Disneyland was so much fun. The kids were all so excited. The whole family went on Pirates of the Carribean for our first ride. It was Camden and Payton's first ride as babies, so Maylee Grace had to follow in their footsteps. She didn't seem to mind it. We stayed together for part of the day and then Matt and Camden split up to ride some BIG rides.
Waiting for the Pixar Parade where we saw Monsters, Inc., Nemo, Incredibles, and of course, CARS!!!

Lightning McQueen

Payton as he saw Lightning McQueen round the corner!

We had to get a picture of the princess in front of the castle.
Payton waiting for the Playhouse Disney show where we saw Handy Manny, Little Einsteins, Pooh and Tigger and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. It was so fun. He has no concept of what's real and what's not. He was so excited!

Newport Beach

The day at the beach started a little cloudy and chilly, but the sun broke through and it turned out to be perfect. It was so fun. Camden was down by the water the majority of our time there. Payton played in the sand with this bucket and seashells. Maylee Grace loved just being there. She took a nap with Daddy in the sweet.

Six Flags Magic Mountain

On the last day, we went to Six Flags Magic Mountain. It turned out to be a nice day. There weren't tons of people...well, at least in the kiddie areas and it was cloudy, but not cold. To our surprise, Six Flags had a Thomas the Train Town! We spent a lot of time in that section of the park. Right inside the park, we met up with Batman. The boys were so excited. He told them to "look tough" in the picture.

We were in line for a little roller coaster that we rode 3 times in a row!

Payton driving his very own Monster Truck!


Percy the Train (a friend of Thomas) The boys were the only ones here at this point, so they got to go around and around several times. They were excited!
Juli, my wonderful friend, who helped me on the whole trip with the kids. She helped kids in and out of stollers, carried bags, climbed mountains while pushing a stroller, consoled whiney kids (and their mom :) ), searched for lost binkies....need I go on?? I couldn't have survived without her help. Maylee Grace is sporting her NMSU shirt from Juli.
