We spent our final day in California at Dsineyland. On the way there in the morning on the shuttle bus, this random lady puts her baby on my lap, while she loaded up the rest of her kids and stuff. She was like "you don't mind, do you?" Nope, I sure don't, so I got to ride with the cutest little cabbage patch baby to the park! We spent the whole day at Disneyland again, and since it was New Year's Eve, they were handing out hats and party horns. It was a ton of fun to watch the New Year fireworks at midnight!

Today we went to Universal Studios in Hollywood. The kids and I had never been there, and it was super cool. It rained pretty good most of the day, but that didn't stop us from the rides and fun! We did the studio bus tour, the Happy Potter land and rides, the behind the scenes show, the Waterworld show, and pretty much everything else there. Brinley loved the Jurassic Park ride, and I lost track of how many times she went on it! There was also a big Christmas Who-ville set up, and the kids got to meet the Grinch, Cindy Lou-who, and lots of other Whos. Funny story of the day- While Brinley was meeting the photographer Who, a little Asian lady came up, put Brinley on her lap, and had her photos taken. All the while the Who lady is looking at me like a deer in the headlights, like "what the &#@!" and kept mouthing "what is going on?! I'm so sorry!" It was an interesting experience!

We decided that today was the warmest and nicest day of our trip, we wanted to spend it at the beach! We love Venice, so we headed north, to take in the sights and sounds (and smells) of Venice Beach. It was so nice to just walk slowly, lay on the beach, play in the water, and visit the boardwalk. We also stopped at Muscle Beach, and the kids had a great time trying out the equipment and watching the big guys work out. I brought a little bottle for the kids to fill with sand, to commemorate our trip. And they were all so excited to get henna tattoos!
