Our Trip to California!

Last month Shaun and I were able to go with my parents to California for 8 days. It was a lot of fun! I am so glad we went! We spent the first night in Las Vegas. While there we were able to have dinner with Shaun's aunt Janet and his cousin Abby and then we head to the strip. We went to the Bellagio (a casino I had never been in before) and checked out the awesome gardens they have inside! They were awesome! Here is a few pictures:

The next day we headed the rest of the way to Anaheim. We did make a stop in Primm at Buffalo Bills so I could try going on the roller coaster they have there, but it was too windy so I didn't get to go on it. (We did get to go on it on our way home though... Once was definitely enough..) We instead went shopping at the outlet stores.

The next day we started our four days at Disneyland and California Adventure! It was tons of fun! Shaun and I were able to go on every ride that was open, some of them several times, while there! We also were able to see Alladin (live performance), World of Color, Downtown Disney and we checked out the Animation Studio (SO COOL!! I wish I would have know about it sooner in our trip!), where I drew Grumpy and Donald Duck. Our favorite ride was the Toy Story ride in California Adventure. It was a lot of fun! Definitely worth waiting in line for.

We did split of our four days at Disneyland up with a trip to Hollywood. We spent most of the day checking out Hollywood Blvd., Grauman's Chinese Theatre and couple of the museums there. We did drive up some crazy streets to get a picture of the Hollywood sign. We ended up really close to it! It was fun! After we were done there we checked out the LA Farmers Market.

All in all our trip was A LOT of fun! I can't wait to go back to Disneyland/California Adventure. They are adding a lot to California Adventure (Cars Land, which should be completed in Fall 2012)
