Happiest Place on Earth.....

 
We escaped from rainy Oregon this week and headed to....well...rainy California! It wasn't too bad, really. It was a bit cold and dreary the first few days, but the week ended up sunny and warm. We weren't complaining -- we were able to leave work and school behind and have some fun at Disneyland. It was a lot of fun to be together as a family. An added bonus was having John and Sheila join us with their kids. It really made the week special to be with good friends! We got home Saturday and I have to say it is nice to be back in our own beds and hitting the familiar routine. Some highlights of our trip....
 

Our whole crew on Tower of Terror.  The kids rode this thing 9 times!  Sophia went the very last time...quite reluctantly...only after Martin convinced her that it was okay.  Martin is an expert.  He's 5.    He told Sophie he would protect her.  As you can see he is sitting front and center looking as cool as ice while everyone else is in terror!

 
Some pretty fun kids!


 
A little bit of sugar, some face paint, and a bit of sleep deprivation, makes for some pretty wound up kiddos!
 


Sophia tormenting Adam with her driving.  He's trying to "help."
 


Sophie thought being escorted alone around the park by Dad was great.  Only he had the patience to wait in line to meet Minnie!  She thought that was grand!
 



Can't pass up a hug from Pluto....


Waiting...and waiting...and waiting.....for the new Cars ride....


The kids' favorite part of the trip....swimming!

 
The last night in the park did us in!  Too much fun....all done!
 
 
Well, that's about it.  Nothing too deep or profound!  I just have to say it's great being home with friends and family.
 
With love and gratitude....
