Creamy Chive Lemon Pasta

 I just remembered that I never posted about DISNEYLAND!  The 3Bs were the perfect people to spend my first day at Disneyland with.  Emily is a Disneyland pro and knows the parks like the back of her hand. You really can't do all of Disneyland in a day, but they knew what was most important to do on your first visit!

Almost there!!!
 I can't wait!
 Waiting on the Tram
 At the entrance! Everything at Disney is in tip top shape. All the flowers were my fav!
 I never saw a Princess...sad I know, but we saw Mary Poppins!
 Cinderella's castle is a lot smaller in person.
" No, we are not the Fairy Princesses"..."Yes I know we get mistaken for them all the time!"
 Oh me oh my! Going in to the mouth of the whale during the Storybook Ride!
 Aren't we adorable??

These cars were really hard to drive!
 Going in to see Captain Eo
 You can drink in Disneyland...thank goodness!
 Our yummy dinner
 Waiting for one of my favorite parts of the day, The World of Color Show!

This was a nice light pasta that will be a great summer dish! Even though it didn't feel like summer today! It is June gloom people!
