Day 10, DL Day Six Continued.

We met back up with Mike's mom & Anthony at the motel. Anthony was feeling good, so we headed over to the parks. We decided to start our day off at Disney's California Adventure.











Kenai & Koda walked by while up in the Grizzly River Run area.





Our group split up & spent time in both parks. We all met up at Cafe Orleans for our last dinner at Disneyland.





The Pomme Fritas:



Gumbo:



The Monte Cristo Sandwich:



The Mickey Beignets:



We ended our night with fireworks.

Day 11, Travel Day:

Today was the day we left Anaheim. We packed up & had breakfast at Mimi's. One last stop before hitting the road.......Downtown Disney!!!



We made a stop in the Lego Store.


















My ultimate destination~~ (since I figured I explained this the best on my original TR, I decided to just copy & paste this!!)




Absolutely love going in here.....my hubby maybe not so much so....this always gets expensive!! lol I sent everyone off to retrieve that "I have to have this" item or items & after about an hour....we all started gathering together. We had 2 of their huge bags filled with items. Stuff was falling out because they were so full. We sent everyone out & Mike and I went to check out. I sat & watched as the total crept up.....$100.....$200......$300......$400.....oh please stop!!!.......$500.....$600.....hyper-ventilating at this point......and finally the finish line.......$680!!!! Ok, everyone calm down & take a deep breath.....lets minus the $20 gift card....$660.....lets minus the $34 Disney Visa Rewards Card....$626......and please, please, please......let's get my 20% AP Discount........drumroll please............$494 !!!! Under $500.....doable!! That works out to $50 per person....I can live with that!

We hit the road after this & saw a lot of this.........



One last one for the day.........



Our destination was Fairfield California.

Day 12, Our Last Day for our Amazing Road Trip!!

So we stayed in Fairfield.....you're probably wondering why there (especially if you know anything about the state of California & where I-5 is....... It was for a DIS Meet-Up with 3 gals. Jessica, Kelly & her 2 girls & mom, and Michele with her 3 kids. So where did we pick to meet up...........



The Jelly Belly factory!!!!

The Jelly Belly portraits are amazing.







We did the tour as one big group!! Unfortunately, you can't take pictures during the tour. After the tour, Addy & Anthony got to meet the Jelly Belly mascot.



Now let me tell you, the Jelly Belly Factory does more than just jelly belly's!! Look at this deliciousness!!!













The Jelly Belly Bug!



So here was our group shot that was taken before the tour.



After a few hours, it was time for us to hit the road for home. It was awesome getting to see my online friends in person......and we're all still great friends!!!



Back on the road & we found our old friend.....Mt Shasta!



We decided to make a stop in Medford (we had lived here prior to moving to Salem). We stopped to see our old neighbors & then stopped at the gymnastics center to see Addy's old coach! She was very surprised to see us walk in!!



After a very long day, we finally made it home!!

Loved the mini TR! Your photos are great. I can't wait to be back in DL, and TR's are a great way to pass the time until a trip!

Love that you got to meet some Dis girls! And can't wait to meet some of you in DL in Feb as well.

At this point (having trouble finding a job with good hours), I am not 100% certain I will make it either, but I am going to do my best. Got some good interviews coming up, and two of them are really good pay, so I am hoping for the best! I still have lots of time to save, but it's still nerve wracking that I haven't been able to start yet.

Love the photopass pics! That one of Addy all dolled up is so cute! As well as the one with her and Anthony with Tinkerbell. Such a great photo!

I always say, any true Disney fan should make the trek to the park that Walt started the whole empire with. See the lamp lit up, in his apartment above the Fire Station & walk down Main Street like he would do. You feel his presence. The best way to truly appreciate Walt & Disneyland is to do the Walk in Walt's Footsteps Tour!! I cried at the end of the tour when they talked about Walt's death!

The job market is brutal here too. Tyler is still unemployed & it's really hurting our finances. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you'll find the perfect job!!

Addy loved doing the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.....if Mia ends up coming to live with us......I'll try to set it up at WDW for the 2 of them!!

I loved that photo of her & Anthony.........absolutely love how it came out!!

Glad Anthony felt better and you had a nice last day

Your drive home sounded fun with stop at Jelly Belly and meeting some Dis friends

That Mountain is gorgeous. Doesnt even look real


Great Photopass pics

The guy in front on Space Mountain cracked me up

That was our second visit to the Jelly Belly Factory, but first time for the tour & meeting up with people. The first time we did it, I didn't know Michele (or any of the divas/dis ladies) yet.

I love seeing what other people do on the ride pics!!
