Today I'm sharing a few holiday snaps of our recent trip to Disneyland, Alberta and Palm Springs, along with all the details, where we stayed, favourite dining place etc. I love peaking at people's holiday photos, so I hope you'll enjoy ours. This post is very image heavy so I have added a break after the Disneyland photos so that the blog will continue to load ok.

Disneyland, California
Stay: Hotel Anabella
This is a neighbouring hotel and it is about a 10min walk to Disneyland. Our travel agent booked us a room with an additional 'bedroom' for Lulu. Perfect for getting an overexcited 3year old to bed at night. The rooms are a little dated but the bed was so comfy and their restaurant had great breakfast.

Eat: We ate most breakfasts at the hotel because the food was wonderful and I was too hungry to walk anywhere to find breakfast. The best dinner we had was at Wine Country Trattoria in Disney's California Adventure Park. Great pasta, but not as good as Casa Nostra says Lulu!

Photos: Lulu loved the Alice in Wonderland ride because she could ride by herself at the front with Nick and I in the back. Another favourite was the jellyfish at California Adventure Land. She was obsessed with balloons.

Alberta, Canada
Stay: We stayed in a house rented by Nick's mum over Christmas & then we travelled to Fernie where we stayed at Cornerstone Lodge. The lodge is ski in/ski out so there is no driving anywhere. When I booked in July their website said they had no vacancy but I emailed them anyway and it turns out they just didn't have the availability up on their website yet. So always double check with the hotel.

Eat: Fernie has a lot of great restaurants and we did drive into town most nights for dinner. Our favourite was Loaf Bakery - not only did they have homemade bread, they also had wood fired pizza. Delicious.

Photos: The first lot of photos are of Banff and Lulu sledding in Calgary; Cornerstone Lodge at Fernie Ski Hill; Us skiing.

Palm Springs, California
Stay: We stayed at the Ace Hotel. The Ace is everything you read about, simply fabulous!

Eat: The Kings Highway Diner - we ate every breakfast at Kings. We also loved the pizza at Johnny Costa's and Mexican at Las Casuals Terraza

Photos: Early morning swims at the Ace Hotel - I love that we were able to experience Palm Springs in the rain as well as the sunshine! Downtown Palm Springs - the architecture is everything you can imagine; Joshua Tree National Park; Cabazon Dinosaurs
