The Happiest Place on Earth!

Shortly after returning from our honeymoon, Logan and I had the opportunity to go on another awesome vacation with my family and some really good family friends. After what seemed like the longest 10+ hours in a car ever, we finally made it our destination of....

The Newport Coast Villas!

As always, pictures never seem to do some things justice so you'll have to take my word for it--this resort is amazing! The villas are big so the whole family can spread out and they have killer views of the ocean! Here's a few more pictures where we stayed:

Each "room" had 2 bedrooms, a nice kitchen, a big family room and balcony!

The swimming pools had an amazing view of the ocean! You can imagine why we spent so much time at the pool.

On top of hanging out on the beach and at the pool just about every day, we had a week full of so many fun activities! Logan and I have started a fun tradition of going to as many temples as we can outside of Utah and we were lucky enough to be staying less than 10 minutes away from the Newport Temple. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to do a session but we did take a picture so I can count it, right?!

Even though we would have been completely happy hanging out on the beach all day, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to spend a couple days at the "Happiest Place on Earth"! It had been a long time since our entire family was in Disneyland together and 4 of our nephews had never been before so we had a blast! Goofy's Kitchen is where we started it all off and the kids loved it. They were able to meet a bunch of the characters and seemed to be in heaven. Here's a few of the pictures I was able to get:

Everybody but one person (David) was able to be there!

Will & Dale

Mady & Klary were in heaven even if they were a bit shy!

Even the boys were awed by the princesses!

And of course they didn't pass up the chance to dance!

Breakfast was delicious (thank you mom and dad!) and definitely worth the early morning wake up call to make our reservation but there's nothing like that first moment you get into the park!

The kids were so excited!
Disneyland is 10x better when you're with the little ones!

For some reason I seriously failed with my camera duties from here on out but don't let the lack of pictures fool you--we definitely had such a ball! Disneyland had a couple new rides and the World of Color in California Adventure never disappoints! To top it all off, we had a great time swimming and hanging around the campfire with the friends we went with. I hope we can make this a yearly tradition!

Next stop: Bear Lake with the Cash!
