We recently got back from an amazing vacation on the Disney Wonder cruise ship. We had such a good time and were completely spoiled by the Disney cast members on the ship. We were entertained and well fed for an entire week! We started our cruise in LA and went to Puerta Vallerta and Cabo for 2 days. I thought I would share some of my favorite pictures and memories from our trip.
The day before we boarded, we spent the day at Disneyland. Maggie was very excited to meet her favorite princess, Rapunzel.
Here is our ship (and my sun burnt daughter)!!

Here is my son on deck 9
I woke up early one morning before the sun came up and captured these photos…
My son relaxing in one of the giant port holes
Here are the kids enjoying the pool while watching Little Mermaid on the big screen..
The kids loved the “free” food on the ship…pizza anytime they wanted it!
One thing about cruising with Disney is there are lots of opportunities to meet the characters. My daughter LOVED it! We had a character breakfast one morning and all the characters stopped by our table for a meet and greet and pictures.
We cruised with some friends of ours and here is some pictures of the little girls waiting to meet the princesses wearing their princess outfits…
We played with dolphins and went on water slides in Puerta Vallerta…such a fun day in the sun!
We had fun shopping and lunching in Cabo!!
Pirate night was a highlight for us. We had fun dressing up, participating in a pre-dinner game show, watching the pirate show on deck after dinner and my daughter can’t stop talking about Mickey zip lining between the smoke stacks and watching the fireworks. It truly was a magical night!
My entire family enjoyed the shows each night. The Disney Dreams show is a must see. It was so good and very well done.
It was a sad day when we had to leave As they say on the ship…”Goodbye, ’til we meet again”

I had a busy fun October with my family. Between soccer games, flag football, dance classes, pumpkin patches and Halloween parties there was never a dull moment around here!
Here is one of my favorite pictures of my kids from Bishops Pumpkin Patch…
My daughter was Rapunzel for Halloween, I took her out one morning and took these pictures of her…
My son wasn’t to keen on pictures this year but I did manage to catch one of him in his Brian Wilson Halloween costume with his sister…

I thought I would post about our fun trip to the coast over Labor weekend. It was our last trip of the year now that school, soccer, basketball, flag football and dance are in full swing and we have hardly enough time to eat dinner together! Costanoa has been somewhere we have wanted to go for awhile and now that the kids are a little older, camping is a lot easier. Originally, we were supposed to go for 3 days, but my niece arrived a little early (more on that later) so we left a day late and spent two fun filled days on the coast with 2 other families. While we were there, we visited Pigeon Point and ate a yummy breakfast at Duarte’s, they are well known for their artichoke soup and it did not disappoint!
Our tent bungalow inside and out…now this is my kind of camping!!
The kids had a blast running around barefoot and carefree!
So many fun memories!!

It’s been a busy couple of weeks preparing for my daughters 4th birthday- princess style! Her party was this past weekend and she had so much fun having her girl friends from school over to our home. So many wonderful people and companies helped me out with her party (names and links at the bottom of this post). My husband and son worked so hard all week to get our backyard in shape…thank you!
Before we get to the party pictures, last month, while we were on vacation, I took Maggie’s 4 year portraits at the beach close to sunset. While we were out shopping that day, she saw this unicorn and HAD to have it. It made a great prop for her photo shoot!
and now her party pictures…
This party could not have been possible without my husband, my son, my mom, my friend Lisa and her daughter Payton and my friend Abby who designed the invitations…xoxo to you all!!

I hope you are all enjoying this busy time of year with your families! I thought I would share something fun we have been doing at our house….Elf on the Shelf! Have you heard of this fun tradition? My kids named their Elf Magson and have enjoyed waking up every morning to find him in a different spot! Here is a collection of pictures I put together of the different locations our elf has been found in. Where will we find him next
