^^^ take me back to california, pretty please!? ^^^
^^^ one of my favorite breakfast stops on the trip!
we loved visiting alta coffee shop, located in newport beach.
i chose their yogurt and granola bowl, and of course,
the signature toffee latte! ^^^
^^^ for our first few days, we stayed at a vacation rental,
located in newport beach. our apartment was conveniently located four blocks from
the beach – it could not have been more perfect!
the above pirate house (as it is appropriately nicknamed)
was across the street; the entire house is absolutely covered in pirates
and all things pirate-themed. it was fun to sneak around! ^^^
^^^ just one more from balboa island! ^^^
^^^ we biked all over with these trusty guys! ^^^
^^^ we had to stop at in-n-out for lunch; obligatory photo, too! ^^^
^^^ our selfie game is strong, clearly 🙂
highlight of the trip? a surprise visit to disneyland with willie’s cousins!!!
we spent 13 hours at disneyland and california adventure,
and it could not have been more fun! we rode 9-10 rides,
enjoyed the new water show at california adventure,
laughed until our bellies ached, and ate far too many treats! ^^^
^^^ picked up some purple minnie ears and an ariel shirt
to commemorate our trip! ^^^
^^^ of course we had to stop at ‘willie’s churros’ for a churro (or three)! ^^^
when we flew home sunday, i was very sad!
while it is always nice to be home, i truly miss our little vacation.
we had such a blast visiting family and friends
and are incredibly grateful to everyone who made time to see (and spoil!) us.
california, we cannot wait to come back!
