Last October over fall break, we decided to make the trek down to Southern California! What an exciting trip for all of us:) Elli does not travel well, nor does she do well with crowds, so she stayed with Christi's parents while we were gone. Thanks, Dean and Larita! We left on a Saturday and drove to St. George, where we stayed with Christi's sister. It's always fun to see the cousins. We arrived in Los Angeles on Sunday, where we checked into our hotel. We had two rooms, each with two double beds and a hideaway. They also had a refrigerator and microwave, dishes and a dishwasher, so we were set! The space was cozy, but sufficient.
We were able to spend time at both Disneyland and Disney's California adventure, and we also spent a day at Huntington beach, playing in the sand and the surf. It was a fantastic trip and a fun adventure for all of us:) Here are some pictures and video.
Loaded and ready to go:
Proof that Parker doesn't always look good.
On the tram:
When we first arrived, we went to the desk for assistance with special needs. They were SO helpful and sweet. Among other things, they helped us get in to see Elsa and Anna. All of the characters were amazing with our kids. They let Lexi and Conner feel their outfits and their faces. Disneyland is the best!
Taylor and Parker don't look too sad to be with these princesses ;-)

Sophi continues to be convinced that Jake from "Jake and the Neverland Pirates" has a crush on her:)
