Camping!

Posted by Chelsea on Thursday Jun 9, 2011 Under Infancy

The weekend before Lucy and I left for California we went on our first Idaho camping trip.  We went about 67 miles away but it took a good 3 hours to get there because 50 miles of that looked like this:

Dirt road!!!

On the way up we saw a heard of deer!

Shaun thinks that big one is an elk.  I have no clue.

Our camp site was right by the river and incredibly remote.  We saw 4 other cars on the main road all weekend!

On Saturday we went on a beautiful hike.  I was 100% sure that I would die on the drive to get to the hike but thankfully we didn’t.  That road was scary!!!

I did get some beautiful pictures of flowers!

Lucy got over her fear of dogs this trip (there were 5!).  It was great.  Here she is hand feeding Mateo:

It was an awesome trip!  Numerous times while we were in CA, Lu asked to go camping-she loved it.  We’re off for another one in a few weeks!!!

Disneyland

We just got back from California. One of the reasons we went to visit my ‘rents was because it was my Mom’s birthday and she wanted to go to Disneyland.  Go to Disneyland we did!

We started on my Mom’s favorite ride, the Carousel!

I hate that this one is blurry Sad smile

Cousin Luke got in on the action too.  As did Mimi (my Mom) but all of my pictures of her did not turn out.

Next up was Dumbo!

Lu waiting to get on (one of my favorite pictures from the trip):

Beautiful Lucy

Luke and Papa were behind us:

Lu loved it!

Next up was my Mom’s other favorite ride “Small World”.  My Mom and Lu putting a penny in the water:

Then we went to Toontown to meet Mickey and Minnie!

Lucy, Mommy, Mickey

I will spare you the pictures of Minnie since Lu got sunscreen in her eyes moments before meeting her and was in tears Sad smile

Lu also REALLY wanted to drive a car!

Then it was the train all the way around the park!

Last was the Jungle Cruise but I didn’t get any pictures of that unfortunately.

Before leaving the park, Lu got a balloon, ears, and ice cream! She was a happy girl!

And TIRED girl!

Luke had a blast too.  He and Papa went on some of the more age appropriate rides and then when Papa needed a rest, his Mom (Aunt Sheri) went on others.  He had quite the day and got to do basically all he wanted to do.  Something that the youngest of 3 boys doesn’t get to do very often!

Luke and Sheri:

Mimi, Luke, and Papa:
