Great Birthday!

Yesterday was fabulous, today I'm back to the grind. But hey, two days of work isn't bad! We had such a great time at Disneyland. It was actually really nice that it was only the two of us because we did what WE wanted. Whenever I used to go with my family we had to cram in everyones' plans and rushed from ride to ride. Yesterday we took our time, did some people watching, went on the rides we wanted etc. It was a great day! Oh, and the water bottle carrier was totally clutch!

So, my husband is as big of a video/computer game geek as I am a crochet nerd (if not more so). Any game we've ever played together, he usually wins. We went on the Toy Story ride which is interactive and you shoot at the targets to destroy the evil Zurg =-) and..... I won! woot! Check out the scores:

I should be posting some more Disneyland pics within the next few days when I have a chance to sit down at my home computer (i post most of my blogs from work). We tried to stay at the park until the fireworks at 9:30, but we were both way too tired and really hungry. We weren't feel the junk food that they had in the park so we went out into Downtown Disney and ate at a place called Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen, it was delicious! I had this amazing beer battered pork which was mallotted into a very wide and thin piece of meat, candied sweet potatoes and green beans. Brandon had a spicy jambalaya with shrimp, chicken, sausage, peppers etc. over fettuccine. Finished off with a bread pudding dessert - yum! Everything was so so good! My husband and his father went to the Westlake Culinary Institute when he was 14 and still in high school. Needless to say, we are a couple of foodies, especially with his parents. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Ciao for now!
