The Happiest Place on Earth

Southern California is pretty much the happiest place on earth. How can you not be happy when it is perfectly gorgeous all the time? I was so happy to be there and not here in the dreadful snow. The sad thing is that everytime we go, I get really antsy to move. I start begging Kenyon to look for a different job.
We scored a pretty good deal on KSL classifieds and made for a pretty affordable trip to Disneyland. It was an early Christmas present. Hopefully the kids will remember how much fun they had when Christmas comes and there are no presents under the tree.

I think the highlight for Teague was getting to participate in Jedi Training.

Quinn loved just about everything. Except that she couldn't get down and crawl around. Elise's favorite was Screamin'. And Gavin's favorite - you'll love this - the Merry-Go-Round. Yep. He is a funny kid. He also loved walking up to strangers and trading pins. (Little hint - by the pins ahead of time off ebay. saves you tons of money.)
We tried a few new things. The Pirates Lair on Tom Sawyer's Island. We had NEVER been over there. It was fun. My kids LOVED it and begged to go back. Another thing we enjoyed was the Enchanted Tiki Lounge and the Pineapple Whip Float. Yum!

Another highlight - staying with my sister, Jen, and her family. And taking two of their kids with us to Disneyland one day while Jen kept Quinn. It is always fun to be with family.

D-land really IS the happiest place on earth. What a great Christmas present for your kids, who look like they were in heaven from the pix.

p.s. Keep working on Kenyon and move west!!

Looks like a great trip.

I'm feeling old--no idea what pins are. But I'm sure I'll find out in a few years.

I am wholeheartedly a supporter of you moving to So. Cal. I will assist with the move. Then stay for the vacation ;) I'm so glad you were able to take a trip and that Kenyon is feeling better to enjoy life once again. You guys definately worked hard for this. Also, we're doing a trip instead of Chistmas this year. I hope the kids aren't going to have issues on Christmas morning as well. It'll be interesting.

So glad you had fun. Looks like you enjoyed the warm while we were all here miserable. BTW- if you move away I will physically harm you:)Stay healthy!
