This is Friday, December 9, 2016! PART 2
This is a two part post of one documented day. START HERE if you haven’t read the first! In this half, we wrap up our time in California Adventure and head over to Disneyland to enjoy a few rides before catching holiday fireworks!

Enjoy!

After we got off Goofy’s Flight School, we walked back toward the roller coaster, ready to get on…

Untitled
We passed the Boardwalk games and I remember reading that the cheapest way to get a plushie at Disneyland was to win one of these games. It’s about $5 to play, and pretty low stakes.

Untitled
We observed a few rounds…

Untitled
Basically you had to roll a ball into a few holes up a ramp (similar to skee ball, but much smaller) and whichever hole you got determined how many spaces your horse moved. Zach was determined to win…I thought I was doing badly…I could hear other people’s balls going in and I was just focused on getting the second tier…suddenly it was over…

Untitled
AND I HAD WON!!!!!! I know it’s stupid…but I haven’t won anything in so long. In fact, Zach and I are notoriously bad at carnival games. This felt like a big win ahah

Untitled
Joy!

Untitled
Untitled
Finally after 5pm, time to use those Fast Passes

Untitled
Untitled
Bullseye definitely enjoyed the coaster

Untitled
Untitled
Happy Birthday, Zeen

Untitled
We were getting hungry, so I stood in line for some warm clam chowder

Untitled
Untitled
We shared the bread bowl (which is pretty dense)

Untitled
So warm and delicious, especially since it was getting pretty chilly after the sun set

Untitled
We said goodnight to California Adventure, and decided to head over to Disneyland

Untitled
Untitled
We walked in as a parade was about to start, so it was a little fish swimming up stream situation until we got past the Castle

Untitled
Untitled
But it was still festive and warm and happy, so it wasn’t bad to walk in a crowd when you got to look up and see lights

Untitled
Tomorrowland!

Untitled
Autopia!

Untitled
Also a ride that reminds me of coming to Disneyland with my dad and riding this with him

Untitled
Untitled
We pop into the gift shop, Zach is still checking every store to see if he can find the Tower of Terror pin by chance

Untitled
Almost got this shirt…

Untitled
Zach also wanted to get a gift for his work’s gift swap. He was looking for a remote control BB8.

Untitled
But they were too expensive so we got out of there.

Untitled
Passed the beautiful wintery castle

Untitled
I’ve never noticed this yeti footprint before

Untitled
Untitled
In line for Matterhorn. After it was updated a little bit it’s become one of my favorite rides.

Untitled
Untitled
Let’s do it

Untitled
In the ice caves

Untitled
More blurry movement shots haha

Untitled
Bullseye also loved it

Untitled
Untitled
The lights on It’s a Small World are perhaps the most magical of all

Untitled
Hi Teacups!

Untitled
Hi Whale!

Untitled
Hi Mr. Toad’s!

Untitled
Hi Carousel!

Untitled
Hi backside of the castle!

Untitled
We cut through Fantasyland to get over to Frontierland

Untitled
Caught Zach in another pin shop looking for his desired pin…no luck.

Untitled
Got fast passes for Indiana Jones

Untitled
Untitled
Then got in line at Pirates of the Caribbean

Untitled
Untitled
While we were in line some magical snow/lights thing happened near the lake

Untitled
A view from Pirates looking over to New Orleans Square

Untitled
Bullseye on Pirates of the Caribbean

Untitled
Untitled
After the ride we really wanted some coffee. I was determined to see the wintery/holiday fireworks show.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Got the goods

Untitled
Untitled
From there we found a space to wait to see the Castle fireworks show

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
MAGICALLLL

Untitled
Untitled
So. Many. Firework. Pics.

Untitled
Untitled
Not ashamed.

Untitled
Right after the finale ended.

Untitled
To avoid the mass exodus of visitors after the show, we headed toward Indiana Jones

Untitled
Untitled
We got lucky and it wasn’t our time for the fast pass yet, but the ride had just re-opened so we walked right on

Untitled
Untitled
SO FUN. We ended up giving up our fast passes to some people entering the line.

Untitled
Untitled
Sharing some dole whip

Untitled
Missing the tajin

Untitled
Untitled
We decided to head out. And it happened that a parade was happening again haha

Untitled
On the way out

Untitled
On the tram

Untitled
Back to the parking structure

Untitled
Untitled
Back peeping over the construction zone

Untitled
Untitled
Got back to the car around 11pm

Untitled
Popped on a podcast I’m obsessed with at the moment

Untitled
Back to Los Angeles 40 minutes later…

Untitled
Apartment is still a bit of a mess, but the boyos are still happy to see us

Untitled
I fell asleep in the car…*grumpy waldo*

Untitled
They didn’t blow it! (How much do you love seeing dog pee….hahah I’m keeping it real)

Untitled
So happy to have a fridge

Untitled
Set up coffee for the next morning

Untitled
Untitled
Turned on the heater, threw on the jammies

Untitled
Toothbrush time

Untitled
Little did I know, but Zach secretly bought another ewok plushie haha he said he wanted to compare if it looked more like Tweedy than the other one

Untitled
Well?

Untitled
His new home.

Untitled
Every niiiight

Untitled
Untitled
Ready for bed

Untitled
Untitled
Goodnight!

Much love friends!
