Oh, that's great, blame it on the little guy. How original. He must've read the schedule wrong with his one eye.

more pictures! SORRY.

















Okay, so this is my FAVORITE example of bungFACE. Its just too good. Its like a little kid bungFACE on an adult haha!




So after, we finally headed back to Splash since the time was up to go! WOO!! So, the line was originally an hour! We waited about 15 minutes! YEAAAH

So we split up in two logs. The first was Derrik, Eric, Mike, and Tessa. Ours was Chris, Judith, Heather, and I. It was so fun. I was yelling, but losing my voice half of the time. Whenever I ride with Chris, I always lose my voice! HAHA.





Everyone was pretty much dry except Derrik haha! He NEVER gets wet on rides, so it was coming to him.



So, after, we headed out of the park to DCA. Mike & Tessa went back to the hotel and last minute before we decided to head into DCA, Judith said she was going to go back to the hotel as well and chill. BOO OH well. So we went to the Animation building so they could go in there for the first time (Derrik & Chris). We spent like an hour in there (I could spend ten times more !!). First we checked out the zoetrope, which they loved! Then we went to learn how to draw Daisy duck. Mine turned out pretttty good I have it hung up in my room!

(if you notice on the left hand corner, its a picture of us as kids, i'm on the right with the pink, Kaycee is below me in the sun dress, and her brother Patrick (TheAXIOM) is to the left of her with the red cap on)


Then we went into the sorcerer's workshop! They LOOOVED THAT. We stayed in the Beast's library for a while figuring out who was who depending on if they were bad or good. Then we went to Ursula's Grotto. OMG. We were dying of laughter. We were making our voices so extreme and people were gathering behind us just to watch us cracking up. I fell on the floor lik 3 times and my voice was almost completely gone by then too! HAHA. SOOO FUNNY. After, we went on Monster's I love it there!

We decided to head back to the hotel to freshen up but before, we headed to get corn dogs over at Corn Dog Castle. MMM. Good. When we got back to the hotel, Mike was marinating meat and got a bunch of stuff at the grocery store to cook dinner for everyone. It was so nice, we weren't even expecting that! He forgot a couple of things, so Heather and I headed to Vons so we could at least contribute something. Meanwhile, all the guys (except Mike), went to the arcade. Judith & Tessa watched the Food Network and Mike was down by the pool grilling (they had really nice grills by the pool!!!).

When we got back, we cut stuff up (we were going to have tacos). Then i took some pics of the view from the balcony. We had a great view of the deathtrap funwheel! HAHA.



Time passed by REALLY fast, and by the time we knew it, it was cutting it really close to go and try to catch the fireworks. We still had not eaten dinner yet, but Mike said they would wait for us to get back to eat. I felt so bad. Its kind of messed up that we wouldn't wait, so we turned around in the hallway and went back to the hotel to eat. Heather was kind of pissed about that, but it would be totally messed up to not eat with them. We ended up watching the fireworks from the balcony. It was nice to see them from far away. After dinner, we went to Disneyland to get on some rides. Everything was pretty packed. We ended up only going on BTMRR. We spent the rest of the time in Main Street. Heather got ice cream and we looked around in the shops!

When we got back to the hotel, Chris & Judith left for home. It was super late, but they said they would be cool.

Monday morning!

So we packed up and left the hotel and said goodbye to Mike & Tessa.

I'm tired in the morningsss.



Here's the hotel first before we head on.









Derrik, Eric, Heather, and I went to IHOP to get some breakfast. After we walked across the street to DTD to do some shopping before taking off.

We went to WoD first and got some stuff. I think I'm going to take pics of all the stuff I got so I can show you!

But for now, I took some pics in the store because I really love the stuff in there!

I loooved this tree that was on display. It was around the new Green stuff they started selling.









This is above the room where all the collectables are!






Then we went to Vault 28







We also stopped by Marcelline's to see the sweets. Then we went home! But not without stopping by Sonic in Gilroy

Whew! That was exhausting!

Okay, so now with that out of the way, I have a day trip that is THIS Friday! I know, crazy right? I'm hoping everything works out because I'm pretty excited about it. The only thing that might delay the day trip is whether or not Kaycee can get a flight out here on Thursday night. See, she flies stand-by because her step-dad works for an airline. The numbers don't look so great, so she's going to drive farther from her house to another airport to see if it will be better over there. Hopefully it will.

There was a thread I saw today that kind of FREAKED me out. Here it is. I'm aware that it is summer and that DLR is going to be busy, but I wasn't expecting it to be this busy SOO soon. Oh well. So, with that being said, we don't have a full day at DLR on Friday. We have to leave around 5:45 p.m. to get to Kaycee's dad's house and depending on when we get to DLR on friday who knows how long we'll have there. So, we kind of planned on the things we wanted to do when we got there. We already know that the major E ticket stuff is going to be busy and we're not really aiming for any one in particular, so we're fine on that. Pretty much this is the main things we're aiming to see:

DLR:

- Innoventions
- Peter Pan
- IASW
- Winnie the Pooh
- Pooh's Corner
- HM
- BTMRR

DCA:

- Monster's Inc.
- Animation Building (mainly drawing at least 3 characters)
- TSMM

Thats pretty much it. I'm hoping that we can get those done, but if the crowds are going to be ridiculous, its alright. We're going to be there in July as well, so we're okay with not doing everything. I am hoping though, to get one more of the new Vinylmation 3'' figures. I have 6 now (two duplicates).

So, let me give you a little bit of a back story behind the relationship between Kaycee and I. We are cousins, as most of you know. Though we are best friends now, we used to pretty much battle each other when we were younger. It was not until about 4 years ago that we began to get pretty close. Now, I pretty much call her at least twice a day and I get in touch with her more than the cousins that live in the same state as I do. We've been close throughout the years and we've been through a lot together. Let me give you an idea of how close we are through the pictures we've taken together through the years.





































Okay, so that was a picture overload again! Sorry !!

So the main reason we're going down to LA, is for the International Makeup Artists Tradeshow! We're both so excited. We both do makeup as a hobby and if you haven't checked out our Disney Inspired Makeup threat, here it is!

So that's pretty much it for now, for this upcoming trip! Sorry to be dragging on so long on this post!

Oh, the makeup trade show ought to be a real blast. Frankly I am not amazed at how busy the parks are. Hello???? Has anyone thought about how great those deals they are offering are? That's why it's so darn busy. That aside I hope you have a great trip.

Yeah I know, I was talking to my dad and he brought up a good point as well. People can't afford to go to places around the world, so they are settling to something fun that is close by and DLR is one of those places. thats just the way it is!

He's right. Just as a lot of people go camping because it is cheaper.

Somewhat upsetting update !!!


OKAY, so Kaycee might NOT even make it to my city so we can drive to DLR until Friday morning around 8/9 AM and it takes us like 6 hours to get there annndd once we get to LA, its going to be crazy traffic. So, DLR might not even happen at all anymore. I'm SUPER bummed, but whatever. If we can't do it, we can't do it. BOO

Yeah we will anyway.

OKAY, SO UPDATE.

Kaycee couldn't make it on an airplane. So we'll see if we can make it tomorrow morning. Hopefully she's make it tomorrow morning. If anything we'll only make it to Disneyland for 2 hours max.

WHEW! I just got back from southern CA (back to northern CA) and it took 8 1/2 hours to get home. GAH. I'm exhausted.

Turns out, we actually DID get to go DLR (in fact we went on Friday & Saturday!!). They were just quickies. Friday was 2 hours and Saturday was 4 1/2 hours I'll let you guys know what happened as soon as I get settled back into the house!

PHEW!!! I've been doing so many things that I haven't had time to come on the DIS!

Here I am now though

SOOO, I got back from the LA road trip with cousin Kaycee (a.k.a. disneyL0VE) a week ago and it was funnnnnnn ! The main reason we were going there for was for IMATS (the International Makeup Artists Trade Show). The beginning of this was a bit hectic because Kaycee could not get on a flight. We were supposed to leave from my house at 4 AM, but I did not pick her up from SFO until 11:30 AM. BOO. Oh well. So, after picking her up, we stopped off at a McDonalds in East Palo Alto (kinda scary), just to eat real quick. Then we headed off!

We stopped at Sonic in Gilroy because thats the closest one to my house and we wanted to get a lot of food for the trek to LA. When we got over the grapevine, we discussed on whether or not we should go to DL just for a little bit and Kaycee called her parents to see if they were going to be busy for a while and they were... so we ended up going to DLR even though I said we weren't. WOOOOO!!

We didn't get to the parking structure until 7:30 PM. Dang LA traffic. So we took the tram to DTD.





We had to go to the ticket booths because Kaycee was blocked on friday, so we waited in line (it was pretty fast!). Then we headed to DCA because we only had an hour before it closed.



We went into the Animation building and asked what character they were teaching and we caught the last session! Yay!!! (it was Winnie the Pooh). We had about 20 minutes to kill so we went into the Sorcerer's Workshop and checked out what characters we were (we were going to do both evil and good characters, but this creeper was hanging around us and talking to us, so we just left after doing the evil characters). I got Queen of Hearts and Kaycee got the Evil Queen! HAHA.



Then we went and learned how to draw our Winnie the Poohs After, we went on Monster's Inc. Eric (my fiance) told us about 3 hidden mickeys on that ride and we were on the hunt for them.

1. in HarryHausens the running silhouettes behind the rice paper (one is mickey)
2. one of the purple spots on Sulley is shaped like a mickey and it is on tail end of him on the last Sulley of the ride
3. On the broadcast van after you get disinfected, there is a hidden mickey on the dials



We saw them all!! WOO After that, we went to DL and headed straight to Pooh's Corner to get some treats. I got an oatmeal raisin cookie (my fave from there). I also wanted some tiger butter, but they didn't have any. Boo. I got a cookies and cream one, but I didn't eat it and forgot it in Kaycee's dad's fridge. Kaycee got a peanut butter delight and a sugar cookie.





Once we got those, we went to go on Winnie the Pooh. Right when we got to the front of the ride, it shut down. BOO. It took us a while to get into Critter Country because by the time we got into the park, people were jam packed to watch the fireworks and when we walked by the Rivers of America, Fantasmic! was going on. Sooo, we didn't have time for anything else, so we took the train to the front of the park. We went to DTD and went to WoD and then left for my uncles house because we were going to get there late and had to wake up early to get to Pasadena for the show the next day.

So then on Saturday, we had the big IMATS day. We thought we'd be there all day, but we ended up going to DL after because we were done around 2-3 hours after we got there. We bought hundreds of dollars worth of stuff, it was pretty bad haha.



















Once we got to DLR, we went to DCA again



We decided to go to get some margaritas and then wait in line for TSMM.











Kaycee beat me after all my trash talking HAHA!!

So then after, we decided to watch Its Tough to be a Bug. I always get freaked out when I watch that, even though I've seen it a couple of times!



OH, but before we went there, we enjoyed the partitions up around all the work going on at the park.





Then we went to DL. We went to Tomorrowland, ate some food at Pizza Port, and then enjoyed Innoventions.



On the way out, we bought some vinylmations at the Emporium! Kaycee got the mystery one !!



Thats pretty much it for our short trip to DLR. I'm going again this weekend for 4th of July, so we'll see how much we can get done then!
