Family Portraits

My cousin Amy took some family pictures last month for us. Here are the best of what she took. It would be nice if some day Lucy would sit still, look at the camera and smile while a picture is being taken. Until then here’s what we got.

A great one of my whole family.

Here are the pictures of us that look the best. Tell us which one you like the best.

Amy does really good work. If you need a photographer she is available for higher

Disneyland Trip

Last weekend we returned from our family trip to Disneyland It was great to get away from the below freezing temperatures of Utah and be in the California sun for a little while. We did get a little bit of rain but it was still better weather then here.

Lucy, Ariane and my self went down.

Along with my parents
In Toon Town

My brother Greg and his wife Stacey
Out front of "Its a Small World"

And my sister Alison
In line for "Pirates of the Caribbean"

We had so much fun. We met all kinds of characters; we went to Pixie Hollow where we met Tinkerbelle and her friend Fawn.

Lucy also got a balloon Tink at a restaurant we went to, she loves Tinkerbelle

The princess’s Cinderella, Snow White & Sleeping Beauty.

Repunzle and Flynn Rider


Lightning McQueen and Mater

Woody and a Green Army Man

Minnie Mouse

and of Course Mickey Mouse

We also me a bunch of Star Wars Characters
Lucy was not hip on meeting Darth Maul.

One of Lucy’s favorite movies is “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, they redo the Haunted Mansion ride at Christmas time for this movie.
Lucy was really excited to ride this and meet Jack Skelington inside. She also wanted to get a bunch of Jacks souvenirs.

We rode so many rides. Like the Tea Cups, two different Merry Go Rounds, Dumbo, the Rockets, Bugs Life Train, Monsters Inc & Toy Story to name a few.

Some of us were even brave enough to ride Grizzly River Rapids.

We spent some time playing around Toon Town.
Lucy loved being there.

We had lunch at Club 33
Here we are on the balcony looking out on New Orleans Square & Ariane had her picture taken in the phone booth that was used in the movie “The Happiest Millionaire”.

Every day we had a different themed shirt. Denver Broncos, St. Louis Cardinals, Ireland, Cereal, University of Utah, Star Wars, Utah State University and Minnie Mouse or other Disney character like Jack Skellington or Grumpy (Greg wore a different Grumpy shirt everyday)

We also took a day and went to see the Newport Beach temple and the ocean.
Lucy had a lot of fun playing on the beach with Uncle Greg.

It was a great trip, we had so much fun. Disneyland is one of my families favorite places to go on vacation. If anyone is planning a trip let us know we’d love to come along.
