A girl and her camera

There once was a girl who bought a new camera. Two years later, she finally started to figure out how to use it without the comfort of an automatic setting. Said girl went to California and attempted to take loads of pictures in hopes to get better at this camera business. Girl dropped her camera and appeared to have lost almost all of the vacation pictures. She. was. pissed. and sad. and scared. but mostly pissed. Girl seeks professional help (camera help. not therapy help). One trip to the Camera Company and a couple of weeks cured the injured memory card (camera was diagnosed with an "angry autofocus" but otherwise ok). Girl has not had time to edit pictures but will provide a sample of some fun things encountered in Cali. Girl will now stop talking in third person. Enjoy.

Last week Tyson turned 4. FOUR! 
By some great coincidence, we happened to be in California celebrating Jason's great great aunt's 100th birthday so of course we went to Disney. 
Let me just say that flying with two small children is not for the weak. In fact, I think spoon feeding pureed foods to an infant on your lap during turbulence should be considered an olympic sport. That along with carrying said children + luggage+ carseats (that were wrapped in garbage bags and duct tape...cuz we're classy like that). Even with all of the stress of traveling, I am so glad we went. It was so much fun to celebrate 100th birthday with a gaggle of family and even more fun to celebrate a 4th birthday with Mickey Mouse. 
Tyson was so excited to meet Mickey that he decided to dress like him. The second he put the hat and gloves on he started telling everyone we walked past that he was in fact, Mickey and kept giving everyone he saw a high five. It. Was. Awesome. 

Nolan thought this was hilarious.
