Our Arizona/California Vacation: Day 2 (Part 1 of 2)

I'm breaking up day 2 into two parts... Part 1 - Beach, Part 2 - Disneyland. I just took too many pictures of each to put in 1 post. Surprise Surprise. Ha :-)

Day 2 was another early start. We got up and got on the road to drive to California! We drove to Laguna Beach first, up the Pacific Coast Highway a little ways to Balboa Island and then we drove on to Anaheim/Disneyland!!

We had a reservation for the Paradise Pier Hotel on the Disneyland property for that evening but we couldn't check in until 3, so we decided to hit Laguna Beach first and take Jackson to the Pacific Ocean and then show Jake's Mom and our friend Jim, Balboa Island before heading to our hotel.

Here are a few pictures from our day.

Driving from Phoenix to Anaheim.

A pretty snow capped mountain in California.

All the cool windmill in California.

Jackson heading back to the car with "Uncle" Jim after spending a little while at the beach.

In between Laguna Beach and Balboa Island, we stopped at Ruby's Shake Shack for lunch. I highly recommend eating here if you ever get the chance. The food/shakes were really good and the view on their patio was beautiful.

After lunch, we went up the PCH a little further to Balboa Island and drove around there to show my MIL and Jim how cool it is.

Then it was off to Disneyland!!! :-)

This makes me miss Ruby's! I lived in CA for a year during college, and I loved that place!
