Happiest Place on Earth!

A few weeks ago, we took a little family trip to Disneyland!  Oh what fun we had!  We spent 6 days at the Happiest Place on Earth and we were ready to go back as soon as we got home! ;)  Here are some fun pics from our awesome trip.
We went during 'Halloween Time' - so fun to see it decorated!
In front of the castle. It was hotter than blazes the first couple of days. 
Maya - with her face painted.  So excited to have makeup, and especially glitter!
Maya's not too impressed - but we sure are! ;)
With Walt and Mickey at California Adventure
Maya had the time of her life!

Maya got to meet a lot of characters!
Donald was so cute with Maya!
Maya got to pet Pluto and kiss Mickey's nose!
Dancing with Goofy
Hugs from Minnie
Twirling with Tink - they loved each other's shoes. ;)
Checking out Fawn's wings
Hugs from Buzz and a wave from Woody on his way out!
Kisses from Donald - she sure loved her some Donald!
At the Princess Lunch - Maya (dressed as Tiana) was in heaven!
And we already can't wait to go back! ;)
Our whole world!

Waiting for our flight home.  We could have stayed forever!

Summer Fun

Wow, what a fun summer we've had so far!
Time together is always the best!
Maya has had a lot of fun helping me and Grandma clean at the park. 
We've loved spending A LOT of time outside - sidewalk chalk coloring is the best! 
Maya is getting quite adventurous climbing everything in sight!
The splash pad is always a favorite spot to hang out!
Maya loves helping me weed the flower garden (and smell, and pick the flowers)
Rachae's brother and sister (and their families) came to visit from out of state, so we've
had a lot of FUN family time!
Independence day was a blast trying to find a good spot to watch fireworks. 
Checking out the carnival booths
All of the cousins enjoying Lagoon together!
We're only missing 2 nephews who are serving religious missions for our church. 
Maya is now big enough to ride the kiddy rides at Lagoon - she was so excited!

May - Hooray!

May is a pretty fun month!  Preschool ends for the summer for me and, even though I work part-time, it means I get to spend even MORE time being a mommy!

My (Rachael's) birthday also falls in May!  All I wanted for my birthday was a get-away with my cute little family!  So, Brandon got a hotel near Salt Lake City.  We shopped, slept-over, and played!  It was the best birthday ever!

Maya had her own bed!

Shopping with her daddy

This quiet night had me in heaven!  Sleeping babe next to us while we talk about our family and our future.
