Big Bear Pics

We went to Big Bear a few weeks ago but I just now realized I never posted some of the good pics we got. Here's my FAVORITE pic!I left my camera at home so these images were from Bri's camera. Here are some funny pics of Bri and Elizabeth goofing off.
And Bri taking silly ones of Ben too.Eating ice cream in the village. For the first time, we rode the ski lift up to the top of the mountain and had lunch. It was sooo cool. We'd like to do it again in the snow. Papa dropped his expensive jacket while on the ski lift. After the ride he and daddy went on a lil hike to find it. A few minutes and a lot of sweat later, they got it back.

I'm 7 Now!

You're looking at a 7 year old in this pic!
Emily turned 7 at the beginning of September and she wanted a Taylor Swift party and so that's what we did. We also had a "movies in the park" theme that we went with.Daddy brought the movie projector down from the movie room and put it in the front yard. The kids watched Hannah Montana the Movie since that's the only movie I could think of that Taylor Swift plays in. We also rented a hot dog machine and cotton candy machine. Ben got his first taste of that stuff. He had a fit when he realized he ate it all. Daddy brought his popcorn machine outside and we had a blast! The older girls put makeup on the younger ones.Nana was a server, too.Happy Birthday Beautiful, Emily!

I've been a slacker lately when it comes to blogging, but the good news is I am about 2 weeks away from completing all my required real estate classes in order to take the exam. We've also recently celebrated Emily's 7th birthday and snuck in a weekend to Big Bear. But today's post is about Disneyland! We started our day eating at the Rainforest Cafe in downtown disney. This was the first time to Disneyland for both Megan and Ben. Matthew has been there kinda recently with his Aunt Jane and Uncle Joseph. We had a great time and got to visit Uncle Peter, oops I mean Uncle Mikey. Megan is obsessed with Princess Tiana from Princess and the Frog (I think I secretly am too, just because she sort of represents some cultural roots for my fam) so we BOTH enjoyed this one on one time with her. And who doesn't love Tink?!
This is from the very realistic Nemo ride. Very cool.

And this last pic is just because you know me when it comes to anything houses or house design. This is on one of the walls at Dland right near the entrance. It is my inspiration pic of what Miguel and I are planning on doing on an empty stone wall in our front yard. Except, mine will be better because it will be a climbing rose vine. White roses. Lately, I've fallen in love with white roses.
