Are we going a little stir crazy? You betcha, but oh well we'll survive. 🚲 Was supposed to start month 3 of my work out challenge, but you know what I just needed a mental health day. I'll start tomorrow or the next day if needed. Didn't even make Mason get all his school work done, he'll have to finish it tomorrow. We just needed a day to relax as much as possible in this crazy time we're in.

There are so many things I'm thankful for and one of those is the amount of nature areas Washington state has to offer. I'm so thankful we were able to get out and walk Nisqually Wildlife Perserve before the "Stay Home, stay healthy" order the Gov. placed. It was wonderful to get out one last time, this staying home is tough and I don't know how we're going to manage?!! #pnw #nature #optoutside #stayhome #momlife #sendwine

🌴On Saturday we took advantage of the sunshine and finally got out of the house! This will be a rough and trying time for our mental health, not going to lie. But we got to play at the local beach while practicing #socialdistancing it was wonderful! 🌻And we found a beautiful painted rock, thank you to who ever hid it!

What are you going to do with your child if homeschooling isn't cut out for them or your family? Take a deep breath, exhale and relax. It'll be okay! Everyone's health and wellness is much more important at this time than academics. I've got a list of activities if you'd like some structure in your lives though. Check it out on my blog.

Glad we were able to squeeze in one more trip out into the community and zoo before things start shutting down. Friday Piper and I made an impromptu visit to Pt defiance zoo! It was great minus the cold/rain; there was only a couple other people, animals were active, didnt need to touch anything. Now schools are out for 6 weeks and we plan on quarantining ourselves at home for most of that time, except to get out into nature.

On February 3 I started My Peak Challenge and happy to say I'm still going strong! I've been needing to make some lifestyle changes and get more active. I've been working to control what I eat, getting some kind of exercise  in daily which I'm really enjoying. I didn't think I'd ever say that! 💚 #MPC2020 has truly started changing my life, I've had more positive thoughts and my body feels good. @mypeakchallenge

On February 3 I started...

Sheraton Park Hotel Anaheim, CA

Sharing is caring!

When we booked our trip to Disneyland in Anaheim, CA we decided to stay at the Sheraton Park a good neighbor hotel to Disneyland resort.

When searching for a hotel we had a few things we wanted; a pool, near the resort, and a 4 star. I found a deal with Costco for 3 people, 6 nights at hotel, 4 day park passes for 3 people, a character meal, 1 magic morning for $1800. FYI for anyone going the Costco route the magic morning ONLY works at Disneyland and NOT California Adventure, we learned that the hard way.

THE LOBBY & GROUNDS

Overall when we first arrived at the hotel we were very impressed the lobby was very nice, the grounds were clean, the staff friendly and helpful. Besides being beautifully decorated I didn’t notice any complimentary snacks, cookies or water. We were first given the club level over looking the pool but I asked to have a view of the parks for the fireworks, but I do wish I would been able to view the club level to see if the rooms were nicer :(

The pool area was nice, but not heated and no lifeguard. A pool bar, lots of lounge chairs, fresh towels, a hot tub but beware of the many kids during the day jumping into it and playing unsupervised.

The elevators that week were not our favorite, at least one of them was out of order and the other ones were going VERY slow! If we weren’t walking everywhere and weren’t on the 5th floor we would of taken the stairs, it would of been faster. Parking wasn’t that hard to find so we didn’t worry about the valet parking.

THE ROOM

The beds were definitely the best part, they were so soft but towards the end of the trip the beds got to soft for my husband and he needed something firmer. We had a view of the fireworks at night and then that crane during the day time :) There was a mini fridge, a safe, coffee pot with Starbucks and 2 complimentary Dasani waters a day. You got a couple channels included in the room but only a couple. Worst part WiFi was not included, only in the lobby or you could pay like $10 for 24 hours.

THE LOCATION

We opted not to take the shuttle to Disneyland parks each day and just walk the 1 mile. That’s what I kept reading suggestions to do. Well, I’m positive we wouldn’t do that again. The walk to the parks was fine but the walk back was awful with a 7 year old who is too big for a stroller and tired from all the days walking. The walk back took at least twice as long and LOTS of whinny. The walk their took about 25 minutes, it’s right on the main street Harbor Blvd. and so is one of the entrances to the parks. I will mention with all the construction going on next door I was surprised there wasn’t more noise, it was tolerable and you could hardly hear it if you had the screen door shut.

RESTAURANTS

There are 3 restaurants/cafes located at the hotel. Morton’s Steakhouse which we didn’t get to visit, too fancy for Mason ;) We had the little cafe/coffee shop more than once and it was good with fairly reasonable prices. Molly’s Kitchen we had one morning, the boys food was just blah but mine(omelet spinach wrap thing) was very good, but our breakfast cost us $50 for 3 of us, way expensive for a “ihop, denny’s, sharis” type breakfast.

 

All in all the hotel was nice but nothing fancy, location was good but be prepared for a walk, get a room with a view of the fireworks it was nice to be able to lay in bed(or sit on the balcony) and watch the fireworks after a long day at the parks, I absolutely did not like that the wifi was not included, I wouldn’t consider this hotel to be any higher than a 3 star though.
