Lance's family's visit

Last week Lance's family came to visit from Utah. Mom, Dad, Lane, Lyman, Kelli, Taylor and new baby Grafton all made the drive down I-15.

We all went to Disneyland. This is the family on the hottest-ride-of-the-century--It's A Small World. It's good for the girls.

Sloane was stoked on all the little figurines.

We waited in line at Mickey's house to get a picture with the famous mouse. They were playing clips of old Mickey Mouse cartoons so Taylor and Sloane were hooked.

We finally got there and the whole experience was a little underwhelming. Sloane didn't act very excited and Taylor was a little hesitant to approach the mouse.

Then again, Sloane always has a bit of a suspicious look on her face--especially when looking at dubious mice.
We took a reprieve from the punishing heat outside.

Sloane got a little tired.

But she perked up when we got to the Buzz Lightyear ride. This is one of her favorite characters recently.

She was more than willing to pose for the camera, but we still couldn't get her to smile.

The whole family sans Grace--she's taking the picture.

Our little family.

Buzz Lightyear is a killer ride. They give you these little lazer blasters and you go through the ride shooting all the bad guys and accumulating points. It's fun because you get to compete with your family. This is a picture of Lyman losing the competition.

Sloane liked to shoot the aliens too.

This pic is on the way out. Disneyland's Main Street is a pretty classic scene at night. We couldn't get a very good pic, though.

We hung out with Verna-Grayce, Ester, Honore, and Hester at Hermosa Beach. This beach is really fun. There are no crowds and the water is nice and clean. Sloane and Taylor love the beach and playing the sand.

Sun bathing, working on her tan.

They are cute in their sun hats.

The girls like the water too. Sloane is a little apprehensive, but she'll go in if she is with someone.

Such fun pics! Sloane is absolutely adorable, and I can't believe how big she is (I suppose it has been a couple of years, though)! Glad you guys are enjoying SoCal - if you ever make it up north be sure to look us up :)
