Marriage equality, Pride and of course, Disneyland!

Last week was pure happiness for all of us.  The three of us were on the steps of City Hall when the city celebrated marriage equality in all 50 states!  It was a beautiful morning and there is a lot to celebrate.  We marched in the pride parade with the independent schools, which meant that we got to march with the Kim/Arenas.  It was so much fun and Isaac was the hit of our section of the parade.  He would walk, face the crowd, say “Hi” and then like 50 people would respond back “Hi” to him.  He loved it!  On Tuesday evening, we flew to LA, had a really sweet evening with Jesse and Heather (although there was a big black out and we went to sleep with no power) and then spent about 14 hours in Disneyland the next day seeing all of the Diamond 60th Anniversary additions.  It was so much fun and we were totally knocked out the next day!  Thank you Jesse and Heather for a wonderful 36 hours in LA!
