Disneyland 2011

For our vacation this year we went to California!  The boys were excited about Disneyland and the beach.  Shane and I were excited about the cooler temperatures.  It was wonderful all the way around. We left here at 5:30 AM on July 13 for DFW.  This would be the boys first time to fly.  They were totally pumped and I was a nervous wreck!  It was so fun to watch the expressions on their faces when we were lifting off.  Carson's smile was so big and as soon as we lifted off the ground he said,"we're in the air, we're in the air!!"

Watching the planes before lift off!!

The next day we went to Disneyland ALL DAY LONG!!  We left around 8:00 that morning and came back to crash at 11:30 that night.  This was the first time the boys would ride a roller coaster.  Of course my guys loved it !!  The faster the better. When we came off the first fast ride I heard," That was awesome", "It will take your breath away!" And they were laughing the whole time! We did have a few time of whiney but for the most part it was good.

 We went to Downtown Disney the night before.  Lots of fun shops and food!  Just outside the gates.

   This was at the Lego store in Downtown Disney.

Corbin riding with Pawpaw, Carson with Nonnie on the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad!!!

The whole gang!  We were so happy that Nonnie, Pawpaw, Aunt Robin and Uncle Mikey went with us!!

On Friday morning we got up a little later and headed for HOLLYWOOD!  We weren't sure what we were going to do when we got there but we were going.  We stopped on Hollywood BLVD and saw all the stars on sidewalk, we drove past the Kodak Theater and saw the big Hollywood sign on the hill.  Shane had the camera to take pictures of the stars and other things.  We weren't there long because little guy was so tired and not in the mood to walk.  We got back in the car and headed for Santa Barbara!!

Under the smoke shop sign it says "We are glass blowers."  Shane thought that was funny!
