After we had driven the seven or so hours from Cedar City to Anaheim, we were all a more than a little ready to get out of the car. I remember as a little girl, how agonizingly tedious the whole check-in-to-the-hotel process always was in this situation. It seemed like those few minutes waiting in the car at the end of a long ride, as my dad arranged for our hotel room would drag on and on and on until they seemed to be as long as the drive had been.
Fortunately, this time, we had no sooner watched my dad and the boys head off to the front desk than we noticed a fountain practically right next to where we had parked.
And, it wasn't just any fountain!
It was a LION fountain!
It was obvious right away that we were off to a great start.
