Disneyland! And Reading Limitations

I’m so unmotivated to get up and going this morning. I wish normal working hours were 10-3 each day. Who came up with this 8-5 deal? They were stupid. So instead of brushing my hair, I thought I should share a few picture from this weekend. Disneyland!

We started the day at California Adventure and the first ride we went on broke down as soon as we got seated. I’m talking locked-in-the-seat-can’t-get-up broken down. After some minor anxiety and 20 minutes later, they moved us into a different part to go on the ride. Then we lined up in the 100 degree (almost) heat to go on the rollercoaster. After that, the boys decided we needed to properly hydrate for the rest of the day.

Scotch on the rocks (bleh)

And an ice cold Hef for me.

Once we were properly filled with some beverages and lobster nachos (mmmmm) we made our way on to the stomach dropping Tower of Terror.


How cute is the little girl sitting behind the boys? She had a full Tinkerbelle costume on. Then we took some more pictures before the new Star Tours ride:

And the obligatory couple’s castle picture:

We thought it would be a good idea to get a slight cool down on Splash Mountain, but somehow I got soaked and walked around with wet jeans the rest of the day. At least I didn’t wear tennis shoes and have one squishy wet sock all day (J…)

So to make up for the fact that we got drenched and it was now dark out, we needed some goodies:

Unfortunately there is no picture of the tiger butter fudge or the two Dole Pineapple Whips we scarfed down. But the cookie was awesome. And J was super amused that he matched the Coke bottle.

Then I contemplated a $40 Indiana Jones hat, but thought better of it. I need new running clothes more I guess.

Don’t the boys look like the secret service guarding some official artifact?

And finally, I made them watch the fireworks. They did what boys do best and checked ESPN while me and my non-smart phone stood there taking creepy pictures of them. 

After the fireworks, we left the park, stopped at Jack In The Box where I had my first piece of fast food (In N Out doesn’t count!) in months, then went home. 

On Sunday, J and I got up to hit the beach for a bit since it was unbearably hot again. We watched this helicopter take off and I got nauseous just watching them fly all around. Ugh, no thanks…

And we couldn’t leave the beach without stopping at Lady Face:

And finally we went home and sat outside so I could blast through 11 chapters of The Hunger Games in record time. Then I read more yesterday. I’m not having to put a limit on when I can read it because Jas is reading it too and he’s about 12 chapters behind me so I can’t discuss anything with him! It’s driving me nuts! Read faster boyfriend!

And I was lazy and didn’t run all weekend but I hit the gym yesterday and did 40 min elliptical and I’m going all out tonight on the treadmill. Now I need to get ready for work I guess. I should at least not show up in pajamas… 

What is your favorite ride at Disneyland? And is anyone else reading Hunger Games and want to have long drawn out discussions about how much we love it so I don’t drive J crazy?
