Swine Flu=Disneyland

California here we come..........oh wait, we're back and it's been a month! Okay, so I suck at keeping all of you caught up on our lives. Every year mom and dad Allen (aka Tay's parentals) give us a trip to San Carlos, Mexico. We were all so excited to see each other and lye on the beach, when suddenly the Swine Flu struck and was made a bigger deal than it needed to be. Oh, I forgot to mention that this happened one week prior to going. We were all in a dither, but the parentals put together a trip to the Happiest Place on earth...Disneyland!

Day 1...We meet at Tay's parents and leave. Taylor pulls into the wrong hotel and we get separated from the rest. We find the right hotel and hop out of the car. Rooms aren't ready, so we hang out in Nate and Caitie's room hoping that no action has occurred :). Dax falls and cries. Cam falls and cries. Dax chokes on licorice and cries. Cam teases Tay so that he can wrestle with him. Dade and Tayen laugh and comfort Dax. Robin stresses about us getting into our rooms. Rooms are ready. Head to the pool and swim. Eat dinner. Go to sleep.

Day 2...Disneyland!
Dade and Tayen let everyone know what the rules are.
1.Have fun!
2.No crying or whining unless you want a character to carry you out of the park
3.No carrying. We can rest, but no being picked up
4.No asking for things, we get to pick something the last day
5.No fighting
6.Ride every ride that you are tall enough for. (even if it's a little scary)

What can I say? Rides and more Rides.

Day 3...Free breakfast. Disneyland. Stuck on Grizzly Bear Rapids. Escorted out of Rapids. Run into Tay's friend that he works with. Cheesecake Factory for Tay's and Dayton's b-day. Stuff our faces. Dade falls asleep at the table. We laugh and almost pee our pants. Yummy food. Fantastic cheesecake. Too full to walk to the hotel. Wish we hadn't eaten so much.

Day 4...Breakfast. Disneyland. Wet clothes. Hunger pains. IHOP. Hotel. Sleepy

Day 5...Breakfast. Goodbyes. Ride home. Home sweet home.

Day 6...Back to reality and working out.

We're alive....well, sort of!

A little catch up for you all!

Although our lives aren't too exciting, some events have happened. Easter came and went along with a lot of rain. I quit the school to work full time as a Chef, and the boys made the honor and principals honor for the 3rd time! Tay and I are so very proud of them. They are getting so big. I look at them sometimes and wonder where the time has gone. I still carry them down the stairs in the morning and I will continue to until my knees give out. Tayen lost his 2nd tooth and keeps asking when he will lose more so that he can get more money to catch up to Dade. School is out in 2 1/2 days and the boylies are so very excited. A Utah visit is in the works, and they can't wait to see all of their cousins and grandparents.
