Richard Nixon Library

We've just returned from a family vacation in California --2 days touring presidential libraries and 3 days at the happiest place on earth, DISNEYLAND!

On our first day, our immediate destination upon landing was Richard Nixon's Presidential Library.

After a full day of traveling and exploring the Nixon Library, we retired to our hotel in Anaheim, the Embassy Suites (North). This is a very fun hotel with its happy hour and roaring lion in the atrium.

This lion's paw twitched every once in a while and would get up to roar every hour.
