California. The Finale

We left Anaheim and went back to San Diego. We made plans to meet Katie at the zoo that morning and were surprised to find out that she had out tickets waiting for us when we got there. Tickets AND a picnic lunch. She really is the SWEETEST!!

Even though we had a GREAT time in the LA area I think it’s safe to say that we all loved San Diego the most! It was so good to get back there.

This was a vacation that I’m sure we will always remember. It was so nice having all 7 of us together for 12 days. I know that our family vacations are probably limited considering we now have 2 adult children!! Crazy!!

It was pretty funny to read this article on the plane on the way home. It is very exhausting traveling with an entire army of kids but I really wouldn’t want it any other way.

California, Part 4

This might have been my favorite part of the trip. I can’t help it. I LOVE Disney! When we were planning this trip it was a must that we stopped at Disney for a few days. After exploring the L.A. area we drove into Anaheim and got settled into our hotel. It was right across the street from Disneyland and we had great views of the fireworks on our first night.

We had to take a break midday to go back to the hotel and cool off at the waterpark. It was HOT!!

But we rushed back to meet up with our good friends Kristen and Marvin

We spent 14 hours in Disney that day and we loved every second of it!

Just look at those faces!!

The following day we went to California Adventure Park. I’m pretty sure that was a family favorite.

I’m so glad that we added Disney into this trip. It’s probably the only time that just the 7 of us will do Disney as a family of 7.
