While we were in California, Daniel, John, Emily and I got to go to Disneyland! It was pretty much my favorite thing we did while we were down there. I can't get enough of Disneyland.

We made the most out of our day by getting there right as the park opened, and wasting no time getting on every ride we could think of. We were lucky that it really wasn't crowded at all while we were there. The longest line we waited in was less than 15 minutes!

Look who we found! We missed Lauren by one day (sad face), but we got to see Lizzie while we were there. It was epic! I'll have you know that Daniel, Lizzie and I all squeezed into one of those little chair things on Haunted Mansion. And we loved it.

The gang.

The only ride that was closed while we were there was the Matterhorn. Sad day! It's one of my favorite rides. When my siblings and I were little, we used to be scared of that white snow monster. So every time we rode the Matterhorn, my dad would scare him! I'm sure the other people on the ride thought he was crazy, but it got us to go on it again and again.

Daniel got his churro fix while we were there.

And I got a Mickey ice cream bar!

And Emily took a shower on Splash Mountain.

Why hello there creepy Daniel.

Class of 2012!

Daniel creaming everyone on Buzz Lightyear.

Space Mountain. Daniel is drunk and I am terrified?

John and I took one look at California Screamer and decided it wasn't happening. So these two experienced it for us.

 Possibly my favorite photo of the entire trip? Yes.

We stayed at the park until all the rides were closed, and then we hit the little souvenir shops. Daniel got a T-shirt with a Dole pineapple whip on it, and Emily and I got matching neon California sweatshirts. And accidentally wore them with matching shorts. You know how it is.

Disneyland is such a magical place! Although Daniel and I had both been there before, this was our frist time at Disneyland together. There's something so enchanting about being in the happiest place on Earth with your lover and your best friend. Walking down main street at night holding hands with my husband reminded me that this life is pretty amazing.

We hope to see you again soon, Disneyland!

Needless to say, we had an absolute blast in Newport! We relaxed on the beach, had the best time at Disneyland, ate amazing food, and spent time with wonderful people. We had lots of adventures, and I can't wait to go back! 

I wish we could have stayed forever.

Flashback: Murder Mystery Party

A while ago, Daniel and I got invited to a murder mystery birthday party hosted by Ben and Emily Hawker. The theme of the party was "Murder at the Deadwood Saloon." It was one of the best parties We've ever been to! We each got assigned a role to play for the night, and we had to use the information we were given to find out who the murderer was. 

When we voted on who we thought the murderer was, Billy the Bartender (aka Daniel) ended up getting the most votes even though he was innocent! (I think it had something to do with the creepy moustache). The true culprit was the birthday boy himself - my "father" Montgomery Money! This party was so much fun, Daniel and I decided we have to have another one soon.
