I just had an amazing weekend in C A L I F O R N I A !! Accompanied by some of my favorite people in this planet, my mother, two cousins and the reason for our trip my little sister Iris. Not that I need a reason to go to Disneyland, I listen to Disney soundtracks at the office from time to time. But, for about two years we talked about taking Iris to Disneyland and we finally made it happen on this 4th of July (we are brave).
Orange County welcomed us with a cozy breezy 75 degrees. Ahhhh..Perfect, and what better way to enjoy that weather than at the beach, Huntington Beach! Where we got to watch some of the pro surfers compete at the Vans US Open Surfing.

Independence Day we headed out to Disneyland in the AM. Honestly…. I think I was more excited than my sister!!! I have amazing memories from this place and being the Disney fan/child at heart that I am I could not wait to feel the Magic (yes, the damn Disney Magic!) once again. Also they have the best churros!
My darling sibling!
Honestly I remembered this castle to be much larger, but was still very cute.
I was very excited to meet Minnie as you can tell!
Side note: Mr. & Ms. Mouse who were married in Sept 30, 1933 have separate homes right next to each other! hmm could it be that Walt Disney found the key to “happily ever after’? Anyway just one of the many things I psychoanalyzed as the day went by and I experienced as an adult at Disneyland.
In Mickey’s Mouse Cave. haha!

“I know all of the songs… I am embarrassing!”, “Nooooh, it means you had a good childhood” – Alan. Wow, seriously when did this kid (teen) become so perceptive.
And after a whole day being on our feet, laughing and eating churros we ended our day with some of the best fireworks I have seen, yet! Happy late 4th of July!
The next day after eating a well deserved California style breakfast, we ahead to the second park, Disney California Adventures (pretty much a grown up version of a Disneyland). California Adventures has less crowds, better quality food, and booze! Yes! grown up drinks, that only made the rides that much better! They also have a lot of new attractions like Cars Land, A Bugs Life, World of Colors and Ariel’s Underworld Adventure, my favorite.
Radiator Springs, in Cars Land it looks just like the movie!

I hope you enjoyed our pictures, it was very hard to select just a few after out of 600. This was my first adventure blog post! I promise to have many more to share. I had a lot of fun with my family on this trip, and am especially glad that I got to be a part of my little sisters magical memories that like mine, will last a lifetime.
