Return from Neverland!

We just returned from our week long trip at Disneyland, and what a blast! We got to stay with our friends the Lee's and Jeppson's and were lucky enough to have friends come to Disneyland and see us! Also, my younger sister flew in from BYU to spend part of the week with us (***Addie***) so that was great to see her too. Here are some cute pictures from our trip.

On one of the first days there, Jared and I were talking in the hotel, when I realized Addie was being extremely quiet. We called her and couldn't see her anywhere in the room! I started panicking thinking that she'd some how escaped out the door (we were on the sixth floor overlooking a pool) only to notice that she'd somehow crawled into the basket of her stroller. Silly girl nearly gave me a heart attack!
While we were there, we got to see the new show "World of Color" which was amazing!! If you plan to go to Disneyland anytime soon, you should plan on seeing this show too.
Unfortunately, not everyday was filled with California sunshine. It actually poured Monday thru Wednesday which pretty much put a damper on our plans (no pun intended). But we tried to tough it out anyways.

Even though Disneyland provides you with plenty of things to do, sights to see, and shows to experience, Addie enjoyed walking around above it all. She was really entertained stepping on the drains, curbs, wandering away, and unloading our stroller. Guess we didn't need to take her to Disneyland for an "exciting vacation" after all, a walk outside of our apartment would've sufficed!

We also attended "Mickey Mouse's Halloween Party". It was fun to get Addie dressed up and to see the other costumes. But even more fun to get a bucket load (literally) of candy and have no lines to wait in for the rides. We just walked ourselves right onto the carts, took off, and were done! Able to go on round 2, 3, and 4 to our favorite rides!!

Above all, it was just fun spending time together as a family.

LOVE the picture of Addie in the bathroom sink. Too cute!

And I can't believe I didn't get a picture of all of us together! You didn't take one did you? I'm so bummed. Next time. There will be a next time... :)

That looks like so much fun! The photographer lives in Queen Creek but I would just email her and see if she would meet somewhere in the middle. I know she has done pictures in mesa. No worries about last night. I hope Jared did good in his race.

Addie is so adorable!!! I am glad you guys had fun, minus the part about Addie giving you a heart attack! I am not looking forward to that with Keira! But I guess it is only a matter of time!
