Well, we are alive and well, and back from California! While I sort through 700 (!!!) photos from the trip and compose a post or two with all the details, here are the highlights:
  • Peanut met Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Pluto, Woody, and Chip & Dale (and loved all of them)
  • Despite the crowds and rain, we rode pretty much every ride we wanted to
  • I ate one of the most delicious meals of my life at House of Blues in Downtown Disney (lobster mac and cheese & street tacos)
  • Peanut LOVED the beach and could have spent hours and hours digging in the sand if we would have let him
  • I sat by the pool, read a good book, and even got a little color on my skin
  • We ate like kings the whole week (and I have the extra lbs to prove it)

Besides some rain and cold weather, and ending up next to the party room (who partied hard til 4:30am) our very last night, the week was fantastic. Can’t wait to tell you all about it. Stay tuned!
