california dreamin!!!

Since I am still not in school for two more weeks, Kim and I decided to take a quick trip to Southern California. Its only a five hour drive, so we left early Friday morning and made a quick stop to see my brother Nate, who is on his mission in the area. We weren't planning on stopping, but Nate's mission president told him he would love for us to stop by and say hi and go out to lunch with him. It was a lot of fun and neat to see Nate working so hard and doing so well.

We then drove to LA where we stopped at the Getty Museum and saw some really cool Monet paintings and a bunch of ancient sculptures.

From there, we went to our hotel in Anaheim and prepared for spending the following day at the Happiest Place on Earth. It was a lot of fun at Disneyland, we went on the Indiana Jones ride several times, which was my favorite. We hit pretty much most of the awesome rides and had a great time!

You can't visit California without a visit to the beach, even if it is January. The water was a little chilly, but it was 80 degrees outside, so it was still a lot of fun.

The water was cold.
