FC: September 2011
1: Dedicated to Sarah, thanks for letting us drag you around on all our family trips. | Published in 2011
2: Disneyland, here we come...!
3: Aunt Sarah and Uncle Dan arrived in Vegas Friday morning around 4am. We then left for California a few hours later for a whole day of Disney fun.! They didn't complain once about being tired. What good sports.
5: Avery and Tristan have always loved to go on carousel rides. Sarah's highlight today, other than watching her niece and nephew enjoy themselves was meeting Cindy Crawford. She couldn't stop talking about how she got to meet a supermodel!
6: Time 'Fer Some Grub
7: We ate lunch at the Big Thunder Ranch BBQ in Frontierland. They served fantastic family style BBQ meals and even had some singin' and dancin' for the kiddos! | Yeehaw!
10: Aunt Sarah was just thrilled that both Tristan and Avery got chosen. Avery sure got into the role. Tristan had it down. He kept wanting to help Avery.
11: May the force be with you.!
13: We stayed at the Howard Johnson Hotel. It had this great water park called Paradise Pier. Tristan and Avery had so much fun! After a long day in the park it was nice to cool off and relax. They both tried to avoid the big bucket of water that dropped every 15 min or so. They thought it was so funny!
15: The Dumbo ride is one of Avery's favorite rides. The kids would ride it for hours if they could. The first time we went to Disneyland Tristan was nervous and didn't want to go at first until he saw Mommy and Avery go. That's all it took to get him to take the plunge!
16: Today we spent the day in the California Adventure Park. Avery and Tristan are such goof balls! They were excited to go to this park since we normally spend most of our time on the Disneyland side.
18: The kids loved seeing the characters, especially Avery. I had to keep telling her we had to take our turn. She would have been happy spending the whole day with all of them!
20: We took a stroll over to Bug's Land, where we shrunk to the size of bugs to ride on the Chew Chew Train. Tristan and Avery kept wanting to ride the train over and over. They loved listening to the Caterpillar talk. He was quite entertaining!
21: After a few trips on the Caterpillar ride Tristan and Avery really enjoyed going around in a snack box that overlooked all of Bug's land. They had a blast. It was one of their favorite places to go!
23: We all really enjoyed the Toy Story ride. It is one of Tristan's favorite rides.
24: There is nothing like going to Disneyland with a child. Taking the time to see it in their eyes and play with them is magical in itself!
27: Avery 3yrs
28: Tristan & Sarah
29: Aunt Sarah bought Tristan and Avery these great Disneyland balloons. Aunt Sarah just adored spending time with the kids, and we loved having her come visit us anytime. She just loved to play, and hang out with them. We miss her terribly and hold our memories dear.
