When you wish upon a star...

I wish they sold a license plate frame that says "My other home is a castle." I would so buy it. Seriously think that I could live in Disneyland, no problem. I went with my family to Disneyland back in June for my cousin's graduation and sister's birthday. We had tons of fun. Shane did not join us on this vacation, mainly because he doesn't care for Disneyland. Have you ever heard of such a thing?!?!? I am hoping to make it back there in October with my sister. We'll see. It was nice having time away from Shane, but I kept wishing he were there. We went to Santa Monica Pier and the beach. All in all, it was relaxing, fun and well worth it.

Me in front of the entrance to Club 33. I actually saw someone going in the secret door before I took this picture. For those of you who don't know, Club 33 is an exclusive members club that has something like a 15 year waiting list. It was created to accommodate celebrities and dignitaries when Walt was alive. It is also the only place in Disneyland that serves alcohol. Going in there is on my bucket list.

Aunt Betty, Lydia, Breanna, Alli and I in line for Soarin' Over California. We were waiting because one of the two rooms stopped working. It was quite a wait.

Alli and I with Sully, Mike and Boo.

Alli thought this picture was funny. Not only were we making funny faces, but my boobs look like they actually exist.

Map of the future expansion that will be done to California Adventure. Right now they are redoing the lake between the Golden State area and Paradise Pier.
I am excited to go back and check out Cars Land when it is done. Think I might need to take Shane along on that trip.

We decided to ride the Mad Tea Cups because it had a shorter line than the other rides around. I don't think that we have been on them since one of the first trips we took to Disneyland. Alli took this picture of me spinning in our cup.
And I took a picture of her spinning in the cup. We got going pretty fast.

Waiting for the Electrical Parade to start with Alli. You may not be able to buy alcohol in Disneyland, but they serve wine and beer in California Adventure. Sat on the sidewalk with my dad and drank Hefeweisen. I didn't get ID'd for my beer, but my dad paid for me. When I looked at the receipt, it said "appeared over 40." I hope the lady meant my dad....
We went to Santa Monica on Sunday. The weather ended up being perfect. We parked in one of the lots and walked to the Pier. Alli and I went all out with the beach pictures.
Me sitting on the beach. I didn't take my swimming suit, but I also didn't think that the day was going to be so nice.
Alli posing on the beach, again.
Alli, me, Lydia and Breanna in Santa Monica.
My mom at the Santa Monica Pier.
Me in front of the famous Santa Monica Pier sign. I was so psyched!
We walked from the pier to the Third Street Promenade. It would be awesome to work that close to the beach. We made a stop at AE and I could NOT leave without getting some Pinkberry after I saw it! It was SO yummy! We need one in Utah.
After a long day at the beach, we went back to Anahiem. This is Alli and I at the Cheesecake Factory for her early birthday dinner.

Alli, me, Breanna and Lydia with our waiter.

I left to go use the restroom, but accidently left my camera on top of the table.
Mom and Dad at dinner.
Our family at dinner. We kept trying to get the attention of the guy on the other side of the window. We named him Dick Cheney. After this picture, he started waving back to us and even came out after his meal. It ended up that he and his wife are from Bountiful.

The Birthday Girl before going into the park. We made her wear a tiara and a sash that says Birthday Princess. Everyone kept telling her Happy Birthday in the park.
Me on the plane home after taking off from the Long Beach Airport.
I can't wait to go back!!!! As a side note...I never want to fly to LAX or on Delta after flying with JetBlue to LGB. Such an experience.
