san juan capistrano

my boyfriend bailed on me at the last minute for our trip to san juan capistrano...which was very disappointing to say the least! i couldn't get out of the hotel registration so i dragged my youngest daughter emily, slightly kicking and screaming but guaranteeing her she'd have a good time!!

i lucked out with my guarantee (as i have never been there before and didn't know quite what to expect!) and we ended up having a fantastic time...otherwise i think i might have heard about it for awhile!!

we even had a funny story! we were starting to get hungry and craved some mexican food we saw at a popular taco stand. when we got into line i saw that they only accepted cash, we only had $4 between us, so we walked to the edge of town where we saw a gas station earlier in the day when scouting out parking spaces. i bought a cold bottle of water, took out $20 and headed back to the taco stand, figuring we had about 20 minutes left before the movie started that we wanted to see. when we got back into line again we both noticed at the exact same time two rather large green signs declaring an ATM machine was just at the other end of the stand for those who didn't have cash...ugh...we couldn't figure out how neither one of us noticed those signs earlier!!! oh well...we got even more exercise, the burritos were absolutely delicious and we made it to bad teacher in plenty of time!!
