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


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



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


Beautiful Flowers

Picture taking

Gardenes!! even if it was a little small

Beautiful architecture

Santa Monica

Craziness on the pier


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!
