it's okay it's okay it's okay it's okay it's okay it's okay

a lot of pics from disneyland, etc.

We had a fabulous time in Disneyland with the Bankhead's last week. We stayed at the Candy Cane Inn which is a motel and it's really cute! I'll keep the comments short but highlights for me were having Ellie be big enough to go on most of the rides, including Tower of Terror! Watching Jann go go go. Using FastPasses to their full potential. Reliving the beach. Eating. And sleepovers with the kids.

ride to a witch!

Well it's about time I showed some pictures of our little buddies, Molly and Ethan. They are just about the cutest kids ever and we love to hang out with them. Saturday night we went up to Gardner's Village to ride a tractor to a witch's home, ride ponies, pet goats, get lost in a hay maze, and eat yummy soup and sugar cookies.

PhotobucketThis large goat wanted to snuggle up to Cody. Cody didn't realize it was there for a good couple minutes. Once he did he was pretty scared.

Some funny things to remember:
-Jumping off the tractor at full speed with a kid in each arm (hey, we were passing the food!).
-Emily getting trampled by goats while the Donkey hee-haws.
-Cody realizing that I'm not holding his hand while riding the pony.

the bird

Today I took the kids up to Snowbird to pick up some skis I bought when we were backpacking a couple weeks ago. We made a day of it and hiked around, ate lunch, rode the tram and watched the first tracks of the season being made (jealous). I LOVE hanging out with my kids! We wished daddy could be with us but he is gone working hard for us.

sarah oliva

Meet Sarah. My beautiful, talented, super smart cousin and the darling of our extended family. She has become an amazing person through lots of challenges and I look up to her so much.

She is a senior and already planning her graduation announcements and asked me to take pictures. I was nervous that I wouldn't be able to get any good shots as I really don't know what I'm doing but we got quite a few, mostly thanks to Sarah and her modeling skills.
