Here We Go Again!

If there is one good thing about living in the far west valley of Phoenix, it is the relatively quick drive to southern California. In April, we were able to get a really great deal on annual passes to Disneyland (thank you Mindy for the sweet find!) Kelly's sister was taking her family on a trip there, so we thought we would put those passes to some good use! We met up with them for a few days and had a great time. The kids were so excited to see their cousins, but questioned where the others, including grandma and grandpa were!

Here are some of my favorite pictures from our getaway!






Connor wouldn't let Tanner out of his sight! He held his hand nearly the whole time. He also comforted him while we waited in line for The Tower of Terror. Promising him that it was not scary! Tanner didn't quite take to Connor's consoling!

These two are like peas in a pod! As long as they have their blankets and juice, they are good to go! Oh, and having a map doesn't hurt!


My kids haven't ever really been that into the characters, as far as waiting in line to see them goes. They are generally happy with "hey look, over there is Mickey." However this time, Carson really wanted to see Pluto. He was so excited!


We spent one day at the beach, which is always on Kelly's wish list!


Katelyn loved the "pool" as she called it. She was also quite fond of the sand. In fact, she spent a lot of her time rolling around in it or dumping buckets of it on her head. I will probably be scraping sand out of her hair for a few more days!




After the beach, we went to Downtown Disney. The kids all got some fun balloon swords and helmets. Well, Carson didn't want a helmet so he go a shield.
We had a fun time with Kelly's sister and her family. We did miss the rest of the family though. But I will tell them this, if ever any of them need someone to meet them in Disneyland, we will greatly oblige (as long as our good luck with Priceline continues!)

That is so fun you have annual passes. I wish we could take a quick trip down there, but seeing your pictures will just have to do. I will live through you. :) Looks like you guys had a blast!

You'll have to share your priceline secrets with us! Sounds like you had a blast.

Megan you have an adorable and great family! So glad you post all your exciting adventures and are enjoying life down south -- your kids are so cute!

That beach ('pool' as Kate calls it) looked great. You'll have to take me there. I see you got your new stroller--high tech. I'll bet you really enjoyed it. The kids (even the big ones) looked like they had a blast. I need a vacation--oh yeah, I get to go camping in a couple of weeks. Loved all the pictures.

I can't believe you're wearing jackets in June & it was 100 degrees when we were they in April. Crazy! So, did Connor go on Tower of Terror? I thought he didn't like it.

We were just discussing a trip there for next month! I'm glad to see my boys aren't the only map addicts!

Did you get the Hyatt?

Bridgette said...

Super cute pictures! They are all so cute! I tried to talk Jeff into our season passes this past weekend. I lost to Sedona. :-( maybe soon!

Z said...

I already miss the beach. Can we go back now? I'm sure everyone in Utah will understand, right?

It looks like you guys had a great time. Didn't you just go like a month ago? That's fun that you have annual passes. We have season passes to Lagoon, but that's not as fun as Disneyland. The picture of Kelly and the kids at the beach is so cute.

OH I am SO jealous. I LOVE Disneyland so much. Your little family is so darling. That little girl should be on the cover of magazines. What a beauty!
