Road trip to the Happiest Place on Earth

Well folks…..Kim and John decided if they are so close to Los Angeles they should get in the car and go for a drive… they headed out after a quick stop at the outlet mall just outside of Palm Springs. They wanted to miss rush hour traffic, because they were told it could take up to 4 hours to get there! So they left Palm Springs about 11:00 in the morning and headed out.

John’s good friend Rob lives in LA, so they gave him a call and they met up in Santa Monica. They went to a cool local coffee spot, and then headed for a walk down the Venice Beach Boardwalk….cool people watching opportunity! Lots of interesting street artists, shops, and of course a beautiful beach…John thought that was the best part! They also went to a great restaurant for dinner….and headed to Anaheim around 7:00….

The next morning, they got up early and headed to Disneyland! They started with brunch at the Plaza Inn, inside the park. Lots of food! And they took some pictures with the characters. Kim isn’t very good at selfies. Lol….but John was getting food, so she did her best!

They had a great, busy day….it wasn’t too crazy with people, Kim said…they were able to see everything they wanted to and went on almost all of the rides. Kim’s favorite was guardian of the galaxy, and John’s was the incredicoaster. They had supper at a restaurant in downtown Disney at the BlackTap craft Burgers….they both liked their burgers!

They left Disney at 7:00 and drove the 1 and a half hours back…missing traffic,😜

So folks, that brings this vacation to an end….but you know, they already have the next one planned…stay tuned…
