4: This is always a fun ride on a hot day! Go Evan!
5: Aunt Carmen is trying to hide behind Evan; she hates taking pictures.

28: For Evan's 12th birthday, we celebrated at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel with our friends, the Richards. Evan was happy that Ben was able to come, and I was happy to see Michelle and Johanne. We had a blast, and the weather was beautiful! We had a great fun-filled day.

35: My new "favorite" ride
38: The birthday boy's celebration weekend has come to an end. I have to say it was great fun! I can't believe the day is here that my baby is 12 years old. I'm sad, yet he can't wait to be a teenager. Happy Birthday Pops!
