The Trip...Part 1

Did I mention that we DROVE to Disneyland??? Oh yes we did! It was our first MAJOR road trip and I'm gonna say it was pretty successful. Not perfect, but not pure torture. We stocked up on stuff to keep them entertained...might I suggest the Crayola Glow Station for nighttime driving?? We left on a Tuesday afternoon and made our first stop about 10 hours later in Albuquerque. We woke up the next morning, hit the local Target and then headed to Tucson. Nathan's sister and her husband live there so it was fun to stop and stay with them. We had never seen their house or met their SWEET dog Ruby and the kids were super excited to see them. Their backyard is beautiful and they even got out the kiddie pool. Look at what a great big brother Graham is...he played in that tiny pool to make Charlie sweet.
Charlie decided early on that he was not into vacation pics. He looked a lot like this in the majority of the pictures we took.We made him take a family photo anyway...

which led to this little tantrum...
After leaving Tucson we headed to Carlsbad, CA. Thanks to The Baker's lovely company we got to stay at a beautiful resort. BEAUTIFUL.

This is me trying to get all artistic on the cool steps near our room.

This is a normal picture.
This is The Baker. Cute.
The next day we woke up bright and early and headed to Anaheim. We did a little reenactment of the Griswold's by being one of the first cars in the Disney parking lot. Seriously.
How happy is this girl? Setting out to find Tinkerbelle...the REAL one!
More pics to come...
