Agua Caliente VI

Family, Friends, Vacation No Comments

I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t gone back to my previous posts for Agua Caliente (links to my previous years are included at the bottom of this post). This year was our 6th time out in the desert with our ‘people’. We seem to have acquired more ‘people’ with each year that passes. This year was no exception. We had a few newbie families. Yay!!!

Final Counts
10 RV Sites (including 2 tent-camping families)
1 Cabin
28 Adults
18 kids (ages 1-9 years old)
2 Dogs
3 Pot-luck meals with TONS of yummy food
And…22 Band-aids between the 2 LaGreca boys

The weather was absolutely amazing this year. We couldn’t have asked for anything better.

The “Hottest” Place on Earth

Family, Vacation No Comments

Yes, that is right. We, in our infinite wisdom, decided to brave Disneyland on the HOTTEST day on the earth…ever, in the history of the world. (Ok..that’s a ‘bit’ exaggerated but man, it was FREAKIN’ hot!) The ‘Happiest’ Place on Earth was quickly turned into the HOTTEST Place on Earth…by 9:34am.

When we picked Sunday, Sept 14th as our day to use up our last D-land tickets, we had NO idea that it would be Death Valley in Southern California. We had to use up our last day-pass before the end of Sept, and the 14th was the ONLY day that worked on our calendar.

We arrived fully prepared for the day. A million frozen ice/water bottles and the biggest, industrial sized squirt bottle (from Costco) for constant cold mist ‘showers’.

The good news (and a surprise to us) was that – 2 days prior to our arrival – they had transformed the Park into “Halloween Time”.  Disney certainly doesn’t disappoint when it comes to decorations.

AJ was very excited about the day. He wore a Mickey shirt in honor of the occasion.

We headed into CA Adventure first and the boys started off the day on Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree.

Then we all did one of our favorites: Toy Story Mania.  Such a fun game/ride! (and Joe is totally unbeatable)

More from Buffalo

Family, Vacation No Comments

My vacation has come to an end 😕 I shouldn’t be the least bit sad about that, right?!? After all, I have been gone since Aug 6th!

The boys are sticking around Buffalo for a few extra days but it’s time for me to face the music and get back to the office.

I have a few more pictures & activities that I wanted to post about (I wish I could have gotten everyone else’s photos before posting about all the Fun we have had…but let’s be real…there is NO WAY I would blogged even half of our trip of our trip if I had waited until returning home.)

One afternoon it was ‘supposed’ to rain (I wanted to see some serious thunder/lightening action!), so Angie, Joe & I took the boys to the Fisher Price Explore & More kids museum. So many fun things to do there!
