Catching Up On Pictures!!

Finally, I have found some time to post pictures from our Labor Day Weekend fun!! Actually it was more like five days, we extended the weekend!!


Today's blog post is sponsored by the Letter R!!

This is outside Disney's California Adventure! Rachel just had to get her picture taken with the Letter R!!!




Rachel and Joey on the very fun and competitive Buzz Lightyear ride. We got to stay on the ride for two go arounds, thanks to Evan!!



The Finding Nemo submarine ride was fun! Katie about freaked but she survived.




Finally a carousel ride that Evan could ride on!!




Mike and Katie were the two brave souls on our group to go on the big roller coaster.


The new Toy Story ride was in 3D and very fun, but the line was way to long!!



After Disneyland we drove down to San Diego to visit with John and Amy. We also spent some time with my brother Doug and his family.

Amy and John just chillin'!!



We went to San Diego's Wild Animal Park.


My favorite exhibit by far was the lions. Here is an old car the cubs took over. I have no idea where the mommy and daddy went.


I have no idea the name of this tree, but trust me it is one you DO NOT want to climb. Can you see the thorns on that thing???




Oh, no, it started raining!! Well, not really, this picnic table had switch you could flip that made artificial rain!!

John and Joey, my nephew, trying out big ears!! How do they look??


Joel is a great big brother and gave Joey a little lift.

Rachel and Joey aren't the only ones that can dance. I don't know what brought out this impromptu dance from John and Amy, but I was happy to have caught it on tape!!


Evan enjoyed feeding the Lorikeets.




They are very beautiful birds with great big tongues!!

This is what elephants do when they are hot and bored.

We went to Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institute and this sea dragon totally caught my fascination. I love how they just look like sea weed floating in the water. Natures creatures are totally amazing!!

Looks like everyone is having a good time. I think I would be fascinated by the Sea Dragon too. Beautiful! Lots of fun...

Loved the photos and loved--among all the other things--that you could flip a switch and have artificial rain. That's what Utah needs, a GREAT BIG ARTIFICAL RAIN SWITCH.

Cindy, thank you for your comment on my blog today. It was perfect and helped me so much. I appreciate and love you.

Fisrt of all, I did not totally freak on the submarine ride!!
Second of all, San Diego looks like it was a lot of fun. I wish we could have gone with you. That sea dragon looked cool too.
