Hulk Crash

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend. I'm totally pouting because I don't want it to end. We had a great time visiting with friends and eating BBQ. Devin had time off work so much needed quality time with my man was had. We topped it all off by taking Elijah to see the Avengers. His hulk obsession has grown.

I pre-screened the flick first so I actually watched it twice this weekend, and yes, I thought it was good enough to fork out the cash for another round.

Magical Memories

I hope my dear, sweet boy remembers this special birthday trip for years to come. I think I'll put together a scrapbook of photos and goodies for him so there is no way he will forget. You can see by his face that meeting Minnie Mouse was a total treat. Anytime I asked him "what do you want to do now?" his answer was "Go find Minnie Mouse."  hee hee.
I have so many photos of him with the favorite characters maybe a collage for his bedroom wall?

Disneyland trips are not meant for relaxing, but for every painful step and hour spent in line you are rewarded with a smile and squeal that makes it all worth while.

I've been in recovery mode from this trip for 3 days!  Between the horrible bug I caught and the lack of sleep and aching feet I needed a rest from my vacation.  Feeling better now and ready to get back into Wedding prep.  Happy 5th birthday Elijah!  Mommy loves you.

Disneyland Instagram

We got home late last night/early this morning. What an amazing time. Disneyland is even more magical when seeing it through the eyes of your child. We celebrated his 5th birthday on Friday, well really the whole trip was one big celebration. I'm not going to lie, 5 days in Disneyland kicked my butt. I'm taking today to recover and upload the 1,000 photos I took. Don't worry I won't post them all. ;)

I've joined the instagram bandwagon and I am loving it. Here are my instagrams from the trip.

I seriously need a pedicure now.

Disneyland here we come!

Miss me? I've been MIA with much on my plate this week and will continue to be so as we leave tomorrow morning for E's first trip to see Mickey!  It'll be a birthday to remember for my sweet lil man. I look forward to sharing photo's and stories when we get back.
I'm over packed and ready to go!
Have a great week!

Roaming around the texture filled downtown Sac with a charming graduate snapping photos,
yeah it was a pretty fun way to spend my Friday eve. 
And bonus! Look at that smile!



He even busted out the cap n gown, downtown, in front of traffic. 
He pretty much won my heart at that point. 
Very cool young man in my book!

Congratulations Damion! 
And thanks Mama Marcie for letting me capture this special time in your (one of your many) boys life!

A family that bikes together...

We dusted off the adult bikes so the kids could get some ride time in on Saturday. It was so fun! I expect to spend a lot of time on the bike trails this summer.

My little accident prone Ciena.  No broken bones but some sore ribs and a handlebar full of turf.


Lovely day!  Just what the doctor ordered to start off this crazy busy month.
