Southern California Vacation part duex

So, apparently I've too busy eating pot roast, drinking and playing charades with my friends to actually organize the photos for the blog. Bear with me...
So, the second day at the park Joel and I kind of screwed up and ended up getting there sort of late. However we did get to ride the Nemo submarine ride.

 Tiki head!
 Giant clam shell!
 I had a totally jenky window that was CALKED IN! WTF?!?!
 The dark parts were AWESOME!
 I didn't realize these little girls were in the photo 'til their dad yelled at them.
 I never realized there were cookies in the table!
 There were cobwebs in the oven and the cake was dusty. Clean yo self Disney!
 So, after Joel and I got back from an amazing dinner at Catal in Downtown Disney we walked into our room to find our bed covered in rose petals! At first we thought Joel's mother had paid them to do it, because she sent us a bunch of baskets and cute stuff. Later we found out that because we told the front desk that we were their for our honeymoon/anniversary they automatically put a note in our housekeeping. We thought it was super sweet and thoughtful of them.

 I forgot to mention that we went to build-a-bear. We actually ended up going two days in a row because I went in blindly the first time to get my E-Friend, Zambi, a gift. The kitty was originally for her but then I found out that she likes Ariel and got her a Hello Kitty dressed like her.
Wine country casual.
 Folsom street.
Joel informed me that the last frame looks inappropriate. FYI he's pooping.

The third night we were there we went and did basically the same thing we had done the night before. Except this time I actually took pictures. Did I mention I was dressed like a total douche tourist? And that it was a pretty nice restaurant. Good job TOURIST! Btw, we both drank boatloads of martinis the night before. We had to search out the greasiest things in the park. This was at the restaurant next to the flight simulator in California.
 WTF mate?
 More ketchup packets than chicken fingers
 At one point Joel jumped up and started recording the park speakers because they were playing Jupiter from the planets. It's his favorite contemporary symphony.
 NERD! I <3 Him.
 He was really excited about the burger, I think it had blue cheese on it?
 Also, the random trash can behind him in this picture had a back pack in it. They called security and we just assumed it was a bomb, so we decided to GTFO.
Giant water hose in the bugs life land at California.

 We also went and did the walking tour of sleeping beauty's castle. I got some pictures of Zambi's Fave villian!

 Really cool rose garden.
 So I mentioned that we went to the same restaurant two nights in a row. It was so good that they didn't even have salt or pepper on the table. That either says to me, it's awesome, or pretentious. I'm the kind of person who really wants their food salted and surprisingly I didn't need it.

Amazing butternut squash soup
Scallops with foiegra, a sweet potato puree and a little veggie pouch. The only gross part was the veggie pouch. It was chewy and not super tasty, kind of bitter.

 For our last day at the park we were kind of running on empty, our feet hurt and the crowds had come back to the park in full force. We decided that we would ride the train around the park to rest our feet and get away from all of the crying babies. While on the train I actually saw one of the infamous Disney cats. It was cute black and puffy. It had just woken up from a sunbath near some fake deer. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a photo. Bummer.

 After we made it back to New Orleans square we stumbled onto Jack and Sally posing for pictures. The line was REALLY LONG! Like there were more people in line for autographs and pictures then there were in line for the Pirates of the Caribbean. So we ended up doing that for a second time instead.
 I snapped this super cute picture of Joel while we waited in line.
 Mickey Pumpkin! Yes, it did take me 4 days to finally take a picture of it!
 Bye-Bye Disneyland! I love you! You were wonderful! I'll see you next year!
 Yes, I did wear my fanny pack the whole time and both times we went to the nice restaurant. I'm embarrassing!

We kissed our beloved Disneyland goodbye and headed off to our second destination The Viceroy - Santa Monica.
The lobby was pretty swank.

 The view from our room.

We soon found out that the hotel turned into a uppity club at night which I wasn't super into.
 We decided to head to the Santa Monica pier for some eats at Bubba Gump Shrimp company. I soon found out that I was weak sauce for ever picking such a place since they have them on every corner in LA.
 I got to sit in front of this elbow macaroni. You do.
 I'm an expert crab eater and did not need this bib. It was merely for photo op purpose.

Okay, I still have 4 more days coming but I'm not gonna post them now. You're gonna have to wait! You'll love it!
