Jumpin' July 4th

I love long weekends, especially ones filled with sun, rollercoasters, junk food, laughter, and big fluffy characters. We went to Southern California again this year to hit up all the theme parks and visit some close friends.

After exploring Downtown Disney Friday night and stuffing ourselves with yummy food, we woke up at the crack of dawn and were at the gates for Disneyland as soon as it opened. Since we are the hard-core people that we are, despite the crowds, we were able to hit every single ride and even ride a couple more than once. We were lucky enough to also get to ride Space Mountain as they were previewing the newly renovated ride before it officially opens. We ended our very full and exhausting day with an amazing fireworks show and went back to the hotel to get a little bit of rest before hitting up Magic Mountain the following day. After spending time with very close friends at a barbecue on July 4th, we headed home in time to enjoy non-fireworks. Since we are going to be pretty busy over the next couple of months, having a non-stop weekend of fun was perfect.
