Once upon a time...

Ages and ages ago, before New Year's, before Christmas, even before Thanksgiving, Robby and I took a vacation and spent a few days in Oceanside.
Those few days came and went quickly, so before I jump too far into 2014, I wanted to highlight them.
  1. We got to spend nearly a whole day with John and Kelly and their family. With both of our lives being busy and full, we don't get to see our dear friends as often as we we would like. This was a great day, easy and fun. 
  2. We went to Disneyland (twice) and purchased annual passes, which means we'll be going again soon! To be honest, D-land was a little busier than I handle well, but it was still fun. Tower of Terror was a favorite, as usual, and the Christmas Fireworks Show is still the best fireworks show I've ever seen.
  3. We awoke to the brightest sparkliest mornings ever. I don't remember seeing water sparkle the way it did those days. Unbelievable.
  4. We saw glorious sunsets every night from our hotel room. 
  5. We ate lots of yummy beach food: fish and chips, clam chowder in a bread bowl, onion rings, and pizza. Beach food is not healthy, in case you were wondering.
  6. We shopped. A lot. That was fun.
  7. We bought nearly all our Christmas presents. That was fun, too.
  8. We slept in, took walks, lounged around, dressed up, and hung out.
  9. We walked on the pier, which was just outside our hotel.
  10. We breathed in the salt water air and left the windows open at night. 



  1. Where did that beautiful day go that we spent together? So when are you going to visit me again? I'm having a hard time thinking about letting your birthday pass without seeing you, but the thought of driving all three kids up is just horrifying...We'll have to figure something out before it Summer again!

    1. We'll figure out something for sure! Yeah, I think taking a road trip with all the kids sounds a bit overwhelming. We have D-land passes now, so we have to head back down there sometime!

  2. That photo of you and Kelly looks like it's out of a magazine! So beautiful- great lighting :)

    1. Thanks, Steph! Wish we were leaning on something a bit prettier than my car...
