Disneyland Family Vacation

What an amazing vacation we had in California for Labor Day weekend. We left on Saturday and returned on Wednesday night. 27 members of the Hardy clan (My Mom's side of the family) joined us for the trip which added to the fun & experience. The main reason for us all adventuring down there was the Disneyland Half Marathon which 18 of us ran. Disney does such a great job with their marathons and of course running with my mom we took a lot of great photos with Disney characters. After we had all finished the half marathon my Mom surprised us with WICKED tickets for that evening in LA, I think that this play was the highlight of the trip. WICKED was so good it gave me chills, Aaron also loved it and we can't wait to see it again in April at the Capital Theatre in Salt Lake. It was such a wonderful surprise and made running a half marathon soooo worth it! We spent the next 2 days playing in Disneyland from morning when the park opened till close. Aaron and I had so much fun and loved all the memories that we had from our family trip. Here are some highlight of our trip…….

Oh my heck, that looks like my dream vacation - Disneyland and Wicked. You just made me really jealous!

Yes for sure we would love a Saw party!! When, where? We are game baby.... Also, we need to go to some haunted houses this Halloween. Even though we just vacationed together we didn't get to play together. Lets make up for lost time.

What a fun trip! I think it's so awsome that you all run and love it! I also think it's a bit crazy, but still fun!

How fun! Looks like you had a great time and congrats on running the half marathon!

I'm so glad you guys had a great time on your vacation! I thought of you while you were gone and got a little jealous. Not about the running (yuck!) but about Disneyland itself. Your pics are great! My favorite is the one with the army guy from Toy Story.
