Disneyland and More!

So I packed up the kids and headed down toward L.A. to visit Larry's sister, Misty and Husband, Charles and family, and visiting family from Texas, Larry's youngest sister Stormy, her husband Lenny and their 5 adopted children, Stormy (16), Destiny (7), Kimberly (4), Damion (6), and Cezar (4), and Larry's Mom and her husband, and cousin, Corin....so lets count for a second...that's 18 people in a 900 sq. ft. house. Yes the Mexican was coming out of the Hockmans, but as a true Mexican and good friend pointed out, we had room for at least two more! So our weekend started early with a scheduled trip to the "Happiest Place on Earth", Disneyland. Larry unfortunately could not go to this event with us as he had to work that day. Here are some pics of that. I apologize for the long post of pics, but by all means read on it gets better, or worse if you were in my shoes. Getting ready to ride Peter Pan! The Dumbo ride. Left to right...Honey, Zane, Damion, Destiny, Cezar, Kimberly. The Carousel, Honey's favorite ride. Mamma Sandy, she's as crazy as her granddaughter. Honey and Zane on the sickening Tea Cups. Me and Honey on a boat ride that I have never been on before. "Its a small world after all, Its a small world after all." They should really use that ride as a method of torture. Mickey's House! Mason...maybe the movies are in your future. We waited in line forever to get a private picture with Mickey Mouse and then Honey did not like him very much. Honey's first roller coaster ride at ToonTown with Misty. And of course she loved it! I couldn't go, pregnant people were not allowed. The Buzzlightyear ride. I got to level 4!!! Best ride ever! Honey fell asleep half way through the day! Thanks Charles for carrying her, she's getting heavy! Me and Honey on the "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride. No she was not scared at all. We opened the park and we closed the park, it was a long day but Mason was so proud that he stayed up past midnight. Honey is asleep of course. So here's the "More"... Long story short, Misty and I were in a car accident on Saturday. We were rear ended pretty hard. Luckily a police man witnessed the crash and we had instant medical help. The paramedics were worried about the baby because the seat belt tightened very hard against my belly and how hard we hit our heads against the head rest. So, for precautionary measures I was strapped down and loaded up into an ambulance and taken to the hospital to have me and the baby checked out by sonogram. Everything looked great and the baby is doing fine. Misty and I are a little sore and pretty shaken up but nothing out of normal, thank goodness. We were very blessed in many ways, and thankfully we did not have any other children with us in the car. Poor Larry, he was very worried about his Mamma and Baby, and did not like the fact that this crash involved his wife. He has a new appriciation for people who are involved in an accident and say's he will be a little more compassionate from now on. We count our blessings and are thankful that this wasn't anything serious. Other than that, it was a wonderful weekend.

Disneyland! SO FUN! I'm SO JEALOUS! And you look great! Maybe it's the tie die hiding your belly :) And SO glad that you're okay after the accident. Always a little freaky- I HATE being in accidents. And getting to ride in an ambulance- WOW- would have freaked me out. Glad you're OK :) Good story to tell the kids though right? You know that when this one is older the other ones will say- you're that way because of your "in womb" accident :) Kids are so kind like that you know :) LOVE YOU!!!
