For his spring break, K’s brother Michael came out to San Diego for a week! We were thrilled to have him, as always, and extra excited that he would be here in time to join us for our second (his first) MouseAdventure! M & K had been planning to play as a two-person team, but three turned out to be a charm. M picked our team name, Ball So Hard University, in honor of Raven Terrell Suggs, and we all got matching Ravens purple shirts.
Michael arrived late Saturday night and we tried to get to bed at a reasonable hour - but did I mention MouseAdventure took place on Spring Forward Sunday? And that we had to get up at 5am (which really felt like 4am)? Yeah. It was a good thing we had the adrenaline of competition to get us going that morning.
We had a blast. The format of the game had us focusing on different areas of the park at different times, working on sets of small puzzles in order to gain access to more difficult challenges. We played off of each others’ strengths, got lucky a few times, and ran around like crazy people for approximately seven hours. After? Well, then it was time to ride rides like normal people. Michael loved California Screamin’, and K was guilted into trying Tower of Terror for the first time. Michael finally got to ride Space Mountain and the new Star Tours, and loved them both. We played in the park until it closed - an amazing feat, all things considered. Not a bad way to kick off Michael’s stay in Southern California!
