12 Months of Dating – June 2014


Here it is!  The June ticket in my 12 Months of Dating series – A scavenger hunt through Disneyland and California Adventure!

12 months of dating - June 2014I was really excited for Rafe to open up this date card because this was the date that started the entire series.

For this date, I downloaded this free app…

GPS The Game Disney AppThere were 52 images of items scattered throughout the park and it was up to us to play the “hot / cold” game using the GPS system on our iPhones to correctly identify the items.  We took pictures at each spot (as you can see by our selfies) and the neat thing about the app is that it would give a little bit of history on the item when you got it right.

Here are just some of the things we found…

Lost Parents
While we were waiting for the Disneyland Train we spotted the “Parents Lost” sign but instead of taking a picture of the sign we took our picture behind bars.  LOL


The Plane over at DCA.

McDonalds Spot

We found the spot in the Disneyland park that once served McDonalds!

Big Thunder

We found the runaway mine cart area!

Goofy's Eyes

We found Goofy’s eyes!  …And got photo-bombed by Becca.  lol

Sheriff Badges

We found Sheriff Badges, just for fun!


And even tried on hats!

I can’t believe we are already 1/2 way through our date cards – Yowza!  We are having so much fun with it.  In fact…be watching my website this month for my 12 Months of Dating Workshop Details – Coming SOON!
