This past weekend, we headed down to Southern California. Although we did not stay as long as we would have liked, we still had a great time.
Gloria’s cousin works as a researcher for the San Diego zoo, so he gave all of us free tickets. I knew that it was going to be a big zoo, but I didn’t realize it was that HUGE! We pretty much walked to see all of the exhibits, which was extremely tiring, but it was great exercise. I enjoyed learning about all of the different animals that reside there. My personal favorite exhibits were the elephants, the okapi, and hippopotamuses.
The following day, we woke up bright and early to drive to Disneyland. It was just as fun as the zoo, but it was definitely more tiring. It’s supposedly the happiest place on Earth, and I totally understand why. There is just something magical about being there. I had a blast on some of my favorite rides – the Matterhorn and the Indiana Jones rides, which is surprising because I’m not a fan of rides!
All in all, it was a great mini vacation. I most especially enjoyed our five star hotel resort in Huntington for the much needed rest and relaxation!
Now, I’m trying to get back into the swing of things by finishing work deadlines. Time to create!
Life is good.
