After Disney we headed to Vegas to meet up with Missy and her two girls. Missy's husband Mike (Bill's brother) is deployed and I thought it was great she drove up to meet us and then traveled with us all the way to Reno. In Vegas we took the kids to a childrens museum which was a lot of fun. They had a dress up area which I was not happy about (being a germ freak) but the kids were already grabbing costumes pulling them on before I had much of a chance to say no. Greydon of course was a ninja batman doing his cool moves and Dylan well Mickey was the obvious choice.
In Reno we met up with Bill's parents and it was great to lounge around the hotel for a few days and just swim and visit and not rush anywhere. All the kids had sunglasses so we could not resist getting a group shot.
We don't have lots of fabulous pics to really share of our trip. Most of the time we were just too busy and I didn't think about it and then we started the trip with a dead camera battery. You'd think that would be something I checked before we left but apparently NO.... I felt like the biggest idiot and was so mad but luckily Kara and Peter offered their camera along with their babysitting and child assist skills :) Thanks again guys !!
One of the reasons I love this pictures is that it was the end of day one and Dylan was done. They were hot and tired, tired of walking, etc. and he had just started to cry and we turned a corner and saw Lightning who is one of his very favorites and suddenly he was happy again and the day ended on smiles which I love.
Alright it has been a really long time since I updated this blog. I keep intending to get it done & then life interupts all my good intentions and plans :) So we went to Disneyland a few months ago and had an amazing time. The boys had such looks of joy the whole time we were there it was great. I was nervous about how it would be with Benjamin who was a mere 3 1/2 months old at the time but he was great. To help us out we had my neice and her husband go with us and it made the trip much easier and we had a lot of fun with them. I loved seeing the kids excited about the rides and the characters. It was a great time and I highly recommend going if you can.
