On our way there I wanted to see the St. George Temple so Dave decided that could count as their "religion" for the day. I wonder if we can have that kind more often. We went to JB's for breakfast and Logan said "what if people see us and get the wrong idea?" He says all these things in a smart A sarcastic way and sometimes doesn't even realize he is being funny.
This is my token "Linda" shot where there has to be a person in the picture with the plants. She looks cute and I am a fan of this outfit but look how it coordinates so well with these ornamentals. I like these cabbagy plants because even if there are bugs on them I know they aren't to eat so I keep my appetite in tact.
I put one of these on my upper lip to be Adolf so Sam decided to make a sticky game of it, and to think we are only a few hours in.
Dave found this ratty lookin' kid in the parking lot and we were afraid to touch him. He must have come out of a dumpster or at least something resembling one.
Day one at Disneyland................waiting in line..................to wait in another line...........to wait in a mob of chaos and Asians filling every inch you leave around yourself. No judging, just factual.
I so suck at taking good pictures. Here they are trying to get a glimpse of something.
There's something about Maps. It's that damned DORA......brainwashing I say. I cannot tell you how many maps we ended up with and really, can Ash and Sam even read????
Day 2, Neve finds the dispenser of fun. Who needs PEZ? I let her and Dave thought I was irresponsible until he saw how much fun she was having. Silly housekeeper just kept refilling the thing. I guess I should plant a tree.
This picture has to by far be the weirdest picture of these two and therefore post worthy.
On Day three we did Breakfast at Goofy's kitchen. It was fun but my pictures of it are crap except one video that I am too "compassionate" to share. Logan ripped pieces of the paper tablecloth off to get autographs that he is now using as a bookmark in James and the Giant Peach
My favorite ride at Disneyland. I really like Song of the South and own a pirated version of it from Europe or some great place that my BFF has been to (I live vicariously through Jamie because she travels and she pretends that she is living that way through me because I clean butts and noses all day......but I think she is lying.....) If you don't know this movie, you should. I think it is not made anymore because it has slaves in it or something silly but this ride is made from that movie. Oh, the vast knowledge I provide here is amazing
Okay I think I win for the weirdest looking Alice too. What do you say? My ariel wins from two years ago......yiiiiiiikes!!!!
Neve by the N. I didn't dare let her out for fear that she might have thought it was an option.
High School Musical 3 gayness!!! Look at little Lukes hand sticking out waiting for his high five. Ella's hand up like that reminds me of old footage of girls watching Elvis and crying. I dont think she cried but she was sick that day and began the germs o pukage. (She threw up all night Tuesday night, I think it was Tuesday). I left the park Wednesday with a migraine so no pictures of that day but its not like they would have been anything to shout about anyway by the looks of things.
Haunted Mansion.............Ash went with Logan................Brave little squirt!!! Too bad she's not a touch taller.
A pile of fake smiles and we got on this ride in 2 minutes. Anyone familiar with this ride? It can take a very long time to get a turn. I highly recommend Jan/Feb for this trip.
Yes, her mouth is that big. She spent a lot of time screeching in the car. She got volume from her daddy unfortunately it is in a really high pitch. Now I'm going to call my sister Sarah when she is screaming so she knows how we feel when we talk to her on the phone.
My very favorite photo of the whole trip. I have one just like this of Sam at our last trip to Disneyland standing by a window. We are not crazy hippies and fully believe in clothing but seriously, what is cuter than a baby bum? I do like a lot of hippie styles and music though but lets keep the bras ladies. We could burn high heels instead or anything with any sort of a heel for that matter.
Reminds me of The Shining, which is creepy but true. It also reminds me of the Haunted Mansion and Hollywood Tower of Terror. I find hotel hallways to be more frightening than most other things that people might find scary. Those kids at the end are cute though and aren't ghosts just to clear that up.
Neve's first mickey ears. I like Madras stuff and they will match her room perfectly where they will happily reside on her wall.
For those that had never heard of Neve I will say that the lady standing next to the one running the machine that puts this on the hat was like 90 years old and said, as our lady struggled to understand what I was saying, "you know like Neve Campbell". Thank you 90 year old lady!!!
Our last day was a downpour but the kids and Dads still braved the weather for quite a while in their sub par ponchos. Lisa and I went shopping that evening in the rain and enjoyed the childless splendor. Neither of us are much on shopping but I loved every minute of it. Fireworks were canceled which I hated but oh well I guess no one wants Tink to get struck by lightning.
Saturday brought more bad weather and some terrible driving conditions. We saw an SuV on fire, lots of little wrecks, a semi in a ravine after crossing our side of the highway. We decided to forgo our stay in St George since Logan began the barfing on the way home and Sam had a fever and and and and the storm was following us. Your welcome HoJo for your free $65.
Ahhhhh and we arrived safely and mostly soundly and unpacked the stench and I began my work while coming down with the same crap the kids had(One of those words could be highlighted but I shall leave that to the imagining).
It was fun and memorable and fun..............Did I say fun? The kids were great. We only lost 2 kids but good people who took pity on us were returning our children before we even knew they were gone. There still are good people in the world. There were some dirtbags there too but I dont want to take away from the lovelyness of this post by giving them a moment.
Last side note: There were a few times when only one husband was near us and we got "the" look, you know the one. Are they Polygamist? Where are their braids? and their jeans under their dresses? Are they from Herriman?
So much to say, so much to remember but if I want anyone ever to make my blog into a book (wink wink again) i must stop for fear they wont be able to afford the 7000 pages it might take.
Can it possibly be the happiest place on earth? I dont know, go ask your Chad.
