Leigh Anne Goes to Disneyland

There has been lots going on around our house or rather away from our house!

Last week Jim spent the entire week in Mobile Alabama at the home office. He picked a good week to be gone as it was in the 100's almost all week!!! One day my car said 109 but I think that was a bit high! Needless to say I spent most of my time that week watering the garden trying to keep it alive.

Tessa left on Sunday to head up to Tacoma for EFY - I'll do a separate post on the fun times she had!

Logan spent the week playing golf, hiking and seeing shows in St. George with two buddies. They also made a day trip to Las Vegas He is trying to squeeze in as much fun and as much golf as he can before he starts working the end of the month.

Check out Clark's updates over at his blog - He continues to have many amazing experiences and is working very hard!!!

Cali was home all week working and playing and keeping me company until I left on Wednesday for Disneyland! She and a few girlfriends enjoyed their first solo camping trip over the weekend.

CM was having a Regional Showcase in Anaheim so I went down a day early so I could spend Thursday playing with a few friends at Disneyland and California Adventure!

It was nice to get a break from our hot temperatures in California where it was only in the eighties!
I think this is the first time I had been to Disneyland without kids or a husband - it was fun!!

We spent the first two days at the Disneyland Hotel. My friend, Karyn, who I stayed with is a Disney Property owner so she had lots of perks!

We had a great view of the Matterhorn from our room.

We were able to get into the park an hour early so we hit all the big rides first - Indiana Jones, Thunder Mountain, Star Tours, Haunted Mansion, Pirates. Matterhorn, etc. In fact by 10:00 we had pretty much ridden all the main rides! It was great.

Of course we had to go to It's a Small World for old times sake!

And then of course there was the carousel!

It was fun running into lots of my team members in the park that day!

I got left holding all the bags while they all went to have their picture taken with some car named Rustee or something from the movies Cars!

We enjoyed dinner each night in Downtown Disney and the fun entertainment.

After two days at the Disneyland Hotel we moved across the street to the Hilton where the convention was held. I had a beautiful suite compliments of CM with another amazing view of the park. We could see the beautiful fireworks every night from my room.

The convention went well and we had some good training and great new products. My plane was delayed Sunday evening so I didn't get home until after midnight but it was good to be home. Jim was home from Alabama, Tessa from EFY and Cali from her weekend camping trip with some girlfriends!

A fun week!

It was great - the longest line we stood in was about 30 minutes for Soaring over California. So fun!
