Disneyland 2008

Hello Family and Friends,

It has been several months since I have made a post for Alyssa's blog site. Hmmm, I wonder how many excuses I can come up with, but none would matter or be valid.

We just recently went to Disneyland. We took advantage of the Public Safety special that Disneyland was offering to all law enforcement and fire personel. What a heck of a savings this was for our family. We also took Alyssa's cousing Austin. We enjoyed our time there. I think we walked about ten miles both of our days there.

This was Alyssa's first time to Disneyland. Her favorite part of the trip was when she got to meet the princesses and Ariel from the little mermaid. It was so fun to watch her interact with them. She also got to meet Minnie Mouse, Pooh Bear, Tigger, Eyore, Woody and Jesse (From ToyStory).

Hello Everyone,
I do apologize for the long delay in posting any new pictures or information. I attached some pictures yesterday. Alyssa started pre-school last week. Mom bought her a Dora the Explorer backpack which Alyssa loves. Alyssa loves her preschool and is doing very well. The teachers all say that she is a joy to have there.
The picture of my patrol unit, didn't come out to well. Alyssa is in the driver's seat. She loves "Daddy's work car" and always wants to get in it. Anytime we are driving around town and if she see any police car she will yell and point, "Daddy's work car."
I hope to keep up better on the blog and will post some more updated blogs here soon.

I love this picture..

Sorry that I have not posted an update for awhile. Seems like there is never enough time in a day. The pictures I attached are from Easter. Alyssa could not wait for the easter bunny to come visit. At night prior to falling asleep, she would ask her mom, "Is the easter bunny coming?" Mom would reassure that he was coming but it wouldn't be for awhile. The night before easter, we told Alyssa that the easter bunny would be coming to her house tomorrow to hide easter eggs. She responded only with a warm smile PRICELESS!!!!
On easter sunday we all went to church. My grandparents were here visiting from Orange County and they went with us along with Julie's grandpa. It was nice. We when we got home, we put Alyssa down for her nap and when she woke up the easter bunny had come and left her an easter basket. He also hid a bunch of eggs in the back yard. My brother and his family came over. Alyssa and her cousin Brooke hunted for easter eggs. It was cute watching them. Alyssa would see another egg and scream "ANOTHER ONE!!" She had such fun, it brought so much joy to Julie and I to see her so excited and happy. I often wonder what her life in China would have been like. I thank God everyday that I will never know that answer because she is with us. After the easter egg hunt, Julie and I prepared a nice dinner for our family. It was a great day.
I hope you all enjoy the pictures and leave a post.

Elephant Seals

Over the weekend, we drove to San Simeon, which is about a half hour from our house and visit the Elephant Seals. They only come to our area twice a year. This time of the year they come here give birth to their pups. Many of the Elephant seal population have already left, however there were still quite a few around. Alyssa loved the seals and wanted to "Pet" them. This was a great family day and to have this marine life so close is really awesome.

Tristan and Alyssa

Our good friends Roger and Gwenna came to visit from Texas. We sure miss having them close by. These are some cute pictures of Alyssa with their son Tristan. I think Alyssa has a crush on Tristan. Don't worry everyone, I am in control LOL....We sure had a good visit with the Morganson clan. Their youngest boy Logan is just so cute. I can't believe how fast time goes by. Both boys are growing up so fast, as is Alyssa. Enjoy....
