last hurrah at Disneyland (for now)

we won't be renewing our annual passes to disneyland this year since we are looking for a place to live. so we made some time for one last visit.

i was lucky enough to get the timeshare across the street. we went up on saturday night. we were able to watch the fireworks from our room.

hidden mickey!

 got to the park early enough before it got crowded and super hot.

we went to the pirates lair this time, something we've never done. there were lots of caves and other places to explore, plus the cool raft ride to and from the place.

i rode star tours with them this time. i usually just wait for them since i get motion sickness. but they wanted me to ride it with them, especially since we aren't coming back for a while. and of course, it was a mistake, i felt nauseous afterwards.

got the kids some yummy mickey beignets that they haven't tried yet. we usually get the ones in downtown disney.

it was sad leaving, knowing we aren't coming back in a while. we definitely got our money's worth from our annual passes. 

if they only knew where we will be headed soon =)...

hunting for a home

we are currently looking for a place to call our home. it's exciting, exhausting, and stressful at the same time. we're looking for a condo. something that fits us just right, not too big though. that's what we've learned from sharing one bedroom right now. we're comfortable in close quarters.

so far we've looked at vacant condos, new condos, and a condo for short sale. everywhere we go, the kids choose bedrooms for themselves. they usually like most of the places, but that's not the case for me and roel. hopefully we'll find something soon.
