well, summer is officially over now! but i did accomplish a few things from my to-do list that i haven’t blogged about yet!
in august, jake and i went to california for a week. we hung out with friends in san diego, and spent a weekend at vidcon. vidcon finished saturday evening, and jake stayed up sooooo late to work on the update, but turned around and woke up early sunday morning to cram as much into our disney day as possible.
through the generosity of jake’s parents, we stayed at the grand californian at disney. i cannot emphasize this enough: i LOVED this hotel.
first stop was haunted mansion!
we met up with craig and chyna, and had lunch at the blue bayou.
mickey bars, a family tradition!
(don’t worry, chyna shared hers with craig!)
pictures with the palace!
not pictured but totally amazing: i loved the peter pan ride and the indiana jones ride.
fireworks from the balcony of the hotel!
one regret: we didn’t get a chance to try the pool/hot tub situation at the hotel. oh, well, we’ll just have to go back! also, i was beating myself up a bit on the day for forgetting my ticket/fast pass while we were trying to make it back in time to be part of the vidcon disney day picture, but now that seems silly. this was such a fun day. friends and rides and food and fun!
