I was able to stop through LA on my way back to Jolly Ol'. It was fabulous.
I chilled like a vill with Sam and the Burns and the Flowers. I hit all the great restaurants before my plunge into a world of culinary mediocrity (Baja Fresh, Rubios, In N Out, Egg Plantation, Wood Ranch). Additionally, I visited a little place called Disneyland with Ken and Beth.
Ever heard of it?
New Tradition: Mickey Mouse pancakes

California (Beth got a little carried away with Catalina. Or is that Alcatraz?)
Old Tradition: If you're cranky, you have to wear the mouse ears
New Tradition: Eating your PB&J and Ruffles on Pirates of the Carribean
Old Tradition: Pretending like we're spinning like gangbusters on the teacups, but not actually spinning at all because it's just not worth it.
