My week in photos :: Week 10 (part two)

On the second day of our trip, we went to Disney California Adventure. We had never been there before and it didn't even exist the last time we were both at Disneyland. I really would like to return some day. I actually enjoyed it much more than Disneyland, even though half of the park was closed for renovation.

Our first time at Disney California Adventure

March 6: Our first time at Disney California Adventure. The last time I was here, California Adventure was still a parking lot. We had just gotten off our first ride of the day, Grizzly River Run (a whitewater rafting ride and my new favorite) and we were SOAKED! Perfect time for a picture. 🐻🌊

Probably one of my favorite photos from this trip. I was just walking along and snapped the photo on the sly. My phone was at my side and I had no idea what kind of photo I was taking.📱


Yeah. I didn’t ride that. Nope! No way! 😬

The End.

My week in photos :: Week 10 (part one)

This week, I went on my first vacation trip in over 10-years. The husband won a trip to Disneyland last year at his holiday work party and we couldn't wait to go. The last time I went to Disneyland was back in the 80's. The place is looking a bit different now-a-days.

There are so many photos (and videos too) from this week, way too many to share in just one post.


Sunday


After driving the entire day, we finally made it to California. We checked into the hotel and took a walk in search of dinner. We settled on Bubba Gump. We don’t have them in AZ and the husband had never eaten there before. 🍤

I had hoped that the flowering trees would still be in bloom when we got to Disneyland and I was not disappointed. There were still a few left! 🌸

Look at those happy faces! They have no idea what’s in store for them. Disneyland as an adult is so very different. 😂

I was told that I must get a Dole Whip. So, that is exactly what I did.🍍

Because there is no such thing as too many shoe pictures. How awesome is that tiled floor, though? 😍

My week in photos :: Week 9

Not many pictures were taken this week. I was busy getting ready for my first vacation in decades while trying to get caught up at work. All of this meant lots of caffeine was a necessity. Good thing my work now has a Starbucks.


Tuesday

Hello, Starbucks. Please, take my money. 😜

Look! There’s a little matching car picture on the dash. Cars are so fancy now-a-days. My poor 2000 Honda is so basic compared to this 2018 rental. 🚘

Changes?

All my blog photos are hosted on Flickr.

Flickr has been sold to SmugMug.

Hopefully, nothing changes with this blog once SmugMug takes over Flickr at the end of May.

So, if you show up one day and there are no longer any pictures on the blog, then you will know what happened.

My week in photos :: Week 8

This week was pretty flowery.


Sunday

One of these days the backyard will be something more than just a place to take pictures of clouds and sunsets and shoes. 📷

The neighborhood grocery store got in a plethora of orchids. I see an overabundance of orchid photos in my future (and in yours too). 😉

What’s happening? What’s going on here? Where are all these waves coming from? This has never happened to me before. I guess 100% humidity is actually good for something.

Yay! Still no weeds in the backyard. I really got my money’s worth hiring someone to come and pull them all. Some were taller than my head. I hope the weeds stay away for a very long time. 🌾
