Disneyland 2011

Ok Tracee, I finally did it. Here are the Disneyland pics. We all decided to go for Steve's 60th birthday. It was actually the first trip we have been on as a whole family besides the Homestead. The trip was exhausting but it was a total blast. Thanks Karen Berthelson for the awesome hotel hook-up!

We started our trip with John and Mariah. We stopped at some weird train McDonald's filled with tourists from other countries who pissed off Jamon:)

So, putting this many pics up was such a pain. They are organized by day but the days are out of order. Takes too long to fix it...

Day 3...
We LOVE the Acedos!!!The girls wanted a pic in the teacups just like one from when they were kids. Jamon had to join in.The Allen family:)Funny story. Keegan did NOT want to go on Thunder Mountain Railroad. The Matterhorn scarred him and he thought there would be an ice monster on this ride too.The girl at the front of the line was so nice to him though. She talked him in to going to see the ride and when they got to the loading platform, she gave him a "citizen of Disneyland" pin and got on the loudspeaker. She told everyone that this was his first time on the ride and they need to help him out. Everyone on the ride and all the workers started clapping for him. He got really brave and totally dominated!These two are good buddies
Cuckoo!!!!! These people brought dolls instead of children. They were taking them all around and photographing them.
Keegan's first Splash Mountain ride:)

Thanks Josh for the GoPro!!Day 2... (Spent the whole day at California Adventures but barely took any pictures)

Phineas and Ferb Dance Party!!
We were all certified Wilderness Explorers!Day 1...

This is what happens at the end of Day 1:)
I am so going to rub this in his face when he gets older... Keegan loved It's a Small World:)This picture doesn't show them very well but I bought Brax this awesome beanie with Mickey ears on it:)Waiting for the big parade

One of Keegan and Braxton's favorite rides was the new submarine with Nemo. It was awesome!!Thanks Tim for the sweet shirts!!On the way home we went to the beach. We started out telling the kids they wouldn't be getting in the water. This is how they ended up...That is not pee by the way!
