Family Vacation 2012

For our family vacation this year we went to DISNEYLAND!! The boys had no idea what to expect, but they were all pretty excited about it!

We went with our great friends The Whitney's! Our first stop was Huntington beach. It was beautiful! It was the perfect day to go. The water was freezing, but it didn't stop all of the kids from swimming!

Our second stop was Sea World! I was amazed at how majestic it is to see a HUGE killer whale. They are AMAZING!

They trained these killer whales to actually do a backflip out of the water.... AMAZING! We sat in the soak zone, luckily we didn't get wet, but the kids went down front and got pretty wet. It was so much fun!

It was a little chilly that day, but so worth it!

Colby and Ty

We got to stop at the San Diego temple while we were there. It was just as beautiful as we imagined it would be. It's breathtaking!

It doesn't get much more amazing than that!

Our next stop was DiSnEyLaNd for 2 days! We loved it! We hit everything we could. I bet we could have used one more day though!

Line after Line, at this point, everyone was exhausted!

Tyler got to drive me around... I'm glad we still have 12 more years until that happens!

Me and Ty

My most favorite people in the world!

The one and only.... Mickey Mouse!

It was so much fun to go with our friends. Each kid had a ride partner. It was perfect! They had a great time together.

Celeste and Dax

Goofy!! He's so cool.

Tyler and Deacon were such good sports while we waited for the "older kids" to get off the bigger rides.

Baylee and Tyler

TIGGER!! One of my favorites!

Whinnie the Pooh and the boys!

This picture is classic!! Derek tried and tried for both days to get Dusty to go on California Screamin (a scary roller coster). He WOULD NOT do it.... We knew he would love it if he went, so Derek coaxed him on (with a little force)!! This is just before they took off, Dusty looks scared to death!! But the up side, is that when he got off, he was STOKED! He loved it! He went about 5 more times on it! It was great!

We had the best time! Can't wait to go again!
