Easter weekend was spent with my little family in Anaheim, CA. We were invited by my brother and his kids to come with them on a little vacation for the week but due to T’s job and some military obligations that came up, we were only able to go for a few days but it was still so much fun. I have to give a major shout out to my husband for driving 5.5 hours to take me to the beach and Disneyland. He knew I was needing to get out and about and that was just what I needed. We were a little crazy and took Wilder who just hit 3 weeks old! But it was such a fun little vacay and we enjoyed our first trip together and Archer had fun with some of his cousins. Two kids isn’t that hard and it is getting a little easier each day. We really wanted to do something fun with Archer before our weekly drives to SLC to PCH start next week! Between those weekly 5 hour drives we aren’t going to want to travel much. On Friday we had a quick little Easter Egg hunt because the Easter bunny arrived that night and grandma and grandpa came down to watch Arch hunt for eggs in the backyard. The Easter bunny spoiled these cute boys with some much needed essentials, toys, and candy. I love holidays and having two kids makes it that much better!
Archer is at such a fun stage right now and obsessed with Humpty Dumpty. He was pretty stoked to be finding “humpties” all over the yard and kept singing “Humpty Dumpty’ the whole time. I am pretty obsessed with him.
After that we drove down to California and stayed in a town on the route when we all got too tired to finish off the drive. I was looking online at a store called Milky Mama to grab some food items that will help my milk supply increase for pumping for Wilder. Came to find out that they had a store that we were passing so I decided to just run in and grab some treats. They are actually really good and I wanted to eat the whole box of brownies and cookies in one sitting. Ill do more of a review in depth post all about pumping later this month. We then checked into our hotel and headed to hit a few stops. We decided to stop at what is called the Anaheim Packing District. It is a pinterest worthy spot and was full of good food and treats + some live music.
After grabbing lunch we took off to Seal Beach, CA (about 40 mins from Anaheim) and boy did it not disappoint. It wasn’t hardly packed at all, and had the cutest downtown feel with shops and everything.
I told T that I wanna plan a trip back just for that little town and stay in a beach house. Anyways, Arch wasn’t filling all the waves and it kind of scared him but we enjoyed playing on the side in the sand. Lil bro slept in his solly baby wrap most the time and Arch destroyed the sand castles that T built him. It was just a perfect day spent with my little family enjoying some sun and sand!
We went back to the hotel to meet up with my brothers family and my mom and we went to downtown Disney for the night. We just walked around and enjoyed the music and fun activities that they have down there.
Next day called for Disneyland. This is Archer’s third time going to Disney and Wilder’s first trip! We are Disney lovers in our family. We went and spent the day riding rides, eating good food and just having fun. Arch had a blast with his cousins and loved all the rides. He was seriously such a champ the whole day and had hardly any toddler tantrums! We had to make sure to get Wildie some cute mickey ears that he can grow into! We left a little early cause we had a long drive ahead but boy was one day enough for us. Archer was filthy dirty, I was so tired and T’s back was starting to hurt so we headed back home.
I love going on weekend adventures. It is more enjoyable to me then a week long vacation. We try to go on a fun weekend trip once a month but I know with the upcoming drives due to Wilder’s cleft and his doctors that we won’t be getting out near as much which makes me kinda sad. But we do have some fun trips planned this summer and rest of the year which I am excited for. I am so grateful to have my family in my life and so blessed to spend it with them all each year. I honestly cannot explain how grateful I am being able to hold and love Wilder and Archer and seeing them grow up. Being a mom is the best thing that has ever happened to me and it is all because of our heavenly father.
I hope everyone had a good Easter weekend and spent it with the ones you love.
