Last night Joshua and I came home from Anaheim where we spent the last few days for a mini vacation. We spent our anniversary weekend at the happiest place on earth along with my father in-law and stepmother in-law; they were there for their anniversary as well.
Thursday morning we left the house around 4am and arrived at the Embassy Suites Hotels, just a mile away from Disneyland. We spent the afternoon relaxing at the the hotel and then headed to Downtown Disney later in the evening.
We had dinner at the Rainforest Cafe, and then we went to see Thor: The Dark World at the AMC movie theatre. The movie was amazing and definitely better than the first one (sorry Kenneth, you make a better actor than director).
The next day we spent first in Disney’s California Adventure and then the other half at Disneyland Resort.
Joshua and I (and the in-laws) got ‘Happy Anniversary’ pins which we wore proudly the entire time; people were super sweet and wished us a happy anniversary whenever they could.
We had dinner at the Blue Bayou restaurant inside the Pirates of Caribbean ride, the very same place where Joshua proposed to me! It was cool to be back there again and share it with my in-laws (thanks Dad for getting us a spot by the water!).
The next day we were back at it again! First stop was the Radiator Springs Racers (awesome ride) followed by another go on California Screamin!
Then it was back to Disneyland for Star Tours where a stormtrooper acted as the TSA on the way to Hoth and Naboo.
We hit up a few other attractions which included my very first ride on Splash Mountain. Later in the day we went back to the hotel for a nap and then came back to the park to do some shopping and watch Fantasmic!
We got a late start yesterday thanks to someone triggering the fire alarm in our hotel super early in the morning followed by us falling back asleep and sleeping in. We arrived home around 6:40pm just in time to watch some TV with family.
Overall we had a wonderful time. Tiring, but fun nonetheless! Looking forward to the next trip!
