Silly girls, they were so excited! This was our first "are we there yet?"- type of trip. :)
First day in CA Adventure with Minnie.

A picture is worth 1000 words... car story at the end if you're interested.A Bug's Land
Kylie and Matthew on Big Thunder Mountain.
Just relaxing, it would be a great picture if I wasn't moving my hand. Sorry. For all who don't know, that's my Mom. She's awesome. We got adjoining rooms so the girls could drive her nuts instead of us. It worked :)

Love this, the big 2 (by that I mean Matthew and Kylie) went on Tower of Terror and we found Sully. I've got like 20 pictures of this, so precious...

He didn't hug anyone else :)
Matthew and all 3 girls on the carousel... Kadyn's first ride.

Kylie was finally tall enough for Screamin' in CA Adv. Matthew stuck folded napkins in her heels and she had on huge soled shoes... but finally!!! She loved it, front row and all!!!!

The group on the Tea Cups, pink of course... every time!
(Matthew and his stupid cars hat, you wouldn't believe how many people look at him... us, me... and I'm like, yeah hi people, yes my husband is crazy.)

Too sweet.

I love this one, she is giggling up a storm!!!

The whole family on the carousel.
US on Dumbo- Kacey's favorite.

The End :)
Car Story---
I decided I wanted to start our car every day while we were there, even though we weren't going to be driving it. Our DVD drains our car battery, why we have no idea, but we just got a new one a month ago so we weren't too concerned... but still, I thought I'd keep starting the car. Good thing I did, because it didn't start the day after we got down there and I'm glad we didn't find that it out the day we were coming home.
SO, I called AAA hoping it was the battery.
Waited for the guy to come. Nope, it was "something mechanical, with the engine" the guy told me. Good times. What can I expect, we bought the car right before we had Kylie. So, we had it towed to some random shop, where we were completely at their mercy, or stuck in Anaheim forever. I was grateful, only 600 bucks and we were on our way. I've had a bad feeling something was due to go wrong... only I thought it would be a couple grand. So I was pleasantly surprised with this... and NO Matthew, no new car. Remember the "I think I'm going to throw up" by daughter #2 on the drive down to Disneyland... case and point, no new car just yet. :) The car is better, we got a new fuel pump (?) and it got us home safe and sound.

WHOA, flashback!

I can't believe someone took pictures of this... way way back when, like '03 I think.... Matthew's youngest brother Aaron (who we're trying to marry off, hint hint) was in a dunk contest at BYU. And, if you marry a BOYD or even know a BOYD than you know that once a BOYD enters a dunk contest, a BOYD must win the said dunk contest. Creativity is always a factor in winning, so I think (if memory serves me correctly) Matthew came up with this little number for Aaron.
***That's me, Kaylan, and Amy laying on the ground being "dunked" over. Aaron made the basket, and cleared us-- I know Amy was thankful about that since she's on the end where he'd be landing... :)And he won the dunk contest! :)

Sunday Afternoon Pictures

Sometimes I think it's the bloopers that are the best! (notice Matthew's hand and the toy in mid air)

Okay, we got 1 where everyone's looking at the camera.

Me and my girls!

Saturday Afternoon

So it was barely 90 yesterday, we had no clue what to do. Saturday is "family pool day," and the pool went from 92 degrees to 80... it was freezing so that was out!!! So we took the girls to the park to play and have a picnic. (no worries, we were able to get in the pool at about 4:30... the water had warmed back up to 90)Kacey was more interested in the picnic than playing frisbee.Pretty girls, I can't wait until Kadyn can stand and walk. I have so many pictures of the 2 older girls, I can't wait until I can tell all 3 to go stand by the tree so I can take a picture.
