Spring Break

We took the kids to California for Spring Break this year.  We spent two days at the beach and three days at Disneyland before heading home.  This was our first ever Disney vacation and it was a big hit.

Hannah was enchanted by the princesses. 

Ben and Daniel were both tall enough to ride most of the rides, and young enough to think they were fun.  You won’t catch me on the Hollywood Tower of Terror again!!! –  But both of those crazy boys would have ridden it a second time in a heart beat.

Daniel and I rode Space Mountain together.  As we were leaving I looked over at the monitors to find the picture of us on the ride.  I saw myself (holding on for dear life) but a tall man was sitting in front of Danny so I couldn’t see him.  The only clue that he was in the seat next to me was a pair of little hands poking up in the air above the man’s head.

Yup.  Me, hanging on for dear life, and Daniel with both hands above his head.

The Beach

My kids love the ocean.  Our first and last day in CA were spent on the beach.  I think they thought the beach was just as much fun as Disneyland.

The kids had a great time at low tide searching the tide pools for treasures. This is what Dan found:

And Ben found a cool crab leg.

Hannah and Dan march resolutely into the cold water.

Ben loved playing tag with the surf.

And my crazy Husband waded way out into the cold water.  I of course stayed nice and dry on the beach.

Hannah played in the water too.

The kids build a magnificent sandcastle…

that the ocean claimed as it’s own.

Jacob got his first taste of the beach.

It was a great Spring Break!

  1. Great pictures! Reminds me of when my boys were younger…they are all grown up now, but I still have the picture memories.
    I hope you enjoyed your vacation. I was born and raised in Southern California and I must say it has changed…alot!
    Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures.
