California Adventures

This past weekend was a spur of the moment trip to California that turned out brilliant. There was something really magical about the trip, and not because we went to Disneyland, but rather because it's wonderful to have great friends that are so comfortable together and allow you to be your self. It's friends that will cram into a photo booth, skip down Disneyland, dance on the beach, laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself, and rock-out in a car.

Things I Loved about the Trip in Pictures

Beach



Sand between the toes



Watching the waves crash



Never being too OLD to build a sandcastle



Finding someone else to willing to get wet




Dancing on the beach



A spectacular crash and burn



Soaking up the sun



Jumping in the waves



Not caring that the water was SUPER cold



Climbing the cliff



Enjoying the views with friends

DISNEYLAND



Anticipation



Riding that first ride



Wearing crazy hat...I should have taken up the bet to wear it all day, because don't I look good in it? :)



Channeling our inner princess



Choosing the right path to all over the best rides at Disneyland (well maybe not all the rides)











Out spinning everybody else. . . even if it did make us slightly sick



Finally being able to ride the Davy Crockett Canoes





Finding that the jokes still haven't changed, yet still laughing at them



Decreasing our age by about about 10 years



Being able to experience a NEW park




GETTY



Beautiful Flowers



Picture taking



Gardenes!! even if it was a little small



Beautiful architecture

Santa Monica


Craziness on the pier



Sunsets







Childrens ride



Dressing up the guys. I think we did a good job!



Four adults, one photo booth, and one digital camera



Santa Monica Pier Ferris Wheel



This is how we wish most of the Ferris wheel ride was. It actually looked more like




and the things we didn't get pictures of
out rocking the teenagers in the car next to us
Ice cream cookies at Deedee Reese
Dinner over looking the santa monica pier
Ruby's Diner (was worth almost missing our flight for)
dancing down the pier and almost taking out a little old lady

and the not so good highlights
losing Jonny at the "N"
only getting back with four out of the five of us

Looks like FUN!!! Utah is actually "near" a lot of pretty cool stuff. I can't believe you got in the water, it LOOKS cold!
