We're Back!

Just wanted to pop in and say hi!

Every week, Kristen Duke is encouraging moms to get out from behind the camera and into pictures. No matter how imperfect the setting, your makeup, weight, or outfit is, you want your kids to see and remember you actually enjoying family time, and not just being that person behind the lens, never fully present in the moment. I made sure Doug took pictures of me and Mia on our short family vacation to sunny California.

We had lots of fun on our first trip to Disneyland!
{Although this castle seems tiny compared to what I remember of Disneyworld.}

 There were rides to go on...

Her favorite being the carousel...three times...

Anxiously waiting to meet Mickey...

But the 3 day vacation was also tiring - no one sleeps when you have a sick baby, one king size bed and princesses to see!

I'll be back with a DIY tutorial on our ears and a full trip recap once we get back into the swing of things.

Have a great week!

SO MUCH FUN! Glad you guys were able to get away and spend time as a family! Great reminder to get into pictures. It's easy to miss lots of time behind the camera during the child bearing years . . . :)
