VDay weekend in So Cal

This last weekend was amazing. It involved sunny Southern Cali, seeing our Arizona family/friends, AND being at the happiest place on earth. It all came about when some of Owen's sisters, their kids and his mom were headed over to Disneyland for the weekend. Luckily, we found out Owen was working about 30 min. away from Disneyland that week. So last minute, I convinced him to let me drive down on Thursday to meet up with him and everyone else. It was perfect timing!

So I set up arrangements with a pet sitter. (Pet sitter = someone who comes in to check in on the dogs/walk them/feed & water them). Totally worth the $20 a day to make sure the dogs weren't going crazy while we were gone.

After an only 4 1/2 hour drive, I was in San Bernadino with my love. The next day, Owen had to finish up with work, so I headed over to Disneyland to meet up with his family.
I was soo happy to see a familiar faces! I've missed our families so much since we moved out here.

We started off over at California Adventures (I had never been before). The first ride I went on was Tower of Terror.
Bad idea for me. I honestly hate rides that just drop. You can tell from the picture below I was I have no idea how people can smile through this like it's fun or something.

I love Irelyn! I was so glad she was happy to see me too. We killed it on the Toy Story ride.

The whole group: Me, Irelyn, Dawn, Brae, Loch, Linda, Steph, Nate

More California Adventures...

Finally, Owen finished with work and met up with us for the rest of the day.

Take 2 : Tower of Terror Can you belive Owen convinced me to go on this again? Still not fun...

We finished up the night at Disneyland with Emily and Levi!

Love Disneyland Fireworks


We spent the rest of the weekend staying in Hunington Beach. We met up with Emily and Levi to play on the beach, shop and eat lots of yummy food. We fell in love with this beach and can't wait to go back.

Oh and Owen finally found a surf board and wet suit he liked. Hot right? Poor kid is not a big fan of a wet suit...I guess that's what happens when you're used to surfing in Hawaii.

Thank you Southern Cali. for an amazing trip.
