The whole entire Staheli side of my family decided to go down to Disneyland for a few days for my grandpa's "retirement" party. We had been planning it for a few months and thankfully the time finally came. There was a total of 27 of us that went and it was so much fun!!!! I will just explain the pictures instead of give a whole itinerary of our trip! And there are A LOT of pictures.

At "The Block" waiting for everyone to get to Cali!

Taylor loves to torment Gavin. It's hilarious.

Waiting to catch our shuttle...

The only reason I posted this was because my sister wanted to be in the picture. Look at her face! hahaha....

Heading into the park.

So excited to see Tiana... (at this point I told them she might still be in Lousiana)

The Hukill Girls

Makenna was so shy with the princesses. Camryn. Not so much.

I would twirl my dress too if I wore that.

Both of their favorite...

Their first rollercoaster

Gavs not scared at all.

Teacups. My sister took my place because I get sick on them.

Autotopia. Lame.

Gavs and his buddy

Our favorite ride

Gavs and Zurg

Look who I found!!! (one of my besties if you didn't know)

All tuckered out. Look at the drool!

See! Brent really was there!

Yay for Buzz!

Brent didn't fit in the rockets. So I had to go twice in a row.

Hanging on the beach.

So warm!!!

So tired!

Exhausted after all their play.

Another year....

Kenna has FINALLY started preschool again! And she loves it. I love it. I think Gavin loves it. She is going to the same place as last year, just a different teacher! And its three days a week... even better!!!

Crappy ending.

I forgot to say why it was a crappy ending... (besides having to leave the hubby up there).

So here is the story. I thought I would be smart and drive Brent's truck (which is a CNG) down to Vegas. Great idea because it costs about $12.00 to fill up. No joke. The problem. Not many pump stations around. Especially in Vegas. So I found one 10 miles away from the airport. No biggie.

Oh yes it was. I had to watch some lame A video six times (not by choice) before the special pump let me fill up. THEN! I saw a Panda Express on the sign as I was getting off. I was so excited. Except I couldn't find the dang restaurant. ANYWHERE. By the time I drove down the same street it said it was on about 30 times, I was bound and determined to really find it. I had GPS on my phone and was literally spinning circles.

Needless to say, I found the Panda

Brent and I have been married for eight freaking years. I can hardly believe it. It seems like yesterday we were just two kids (literally kids I swear) in love, not being able to keep our hands off each other. OK, so maybe it seems more like a few weeks than yesterday. The ride has been awesome.

We aren't usually ones to go all out for holidays and stuff, but since B was out of town, I was able to get a little spoiled and go visit him on the weekend. My mom was great and took the kids while I went to see him. It was a short trip, but well worth most of it until the end...

Friday when I got there, we were able to check into our hotel and then go shopping in downtown. I thought the shopping would be amazing, and maybe it is in some places, but I couldn't find much until we hit a Ross. I know, totally crazy, but I found two cute shirts there. When we were walking back to the hotel, we (and when I say we, I mean Brent) stopped to see this dude in a full length bright blue unitard. I wish I had my camera. He was doing a puppet show, but it ended up looking like a porn. Seriously. It was crazy. So we left.

Saturday we slept in until 10:30 (yay for us!) and then we headed to our CONCERT! It was in the desert of Washington (it looked like Utah), called The Gorge at George. It took 2 1/2 hours to get there, but once he stood on the stage, it was SO worth it.... He as in KEITH URBAN! If you have ever seen him in concert, you will know what I'm talking about. He is A-MAY-ZING. Oh my gosh. So great.... And SO HOT! WANT TO TOUCH THE HINEY....

Sorry, I got off track a little bit. Anyway, so he performed and then some dude named John Mayer came out and sang a couple of Keith's songs with him... And then he (Keith) finished. And it was wonderful! And then John Mayer came out and did his concert. Which was great. But I'm not going to lie. We left early because it was 10:30 when his part started so we left after a few songs since we had a 2 1/2 hour drive BACK and didn't want to get killed by all of the wasted people getting into their cars. Plus we had to wake up super early the next morning. He was good, but kind of slarvey... but I guess he can be if he's a rock star. The only time I had my camera was at the concert so there are just a few pics.

PS. I know I look nasty. Let me explain. First off, my face hates Seattle. It hates everything really, but especially Seattle. So don't mind the zits. Second, it was an outside venue and we waited two hours before the show started. OK... enjoy! YAY!!!

Waiting with the drunks!

Our "seats"

Gross huh?
