Magic in the Air

We survived our red eye flight from Hawaii (barely-Asher didn't sleep a wink hence neither did us parents). Joel's parents met us in LA for 3 fun-filled days at Disneyland. It truly was magical. I will never forget the looks on the kids' faces. We tried to capture some of those moments in pictures.

Anna and Asher in the "A" outside California Adventure Park.

Jesse's favorite ride was the flying rockets (and the carasoul). He would put his hands in the air and say "I flying". He marched onto every ride without looking back-that boy has no fear.

Joel and I celebrate our 9th anniversary there. Grandma and Grandpa kept the kids and we enjoyed a night in the park by ourselves! We felt guilty but it was oh so fun.

Anna was one pooped princess after 1 day. It is hard having all your dreams come true!

Anna was in princess heaven. Her face glowed every time she saw a princess and she got all their autographs. She could have sat in the "Princess Fantasy Fair" all day and forgotten about the rest of the park. This is one of those faces I will never forget.
Asher rode EVERY ride and EVERY roller coaster. He was SO brave! Here he is driving cars with Grandpa. After each ride he would yell, "That was totally AWESOME!". His favorites were the Pirates of the Caribbean and Space Mountain. and he NEVER took those Mickey Mouse ears off.

However Splash Mountain was the one he rode 3 times. This is actually his "log" going over the hill and by this time he was even putting his hands in the air!

Jesse loved seeing all the characters but wanted nothing to do with them...until he saw Minnie Mouse. He tried climbing a fence to get to her, hugged and kissed her. I couldn't get him away from her. It was love at first sight. After that he would just randomly shout "Minnie! Minnie!"

Asher and Anna loved seeing the characters. Well Anna just wanted to see the girls: Minnie, Daisy, and Jessie from Toy Story. This is my favorite "character" picture.

and no trip is complete without the family photo in front of the castle!
We are now on our cross country journey. The kids are doing awesome. We have so enjoyed seeing the West and friends we haven't seen in 5 years. We have been to Cedar Breaks National Monument and Yellowstone Park (pics to follow in next post). We are presently in Great Falls, Montana visiting dear friends from college. Next are the bad lands and black hills of South Dakota, and Mt. Rushmore here we come!
