Family Vacation

About a year ago Carter asked us if we could all go to Disneyland. Craig told him that if he earned enough money to pay for his own 2 day pass ($110) then we would go...well, he did it. He has been so diligent and responsible with his money. I have been so impressed with him, and proud of his hard work and stick-to-it-ivness. Craig and I decided it would be really fun to bring our neighbor Lisa, who is 15, and our super ninja baby sitter. It was pretty much the best family vacation ever, and we all had an amazing time. We didn't have any major catastrophes, no broken bones, not even one item of luggage was lost...amazing! We kept our schedule loose, so we didn't have any stress about making it any where on time. It was lovely.

1 of 4 knows how to cheese it.


The first day we pretty much drove most of the day, but the kids all did a great job of not asking "are we there yet" every 5 minutes. we drove to Vegas, and checked in to our hotel, Treasure Island, and were very excited to find that we were on the 23rd floor, and had a great view of the pirate ship battle out our window. We had dinner in a rain forest restaurant, and Benson was pooped, so we settled the kids down for a movie after dinner. Lisa had never been to Vegas, so she and I walked down to watch the fountain show...that is my favorite thing in Vegas for sure. When we got back to the hotel Craig and the kids were all fast asleep, so we followed suit.
