Kind of at the last minute, I strong-armed Craig into a Disneyland trip over the Fall break. We used miles to fly to So. Cal., and we used hotel points for 4 free nights (now there's a perk to a business travelling spouse). We met my parents and my brother and his little family there to enjoy the parks together. In spite of some sick kids every single day, we really enjoyed ourselves. The parks were all decorated for Halloween, so that was really fun to see.

We saw Mickey Mouse on the first day. There was no wait at his house, can you believe it?!!

Carly's favorite was the teacups. She always would try to get in a pink one. :)

We all loved one of the newer rides at California Adventure called Toy Story Mania. This has started a Toy Story and Toy Story 2 movie watching craze at our house. And, Adam LOVES Buzz Lightyear.
Adam and Carly rode the merry-go-round next to California Screamin' over and over while all the bigger people rode the coaster. Megan did it at least 5 times! Thank you, baby switch passes!
On our last day, after my parents and brother had left, we went back to the parks for another 1/2 day. Everyone got to pick the two favorite things to do one more time. And, we stood in the hour long Princess Fantasy Faire line to get these shots and talk to the princesses. It was the longest line we had, actually.
I was praying for Ariel to be there (the princesses rotate in and out), and she was! Carly was so cute--she said to Ariel, "I see you in a movie!"
