More So Cal Summer Fun :-)

The weather has been so perfect, though bracing ourselves for an increase of heat any day now!!  On Sunday, we went to Disneyland!  We have a season pass that will be expiring soon, and we are probably not renewing, as they have raised the price ridiculously, and honestly give no breaks, or incentive to renew!  Most of this year's trips there have been overcrowded and disappointing, but of course, when we're sure we're about to stop, what happens?  We end up with a great day there.....figures!

 Vi was so excited to meet Merida!  She loved the movie!
 She was also excited to try archery....although....
 It was much harder than she thought!!!
 She loves the Small World ride, of course!!  It's a classic, after all!

 My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Carribean, and I love that Jack Sparrow hides out in there, too, along with the old pirates ;-)
 Star Tours has improved quite a bit since its makeover a year or so ago, and you get to wear funny glasses to enjoy the 3D ;-)
 While wandering through the line for Indiana Jones, we were pretending to be trapped in the caves.  Yep, we're dorks ;-)

The parade was awesome, first time in years we got a good enouch view to stay and watch it!

 How do these stilt dancers not fall down????  Amazing!!!
So all in all, we had a fabulous day there!!  It was not over-crowded at all, which I attribute to the Disney California Adventure park having just unveiled a whole new area devoted to the Cars movie.  I think everyone was over there to see the new stuff, which left the classic, regular Disneyland to us!

Our fun little saturday

After some chores such as cleaning, and taking in the overflowing recycling, we went to the movies to see Brave.  Excellent movie, we all enjoyed it! 

Merida is definitely a likeable character: spunky, stubborn, but also loving.

Rather than overpriced and not-so-delicious movie snacks, we went to Oahu Shave Ice for a treat, after the movie.  Yum!!  Just like Hawaii...sigh....

To burn off the brain-freeze and syrup, we went out for Violet's bike ride, which means a walk run for Scott and I, since she's not ready for us to bike along with her yet.  She's getting so tall that we've got to get her more confident so she can size up and get rid of those training wheels!

Time for a light dinner to finish off a fun day!

Penny for your thoughts, kid!  Are you dreaming of Merida from Brave, Shave Ice, bike riding, or.....?



It was a fun saturday!!!  Stay tuned, we plan on having a fun sunday, too ;-)

Color Block Fashion

Color block has been a fashion trend recently, though it's usually not so much my thing, there are a few I found out there on the net, as well as at the mall during Girls Day Out (below.)  I looked for the more subtle varieties in most cases :-)
 Snapped a pic of this purse while in the Brea Mall.
 The outfits in the center and on the right in the display window showed colorblock style.
 Donna Morgan
 Maggy London

 Moschitto Designs
 Tory Burch
 Ella Moss (one of my fave fashion lines!)
 Little Ella (by Ella Moss!) for my Mini-Me!
