Mother's Day and Disneyland

Our little family spends time together because we don't live close to any other family, but we actually haven't had a family vacation with just our little family of four EVER.  We usually spend all Luke's time off of work going to visit our family (which we love and is important as well) but I think that fun time together as a little family is important.  After some long months of moving, Luke being gone every other week and some parenting difficulties I was in desperate need of a vacationi!

Luke was out of town in Arizona, and was due to get back on Saturday and told me on Friday that he had planned a trip for us in Disneyland the next week. We would leave on Sunday (Mother's Day)!  It was just what I needed to re-charge and for all of us to bond and be happy together.  Tracen was awesome, and Rai slept better than he ever has (or has yet to sleep since coming home).  I think the quality time for Tracen and Luke was what the two of them needed, and just being together without tears was what I needed. 

I am hoping to make a little fun video of everything, but in case that never happens, here are some pictures. 

 * Note: Tracen HATES taking pictures, which means that most of the pictures of him he is purposely not looking, or purposely not smiling which means the following pictures result.
I may have gotten upset after trying to take this pictures because I just wanted one good picture.
Pretty sure the picture that the Disney people took at least had Tracen looking. 

Goofy's kitchen for dinner, Rai was not a fan of all the characters.

A surprise trip to Disneyland!! That's the best trip ever! :) There's nothing like a trip to Disney to get some amazing quality time as a family and recharge.
Even though Tracen isn't looking in the pictures, he still is super cute.
