Back from Disneyland

We just returned from a fun filled trip to Disneyland (St. George). We left Saturday morning and spent a few days with Kevins parents in St. George. It was nice to be there and Kevin was happy to be with his mommy on Mothers Day. Most importantly Kevin was happy to be there playing Rock Band. It was also very cute to see our little 6 year old holding his own as the Rock Band drummer. The kids had fun swimming and spending time with grandpa and grandma.

We left early Monday morning and drove the 6 hours to Disneyland, we got there and parked at the hotel and headed right to the park. We decided to purchase annual passes (you only have to go 2 times in the year and it more then pays for it) because we love Disney that much. That day was a little cool, but it was nice. For those of you who like to go to Disney when it is not crowded the second (and first from what we hear) week of May is a good time to go. We spent 4 days in the parks and for the most part the lines were super short. It seems whenever you go to Disney and no matter how "uncrowded" the park is, there will always be long lines at Dumbo, Peter Pan, Autopia and Finding Nemo. Luckily, we have a pretty good system when we go that the only real substantial lines we waited in were Nemo (45 minutes) and Autopia (30 minutes). The weather got a little warm (almost 90 the last 2 days there), which just made us more tired then usual, so we didn't stay at the park till close like we normally do. But we had plenty of time to ride all the rides we wanted to (a lot). The last day there I ran into some old friends of mine. Jeromy and Carrie Dyer. I knew Jeromy from my Ricks College days and Carrie (Wannacott) from my stake growing up. It was fun to see them and spend a little time with them. We had planned on spending a few days at the park with our friends Chris and Melia, but because of work they were unable. We did get to meet up with them for dinner (thanks for that by the way) and that was fun to see them as always. We headed back to St. George Friday morn and managed to avoid all the LA traffic. We finally made it back to Utah Sunday and now life is crazy trying to get caught up on all the things we left behind. But it was fun while it lasted.

I swear we just saw Noah a few weeks ago and he wasn't that tall!! Did he grow like 10" while you were gone?
