There’s no place most festive around our area than Disneyland. Now that Baby H is older, we are able to spend time at disney for longer hours (currently about 4-5 hours before he poops out and needs a long nap). We braved the crowds and spent an evening at disney on a weeknight and enjoyed […]

The holiday season is upon us. Everything we do has new meaning these days. I find myself saying to Chris, “this is going to be the last holidays where it is just going to be the two of us” or “next year, we’ll be pushing the stroller past these Christmas decorations”. It really helps me […]

With a growing little pumpkin inside my belly, I avoided our annual trip to haunted houses and scary mazes, and opted for a more kid friendly (more calm) environment. It was our first time attending Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland and it did not […]
