MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: SEPTEMBER 2–8, 2019!

Labor Day with my parents, outdoor theater at the Getty Villa, visiting Star Wars Land for the first time, thrifting outdoor furniture at the flea market, and celebrating Gabby’s birthday.

Enjoy!

Labor Day, office is closed and the sweat after my run was REAL.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
My parents wanted to check out a rug store in hopes that a Labor Day sale would convince them to finally get a new rug. Their renovation is nearly complete after a year or so.

Untitled
Untitled
So many rugs, so little time. Well, so much time was spent in there, over an hour…no final decision was made but they got close with some options.

A big Monday feast: steamed fish, salt and pepper shrimp, orange chicken, noodles…

Watching the Heal, this year’s Villa Outdoor Theater play. It was directed by Aaron Posner, who put on another show Zach really liked a few years back in Pasadena. Was fun to see his take on the Greek classic.

It was also the first day of Halloween time at Disneyland, so there were pumpkins galore.

Untitled

The park officially opened and a line formed walking towards Galaxy’s Edge aka Batuu

Untitled

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
From Wookiepedia: “Batuu was a remote terrestrial planet on the edge of the galaxy’s Outer Rim Territories, in the Batuu system of the Trilon sector. Millenniua before the rise of the Galactic Empire, prior to the invention of hyperspace travel, Batuu was a popular stopping point for those traveling to Wild Space and the Unknown Regions. However, the opening of hyperspace routes caused the planet to be bypassed, resulting in the deterioration of the planet’s reputation into that of a forgotten backwater world.”

We headed to ride Smuggler’s Run aka the Millennium Falcon ride.

Untitled
Untitled
Love this blurry photo of where Chewbacca played chess.

Untitled
You can be three different roles in the cockpit (a pilot, engineer or gunner) and the first time we rode we were the gunners…not my strength. But it was fun! I kept reminding myself to enjoy the ride and not worry about shooting when told to, ahah

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
HEY

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled

The view with the falcon is just so cool.

We moved the top half of a cabinet we bought at the Rose Bowl Flea Market a few months back. We use the bottom half for a TV stand, and this has been sitting around waiting to find a purpose. But I think it looks ok!
