Our California Vacation // Disneyland Fun

We are still recovering from a very fun (and exhausting) vacation over here.  Holy laundry is all I have to say.  I've realized that right before and right after a vacation really sucks for the mom.  So much packing and organizing before you leave and then so much laundry when you get home!  But totally worth it because we had an absolute BLAST!

Eric and I both have family in southern California so we spent the first part of our trip visiting relatives.  We stayed at my grandparents house which the girls loved because they have a big pool.  If you follow us on Instagram you probably saw Phayre in her flamingo floatie.  I kind of died it was so cute :).  We spent our days swimming, going on treasure hunts (walks around the block), and blowing bubbles on the back patio.  Oh and mimosas, so many mimosas!

For the last half of our trip, we headed to Disneyland!  Let me start by saying it was so. much. fun.  And totally magical watching the girls experience it, but it was also so so so exhausting.  Our mornings started around 6:30am and ended around 9pm after the fireworks show.  Good thing it's the happiest place on earth or lack of sleep may have made us pretty cranky.  I've come to the conclusion that Disneyland is very much like Vegas.  You can stay for about three days maximum and then you're pretty much too tired (or hungover) to function.  But you have SO much fun that it's totally worth it!

While in Disneyland we celebrated my birthday and we got to meet two of my favorite Instagram friends, Erin from @helloerinv and Karissa from @baby_jules_boutique!  They are both girl moms times two so I pretty much loved them before I ever met them.  But I am telling you... they are even better in person!!

We went to dinner at Ariel's Grotto and got to meet lots of princesses, caught as many parades as we could, and watched the fireworks each night.  Pure magic to a little almost three year old.  I'm working on a post with some Disneyland tips, but for now I thought I'd just share some photos from our vacation!

Airplane fun!

You can see how much Sloan wanted her picture taken on the trip...

Disneyland kicked their bums.

I hope you enjoyed some photos from our trip!  We had such a blast, we're already planning our trip for next year!  




  1. How fun! Where is your swimsuit from (the black with lace trim)?? I have been looking for that swimsuit everywhere!

  2. What a magical trip - we cannot wait to take our girl but being so far away, we will have to wait a bit longer! x

  3. This place has the most perfect environment, great food, tasty wings, lots of good beer, but best of all - probably the best wait staff in all of country. Visited the Chicago event venues last month again, had another great time.
