Adoption and Sealing date

We were able to get a sooner adoption date to adopt Emmie. We will adopt her June 25th. So we will have her sealed to us Friday June 26th at 6:00pm. We just got some family pictures taken at the temple for our sealing invitations. We are excited to go into the Temple together as a family and have Emmie officially apart of our family.

New playset

Even though we have a pool the kids still needed something to play with outside. So we got them a cool swing set and slide. Half of it is for them and half is for me. It gives them something to do when I need to get things done around the house. We bought it from Aaron's cousin and his site is http://www.ruffhouseplaysystems.com

This thing is so cool! It has a mister system and the set never gets hot so the kids will even enjoy this through the hot summer! We are all in love with it! Emmie loves the swing and Hayden loves the squirt gun!

It even has a picnic table underneath

Water gun fun!

California Adventures

The last day of our trip we went to California Adventures! I really like this park a lot and had lots of fun. It has some of the coolest rides (Soarin), cool things for kids and of course the Aladdin show is so good. Even though we went here in December I rode several rides I didn't last time. The Toy Story arcade ride is so fun, I missed that last time but I am so glad we waited in the line for that one. There wasn't many lines at either park but that ride always seems to have a long line. The bug 4D movie is so scary but we watched it twice. We had a blast! We also knew it was our last day so we took advantage of it.

And even though Disneyland has awesome parades, I do love the Pixar one too. Its always so cute and fun and it has all the characters that Hayden knows and loves.

Isn't that Mr Potato head so cute!? It looked like the real thing but bigger.

Goofy's kitchen

After our 2nd day of Disneyland we took a day off to rest. We did go to Goofy's kitchen for a character breakfast at the Disneyland hotel. We went later in the morning so we had a brunch. I really love the character breakfast....its fun, great food, great service, the characters hang out a lot with the kids and do little activites with them. Justin and his family also went with us. This time Emmie enjoyed herself better and didn't cry at all the characters.
