Rob and I went on TWO vacations this summer with our good friends, Nathan and Jen Godfrey. Both times we went to Anaheim, CA to play at Disneyland - but we did different side activities each time. Needless to say, we ALWAYS have a GREAT Time with Nate and Jen.
Our first vacation was in July.
We named it the "Perspiration Vacation" because it was so HOT!
We stayed at the Excalibur in Vegas on the drive down.
We ate dinner at Gordon Ramsay Burger.
Then we went to Freemont Street - YIKES!
On the way out of town, we ate at Tacos El Gordo (a new fave)!
After checking into our hotel in Anaheim (Castle Inn and Suites),
we went to the Little Corona Del Mar Beach!
We had so much FUN playing in the ocean and riding the waves.
I absolutely loved it!
First Ride of the trip...
We were able to get a TON of rides in with
Disney's New MAX Pass!
By paying an extra $75 to go with our Annual Passes,
we can use an APP on our phone to get Fast Passes
which allows us to go in a shorter line on popular rides.
we LOVE the new GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY ride
Rob found a little corner to take a nap in. LOL.
Having Fun in Cars Land
Castle Inn and Suites
From Hotel to Driveway
We left on our 2nd Vacation in August.
This time we decided to drive through the night both ways,
and to take the Godfrey's Suburban so we could sleep on a mattress.
It worked rather well!
We drove all Wednesday Night, then hit California Adventures and Disneyland.
It was a long, crazy, fun day!
Betcha Can't Tell What Our Favorite Ride Is???
(This was over the course of 3 days in the park.)
a stroll through Cars Land
On Saturday, Season Pass Holders were BLOCKED from the parks.
We had FUN shopping, swimming, bowling, eating out nice, and playing games!
LOOK WHO WON THIS GAME - AH YEAH!
On Sunday, we ferried over to Tom Sawyer's Island.
I had to get a picture of us by Davy Jones' beating heart
because I have a cute one of the boys with it in 2009.
2009 - they were so small!
I found a better pair of Mickey Ears that I just had to buy!
Splash Mountain broke down while we were waiting in line.
We didn't mind too much. We enjoyed the cool air inside the mountain.
