the Happiest Place on Earth: The Beach

Crew turns three this week and we seized the opportunity to take a trip to Disneyland in celebration.

I had my reservations about him being old enough - there were a lot of rides that he wouldn't be tall enough for, many movies we have yet to see (thus characters he wouldn't know) and so on. That being said, I was wrong. You heard me Cole, I was wrong, and you were right. :)

We had a blast and it was a vacation I will always remember.

So here we go... 

After a long car ride from Utah, our first stop was a trip to Huntington Beach. We were first-timers who took the first parking spot we could find, which made for a very long walk to the pier. But after all the time in the car, it was just what the doctor ordered.

Crew had no fear with the water and spent the better part of two hours feeding and chasing the birds, sprinting towards the waves and then running back the minute he got his feet wet. Gorgeous, amazing, words can't do it justice. 

Picking up shells became searching for treasure and gold doubloons. Ten points to the parents out there who can identify the Disney Jr. show reference there. 

I'm still finding sand in some of our shoes, but what a beautiful day at the beach!
