Downtown Disney at Night

While visiting some of my family in Orange County we decided to stay out there and eat at downtown Disney! I LOOOOOOOOVE Disneyland at night, granted it’s only downtown Disney, but it still holds some of the Magic. William and I grew up going to Disneyland and once a year we still like to go and be kids 🙂 

These photos didn’t turn out quite the way I wanted. Because they were at night the pictures were soooo grainy, and when I adjusted them it smoothed out the faces of people in it way too much. I got a little frustrated.

I don’t really know how to set my camera to make night shots any less grainy. Any advise?

The California Coast – During a Sunset

I love Oregon, it’s green and beautiful… but… I love the California coast at sunset! I’m so glad I got to see it while I was down there. The coasts up here are amazing, but a bit cold for me and usually always foggy. Don’t get me wrong, I’m crazy about the fog, but I do enjoy those Cali sunset 🙂 

Ok, before we get to the sunset shots, can anyone tell me what kind of bird this is? He looked like he was caught in the water, because he let us walk right up to him and he didn’t move. We were worried about him, but didn’t know what to do about it. We also weren’t sure what kind of bird he was and I’d like to know any info on him if anyone knows:)

The California Coast

When William got home, he, his mom and I went to go visit his sister and brother-in-law in Ventura. I haven’t been to the coast during the evening in years! I was so excited to have Frank (my Canon) with me! I got some really fun shots and got one of my hubby 😉 I just love showing him off haha! I will be posting more soon!

Harvest Crusades at Anaheim Stadium

Before my hubby got home people were trying to keep me busy, haha! So my mother-in-law took me to the Harvest Crusades in Anaheim! I haven’t been to one of these in a long time, but they have one at the stadium every year. It’s an evening of concerts and Pastor Greg Laurie has a sermon before the end of the night. It was a warm day, of course, and I applied sunscreen like a mad woman! (I didn’t get burned all summer!) I wasn’t too thrilled with these shots, if you don’t zoom in they look great! HAHA! It was a clear evening and I just love seeing how many people showed up!

Finally Home!!!

Well it’s about time right? HAHA! It was a crazy month, just being able to be with William again, spending time with his and mine, everything was just amazing 🙂 While we were driving up north we said, “Ok it’s time to go home and find jobs now.” HAHA! So it was fun while it lasted but now life has to start up again. I’m glad to get back into the routine of everything. I miss blogging and seeing everyone’s stuff! I have 441 blogs to go through… oh boy lol! So I will go through them all and hopefully it will only take me a few days. LOL! I don’t have any pictures adjusted for you or anything, I’m soooo behind! Right now I just want to go through as many of your blogs as I can and then I’ll start sharing our adventures 🙂 Thank you for being patient! Can’t wait to see what you all have been up to! 

LOVE AND MISS YOU ALL! 😀
