Disneyland & California Adventure... was a BLAST!!

Ok.. so I know its been a few weeks since our visit there. I also know I am a BAD blogger!! But.... here we go anyway! Keep in mind I had my little point and shoot camera too! ;)

We didn't tell Jack we were going to Disneyland until the day before! Bob thought it would be better to surprise him with it. I on the other hand would have loved to use it for "good behavior" for several weeks!! LOL! Jack was so excited to hear we were going... no matter when he was told! He was also very excited to stay in a hotel room and super excited that he had his own room with 2 beds!! He felt so special! He is a roller coaster & thrill ride kid for sure! He loved all the BIG rides! Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Matterhorn, Space Mountain, Star Tours and Indiana Jones @ Disneyland and California Screamin', Mulhollan Madness and Soarin' Over California @ California Adventure! We also of course loved Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted House (the 2nd time), Buzz Lightyear, Jedi Training Mission show & the Jungle Cruise. These are pretty much all the rides we did for the 4 days we were there!! These rides over & over as much as we could fit in!! We didn't even walk into Toon Town and he called Storybook land the "kiddie" area!! He did think that the Cinderella's Castle was cool to see! Here are some pictures too!

This last photo is California Screamin' @ CA Adventure... it has a loop that takes you upside down!! Jack loved it.. he said "that was totally Wicked!" when we got off the ride. This was also a total accident that Jack looks like he has on "Mickey ears" too!! I didn't notice it at the time... I just had him move so some other people were not in the photo!! LOL!!

Hope you have a GREAT day!!

Hugs Friends!

Spring Break 2008 Part 1

Hi Friends...

I have been gently nudged by a few friends to get back to bloggin'! Its not that I don't want to share with you all its just taking the time to go through my photos! So, I am happily posting today ( Nancy ) and I hope you all enjoy the photos!!

Our trip started off with a few days with my family in So. Cal. for Easter. We spent 2 1/2 days with my niece and the boys just loved playing together!! The Easter Bunny brought goodies to the kids @ home and then us Auntie's, Cousins, Grandma's and Great-Grandma's spoiled the kids a little more!

Matthew with some fun goodies!

Jack with his awesome "baseball basket"!

More goodies for the boys!!

The Hunt is on...

My sister's backyard where we party all the time!

We all had a great time together!! We had 112 plastic filled eggs for the 4 boys!! Our family is all about holidays like this and doing it for the kids!! We BBQ'd chicken and carne asada... enjoyed our family traditional foods like chips and homemade salsa, beans, rice, Grandma's pink panther, Carissa has taken over "that damn pasta salad" - it used to also be something my Mom made but one time she said "I don't want to make that damn pasta salad anymore!" so that's how it got its name! It will be in the family recipe book that way too! Fresh Fruit & veggie's along with some yummy treats round out our meal!! I loved Easter this year so much!!

I will continue with our Spring Break trip in another post! I need to scrap for awhile!!

Have a GREAT day!
