Ferry Pictures

As promised here are more pictures from the ferry. I have the best group of boys... they suffer through family photos :-).

Another trip to Disneyland

I know, I know, I have the BEST Job in the WORLD! So last week I had to go down to Burbank with some of my coworkers for a confernce. While we were there we we got to take an Access class (I know sounds boring, but to me I LOVED IT and I learned so much!!). Then On tuesday night we particpated in Minnie's Moonlight Madness, which is a scavenger hunt through the park after it has closed... sorry no pics. Then Wednesday was our "Team Building" day. So the four of us went to the park.

Here is two of my coworks, Molly an Admin from another department and Cindy (the blonde) is my counterpart who I adore working with, she is really great.
We were on the tram on the way into the park. Molly hadn't been there since she was 4 and she was VERY giddy. It made me seem not so pathetic to be excited to be heading back again!

This is Cindy & I in line for the Jungle Cruise, I love this ride, but this time the guide was TERRIBLE. I had hoped to go again so I could forget that expierence, but no luck! You may be wondering how you can be bad at the Jungle Cruise jokes, trust me you can!

This is our third co-worker Lynn (she is also David's boss). This picture was taken right after we loaded onto the River Ride... before we all got SOAKED to the bone.. BEFORE my camera broke... that's right no more pictures. After this one my camera turned off and never came back on. Thank goodness for memory cards!

It was a great trip. Between the access class, the team building and the Accounting conference I had a great time!

Memorial Day!

We had a great day on Memorial day. For a treat we decided to drive down to the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquariam in Tacoma. It started out an interesting day... I got my first EVER speeding ticket. I am REALLY bummed about his. 13 years of driving and this is the first time I have EVER gotten a ticket. The worst part is after he wrote the ticket my mom recognized his name as one of my older's sister's boyfriend and a neihbor of ours, so he said "if I had know who you were I would have just given you a warning" :-O. I could not believe it... so now the debate of should I fight it, go in and ask to reduce it or buck it up and pay the ticket. It just stinks, but I guess it was bound to happen at some point.

So we arrived at the zoo and had a great time!

Here is Josiah Posing for a picture.

The Elephants.

Me and the boys being eaten by a shark...

Josiah enjoying the starfish.

On the way home I decided it would be fun to drive up to Kingston & take the ferry home. Josiah had only been on a passenger ferry & not a car ferry before so off we went.

I wish I could tell you how many takes this picture took... boys.

I will have to post our ferry's pictures later... I am having issues with the blog tonight.

One of my favorite things...

For those of you who have never been to Disneyland, or for those who have never noticed it, there is a Silhouette shop in Disneyland. Now, you maybe wondering what I am talking about, but first let me describe it.
It's a small store front and I mean small, three of us in the store made it so crowded you couldn't move. On one side a lady sits in a char with a small pair of scissors and a stack of black paper. A chair sits in front of her for her guests. Next to her another Cast Member is glueing the silhouettes to paper and selling them with the optional frame.
I had this done with Alex years ago (I think he was two and I brought a picture of him with me).
Well this last trip, I wanted both the boys to sit in the chair and have this done to hang on my wall. On Saturday night I had to drag both boys away long enough for this to happen. I really wish I had gotten photos of her doing this amazing talent. She Cut Josiah's face out in less than a minute & Alex the same way. Then they were glued. It is by far one of my favorite souvenirs that I will proudly hang on my wall for a long time...
Below is a scanned verison of it, I don't think it does it justice, remember, these heads are two seperate pieces of paper glued down and hand cut.

Finally! More Disneyland photos....

on the jungle cruise...

My brother in law, Luke and my mom enjoying Goofy's company. in case you were wondering, Goofy is the one in the middle, not the one on the right.

Kim & Cori with Goofy...

Dale just didn't give up (see earlier post), he really wanted that plate of food, he is lucky to be alive

Nothing like embarassing teenage boys in disneyland....

I actually love this picture, but Chris is purposely looking down... I guess my new talent in photshop will come in handy, when I get the new and improved photo I will post it.

I really wish we had gotten more pictures of Gunnar & Alex, but they were trying really hard to avoid the camera.

The next few photos are from the Buzz Lightyear ride. We all rode it a couple of times and competed against each others score... it was a BLAST...

There are some new photos for you.... I will add some more later!
