Last weekend was a BLAST! I absolutely LOVE being with my family and I am so glad that we all got to go to Disneyland together one last time before Scotty leaves on his mission. Who knows where everyone will be when he gets back and our lives are even crazier?? Anyway, here's the weekend in pictures. My mom has the better ones, so maybe I'll add some after I get back from Vancouver this weekend.

Cassie, Katie and I at breakfast Thursday morning. We got to go upstairs to the concierge lounge for food whenever we wanted. Our room keys let us in. It was great!

My weirdo brothers... Boy do I love them! :)

Waiting to get on Screamin' for the first time. This is definitely one of my favorite rides! I scream the WHOLE time because I'm having so much fun!!

Waiting for the parents at some point or another... They were probably buying pins for Jody.

Courtney and Cassie. She is growing up so fast! :(

Me and the kiddos on Grizzly River Run. Ready to get wet!!

Oh Jody... Such a 12-year-old boy!

Jody and Cassie were such troopers!! This Disneyland trip was definitely very different from any of the previous ones where we all went because Jody and Cassie are finally old enough/big enough to enjoy all the "big kid rides". We drug them all over those parks, day and night. They never complained a bit and kept right up with us! It was great to see them transitioning into becoming friends with the rest of us kids. The older 4 of us have become a lot closer in the last couple years as we have grown up and it is so fun! Anyway, my dad and I were buying Churros one night. It seriously took like 5 minutes. Cassie fell asleep in this position while she was waiting! Poor thing! But then we all went on Splash Mountain, the last ride of the night. It was great!

This was Dad's idea and we all loved it! I love my siblings!!

Happy Birthday Scotty!! Mom bought him this cute hat that was definitely made for little children, but he wore it like a champ and got happy birthday wishes from total strangers all day long.

One day at about 11 am, there was no one in line for the Grizzly River Run. We love that ride when all 8 of us are there because we take up an entire raft. So we decided to go on it. Twice. We got SOAKED! For some reason, I don't look all that wet in this picture... I think my back got it way worse. Anyway, Katie and I figured out how to dry out.

2 years ago, they wouldn't have been caught dead in the same car on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Aww, how precious. :)

Cassie and I realized when we got home that our hair was OUT OF CONTROL! Haha, that's what you get for staying in Disneyland for 16 hours straight! We didn't get back to the hotel on our last night there until nearly 2 am. But it was totally worth it!!

Our matching Minnie t-shirts. (Cassie and Nikki got theirs shortly after we took this picture.) And please don't mind my ridiculous looking hair. It doesn't air dry well. Obviously.

None of you siblings look anything alike! But it looks like you had so much fun. Maybe one day I will get to go to Disneyland for the first time!

Um, you DO look alike. I have to disagree with Mandee. Also, Mand, Court, anyone, Brent and I are going to Disneyland Nov 15-19 so....come along if you can! Although, I don't think it's as fun if you didn't grow up loving it. Courtney, I love your family, this was such a fun post to read. Did Eric go? Was he the one taking all the pics or what? Hope you're having a good time, I really want to get together soon! Yay for volleyball!
