We got invited to go to Disneyland with Jaimee, Jason and their 4 kids, we couldn't pass it up! I haven't been to Disneyland since I was probably 9 or 10 and was so excited!
We knew we had a lot of driving ahead of us so we decided to leave for Vegas early (and I mean EARLY) Wednesday morning. I got up at 3:30 planning on leaving by 4am but we didn't finally leave until about 5am. The drive down went pretty quickly. I don't know if it was because of the time we left and the first half of it was in the dark but we go to Vegas by about noon.
This sign was on our way past the strip on the freeway, cracked me up!
As we were approaching Anaheim, I could hear Clark Griswold in my head from Vacation as they get to Wally World "We made it, Damnit, we made it!". I was so excited! We stayed in the Grand California hotel and so wish I would have gotten a picture of the lobby, oh it is awesome! These images from Google will have to do I guess. Even still though, I wish I had a wide angle lens with me to get a full view of just how beautiful it is.
We got to our rooms and unloaded our stuff. Our rooms were joined together with bunk beds and a queen bed in each room. The bed was so comfy, I loved it. Alex slept in the bunk bed in our room with us. We walked down to Downtown Disney, I was like a little girl! It was late and most everything was closed but I just loved being there and couldn't believe we were there.
We walked down to the Disneyland gates, I was so excited for it to open in the morning!
