Which is nowhere near Huntington Beach. When Theresa was giving me driving directions, I was a little confused at first. It’s named after Henry Huntington.
We’ve lived here in Los Angeles for almost 8 years now, but had never been up to visit. Having family come to town makes you a lot more active and you get to see lots of new stuff too.
Still having some time left in the day, we headed over to Downtown Disney. Rich and Chi stayed at home while the rest of us went to Anaheim. I’d seen reports that Disneyland was super crowded and had even closed their gates, so I was sure Downtown Disney was going to be crowded.
Everyone liked my suggestion that we wear some of my favorite Christmas Disney hats.
Seems like the days are packed with the family in town. On the 28th we all headed out to Aquarium of the Pacific, a local aquarium down in Long Beach.
We mostly hung out around the house today, but we did take a trip down to the beach.
Here are some very brave kids.
Run Away!!! Run Away!!!
After opening presents with the family, the kids were anxious to get out of the house and do something. Luckily there is a small park not far away. Theresa took the kids over early and I came shortly after. I got a phone call before I left though that I needed to bring an ice pack. Apparently the kids were playing a game where you close your eyes and chase each other and Austin ran smack into the slide.
Everyone flew in on Christmas day (except Rich and Chi who got bumped and earned a nice chunk of change for it). Once Rich and Chi arrived Theresa and I sent everyone to their rooms and got everything set up.
A very Merry Christmas morning to everyone!
Here’s our Christmas stockings. And even our tikis are getting into the spirit.
This has just been a big week for us going to see shows. Chanticleer on Thursday, Cirque du Soleil on Sunday, and then Thursday we made plans to fly to Vegas to see the Lion King.
