The Happiest Place on Earth

For our 5 year Anniversary Doug and I went to Disneyland!!! We had so much fun. The lines were not long at all; an average wait time of 10 minutes. We went on the new Pirates of the Caribbean ride, which was awesome. Space Mountain is faster and darker.

Doug does not like the teacups, which is one of my favorites. I didn't want to ride alone, so next time Livy will have to come with so we can ride the teacups together.

Doug also ruled me in Buzz Lightear's Astroblasters ride, as you can see he doubled my score and then some.

We had tons of fun!







Here we are at California Adventure. Doug is standing by the Golden Gate replica reminding us of San Francisco.

We loved the roller coaster and soarin' over California; so much fun. Doug made me go on the Hollywood Tower of Terror...since I'm not a huge fan of rides that just drop you from high heights, you can imagine how pleased I was going on this ride.

There's also a few pics of us on It's A Small World.









Disneyland Parade of Dreams

Here we are at the Disneyland Parade of Dreams. We just happened to run into my cousin Michelle, her husband Scott and their two kids (Grant and Taylor). It was fun to see them, since we hadn't seen them in a long while. Anyways, our friend Livy told us how wonderful the parades are at Disneyland, so we decided to watch the parade. It was lots of fun, except I think I have the parade song permanently stuck in my head..."this is our family, welcome to our family..."

Last days in the bay area

We're finally all moved in and kind of getting back into a routine here in So. Cal, so now I can update our blog.

Before we left San Jose our friends from church threw a Good-bye BBQ for us a few other couples who were leaving the bay area. We are going to miss them tons!


We visited our good friends Amy and Eric in Arizona after visiting Doug's family in Tucson. We saw their beautiful house and had some of Amy's amazing cookies. We saw the movie "You, Me & Dupree" and laughed so hard. We definitely miss the late nights hanging out.

Of course before we left the bay area we had to go to a few of our favorite places. Nations (the best Burgers), Fentons (the Black & Tan sundae...awesome), Aqui (chicken taquitos, yum), Willow Glen Yogurt, Icing on the Cake (Orange Blossom cookies), Andale (chicken nachos..yummy) and of course the San Francisco bike ride(fun)!
