California...Here We Come

To start our traveling adventures, we took a road trip to California.  Michael had meetings with a supplier so we decided to make a weekend out of it.  We drove over on Friday.
Laila did amazing chilling in her car seat.
We went to Huntington Beach, walked the Pier and had gelato.

 Michael did some boogie boarding... (he's out there somewhere)

While I tried to hide the Little Lady in the shade. (That bikini girl had no idea about beach etiquette!)

Adelaide liked her first beach trip...

We made a stop at these beautiful grounds...

Michael hung the camera from a tree for this self timer family portrait..

We then went on some great hikes. Michael handled the sand bag speed bumps gracefully.

It is a gorgeous area...

We also stopped at a darling little cafe that gave out flowers to all the mothers! *Cute!  (I love this picture because it looks like Laila's waving)

Laila also enjoyed her very first boat ride!

We went on a whale watching trip and did not see any whales.  And with the crazy waves near the end, Michael and I were very grateful we were able to not toss our cookies like some other poor, unfortunate souls on board that day.  It still was very picturesque and a fun weekend get away.


  1. That's too bad you didn't see any whales. And I definitely would have been one of the poor sick souls on the boat. I do not handle sea-sickness well! I love all your pictures.

  2. Looks so fun! I need a vacation like that :) you forgot to blog about the other part of California and that awesome "mall" you went to!

  3. smiling picture! so adorable! btw you should upload your photos to xlarge so i don't have to click on every single one to see laila's face. just a suggestion.
