California 2015!!

So hi guys! Remember how we went to California a couple of weeks ago?? I'm just now getting the chance to post about it!! We had such a great time!! The weather was a little chillier & a little more rainy than we expected it to be, but hey, we're from Seattle, so it's all good. ;-)

The kids always do really well with travel (for the most part). They really actually enjoy the whole experience of going to the airport, taking the shuttle, getting on the airplane... etc. They just think every part of it is so cool, which definitely makes it easier for us. We spent 5 days in Ladera Ranch with my SIL and her family, which is a little over an hour south of Los Angeles. Honestly, it felt like we were just there, and I guess we kinda were only a few months ago ;-). But it was so nice to be back down there again so soon. My boys love their cousins so much and have a blast with them.

We spent some time at the T Street Beach in San Clemente, where Easton ran around in his diaper because I forgot to bring his swim trunks. Whoops. We also visited some local parks, including Northwest Open Space, which was gorgeous!! We made homemade pizza's, did some grilling, and my SIL made the best homemade cinnamon rolls I've ever had in my life. My mouth is watering just thinking about them right now!

We also spent a lot of time in the spa, especially Easton really enjoyed just floating around in his little star tube, can't say that I blame him! Philip and I had a date night out to this fabulous Cajun restaurant, and the kids played dress-up (where Bennett may or may not have really enjoyed dressing up like a princess!)

We also spend a day at Disney's California Adventure!! (which I'll post about later!) :-)  

We just had such an amazing time on vacation to see family. I wish we didn't have to hop a plane to go see them, but hopefully we'll get another chance to go down and visit again soon!!

I miss SoCal so much!! Northern California is great, but the beaches are just too darn cold for me!

This post makes me miss Cali!!
That pic of your son all dressed up reminds me of when I used to dress up my younger brother. Haha. Nothing better then childhood memories to brighten a day :)
