On June 5 we flew out with Mark's parents, Val & Benda, to meet John, Tracy & kids in Southern California for a few days of fun in the sun. We stayed at the Marriott Hotel right next toe the convention center and about two blocks from Disneyland. It was a beautiful hotel and very convenient to all we wanted to do. We got in some pool time then enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Bubba Gumps. The next day we headed to Disneyland for two full days of fun. It was not to busy there and got to ride several rides many times. It was so much fun to be with John, Tracy, Aaron, Aidan, and Addie and Mark's parents. We loved riding rides like Splash Mountain, Tower of Terror, Screaming, Souring Over California, Space Mountain, Indiana Jones ride, and many others. We rode Tower of Terror and Splash Mountain four times in a row. Needless to say after four time on Splash Mountain we were drenched. We also got to ride one of my favorites Space Mountain two times in a row. We ate at some great restaurants and were able to have a great birthday dinner for Aidan at PF Chang's. We enjoyed our time together and were glad we was able to spend time together as a family. It was great to spend some time with Aaron before he leaves for his mission to Jackson, Mississippi in August.

John, Aidan, Addie, Tracy & Aaron. It was so much fun to be with them. We are sure glad that they were nice enough to invite us to join with them.
