Summer is here and so you know what that means…Summer Vacation Baby!!! 😀
We purchased annual passes to Disneyland in December, and can you believe we haven’t used them since??? Crazy I know!!!
We were intending to go in March but with my foot still being injured we postponed. Then April came and Eli’s baptism kept us busy and my foot was still not healed. Then I finally just said we’ll go in June not matter what! 🙂
We set our dates for Sunday the 5th– Wednesday the 8th and then at the last minute, literally, we booked an extra night (Saturday) at the 1st hotel, cuz why not right!?! The first 2 nights we stayed at the Days Inn on Harbor Blvd. and the next 2 nights at the Grand Californian Hotel. Talk about night and day accommodations..but more on that later….
The Days Inn was decent. It was about what you expect for a budget hotel. The biggest perks were it had a fridge and microwave so we were able to pack and heat up our food for the 1st 2 days which really helped with keeping costs down. 🙂
Yes I “am” sitting on a chair in the pool..LOL! Jared threw this in for me to sit on so I didn’t have to stand on my foot! He’s a thinker that man of mine! 😀 However, not a great face I’m making..lol!
After we went swimming we dried off and got dressed and headed to Downtown Disney for an hour or so to check out the shops. This trip we decided to do all the things we never get to do or forget to do, and so we started there. At night they have a lot of live entertainment and the atmosphere is pretty cool. They have tons of stores to fill your suit cases with whatever your little heart desires! 🙂
They have an enormous Lego store and they built a life size Darth Vader. It was pretty neat!
