The Vacation!

Jayce has been begging to go to Disneyland- so we finally made the trip!
Baylie REFUSES to miss school (shes weird) so we had to plan according to school breaks. We left Jan. 15 and returned Jan. 19- Fast And Fun!
Day One- we leave AFTER school- drive to St. George and have dinner with Ross's parents- thanks for the soup and salad! SO YUMMY! Then its off to Vegas! (A quick stop in Mesquite so I can throw-up the soup and salad- will I ever grow out of the car sickness?)
We stayed at Excalibur for the night.
Day Two- we saw the sights near the hotel- no time to see them all. M&M world- Coke World and the statue of liberty! Then on to Buena Park CA. We arrived early enough to hit Disneyland for a few hours. Jayce only wants to see TOON TOWN. The girls go to ride some rides, but its only an hour before they are arguing with each other and want to leave! We make them play in Toon Town with us!
Day Three- California Adventure part day. Straight to the Tower of Terror. I had no idea what I was getting into. I DO NOT like to fall. Hate it! Hated the ride! My family is MEAN and I spend the rest of the day safely on the ground at Brother Bear play land and Toon Town, Thanks Jayce for saving me!!
Day Four- We hit Disneyland for a few final hours but we are all tired and our feet hurt- and although I begged for a stroller, Captain Fowlks refused so carrying the 40 Lb Jayce around -(Captain did his fair share of carrying too!)- we are POOPED!
We went to the Jedi Training! SOOO COOL! and Jayce, Baylie, and Kelcey all built their own light sabers. We spent some time that night in the hot tub and watching movies!
Day Five- We really want the kids to see the ocean so we drive down to Huntington Beach to play! They loved it! Baylie begged to go surfing- so we said- "if you want to miss school tomorrow we can stay an extra day and surf" No go! We are heading home!
Its a dang long drive! But we had three drivers and we all take turns sleeping- driving- sleeping.
Its good to be home- but its so quiet! Kerryne and the kids moved to Califonia while we were away. We miss them- badly- but we are so happy that they are staying in the country. We will make that dang long drive to Oceanside- SOON!

Looks like you had fun! You can't go wrong with Disneyland. Emma would have to agree with you on the Tower of Terror ride. The look on her face when we went, PURE TERROR! I felt so bad!

Sounds like fun we are sort of planning a trip there when Daniel gets home in the fall of the year when everyone has gone back to school and we don't have to worry about the crowds.

It looks like a long, busy, FUN weekend!!! I wish we had gone with you. Maybe next time, we love Disneyland! Kenzie and Lexi usually take a day or two before they start fighting....

Yay! What a fun trip! I can't wait to go in the fall! Logan has talked about going back since we went when he was TWO! How do they remember this stuff?
