Surprise trip to DisneyLand

We decided to take the kids to Disneyland just before Christmas Break. We didn't tell them we were doing it. We did tell them we were going to Nana and Papa's in Phoenix. So when we borded the plane that's where they thought we were going. Little did they know there was a pit stop...

Jake did ask why we were bording the plane that said Los Angelos instead of the Phoenix plane. Brian told him that they sold out the plane to Phoenix, so we would have to go to Los Angeles and then drive

On the plane we were split up. The boys were sitting with a young man. He was nice and tried to make conversation with the boys. So he asked them if they were going to DisneyLand? Jake said "No. We are going to Phoenix, but that plane was full" Brian overheard, and said the look on the guys face was priceless. Needless to say, he didn't try to make much more conversation after that :)

Reg & Julie met us there. They actually had a day under their belt by the time we got there. They also surprised their kids with a trip. That was the Christmas present. So we had 7 kids in all - which made it a lot of fun!!

They decorate sooo much for Christmas. I can't imagine how many man hours it takes! Its beautiful, and really incredible. Here is a pic of one of the streets...

This was our first ride, the Buzz Lightyear ride...
Here's my beautiful Drew...

I think Toon Town is so neat...

The very first character we ran into. Getting the kids to pose with Jesse was like pulling teeth, but they caught on after a few.

We found Mickey!

These are clearly just a few hilites. Our days were jam packed with activity.... Good fun - not very restful - but good fun just the same
