Disney Day 4: Off/Beach Day

Wednesday morning we took a break from the parks to enjoy a day "off" to explore the area!! We were so close to some famous beaches so we thought why not! We rented a burb for the day and off we went!
First up though was our character breakfast at the Grand Californian!

Dance party through the restaurant!

**Side note: At breakfast we were sitting next to a family from Frisco...random huh!?!

After a very yummy breakfast we hit the road to the coast, first stop was Huntington Beach! It was a gorgeous day, realistically we all should have been in shorts!

We couldn't get over all the people surfing....just out there waiting on the waves!

The boys wanted to do a little pier fishing....but we did not catch a thing! Levi kept saying he wanted to catch a whale!

We hit the road again, heading south to Laguna Beach! The drive was beautiful!! Being a big fan of both the OC and MTV's Laguna Beach I thoroughly enjoyed it!

We stopped for lunch at a small, quaint, little beach Mexican restaurant that had come highly recommended to us, and I mean look at this view! Crazy that some people call this home and have this view all the time!!

My handsome lunch date! Oh and these margaritas were sooo good! Paul and I definitely wanted another but we had the boys plus a long drive back, so next time babe!

It was a little after 4 when we got back to Anaheim and we decided to drive straight over to Downtown Disney for a little night fun! 
First up was ice skating! Lane spotted this night one and we promised we would do it, so we did! Out of the four of us, I was the only one who had been ice skating before, so I'm sure you can sense my thoughts of how this was going to go down, ha!

Levi made the cut, and was excited that he could skate!

That wall by the tree became Lane's friend fast!

I felt ridiculous that I had capris on with skates, it looked awful, but I didn't know that we would be skating!

All three boys actually enjoyed ice skating! Lane didn't want to come off the ice and wanted to master it, and he only took a couple of bad falls! And this sweet goober did his best too!

After we had our fill of skating, we raced more cars at the Lego Stores, snacked on beignets, did a little shopping then headed back to our hotel, took the boys for a dip in the hot tub, ordered room service for dinner, and called it a night!! 

Hardly "restful" but so much fun and re-energized us for our last day at the parks!!
