- Sunday-wine and dine half
- Mon and tues-park time
- Weds-fly back and get stranded in Denver for 2 hours before having class until 10PM
- Thurs-work and the football game which went until 1030
- Fri-rest of parents weekend at work and finish packing and prepping for avengers. Tried to run and couldn't so I went into beast mode-heating pads as icyhot did the trick.
Friday night we went to dinner at a new Italian place to us called Carmine's and it was Delish! And huge portions too. Afterwards I did my typical ritual of going to get a Ritas water ice (gotta carbload!). I had the gingerbread with vanilla ice cream and it was amazing!!! We both passed out at 930 and I woke up at 7 to literally stretch and roll for over an hour. It made a huge difference.
Devin and Brian picked us up at 10 and we headed down to Anaheim. No major traffic but when we exited it was a dead stop. The worst traffic I've ever seen going to Disneyland. Instead of waiting an hour to get into the garage, we decided to go to the hotel to check in and walk over to the Expo.
Well in the whole issue of checking in, I forgot my ID in the car! Ugh. Meaning I would have to come back to get my stuff.
Afterwards we had lunch at Tangeroa Terrace (quick and easy) before I went back to drop off all of the expo stuff and get my ID.
Back to the expo where I finally got my stuff and Ralph bought a pair of Goofy shoes! We met up with Chris and Mallory and shopped some more for random expo items.
We headed to DCA because Disneyland was out of control and grabbed some ice cream before waiting for Viva Navidad-the best part of Christmas! Then we rode little mermaid and we're trying to find other short lines but they did not exist. We wandered over to the Backlot and saw the Mad T Party band rehearsing without costumes or makeup-crazy!
We decided to do an early dinner at 515 of stir fry so we could see the opening set of MTP and head to bed. We ended up doing tower of terror and a second set and headed out at 730. Well by the time we got to the car, got water and powerade and got to the hotel and got settled. It was 9. A bit too late. I was pretty tired the next morning and I definitely learned my lesson- stick to the plan!!
Next we will recap the race!
