I don’t even know where to start with this post! We had SO much fun in California. I got to reconnect with college friends for the first time in years AND I got to meet their sweet babes for the first times! Our first day there, we met up with my friend Tiffany who has two sweet girls, Huntley, and baby Penelope, 6 weeks old. (She’s a fellow mama blogger, you should follow her! www.ahomewithwalls.com) It was lots of fun to get to see Blaire and Huntley play together. And it desperately makes me want to move to California! What I wouldn’t give to be able to have playdates with these lovely ladies on the reg. ;)
We were only at the aquarium there for about 45 minutes before the power randomly went out. There was an outage in all of the Downtown Long Beach. So crazy! We were able to see the outdoor exhibits and the seals. Luckily the seal enclosure was two stories tall, so it opened to the roof and had natural light. Soooo we spent the majority of our time at the aquarium watching the seals. Which worked out because they just happened to be super entertaining to toddlers.
Well… LOTS more pictures to come from our first family vacation. We had SO much fun. In the meantime, you can follow me on IG (@shopaholicandababy) to see more pictures. XO
