Happy Halloween!

Bradlee was Woody this year. I packed our week so full of activities that I didn't get any other pictures than these. Bradlee was dressed up almost every day the week of halloween. I think he had a good time, though. I, however, am so glad that this holiday is over. Right now I am excited for snow and Christmas, but I am sure I will change my mind by the time December gets here.

Disneyland Trip #4

This picture just about sums up our trip to Disneyland. We were exhausted! (but in a good way) It was so much fun to spend a week at our favorite place to vacation. These pictures are not in order at all, but I am too lazy to do anything about it.

On the train with Daddy

The cutest action figure ever

We LOVE everything about Walt Disney and his fabulous park!


Meeting Buzz Lightyear was a highlight of our trip. Bradlee was extremely excited.

We stood in quite the line to meet the fairies at pixie hollow, but we are sure glad we did. Bradlee watched the new Tinker Bell movie right before our trip, so he was pretty excited to meet Silvermist, Vidia and Tinker Bell.

Our Little "BUG" Family

Bradlee really likes the ride Splash Mountain, as well as the story of Brier Bear and Brier Fox. Meeting them was very exciting as well.


Bradlee and Josh love to sit by the drop on the bear river run ride. You can get soaked by waiting there for the rafts to come down. Since Bradlee is still too short for that ride, this is how we compromise. This day at the park was about 90 degrees, so getting wet was well worth it. Even mom got pretty wet.

Bradlee loves Mulan more than any other character. He could watch the movies all day. I found out when Mulan would be there and we booked it over to her. Luckily, she did not have too many fans that day, so Bradlee got to have a good conversation with her. He even gave her two kisses on the cheek.

Before we went to our first day at the park. Can you tell that he is SOOOO excited?

It's a Small World ride

And our family photo. We have been to Disneyland four times and never gotten a picture in this spot. I am so glad we did this time.

Bradlee Turned 4!

We love this guy to death! Bradlee is the sweetest kid ever. I can't believe he is already 4. In his four years of me taking pictures daily, he has become quite the little model.

Birthday Weekend in Vegas

May 16th was my birthday and I turned 25. What's even better is that Jeff's birthday is the same day, but he turned 30. Those are some pretty big birthdays. This year, our wonderful spouses surprised us with a Las Vegas getaway. It totally caught me off guard, but it was the best weekend ever. They had a "pirate" theme and so Josh gave me a pirate hat and told me I had 25 minutes to get packed.

Here we are in the car after I just found out that this was a trip with our best friends.

In our Hotel room at the Treasure Island Casino

We got to experience many coke flavors from around the world at the Coke Factory. They were pretty good, except for one. These are our expressions after tasting the nasty one.

We went to the Tournament of Kings dinner and show. Melissa got us tickets in the Russia section. We had to eat the food with our hands (no silverware). We were each served a whole chicken (I think it was a cornish game hen) and boy was that fun to eat with my hands. We got to bang on the tables and eat while the horses flipped mud into our laps. What a great night.

Josh also made us reservations for couples massages. We had never done that before and it was amazing. I have the best husband ever and we have the best friends ever to be able to pull this off.

Lost Party

The Bennett's got us hooked on the show LOST. I started watching it from the beginning while the final season was going on. I pretty much watched 6 seasons in two months. For the final episode, we had an awesome party to celebrate. It was very much LOST themed. Melissa and I did a great job and we had a very fun time.

The kids welcoming the new recruits (you have to watch the show to get that)

We all picked a character to be and had a name tag on with that characters name. Even the kids participated.

The Hatch (or the front door)

The food was amazing, as usual, when we get together. We are so proud of our spread.
