Wordful Wednesday

We were able to go on vacation last month to California! It was so much fun! We took literally hundreds of pictures! And here they are. Just kidding, here's a few of the highlights, though.
First up, Disneyland and California Adventure.
Silly Joshua!

Cute Parson.

The 3 and 4 D rides were a hit! We especially loved the Toy Story ride in California Adventure.

Stick bug in California Adventure. We walked right by him 3 times before we noticed him!

I have to tell you, my favorite rides were the Toy Story and the Soarin California in California Adventure. Of course, I didn't get to do any of the grown up rides like Splash Mountain, Haunted Mansion, or any of the big roller coasters.


We then went to the USS Midway Museum. This was pretty cool. The kids got a little bored after a while, though.

We got to see the San Diego Temple. Beautiful!

We went to Sea World! And we all LOVED it!



The highlight for Josh was talking me and Parson into going on this raft ride and then blasting us with the huge water cannons. We were soaked!

Lego Darth Vader and R2D2.
Legoland was very cool. I was absolutely amazed at the things they had built out of legos! They also have a water park and some really fun rides. We loved it!
We managed to squeeze a lot into the week we were there and we had a great time!

Soaring over CA is my favorite, too. Don't you love smelling the ocean mist and the oranges?

I also love that stick guy......it's amazing with what grace he moves.

The San Diego temple is beautiful.
