Newport Beach May 2012

Warning - this post is picture heavy.  I wanted to write down some memories from our vacation as it was one of the best we've had.  Sam loved Disneyland so much and hasn't stopped talking about it since we got home.  He keeps saying "I want to go home" I tell him we are home, and he says "No to the hotel and the buzz lightyear right home".  I love that he loves Disney so much.  He was such a happy child the whole time we were there and can't wait to go back.  We are already planning our next trip so we can go back and see Cars Land this fall!

Frankly I can't believe I'm putting this picture in - its so much of my stomach!  But I LOVE this picture of Sam and love how I can see Mike smiling from looking at his eyes.  This was Sam's first time on the roller coaster in Toontown and he was so excited and loved it.  I love how he's holding up his hands and so excited.

Jake couldn't wait to see the Phineas and Ferb parade and then was afraid of the big characters - but Sam loved it

Sam was in heaven the whole trip
