"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

We finally saw Mickey!

On Tuesday we finally made it to Disneyland. A friend in my ward goes all the time and called me yesterday morning and said she was going and wanted us to go too. We had so much fun. Right when we got there alot of the characters were out so we waited in line for all of them. I was so suprised that Hollie went up to them. I knew Trevor would be good but I was little worried about Hollie. She did fine. They huged them and gave them five. Then we walked around a little. Went on the rockets, Alice in Wonderland, then we sat down and ate lunch and the kids threw pennies in the fountain and made wishes. Then went on Roger Rabbit (kinda scary for the kids), walked around toon town a little and then hopped the train back to the front gate. Buy the time we got on the freeway all the kids were passed out. We had a fun day!. I have a pass now and up to go anytime. anyone wanna go? Let me know.

Holy you have a million new posts since I last checked! Your hair turned out super cute. I love it, I love the color too!

Glad you had such a good time at Disneyland. I love that place. Luke is still to little for it-he has a very hard time waiting in line. We should go some time. Maybe after summer, when it's not so stinking hot and all our days aren't blacked out =)
