This is how the baby spent the trip- being perfect. And sweet. And happy. I just love this little face. Also, thanks for the hat Laura! It was perfect!

3- Uncle Sucker bought the boys suckers while he waited for Jeff and I and the big boys to finish on Splash Mountain. Jojy LOVES lollipops.
4-The boys spent their own money on buying these Buzz lasers. It was Nanos and Bear's money, but they made sure to budget buying one for Jojy too. Good brothers.
5,6,7- Buzz Lightyear ride. You try to get targets in this ride with Laser Guns.
8-I took a picture of the picture of us. Not good resolution, but if you click on it, you may be able to see that Bear thought he was going to die.
9- Happy boys.
10- SO SO tired. They actually fell asleep on the side walk waiting for a tram to take us back to the hotel for a nap.
11 and 12- On Dumbo.
13- This rented stroller are designed for one child, NOT three.
14- The baby fit perfectly in Daddy's jacket when it got cool.
15- Posing with the White Rabbit.
16-Trying to pull the Sword from the Stone.

This is one of the ways that they discovered to pass the time while we waited in line...again, and again...and again.

The second picture at the fountain was taken right before Rick got chewed out by a California Adventure park employee for lifting Jojy over the fence and standing him on the fountain wall. Another person nearby was surprised at the employee's overreaction, but was soon to be absolutely shocked when Jeff (who had been some distance away) walked over to Rick and said "Excuse me, sir. I CAN NOT believe you would put your son on that fountain. That is unbelievably inappropriate! I'm shocked." Hahahaha! The woman's jaw was on the floor. At least they gave a her a good story to tell her friends later about the poor guy who kept getting bawled out by strangers. Ha!
Thanks for coming Rick- if only to be Jojy's ride. This trip was a total fast pass.

First, I would like to point out that although I'll post a lot of pictures, it won't be anything near the 357 photos I took on this trip.
Also, to view these pictures in chronological order, start from the "And we're back" post and read up.

We decided to drive to California rather than fly, well, because, we're crazy. But more than crazy, we were too poor to afford the air fare. Here are photos of all of us on the first leg of our drive, when we were bursting with excitement and long before the children realized that the long hours in the car would be absolute misery.

We're home from California! I know I left all of you hanging, poor little dears, crying for want of blog posts, so not to worry, you'll get to see what we did while we were away.
Here is a photo we took at the San Diego temple on Easter Sunday. I set it up with just the timer on the camera. Not perfect, but it's cute...kinda like us!
(You may notice the boys aren't wearing dress shoes- when we went to church you could see exactly which families were visitors on vacation because all their kids were wearing sneakers...hehehehe. Seriously, we packed nearly everything we owned, I couldn't stomach the thought of packing a separate pair of shoes just for a part of one day.)

Aside from his perfect pink smile, check out this kid's lashes.
This is a perfect Gabey grin. Not his biggest smile, but his most common. You can't tell me that he doesn't look like the most perfect pleasant baby you've ever seen when you look at this photo. Well, I suppose you could say it, but you'd be lying. You don't want to be a liar do you? Then you better not say it.
Another thing I love about him (besides his patient, content, and jovial demeanor) is that even though he's not very fat (which I love in babies), he's perfectly soft. Just a few fat creases and dimpled knuckles. When he's just in his diaper I just want to scoop him up and bury my face in his neck. His naked state is what inspired this photo shoot.

3- We had froggies when our oldest was about 3yrs. They lived in their own little eco system in a tall vase with a plant. I think they lived off the moss and algae. Then they disappeared slowly. I realized later that they had jumped out of the vase, died, dried up to little raisins and I vacuumed them up. I figured it out when I was about the vacuum up the last one and realized we hadn't had raisins for months- upon inspection of the raisin I discovered the awful truth- but it's kinda funny now.

Jeff sat with him and held on the bandage with the numbing gel, and told him stories to keep him still. What a great daddy.
Jojy was sweet and precocious with the nurses, and aside from a few minutes of crying, pretty patient during the stitching. He didn't like being strapped down and unable to rub his eyes when water got in them.
