We're back!!!

Although I don't know if I ever mentioned that we were leaving.

But we did. For 10 days to LA, Las Vegas, and Palm Springs.

It was a phenomenal trip and we had so much fun as a little family.

We arrived in LA and hit up the beach for Hadley's first trip to the ocean! She LOVED everything about it. From the sand to the water, and even chasing the seagulls. She would run away from the waves as they came in and then chase them as they went out. Inevitably a few caught her and she was soaked by the time we left.

We went to my favorite beach.....Venice Beach. It is quintesential California. Muscle Beach (outdoor gym), bikini clad roller bladers, hippies, a skate park, $2 giant slices of pizza, and street performers. Hadley ate the pizza, danced along with the street performers, talked to some locals, watched the skateboarders - this girl is a Californian at heart!

Then the next day we went to Disneyland.....literally one of my favorite places on earth. I might shed a tear or two reminiscing about it because that is how much fun we had. No joke, it was one of the best days of my life. All three of us couldn't have loved it more. Hadley's favorite ride was "It's a Small World", much to the distaste of Daddy's ears. We went on rides, ate yummy food, saw some princesses, watched a few parades, and stayed for the magical fireworks at the end of the night. While we were sitting waiting for the fireworks to begin, Hadley made friends with all those around us. She held hands with a little boy and gave unrelenting hugs to a couple cute girls. I guess the joy of Disneyland wore off on her. It was the cutest.

Totally tuckered by the end of the day:

Then we hit up Vegas where I attended photography training for the whole 2 days we were there so Hadley and Daddy spent some quality daddy-daughter time on the strip....haha what an oxymoron!! We didn't care for Vegas much. It really is the land of sin. Enough said.
So I only have 2 pictures - a spent Hadley and an aquarium viewing Hadley:

For the second half of our trip we went to Palm Springs and stayed at Family's house. It was the bomb-diggity. Yup, that's right. All we did was shop and swim. Each day was 30 degrees (celcius) so it was perrrrrfect for lazing by the pool.


Wonderful memories were made and great times were had.
Then we came home to lots of snow and -15 degree weather.

I wish I could go back.
