The Happiest Vacation on Earth

After much transition in our lives...okay, in the mist of transition of our lives (since Christina is still looking for a job and Ian is gearing up for traveling season at his work), we were able to take an amazing relaxing vacation at Disneyland. There is just something about that place. It is hard to explain. The one thing we know for sure is that it is the place where we can escape from the everyday life and just have fun.

The first day consisted of us driving up and then exploring the concierge lounge, which Ian was able to shmooze and get us access to. This meant free snacks and the abilitiy to check out any Disney DVD of our choice. The first night was 20, 000 Leagues Under the Sea and The Three Caballaros. One very cool thing about our room was that we could sit and watch the fireworks from our window. It was fantastic.

The next day: we got up, went to the lounge for breakfast, rode on the new Submarine Ride (fantastic), then Space Mountain, then Buzz Light Year, then back to the hotel where Christina took a nap, and then woke up, got a snack, went to the pool, then to dinner, then to Pirates of Caribbean, then back to the hotel, got a snack, and checked out Atlantis and Cinderella 3. (You have one guess who picked which movie.)

The next day: we got up, went to the lounge for breakfast, and then rode a ton of rides because guess what? THE HEAT FINALLY BROKE!!!! It was such a beautiful day and not a lot of people at the park since everyone was back at school. We were able to practically walk right onto every ride went on.

This was a much needed vacation. We have been so busy lately. It was just just fun to drive a few hours and enjoy the Disney Magic. It was Amazing!!!

I am so glad that you had a nice vacation friend! I'll talk to you soon.

Wow! Once I ask this question you'll have two comments. Are you going to send me a note or something like that to let me know when to read your latest blog? Furrow is always trying to get me to do this kind of stuff, but it stresses me out. Reminders would be nice.

Your trip sounds PERFECT! I was so hoping that you would have some much-needed down time together. Now we need to plan a group trip to the DL :-)
