UEA weekend

Chris had a business conference in California that coincided with UEA weekend. Since the boys were out of school we decided to head to California for our long weekend and meet up with Chris. I took the boys to Disney solo while Chris worked. As a family we spent a few days at the beach. We are driving home now. It was a great long weekend.

Grand Teton & Yellowstone

We are driving home from our road trip, no better time for a quick post now that we finally have cell service again.

We had an excellent time touring and hiking around the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National parks. Found a few animals and small adventures along the way. One highlight was the whitewater rafting trip. The boys loved it!!!

Vacations are good. 

Santa Monica

We have just finished the first leg of the Mallett Vacation and we are now headed to Jackson Hole, via Bear Lake.

Chris and I had a fabulous time in CA sans kids. We stayed at the Casa Del Mar, ate excellent food, sat beach and poolside, shopped and saw Phish at the Hollywood Bowl. It was a great pre-anniversary trip. 17 years!!!

Disneyland & California Adventure

Yesterday we spent the day at Disneyland. It was a blast and the lines weren't too bad. Nicholas loved it and so did the older boys however they preferred California Adventure (we went on Tuesday) for rides like tower of Terror and Cars land.

I snapped a bunch of big camera photos and a few phone photos. Here are just a few from the phone in case I don't get around to downloading my big camera photos for awhile.

Phish in Long Beach - happy anniversary

The Long Beach Phish show was fantastic and a nice anniversary treat for me and Chris. Happy 16 years!

We scored a show poster (yeah me #80 of 675), we walked the lot (same old) and enjoyed some great music, dancing and people watching.

Chris downloaded the show afterwards and has been reliving since.

We sat on the balcony Fishman side. The light show was amazing and we got a rare glimpse backstage as most of the bands family watched from below us. Apparently Justin Bieber was at the show too. Now we are cool.

This last shot I stole randomly from twitter of center stage so you got see the lights. Cool stuff. I can't give rights recognition but I think it's from Phish-ftr all other photos are from the trusty old phone.
