California Adventure! Days 1 & 2

We left Sunday after church for a California Adventure. And so far, an adventure it has been!

We drove down to my mom and step-dad's house in Klamath Falls on Sunday night where we enjoyed a yummy dinner and a comfy place to lay our heads. We left around 6:30 on Monday morning hoping to get down to Anaheim by 8:00 or so that evening.

I'll spare you the unnecessary details but it turned out to be a rather trying day emotionally and physically and we didn't actually make it to our hotel until closer to 11:00 pm. But by the grace of God, we made it. And when we saw the lights of Disneyland the long trying day seemed to disappear amongst the beauty and magic of the area.

In the end we were really glad we didn't try to make the entire trip in one day or else we wouldn't have gotten in until the middle of the night and that wouldn't have been pleasant for anyone. We're hoping for a much less eventful ride home. But, in the meantime we are all very much looking forward to our time here in Southern California.

Rob and both feel like the timing of this trip has been such a blessing. Only God could have known how much our family could use this trip right now. As a family, we simply can't think of anywhere else we'd rather be or anything else we'd rather be doing.

Our nephew, Josh, Leeann and Titus rocking out in the backseat.

A beautiful sunset over Klamath Lake. This picture doesn't begin to do it justice!

Titus running out some of his energy at one of our many stops.

Welcome to California!

Poor Titus, who's prone to getting carsick threw up three times before lunch. He was on the mend after that though.

Titus wanted a picture with some palm trees. So a picture, I took!

The boys enjoying their In-N-Out burgers. We really need to get one of those franchises in our neck of the woods!

Leeann caught a fly with her bare hands. She's my little karate kid and she was very proud of herself!

We were all happy campers. Er, I mean, passengers, after such a yummy lunch. After a late lunch the rest of the trip was long and desolate but pretty easy sailing.
