so, we were off to cali...and by WE i mean all of my sibs, bro in law and sis in law, and both of my parents. (sad but BP couldn't make it) and oh, i forgot to mention, we toured around in a 15 passenger VAN. while classy and fancy might NOT have been the top this vacation we did manage to have some dyer-style FUN. first we visited Disney's California Adventure...oh, there are loads of great rides there. but only one stands out in my mind as i recall our weekend...THE TOWER OF TERROR. let's just say that it made Duff sweat and upon exiting the ride my mom (AKA Gangelina Ganiston) exclaimed "i would rather have cancer than ride that awful ride!" and she was serious. i tried to get some pictures while the being dropped 40 feet at about 500 miles per hour. but you get the idea..
