California Vacation Videos

This time last year I was just returning from an amazing family trip to California and Disneyland.  We had a great time exploring Los Angeles and museums and the beach and experiencing Disney West-Coast style!  When we got home, I was so excited to get started editing the videos I had taken but daunted too - there were hundreds of files.

Yesterday I uploaded the fifteenth and final episode in my "California Vlogs" series, and to celebrate, I thought I'd collect the whole set together here:

It all started with an early flight and finding some California PALM TREES.

...we headed to La Brea tar pits to visit mammoths and giant ground sloths and dire wolfs.

The next morning began with brioche and was followed by dinosaurs...

...and more dinosaurs...

...and then arriving at DISNEYLAND and checking into the Paradise Pier...

...and then CARSLAND!  I'm *still* not over how cool Carsland is.

We also explored A Bug's Land and the Paradise Pier area...

...used our fastpasses to ride the coolest Disney ride ever, Radiator Springs racers...

...and had some fun on the Red Car Trolley.

We headed back to Disney California Adventure that evening for two not-to-miss sights: Carsland at night and World of Color!

The next day it was time for Disneyland park!!


Their Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is the coolest thing.

We ended the day and the Disneyland portion of the trip with fireworks from the tea cups!

For our last few days in California, we stayed at the beach near Oxnard, visited the San Buenaventura Mission, attended a family wedding, and stopped by as many epic California burger joints as we possibly could.

Reliving the trip by sharing it has been so much fun.  Thanks for following along! :)

  1. Hi! Just wanted to drop a line and say I'm enjoying your blog. I found you the other day when I googled Motorama Girls, of all things, after picking up a t-shirt at California Adventure and not remembering the characters. Turns out, there is a good reason I didn't remember them!
