Fairyland in CA

I don’t remember going to Fairyland when I was a little girl, but my mom does. She told me about a picture she has of her dad (Ray) holding her up high to touch Pinnochio’s nose at Fairyland. So, we have started going there everytime I’m in California. The kids love it.

I didn’t have a lot of time in northern California, only three days. Wednesday was spent at mom’s house, just easy going and making yams for Thanksgiving and seeing Breaking Dawn part two for a date night, then Thursday was Thanksgiving and Friday we went to Fairyland and went to Fenton’s (I got a black and tan …. super yummy ice cream). I rarely pulled my camera out, which is a shame, but at Fairyland I had it out and thankfully got a lot of good pictures of the fam. Here they are:

These 4 were fast friends: Noah, Liam, Taylor and Dominic. Noah told me Dom and Taylor were his favorite cousins. He followed it up with Liam as his third favorite cousin :) Liam said Luca was his favorite, then changed his mind and said Truan was. When I asked why Truan, he said, “cuz he has da most wegos (legos)”.

Everyone walking on the path to Fairyland. I odn;t know what gang signs Noah learned and is using …. crazy, cuz we were only there in Oakland for a few hours :)

Luca and Aria. Both stunningly gorgeous, right?


Mina, Mom, Aria (pregnant) and Bethany.

Kris (Mina’s hubby) and Devyn Ray (aka Jellybean) on the old lady’s shoe.

The Donner Party (Family … that donner party joke never gets old).

Most of the cousins on the dragon. Noah, Taylor, Livi, Jellybean, Enzo, Liam, Truan, Dom, Jack in Jonathan’s arms … and that crazy guy is Walter :)

OK, I apologize in advance for the amount of pictures I have following. They are all of children on a grassy hill rolling/sliding down. But seriously, the kids stayed on this hill longer than any other part of Fairyland we went to. We kept joking about how we could’ve saved the expense and just taken the kids to a park somewhere with a grassy hill. But hands down, the best part of the grassy hill was Jellybean. She sat and slid down the hill at a sanil’s pace and she looked absolutely thrilled the whole time. She even put her hands up in the air, as if she were riding a roller coaster. It was hilarious because she was sliding so slowly it was almost inperceptible to the human eye.

Noah and Truan

Jelly, just taking a breather.


Liam’s face is hilarious.

Aunt Mema taking a stab at it.

“Hands in the air, Eezma”. The little belly showing, hands up and slowly sliding down the hill had every parent at the bottom of the hill in stitches.

One can never have enough “breathers”

This was Aria posing for me to practice lighting with my camera …. but Aria’s face turned out pretty good huh?

This was taken on the orange train car with me, hence, the orange-ish hue. These three loved each other.
