I really REALLY shouldnt be doing this....

...because I still havent finished my last TR from our trip in March.
But I will, because im a sucker for punishment! LOL

Our trip this time will consist of these key players...

Me, Cathy. My DH, Monte. My DS, Luke(15) and my DD Katelyn(8)...my DS Jake(13) wont be joining us on this trip, he will be staying with his dad, due to prior commitments and school.

We will be leaving Oregon on Halloweeen at 4 a.m. and should be arriving at the La Quinta Inn and Suites at around 4 p.m. We booked a 3 room suite, which consists of a front room, 1 room with a king bed and a room with two full sized beds, and two bathrooms. We have booked our ART passes and will be spending the 1st thru the 6th at the DL/DCA parks.

The first two days (monday and tuesday) we will be just us, the family and then on weds my BFF and her BF will be joining us, she doesnt know it yet, but he is going to propose on friday

Our PS reservations have been made...here they are...

Monday Nov1st 1 p.m. Carnation Cafe (for4)
Tuesday Nov2nd 2p.m. Big Thunder BBQ (for4)
Weds Nov3rd 12:50 Cafe Orleans (for 6)
Thurs Nov 4th (BFF's Bday) Ariel's Grotto (for6)
Friday Nov 5th 9:40a.m. Carnation Cafe (for6 for breakfast)

Other than these plans we have none! We know that were going to try and do WoC on Thursday but other than that we are flying by the seat of our pants!

Only a few days left before we leave, I havent even started packing yet! Ive been so busy with work that I havent even started ANYTHING!
Wish me luck as I try to juggle everything!! lol

TIA for all who read this, and hopefully I can finish this TR!!!

Yum. I LOVE when people(other than me) have all their dining done for the first post. It's a nice way to draw people in... I think I plan where we want to eat MONTHS in advance.

Sounds like a great trip so far. Did you have any help in planning the proposal?

I agree you should shoot a video of the proposal. We'll be celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary at Disneyland. We got married at WDW back in 2001. I've been thinking of doing a surprise/intimate vow renewal while we're on our trip, but not sure if I can pull it off.

Oh we do that too. Then it helps you figure out what area of the park you will be in at what time of day

Well my folks, we dont have much time left!!! We got alot of stuff done today, packing and last minute shopping. I even got my roots touched up so the sun wouldnt bounce off my grey hair, lol

Not much more to do, which is great because my husband and I both work until the day we leave so today (Our only day off together before we leave) was basically the day to do everything except stick the luggage in the car! really really excited now!
Wish us luck that the weather report is right because this cold Oregon rain and wind is starting to bum us out!

Well we packed up the car at 4 this morning to head out for our vacation. Stopped in Corning for Breakfast at McDonalds, Kettleman City for In n Out for lunch, got to the hotel right around 4pm, checked into our room and were happy with the accomodations. It is beautiful here in Anaheim and the weather is great so we went and used the pool. Came back, got ready and had dinner at Buca Di Beppo where we had some AMAZING chicken carbonara (dont worry I took pics! will post when I return....)
Just wanted to drop a few notes to let you all know I made it....If anyone is reading, then thank you very much and talk to you soon, gonna go watch the Giants kick some Texas baseball bootie.....Tomorrow were getting up early and heading to our first day at DISNEYLAND!!!! YAY!!!
