Off we go! Watching the planes take off and land at SLC! I Love how excited they were to see the planes! Almost as excited as me! ;)
It was so cute to see Colter meet his idol. He was a little timid at first but then was all over Buzz!
We had to hit Disney on a 100 degree day, in September. This pond looked really welcome to play in so, I started a water fight with the kids. Found a sign nearby here a little later that said, please watch your kids. Meaning, hey idiot parent don't let your kids play in the water fountain and don't START the fight.
I thought it was cute how Donald signed the autograph books.
Ellyse found a splash pad.
And the one I thought we'd missed but was super happy to finally get a shot of..Gabriel Solis' house. Sooo Cool!!
That night the boys and I went to Halloween Horror nights. Lots of lots of spook alley's to walk through. No doubt it was Jason and Lance's favorite part of the trip. They had fog machines all over and in some parts of the park, you couldn't really see in front of your face it was that foggy. I liked that part. Made it more fun to actually get scared by some of the walking cast members.
We headed back to the Hotel at about 1:30AM. The park was open till 2 AM but we had had it and plus, the lines were too long to sit in anymore. It was a sold out night at Universal. Those L.Aliens love their Halloween Horror Nights! Crowded!!
Saturday + the beach = my favorite moment of the trip. The girls first time seeing and playing in the ocean. I loved being there with our girls to get to see them experience the ocean for the first time! It was great! We went down and got our feet wet and collected sea shells. I took a nice long walk and found a really big one. It was awesome. I heart the ocean!!
We were at Santa Monica Beach and on the peer we finally got to see Minnie and Mickey. They had to hold their ears up to take the pictures. Yeah, a little weird for me too! I think by the expression on Allie's face, she caught on that they weren't the 'real' Mickey and Minnie.
I left my camera in the hotel on Monday and so, this menagerie of photo's will have to stop for now. Jason took some photo's that I'll have to load later.
Overall, it was a great trip! A bit hot, a bit too many lines, but I loved being with my family 24/7 and getting to enjoy Disneyland, Universal, and of course, the beach all together!!
