What I know you've all been waiting for...

I am very disappointed in our picture taking on our 2010 family vacation, but alas here is the play by play. We left early Saturday, dropped off Wes with my parents at my brothers house in Corona, then headed to our hotel.These pictures seriously do not do this place justice!! It was the nicest hotel we have ever stayed in! I know that's not saying much, but still... The bed was so comfy and the free breakfast in the morning was not the normal "make your own waffle" type and it was in their fancy little restaurant. We loved every minute of it! We went to the beachIt was very cold and windy. We also advise to stay away from Venice Beach, unless you are one that likes medicinal marijuana and then it is the place for you. We still had fun and I even got a nap in! Love those vacation naps! Then on the way back to my brothers we decided to go through Hollywood. We happened upon this beautiful site without even knowing where we were going!It's amazing how you can completely feel away from the city just by looking at the amazing Moroni. We hit a littleAnd viewed the million dollar homesThis one was approx. 9 1/2 mil!

Well, that pretty much wraps up our babymoon!! So fun!!

Now for the best part...DISNEYLAND!!
Wesley loved the Go-Go Gadget roller coaster and the Matterhorn, but he still says his favorites were
The Buzz Lightyear and Toy Story Rides.
The late afternoon nap
And here's a little video. You pretty much have to just watch the first few seconds! I couldn't believe his reaction to the characters.

I thought for sure he'd be scared since he hated the mouse so much at Chuck E Cheese. He loved Pluto, swooned over Woody and waved with pure joy and excitement at Sulley!
It was truly magical to be able to see your children's love of Disney. I know that sounds so commercial, but truly, it's all their dreams come true and you can just see it in their eyes!!

As you can see we did not get any family pictures, even though we had several capable people around us to do so. We are such poor excuses for not taking better pictures! I blame it on the fact that I didn't bring my baby (the Nikon) for fear of losing a source of our income, but it's not a good enough excuse, so I apologize. I have promised myself to do better next time--for there will most definitely be a next time!
