Disney pumpkins



Okay, so we’ve made another trip to Disneyland. Despite appearances on this blog, we really aren’t hard-core Disney fans. In fact, there’s quite a bit about the company and many of the movies that we don’t love, but the park really is one of our favorite places. We have season passes and bring our lunches so it’s not terribly expensive, and the kids naturally love it. The longest we’re ever there is about 5 hours and I get a nice dinner out of it, so I love it too! Dan’s not completely sold yet but we don’t always drag him along, and he’s coming around to the idea that it’s more about just watching the kids.
One of my favorite parts is the “park” part of Disneyland park. The landscaping is always impeccably maintained and the creativity of men with God’s creation is quite remarkable. This time I was most impressed with the fall flowers and pumpkin carving. They have the cleanest petting zoo you’ve ever seen at the back of the park, and Thursday it was decorated with pumpkins carved into Disney characters. Pretty amazing! Here are a couple of examples, as well as the obligatory photos of my adorable kids and nephew!

YOU MAKE MY DAY. IT'S SO NICE SEEING THE KIDS AND THE FUN THEY HAVE. I'M 62 YEARS YOUNG AND IF DISNEY WERE CLOSER I'D BE THERE EVERYDAY WITH MY PICNIC LUNCH. THANKS FOR SHARING YOUR FAMILY.

LOVE, COUSIN GAIL

Jason and I were at Disneyland in April of 06. I rode every roller coaster there (for the first time in my life). It was great and exhilarating to face my fears like that. I love reading your blog and watching your sweet baby girl from Ninh Thuan grow up!

Disneyland is definately one of future destinations! Once Noah gets a little bit bigger. We will probably need you to give us the grand tour. :) And, WOW those pumpkins were great.

I put that same picture of all the kids on my facebook page and Kaite Poier could not believe how exactly you and Alyssa look alike! and by the way mom, you're in Italy, I don't really think that we're having more fun than you!
