We'd have to be much better at pacing ourselves if we were to ever get one of those 3 or 4 day park-hopper passes. Two days in the parks just about did us in - although so many memories were made and fun times were had in the meantime.

We caught the spectacular fireworks show at the end of our first day - spent mainly at California Adventure, with the last few hours in Disneyland for the street dance parade, dinner, the Finding Nemo sub ride and probably the best fireworks I've ever seen!

Toon Town soaked up much of the afternoon on day 2. So many fun places for the kids to climb and make believe! Bennett had his first cotton candy (or so he says) in the fine evening weather and it was less crowded than other destinations... why would we leave?

Teacups was one of the rides the kids were fortunate enough to ride twice with Disney's great baby swap card.

I tried to tell them about the REAL Matterhorn, but they're pretty sure this one's better.

Made me very concerned for 10 & 12 years down the road to see these two behind the wheel.

We waited "patiently" in line for an hour for a precious photo with Audrey's favorite princesses. Isn't Ariel perfect?

Meanwhile, Rob took Bennett for some boy time at the Jedi Training Camp. He got to fight Darth Vader himself and came away with Jedi certification!

Taking a break in the shade while Rob held our place in line for "It's a Small World". This had to be Jeremiah's favorite as we floated through room after room of happy singing characters - so much to look at!

More waiting... this pic is so similar to one we took of these two 3 years ago when we came... they're a little bigger now.

Ok, I seriously did not recognize Audrey in that first picture of her! She's so grown up. Looks like you guys had tons of fun though.

Looks like you guys had tons of fun! I couldn't figure out why Bennet was going crazy in the video, until I saw Lightning McQueen coming down the street!

We're totally going with you next time! Seeing your pictures brings back some good childhood memories!

Your kids look like they are in HEAVEN! So you did decide to take Jeremiah after all- how did that work out? I want to go to Disneyland someday.

What a great trip. My kids are begging us to take them. I just want them to be old enough to remember everything and not have to deal with naps.

I aree with Krystal, I did not recognize Audrey in the first picture. I am so happy that you had a great time. Disneyland is one of the best vacation places. I love the pictures especially the one where Audrey is crossed eyed. I can't even cross my eyes.

What a great memory maker! Looks like soooo much fun! I agree with Aaron and Krystal, Audrey all of a sudden looks like a young lady, sniff sniff, where does the time go... I love Bennett and his super serious and proud face, he's looking so much like ROB! Crazy huh. Love you!! Sorry I'm a late poster, my laptop got spilled on and now the keys h,y,n and the number 6 are out of commission. A girl can only copy and paste so many times, haha. Had to resort to the bedroom computer, That's desperate, lol. Happy EASTER!!! btw =)
