We got back from our wonderful vacation on Sunday. Before my Mom died she told my Dad she wanted to give each of her kids some of the life insurance money. We decided to spend ours making family memories. I felt like it was something she would have loved us to do and the memories I made with my parents and siblings on family vacations are some of my most treasured. So I really felt like this trip was a "gift" from my Mom. We stayed the first night in St. George and did 4 days at Disneyland with a beach day in the middle. We also went to Medieval Times on our beach day. Its a dinner show with horses, knights, jousting, fighting, etc. and the kids loved it! It was overcast, cool and rainy most of the time, but that didn't stop us from having a great time! We drove the whole way home on Saturday- holy cow! I didn't think we could do the drive all in one day, but we did and we all survived! We had a great time and loved being together. Here are picture highlights of our trip, even though many moments were not captured in pictures- like the ferris wheel at California Adventure where Daniel was in tears, convinced we were going to die, Emma was also crying and Landon was nervous (scared) laughing. All I could do was laugh so hard- it was seriously hilarious! And now we are back to real life! Not nearly as much fun!
Disneyland is so cute at Halloween time!
The boys on Pirates

Kate loves princesses and since Tiana's line was short we decided to take the photo opportunity!
The happiest place on earth!
Kate was holding on to Richard very tight, and I love Richards face- what a great Daddy!
Teacups- the kids loved to spin. The parents, not so much.
I love Richards face in this!
No spinning for me! Blugh!
Our cold, but still fun, day at the beach. It was only like 62 degrees!
Kate thought it was great!

Medieval Times- the kids loved it!

Why buy a hat when you can just try one on and take a picture!
Kate loved all the characters!
I love Disneyland ice cream! My favorite is the chocolate covered bananas, and the Tiki Room Dole pineapple soft serve! Num!
California adventure- I love that Landon is on the phone trying to find Richard.
Toy Story was a great new ride and we loved it!
Richard likes to call this picture Mickey Mouth
