22 January 2008
For the last six months or more I have been looking forward to the Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend. Last year, 11 of my friends and I piled into three cars and headed down to sunny California for an escape from Provo to the beach and to Disneyland.
This year, our numbers had dropped by two, from 11 to 9, and we had one less car, but it was an unforgetable weekend and the official proliferation of a tradition.
We left Friday at about 4 pm, which put us in CA at about 12:30 am early Saturday morning. We made it to Disneyland around 9:30 am, where we met with the people we had lined up to sign us in FOR FREE. We spent the day hopping between Disneyland and California Adventure, and ended the night with the world's greatest firework show at 9:30 pm and a mad dash through Fantasy Land from 10-11 pm. We made it back to La Habra around midnight.
Sunday we went to Sacrament meeting in La Habra and then to the beach. We actually went to Balboa and parked and then took the ferry to Newport. That night we had dinner together and watched The Sword in the Stone. What a funny movie.
Monday, we woke up and made it to the road at about 11 am. 12 hours later we made it back to Provo, where we were greeted by snow, cold air, and HOMEWORK.
