Fair warning: this post is gonna be a total picture overload!!! But what happens when you go to The Happiest Place on Earth? You get picture happy. And you just have to take a ton of pics. And when your blog is your way of journaling/scrapbooking? A LOT of the pics get posted!
Jake wanted to take a little vacation when he was done with finals. My sister and her family wanted to go to Disneyland and so we planned a trip to Cali! We left about an hour and a half after Jake's last final :) Thanks to our tax return for making this trip possible.
I did a TON of research on cheap places to stay. Seriously, I spent hours on the computer searching/comparing/reading reviews, until finally settling on a hotel. We stayed at the Cortona Inn and Suites. It was about a ten to fifteen minute walk to Disneyland (which meant we didn't have to pay for parking) and the hotel itself didn't charge for parking (which a lot of them do). It was a decent place to stay, no complaints.
We spent the first two days of our trip at Disneyland/California Adventure. Oh how we love that place. And the last day we went to the California Science Center in Los Angeles and then to Huntington Beach.
