Family Pictures

We had family pictures taken a couple of weeks ago. This was my birthday present and we had a fantastic photographer that works here at UOP do the session. Jessica Casper was amazing and did so well engaging the girls and taking the best candid photos. I was so happy to be out of a portrait studio and in the open where the girls could do their thing. Our last portrait sitting was basically a nightmare so this worked so much better. I think we will use Jessica from now on. Here are my favorites:

California Vacation 2011

This summer we did another family trip to California. We stay in Carlsbad for 3 days and then made our way up to Disneyland for 5 days. The girls were so happy to go on their "big bye bye" as they called it. My dad prepped them with videos about the beach and visiting Disneyland and they were very excited. Riley was very impressed with the beach and keeps asking us to go back to the beach just about every day.
We had a nice time in the Carlsbad area and picked the perfect beach day. We got to eat fish and chips in the harbor and show the girls some of our family traditions. We then headed up to Disneyland for 5 days at the happiest place on earth. This was the girls' 3rd trip to Disneyland and this time they understood where they were. They had a blast visiting Mikey and Minnie's house and riding all the rides. Addison loved the play park in California Adventure and Riley loved hugging all the characters.
Papa planned a character breakfast with Goofy and the girls were excited to see the characters while they sampled all the great food.
The trip was amazing and the girls have many memories to look back on!
