The Happiest Place On Earth

Yes, it truly is the happiest place on earth. We went to Disneyland this past week with Kent's brother Craig and his wife, Nicole, and his parents, Steve and Linda. It was great. I wish we could go there more often.

While we were on space mountain the ride stopped. Very horrifying to sit there in the dark wondering if the car behind you is going to plow straight into you, considering you can't see or hear anything. We sat there for a while and the lights finally came on- it didn't look nearly as cool as you would expect. And with all the technology, all it took to get us started was a good ol' fashioned push.
Erik loved the water park area in California Adventures. Priceless.

After the water park area, they were soaked. I had an extra pair of clothes for Erik, but all I had for Taylor was pajamas. Here he is in his sweet outfit, complete with snow boots to give him that extra little lift.

The best picture we got of everyone (minus Kent).

Don't you think Taylor looks slightly crazed?

Yes, those are matching shirts. Cheesy, but I couldn't resist.

My all-time favorite picture from the trip.

Here's a slideshow of some more pics.

After Disneyland we went to stay with Kent's aunt and uncle, the Bushnells. Taylor LOVED playing with his cousin Brock. We took all three of the boys to the beach and they had a lot of fun- regardless of the fact that it was windy and a little chilly.

And if that wasn't enough, we topped it off with Sea World. First of all, not as magical as Disneyland. It would have been fine if we hadn't just had a rockin' good time at Disneyland. But since it was free with being in the military, it was great, and the boys liked watching the animals. Taylor wouldn't touch the sting rays to save his life, but Erik loved them.

It was a great vacation. Look how much fun they had!

Okay so I am jealous that you got to go to Disneyland!! It looks like everyone had lots of fun!! The matching outfits are adorable!! They are a requirement in our family that all of the kids match whenever we do something like that! Oh, and congrats on baby number 3! Welcome to the crazy club!!

awesome! Gotta love those military perks. I'm adjusting to the fact that I don't get them anymore. But... not missing them so much that I think I could handle it myself. :) Chris tells me I would be fine, but I cry when people yell at me...sometimes.

HOW FUN! I cant wait to go... we are heading there at the end of May... your pictures got me even more excited.. WOO HOO! Did you get good prices on tickets? so far the only thing we have found was at ITT in the px, and they arent very good discounts.

Amanda said...

Looks so fun! You guys flew right? Are you sick or are you feeling pretty good? I can't wait to take my girls to Disneyland.

Sarah said...

Fun fun fun. I'm contemplating a June trip to Florida for the perks--to coincide (hopefully) with a radiology conference. We'll see . . .

Welcome back! Enjoy our lovely WA rain. =)

It that In-n-Out that Taylor and Erik are sleeping through? Or did Kent win and is it Taco bell? It really was a fun trip

We went last year, but I'm already itching to go back. My kids loved Disneyland and it looks like yours did too! Such cute pictures. I'm jealous that you weren't bundled up in winter coats like we were here. I want some California sun!
