turning 21... or 5...

Tuesday was my big 21 and in an effort to avoid all maturity i packed up and headed to Disneyland!!!!!! best decision ever!!! Sunday after church I packed up the jeep ( the bug was broken and so no air conditioning woot woot!) and drove down the coast landing in SLO in the late afternoon, everyone hung out had dinner and i watched Mat help Greg move in (I was apparently too weak) we all crashed early that night and the next morning me and Katie made my birthday cake! It was beyond epic in appearance and taste!
neon food coloring made all the difference!

Then we packed up Katie's car ( yay air conditioning!!! and hybrid gas millage) and headed down to San Diego to stay at Scott's house. Our car ride was full of chippotle, nineties music, and silly conversation who could ask for anything more!! we got down there at 10:20 and hurried to get to bed! after a restless night (too much excitement!) we all got up and got ready and drove north towards Disney magic!on our way down

we got there at 9 30, sun screened up, and headed for California adventure!! Mat had never been in that park and we hit all the best rides! We started with the new toy story ride in which you compete on all these games where everyone schooled me but i sucked at duck hunt so thats easy too imagine... then we did California screamin, that horrific ferris wheel, Muppet's 3D ( I'm so muppet obsessed its scary), tower of terror, and finished up with soarin!!! it was fantastic but the best was yet to comewe're really just goofs

Disney magic = fake backdrop?

There is nothing like the walk into Disneyland to awaken the child in you and we did space mountain, haunted mansion, Indiana Jones, small world, the jungle cruise, pirates of the Caribbean, the Alice in wonderland ride, small world, the tikki room where we ate my beloved dole whip! and watched the fireworks over the castle it was amazing!!! at around 10:30 we left the park and said goodbye to Scott and me mat and Katie piled back in her car and headed to SLO we stopped for in and out and the bathroom a couple times but other than that it was a strait shot! Katie beyond the beyond awesome person she is drove the entire way back while Mat and I attempted to trade off sleeping ( neither of us are as strong as Katie) we made it back at 3:30 and crashed! I'm not sure I have ever been so tired!Dole whip!!!

the gang waiting for fireworks!

I woke up the next morning ate some more birthday cake, packed up, and drove back home, getting back just in time to figure out what i have to do for house sitting and have a half hour break before work! It was such a jam packed few days but worth every second!!!
