California Vacation: Part Three

If you missed part one & two of our California Vacation click HERE and HERE.

Monday, we headed out to the Irvine Spectrum (with 4 kids!) to do some shopping.  We wound up spending the majority of our time there in Dave & Busters letting the kids play video games.  We did, however, get to pop into Cotton On Kids where Gigi purchased the big girls matching outfits.  They looked so cute that we had to take some pictures.

The last day of our trip we hired a babysitter (don’t judge) for a couple of hours so that we could go out downtown for a little adult time.

California Vacation: Part Two

If you missed the first part of our trip to Huntington Beach…visit here.

Saturday, we hit up the beach.  This was Ella’s first real beach experience and both kids had a blast jumping waves, collecting sea shells, and playing in the sand!

On Sunday we traveled out to Temecula to visit Court’s best friend and his family.  It was so much fun watching our kids play together.

We didn’t bring swimsuits…so Cooper was kind enough to share his with Hudson & Ella.

Erin @ Blue-Eyed Bride - I love these pictures, Jenny. It looks like y’all had such a great time and made tons of sweet memories. xo

California Vacation: Part One

A few weeks ago we traveled to Huntington Beach, California to visit my husband’s side of the family and to meet our baby niece, Sawyer.  We had so much fun relaxing, playing with cousins, enjoying the warm weather, and of course going to Disneyland!

Our first day my mother-in-law and I took my kids and my niece, Harper, to the Discovery Science Center while my hubby and his Dad went golfing.

Afterward, we had my favorite lunch Wahoo’s Fish Tacos.  When we lived in California I frequented Wahoo’s multiple times a week.  So, obviously it’s one of my must-haves when visiting.

These kids were having a blast making silly faces at me on the ride home.  They were all in heaven this week getting to play with one another so much.

The next day we visited Disneyland.  We spent the entire day there (12 hours!) and surprisingly the kids were fantastic.  Hudson and Ella both were so brave….riding things like Space Mountain, the Hollywood Tower of Terror, and Splash Mountain.  I sent Gigi, Papa, and Aunt Devon on those rides as I am terrified of heights.

I didn’t a ton of photos this day as we were getting on and off so many rides.  We were shocked that we the lines were short enough that we got to ride almost double the rides we normally do.

And a couple from Disneyland that I shared on Instagram.  The last picture?  Oh yeah…that’s just my husband on the Hollywood Tower of Terror.  We laughed about this picture for days.
