where have we been?

D-land, of course! Most of Brad's family (minus Ashley's trio and Elder Summers) came down last week and we all met up at the theme park. It was sooooooo fun to see everyone. It's been way too long. Will loved meeting and hanging out with his cousins. What a fun group of kids, eh? Too bad Gracie wasn't feeling up to a photo shoot... and aren't my sisters-in-law total babes?! And yes, they always look that good. And if I look tired, it's because I was.

Notice those passes around our necks? They were instant fast passes for the best rides! It was awesome. Mother Summers thought it was a miracle we got them, haha. It was pretty amazing though. Let's hear it for the wish granter and the year of a million dreams! We also got some pretty sweet Family Reunion pins. Brad only realized they had the Incredibles on them after the end of the day. That's my husband for ya! Annnnnd we got some free Mickey Mouse bread loafs, too. The whole day was just perfect.

That night we crashed at Mom & Dad's hotel. The next morning we enjoyed a nice meal at Coco's in Anaheim where I met Ashley and her cute little family, of all people! Random!!! And then, on Sunday Jon & Christa's gang joined us for a little California action. We're trying to talk them into coming out here. Especially since Jon is toying with the idea of taking the CA bar when Brad does. It would be awesome if they did. [sigh] I just love Brad's family. I really lucked out with some great in-laws...

Good times. I mean, awesome times. *B
