WordPress Photo Challenge: Celebration

I went through photos of fireworks and birthday cakes, sparklers and candles.  Then I found this photo.  I posted a very similar version of this a few years ago when my family traveled to Disneyland for the first time.  My wife and I had both been before, but we took our kids for the first time.  The experience was amazing.  My son and daughter were the proverbial “kids in a candy store”.  They didn’t know where to look first.  They wanted to ride everything, see everything, experience everything.

By the end of the first day in Disneyland, the kids were exhausted but excited.  They wanted to sleep but did not want to leave.  As the fireworks were about to start to end the day, we came across this ride:  The Astro Orbitor.  My son and daughter stood, transfixed by the streaks of light.  The only words were, “Awesome,” and, “Amazing.”  It was a celebration of everything we’d done that day.  One long party ending with a light show.

    I REALLY like this photo! I now know what this is, especially after returning from Disney World for the first time two weeks ago with my 9-year old daughter.
