Last week we had a very fun trip with Leslie's family at Disneyland (3 days) and Knott's Berry Farm (1 day).  It was a blast.  I think Brooke really enjoyed the trip.  She had her moments but for the most part she enjoyed it.  We enjoyed having the family together.
Great family!

Tower of Terror!  I think this was Brian's first time.

Cousin bonding time!

Brooke's not quite sure if she likes Minnie, but Leslie sure is cute!

Sisters with the Mad Hatter.

Isn't she adorable?

Sorry to Mark for covering his face with my hand.
Brooke's favorite ride was "It's a Small World".  We had to go on it twice because she loved it so much!  Here are some pics of us waiting in line and going on the ride.

A big thanks goes out to Leslie's parents, who made the trip possible and to Julie, who is a Disney fanatic and did most of the planning so that we could all make the most of our time there.


Since we moved into our new place we have been working on a lot of little fix it projects.  Once the place was re-carpeted and painted it looked really nice.  The only major project left has been to refinish the cabinets (bathrooms and kitchen).  So over the past couple of weeks I've been working on the cabinets in one of the bathrooms.  Leslie's cousin David and his wife Kira had done it to their cabinets and we decided to copy them.  Here are some pics . . .


This blog shows a tutorial on how to do it.
