Happiest Place on Earth

True Fact: In all my 43 years of living I have never been to Disneyland. That all changed in July when Bill and I took the kids (and myself) to the happiest place on earth where all your dreams come true. (And you stand and stand and stand and stand some more in mile long lines. Good thing I'm 43 years old and VERY patient.)

We took lots of pictures. Lots of them. I could show you the pictures of us in a traffic jam from Las Vegas to Rancho Cucamonga, or I could show you pictures of the Disneyland fireworks, or the pictures of our "nasty" little motel across the road and down a ways from Disneyland, or I could post pictures of us eating lunch in the park, or having a picnic on a high school lawn, or maybe I could show you the pictures taken at the San Diego Zoo, or a picture of Shamu from Sea World, but, to tell you the truth, the funniest pictures of all
were the pictures we took
of the pictures the park took
of our final seconds on some of the most fun rides I have ever been on.
Yeah, those are definitely some of my favorites so here you go:

Space Mountain - stood in line for 2 hours for this baby.
Good thing we were patient and that the girls had long hair so Alyssa could practice her mad hair skills on their long locks. Lots of cool "do's" were done in that line.

California Screamin' - 0 to 55 mph in less than 10 seconds! We were screamin'!

More California Screamin' - or in Payton's case: California goofin'

Now it's California sleepin'...teasin'...and mouth openin'...

Tower of Terror - Absolute Favorite!
(Notice Lindsay's hair!)

It was sooooo fun, we had to do it again!

The Simpson's Ride - Can you say "Doh!"
