the bean and i managed to squeeze in two last visits to disneyland before our passes were blocked for the holiday period. and for the first one, we got to stay at the hyatt down the street while the hub threw a party for his stinky old man cigar friends at home. on our way to our room from the lobby we came across an arcade with a ton of claw machines, and of course the bean HAD to shoot her shot.
it's hard to tell from this picture, but the bean really does love staying in hotels.
we slept in a bit the next morning, even though i'd really tried to talk them into getting up for rope drop. or at least a little close to rope drop. but nope - we ended up taking full advantage of that hotel room and left right at checkout time. and as we made our way towards the parking lot, the bean couldn't pass these without stopping for photos:
we'd reserved our entry into california adventure, so we stopped for some obligatory tree photos. first, a selfie:
and then i got the bean to recreate an old photo.
we stopped to grab something to eat at the shawarma palace too kiosk. this was part of the wakanda forever celebration - the wakandan roasted pork wrap, a flatbread filled with spiced pork and black garlic sauce. it was a little greasy for me, but really flavorful and the bean really liked it.
