we’re baaacckkkk!!!!

Disney attendants are forced to be polite when you try all their hats on…
but Sam did buy this one! We all loved “Pirates of the Caribbean” ride and went on it two times.
Grandpa Lee, practicing for Josiah driving in 3 short years…see how he is reaching for that steering wheel?!!

Caleb was the last of only 20 kids to be chosen (out of 150 at least!) to be in Disney’s Jedi Training Academy. Here he is using his newly taught light saber skills to teach Darth Maul that old Yoda truth “size doesn’t matter”.

The Anaheim area supposedly rains only 7-8 times per year…2008 should have only 4 more days of rain, by our count. Despite chilly weather and crowded theme parks-it was a really amazing vacation. Here’s a helpful tip. When planning, make sure to check your dates for both Winter AND Spring break…we went at one of the busiest times of the year! But we had a wonderful time, and neither crowds nor chills could stop us from enjoying every day, every meal, every ride with Grandma and Grandpa. Of course, Caleb’s favorite was Legoland where he was practically weepingin rapturous joy. Sam, our little thrill seeker, was happy to get to go on every ride he wanted with both Mom and Dad, because faithful Grandma was taking care of his less enthusiastic baby brother. Josiah overcame years of nervous tension to try out more than 5 major roller coasters, including the infamous California Screamin’…here are a bunch of photos to tell the story.
