Cali With the Lewis Clan

We took a trip to Southern California with my family last week and we had a great time! The whole gang was there except for Lex. Boo. We sure missed her! We packed a lot in our five days there and it was such a fun trip! I took about four million pictures and tried not to put too many on the blog, but did not totally succeed. Here we go....

Angel's Game

Our seats were at the tippy top of the stadium, but we actually had a pretty cool view of everything.

Grandpa, Grandma, and Little Miss Maeve

Hot dogs and...

Cotton Candy! Very healthy eating.
The next day was our first Disneyland day. We all had a blast! Bri especially loved the roller coaster in Toon Town that she was only tall enough to go on because she had on her Cinderella high healed glass slippers. She didn't really care for the slow storybook rides you would think a two year old would like. She liked the ones that went fast and tickled her tummy. We've got a little thrill seeker on our hands.

I think Maeve really likes the jungle cruise!

Pretty girl

Bri loved the long as we could get one with pink on it. The one time we couldn't was tragic. Gotta love public toddler meltdowns. :)

The Dumbo ride was a total hit. Bri was cracking up the whole time! Luckily she got the pink one!

This is Bri waiting to meet the princesses. She has her princess shirt, glass slippers, princess purse, and princess figurines. For those of you who didn't know, our little Brighton is princess obsessed right now! Everything is princess...and I mean everything! If she is eating a hot dog, it is princess hot dog, if she is running on the grass, it is princess grass, etc. The line to meet the princesses was forever long. Luckily she had these little ones to keep her entertained.

Brighton was a little shy when she actually got to meet the princesses. Maybe she was just a little starstruck.

Unlike her dad and her grandpa, Brighton loved the teacups! The faster, the better. She threw those little arms up in the air and laughed her little, blond head off. So cute.

Girls night out! The three of us went to see Wicked one night. It was amazing! We all absolutely loved it! If you haven't seen it, you should! It was so fun! The boys and my mom had fun at a Dodger's game one night too.

Sea World
We went to Sea World one day. It was great! We had such a fun day. I was a little lazy with my camera so we don't have many pics. Those shows were amazing though. It's incredible what they can train animals to do!

A great picture...I know

Newport Beach
The beach was great! Bri was a little weary of the water at first, so she spent lots of time playing in the sand. By the end of the day though, she was having a blast splashing around in the water.

So we had a great trip to Cali! We had so much fun with family and Southern California is such a great spot for kids. Thanks for all of the fun Lewis fam!

I LOVE those pictures of Brighton at Disneyland. The ones of her and the princesses are priceless and I LOVED being with you Ash, if only for a few minutes. SPencer finally decided on where we're going this summer and it looks like we're going to great grandpa's in Idaho- no portland. Maybe next time when it's my turn. As you would say "boo hoo"

What a great trip! I'm so glad you all enjoyed yourselves. And I'm jealous that you got to see Wicked! Someday.....

Now that looked like one serious party. That close up of Brighton on the carousel in her hat is a beautiful picture. --in her princess hat on her princess horse.

Was that an awesome SYTYCD? finale or what? ...even if Katee should have won.

I found your blog through stephs blog, and was excited to get to see what you are up to. You have a cute family and you are still as beautiful as ever! You look like you're doing great. Disneyland looked like a blast!

Ah, your pix made me so jealous! What a fun vacay! Bri looks absolutely adorable in that peach hat and you look gorgeous! I still LOVE your bangs (or fringe as we called it in beauty school:) ), btw.
