Caution! Do not read this unless you have read Corners of Our Vacation Chapter One!

Dumbo the Flying Elephant! He is my Mom and my favorite character and there forth we love his ride! Of all the characters Dumbo deserves his own ride the most. I mean - have you seen the movie? He gets his mother taken away, has everyone make fun of his ears and has to jump out of a flaming building all in about an hour! Poor guy. And he's the cutest character - how can you not love him?

Cate is officially forty inches! That means she can ride almost all the rides in the parks! And she is proud of it! I said "Is Cate riding Space Mountain?" She looks at me with that of course- I- am face and says
"Uh- YEAH! I'm 40, Claire." Except she pronounces my name Cler.
She is funny, funny.

This is Mickey's Fun Wheel. Everyone in the family loves it. Except Uncle Len. Notice the finger in his mouth? He only rode it for Cate who looks at him with these huge eyes and said "Lenny - it won't be fun without you!" After he announced he would not be boarding this time.
He rode it and I bet he will again. If he doesn't someone with very persuading eyes will be very upset.

Here's the last photo. Can you spy with your little eye one Mason, a Claire, Daddy and a Benjamin? We truly had a good time. It's Disneyland - and with my family it's impossible
not to have a good time. I hope you enjoyed a few of the 990 pictures we have of our vacation.
With love,

Corners of our vacation Chapter one

Dear Readers,
We are home from our California vacation! A lot happened and I'm excited to share with you some of the funniest corners of our trip! First of all, you need to know my Mom loves taking pictures. And as you can see from the above picture, her children are following in her footsteps!
She took 990 pictures this trip. I know some of your eyeballs are popping out, but trust me, this isn't unusual! Her camera goes every where with her because as I've said before -she loves taking pictures. That is the reason I am a little late in blogging about our trip. It took me days to go through all her pictures! I'm finally here, though and will began showing you a glimpse of our van...

I love this picture because my Dad is in the back ground looking very funny. (That's why we're all laughing!)

My Dad's best friend,Uncle Todd, works at Sony and took us on a tour at the start of our trip. It was very cool to see where movies we love were filmed. In the above picture Cate is standing inside the stage where "Singing in the Rain" was filmed. It's one of my favorites! The room has to be so big because they make buildings and scenery and everything required in a movie and put them inside that room! There's a big difference between the room Cate's standing in and the living room in which they sing "Good Mornin' " in "Singing in the Rain" !

Onto the Disneyland portion of our trip! Here's us with Pluto, our family favorite. I love how Mom and Dad are the ones holding the stuffed animals and not the kids!

This is Uncle Todd's daughter, Gracie. She's as cuddly as a stuffed animal and fits right in, don't you think? She rode some of the Bug's Land rides with us. Cate sure did love having a littler one to hold and play with! ( Gracie did, too. She would just watch Cate - mesmerized. Can't you see her thinking "Wow... this one's smaller than the others..."
