California 2015!

We had such a wonderful time on our trip to California! We went February 24th-March 1st. It was kind of a last minute thing. We booked it about 3 or 4 weeks before we left, and invited our friends to come with us. Luckily, they were able to take the spur-of-the-moment trip with us! Grandma also was able to come, and she was such a big help with the kids. We loved having her with us!

We didn't tell our kids about it until the morning we left, which was about 4:30am when we woke them up! I borrowed my friends cute Mickey waffle maker & made these the night before so they could have them that morning. We also told them we were driving to California, but surprised them by driving to the airport instead & taking a flight! They loved it.

We arrived in California, and after getting our rental van, drove to Laguna Beach. We stopped at a cute little burger place for lunch. The 4:30am wake up call was wearing on us.
But the sand, sun, & waves woke us right up! It was a gorgeous day.
Then we checked into the hotel & the kids immediately wanted more water time of course.
Day 2: WAKE UP! It's time to go to Disneyland! We did the 3 day hopper pass. First, we spent 2 days in a row at Disney.

Grandma, Kevin, & Ryker are in the front seat of the red car.

They were mesmerized by the parade.
After 2 days at Disney, we drove to Legoland to spend a day there. 
The next day we spent at Disney again for our 3rd & final day.

The last day, we checked out of our hotel, but our flight didn't leave until that afternoon, so we went to downtown Disney & did some looking around.
It was such a memorable & fun trip!
