Last Disney trip as APs :(

As you all know,
Andrew and I bought annual passes to Disneyland this past year for our anniversary.
It's been the gift that keeps on giving but unfortunately
we weren't able to renew them for this coming year SO
we took one last trip as annual passholders and lived it up!
My parents happened to be there the same weekend too
so we hung out a few times with them!
But when we got there and walked through the gates I immediately began to smile.
Disneyland is my happy place.
Always has been, always will be.
Andrew likes it too in different ways
but it's really MY favorite place hahaha
So to treat him for our anniversary
I took him back to Carthay Circle for those Firecracker Wings
Remember those from last year?
Yeah he did too hahaha
AND I even videoed him eating them so you could understand how much he loves them!

He literally did not talk to me for about 15-20 minutes while he ate some of those
It was awesome!
I ate the most delicious salad I've had.
It was THAT good.
I ate 2. Not even kidding.
We rode some rides and just really enjoyed the atmosphere around the parks.

 We met up with my parents
on Main Street for a little chat
then we kept going to go back to the hotel early.
We had driven all night,
gotten in at 1 AM that morning and then been at the park since open.
We were exhausted 
But we were up bright and early and at the park before open
for something super special the next day!!
Did you know Disneyland has famous candy canes?!
Neither did I until Andrew and I watched a Food Network special
of Guy Fieri at Disneyland making all the holiday treats and I watched them
roll out fresh candy canes at the candy shop!
I wanted one and I wanted one bad!
So we got to the park at 7
(opens at 8)
and the line was already super long!
They make less than 600 of these A YEAR guys,
so I was terrified I wouldn't get one.

Then I saw the cast members holding wristbands still and I was like
My dad got one with me and they all made fun of me :)
What can I say? I'm a nerd mmmmk?
After the candy canes,
my dad and I went to ride Tower of Terror one more time
before it closes and becomes a Marvel ride.
My dad and I LOVE that ride so much
so it was nice to go with just him!
While Dad and I were on the ride,
my mom was alone with our candy canes haha
She took mine around and got people to pose with it!
Anna and Elsa even signed my bubble wrap!
(it has since completely worn off or I would have kept it)

She's a goof!
But we're also super glad she went to see Anna and Elsa because
she found out that MOANA was in the park that day!!
Oh yeah! So we ran over to Adventureland got us a picture!
Andrew rode on a lot of rides and I kinda walked around,
I like walking around and I don't like standing in lines longer than MAYBE 30 minute,
it's the curse of working there for so long
and never really having to stand in line!
I got spoiled.
Plus I spent basically a year there and I rode the rides millions of times.
They are still loads of fun but I just enjoy other aspects more now.
While he was on Big Thunder
I walked back into my old neck of the woods,
On my way I ran into a princess!
I hadn't seen her in the park in quite awhile!
Apparently she now only goes out by the wishing well.
Take notes, friends with daughters!
We chatted for a minute then I went off to see my people!
I found a couple of my old work friends and said hey ;)
It's still so cool to see people 6 years later and have them remember you!
Later that night we ate at The Cove Bar!
Guys, I've been wanting to eat here for over a year!

I'm still dreaming about those Lobster Nachos,
all the heart eye emojis!
We also got he spinach artichoke dip and the fajita rolls!
All good, though the fajitas to us were a little spicier than we thought.
So yummy and I just want more hahaha

Andrew and I loved getting away one last time to our happy place.
We enjoy spending time together just the two of us.
We've discovered that now more than ever it's so important to take time for each other.
To remember, even for the briefest amount of time,
how we were before our kids.
We adore those kids but I never want to forget or lose who we were before that.
I love my mister and it was a great anniversary/Christmas present to ourselves
that we will cherish forever :)
