Zillions of pics of the happiest place on earth

I'm FINALLY putting up our pictures of our trip to Disneyland, yes I'm a little behind. Even Adam was asking me when I was going to update our blog. So here it is. There are TONS of pics, but sometimes you just can't pick which ones to put up, so enjoy!

First pit stop between Tucson and Phx. Ethan had to "pee on the road" I swear he will pee anywhere BUT the toilet!!
Malia passed out, notice the cookie still in her hand.
And little Ava. She did so good. The only time she woke up, was when she was hungry. She hardly ever cried the entire trip, she is such a good baby!We drove about 1/2 way and stayed the night in Blythe, CA. If anyone knows Malia, knows that she sleeps really really well, at home. When she is anywhere but her crib she wakes up screaming uncontrollably, that night was no different. About 2 in the morning she woke up screaming and continued for about 30 min. So her and I hung out in the bathroom trying not to wake up anyone else. Great, I'm thinking it is going to continue all night, but she finally went to sleep and slept the rest of the night, whew, one night down. We made it to our hotel and met up with Adam's sister Ashley and her hubby Cameron and their 3 kiddos, Dallin, Cade, and Carter. We got a great hotel right across from the entrance to Disneyland so we could walk back and forth if we needed. The hotel was the Tropicana Inn and Suites (thanks Sarah) and it was really nice, and we got a great deal on If your planning a trip there check it out, they have great deals. Anyways. We headed out early the next morning for Disneyland! Another great thing for Disneyland is a program called You download it on your computer and it schedules your day at Disneyland so you miss all the lines, it totally works, we'll never go back without using it. Ok now on to the pics...

First ride, first temper tantrum by none other than Malia! Poor girl, just wanted to go on the Merry-go-round. Ava trying to talk to us.

Malia and daddyMust be nice to be carried around and sleep most the day =)
I realized that I have hardly any pics of Ethan, he was just having too much fun to sit still for any pictures, luckily we got a few.
Malia carried around these flowers about 1/2 the day.

Malia was not a fanThe cute High boys Dallin, Cade, and Carter
The Highs, we had so much fun with them, totally wish we lived closer!
Still has the flowers
Malia was done by about 8 or so and just hung out in the stroller with a bunch of blankets on her.
This was Ethan's (and daddy's) favorite. He talked about this ride after the first time we went and totally remembered it this time.

What mom? Candy makes everything better

Ethan loved this ride, he talked about it all day, and is still talking about it.

Goofin' around in the hotel room

We went to Huntington Beach after Disneyland was done, it was FREEZING!

They both loved running in and out of the water, there was no way I was getting even my toe wet, way too cold!

Do I have sand on my face?

Getting bored on the way home...

ok, that only took me 2 days, hopefully it won't be another month before I do this again, cause I'm sure you hold your breath waiting for me to update my blog =)

So jealous that you guys were able to go! Although Camille wouldn't be that much fun there! It looks like you guys had a blast! I still can't believe how well Ava did! She must be the perfect baby!
