Yes, I'm talking about Disneyland, and yes, it's still the happiest place ever! I have been there quite a few times, growing up in California and all, but Matt has only gone one previous time when he was young and can't even remember it. We went on a perfect day (cloudy, during the school year, on a week day) that wasn't too crowded which allowed us to go on all the best rides a few times.
After a long debate, and some hard thinking, we came up with our list of best rides:
1) Screaming California (California Adventure)
2) Indiana Jones (Disneyland)
3) Hollywood Hotel Tower (C.A.)
4) Soaring Over California (C.A.)
5) Space Mountain (D)
Actually, if you scrambled all these, the list would still probably work for us.

Here are some pics from the day.
Our Niece Kalle (like Halle Berry, but Kalle) loves Belle and the "doggy" show, so we snapped pics of the REAL Belle and Q. Devil (not going to try to spell that one).

This is the scary Hollywood Hotel Tower. Super scary, but super fun!! See the open windows...?

That's where the elevator would open right before it dropped. AHH!!

Waiting in the massive (or non existent) line of the Indiana Jones ride.

And last but not least, words of advise from Indiana himself!

Property Virgins

So... we bought a house.
Who does that?
Do we think we're adults or something?
Anyway, we have room for those that need a place to stay,
passing through on your way to...umm...Canada?

This is us trying to figure out what we just did.
