, and somewhat melancholy. Tricia and I looked so much younger then—I had hair! And the boys, oh, the boys… so sweet and innocent, back before the world turned them cold and bitter.
It didn’t take long before I realized that I had found the perfect topic for the new Disney Story app, so I loaded the pictures onto the camera roll of my iPhone 4 and I got to storytelling.
I know it comes up a little small on this page (that’s my blog, not the app), so for a better look at the glory of us, please click here for our Disney Story!
