The East Coast Comes to the West Coast

One of my favorite memories so far on this program was having my roommate and best friend from my Florida program come and visit me here in California. Mads and Lauren had been talking with me about coming to California since the day that I got my acceptance letter into the program and decided to take it. Lauren grew up here in California so it was just like coming home for her. However, Mads had never been to the West Coast/California before. 

The first thing that we did after picking up Mads and Lauren from the airport was going to In-n-Out. Lauren had eaten there before (but it had been a long time), and Mads had never been there. It was so fun to watch them order and eat it for the first time. It's crazy to think that a few weeks prior I was just having my first burger there. 

After we all ate, we came back to my apartment and just talked for hours, like old times. It was great and we caught up on everything. Seeing them again was amazing, and it was like we hadn't missed a beat. We all went to sleep, exhausted from the previous day and ready for the next day. The next morning we woke up, around 9ish and after eating breakfast we headed out the door for a full day at Disneyland. We rode all the major rides in Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure between this day and the next. We tried to see Fantasmic (since World of Color was still under refurbishment at this time) but got rained out each time.

The second day, we did everything that we wanted to again, but only after sleeping in and talking all morning. I showed them our five minute firework show, which nobody was really impressed with, and I took them on Autopia, and showed them around. We were able to see almost everything that they wanted to (besides the rained out Fantasmic).

It was so wonderful just being able to show them around and act as a tour guide while they were here. I'm so blessed to have such great people in my life and can't believe that in just a few short months I'll be living with them again.
