California Adventure and Family Fun

The last week has been so fun for us. Jeremy's parents took the whole family to Disneyland for a week. We are so grateful for all the sacrifices they made for us. We had a great time. The best part was watching Britton be so enamored by everything. On the first day he was genuinely overwhelmed by all the sights and sounds. Every ride was a train and they were all Britton's trains. His favorites were Dumbo and Buzz Lightyear. He rode Dumbo at least 4 times and sobbed every time they took his feather away to start the ride. We got to see Carsland which was very cool. He loved seeing Lightning McQueen and Mater. He also very much enjoyed meeting all the characters. He would just giggle every time. His favorite was Minnie Mouse. He kissed her and laughed through the whole meeting. He tried to rip Mickey's nose off and hit him so I think he is a little jealous of Mickey and Minnie's relationship :) Here's some fun pics of our adventures.

Playing at Goofy's glad not to be in any lines!

After Disneyland we drove to Sacramento and spent some time just relaxing and visiting the train museum. Britton is still OBSESSED with trains and loves anything to do with trains. He loved walking around them, looking at them, and playing with them. He even got a few train souvenirs....he was in heaven. Here's a few shots of the museum

We had the best time and are so lucky to have such a good family. We are grateful for all that we have and recognize what an abundantly blessed life we live. It was so nice to be able to have a week off and just spend time together as a family. These were precious memories and moments that we will always be able to look back on. So thankful for my little family and all the love and support we receive. 

As an update to our efforts to increase our family, I will share that we are now seeing a fertility specialist at the U. We have not had any success the last few months, but he seems hopeful that things will work out. The medications they have me on are AWFUL and the side effects are equally miserable, but if it works I will be grateful. We keep praying that the Lord will bless us with another little one and have faith that things will work out in the Lord's time and in his way. 


  1. Looks like u guys had a lot of fun!! I'm jealous I want to go to Disneyland so bad. I'm hoping Ur blessed with another kids as well. Britton is so cute and so much fun to have in nursery. Keep updating:)

  2. Steph! Britton is such a stud!!! You have the cutest family! Sorry the medication is awful. I will be keeping you in my prayers. I know the stuff I was on was horrible but it's totally worth it. Love you!
