Each day the older boys wore matching color bright shirts. We talked with them quite a bit about what to do if they get lost. I am happy to report that we only lost Spencer twice for a minute. :) I was also aprised of Disney trading pins and lanyards. As a special treat we bought a large bunch from Ebay and shared them around. I was the one who got into the trading the most. Ben would take the big boys on a ride and Henry and I would go around the stores and workers and trade pins. I loved it!
Waiting in line for our first entrance into the Disneyland park. My parents came with us too! They live in St. George so we picked them up on the way to Anaheim. My Dad is from the Los Angeles area and was born the same year as Disneyland, so I thought it fitting to have them along. :) Plus, it would be super fun to watch the kids have fun.
This was a highlight for me: meeting Mary Poppins and Burt. My friend Misty made the boys some darling autograph books, and again, I was the one who really got into autographs. The boys were mostly about the rides, and I love the art and splendor of the magic of the park.
The Winnie the Pooh ride is right across from Splash Mountain and became a quick favorite. Ben would take the boys on Splash Mountain while I treated Henry to Winnie the Pooh. Then we would swap. Love it!
Richard and Garrett loved the Matterhorn Bobsleds. It wasn't my favorite because it is really jerky and that Yeti is scary!
Spencer was a trooper-he couldn't go on California Screamin' which was absolutely the funnest ride of the whole week. He settled for getting a posed picture.
In Mickey's Fun Wheel-which is a huge ferris wheel. Some of the cars are stationary, but some, like ours, are not.
The boys practicing their Jedi moves.
