Grandma Pat spoils her grandchildren, especially the girls. Check out this collection that has been acquired over the past few years. Good thing I'm not in charge, because Sophie would have be holding one of the Target knock-offs instead!

If any of you have ever been to Disneyland you've probably seen the Star Wars show where they ask for child volunteers from the audience to get trained as Jedi's (or maybe we're just Star Wars nerds!). Families crowd in far in advance to get good seats. There are always tons of kids dying to become Jedi's. All the Payne grandchildren were lined up ready to be picked and guess who got chosen...Maxwell AND Sophie. Maxwell was completely into it. Here he is above showing that he already has the force. On the other hand, Sophie was so so tired it looked as though she were about to fall asleep standing up during the performance. Each child gets to have a one-on-one light saber duel with Darth Maul or Darth Vader, and both of our jedi's were big hits with crowd...we were laughing with them not at them!

It's too bad that the teacups are such a naseau causing ride because they sure are a beautiful sight. I think they make the best picture backdrop because the colors are so bright and vivid.

Grandpa was such a good sport. He went on nearly every ride, with a few minor exceptions, even though he didn't really like almost any of them. I love seeing his face in many of the pictures. He is either terrified or nervously anticipating! Sophie had absolutely no fear on any ride, including Tower of Terror. She is smiling in every picture, which is quite comical next to Grandpa sometimes.
What Mom doesn't have the urge to dress her husband and son in matching outfits? Oh, is that only me? They were such good sports about it.
Grandma Pat was a dream to have around. She held Capri many many times for us. Capri was also quite a dream. She is such a happy little baby. We drug her around each day until midnight. She would take little catnaps in the stroller, but mostly her eyes were wide open in awe at all the crazy people!
