Disney with Kingsley & grandma Juju

For my moms birthday we surprised her with a trip to Disneyland with just Kingsley & I. We flew out early one morning, went straight to Disneyland and then stayed over at the Marriott that night and came back the next evening. It seriously was the best trip!!
I made King this Prince Charming costume and he looked so stinking cute! People were constantly commenting on how awesome he looked.
We went at the perfect time when it wasn't very busy. We went on all the rides that Kingsley was tall enough for plus some we went on multiple times.
For some reason Kingsley's favorite ride ended up being the tea cups, so we went on it 3-4 times.
Love his happy face!
We went on Nemo for the first time, and it was pretty cool.
Kingsleys 2nd favorite ride was the jungle cruise. We went on it once in the morning, and once before we headed back to the hotel for the night.
Had fun riding on the Autopia ride for the first time.
We skipped Kingsley's nap to get as much disney time in as possible. We got a turkey leg, and corn on the cob for dinner while we watched the parade.
These are my favorite pictures of the day!
Love this picture of these two at Mickeys roller coaster.
Kingsley was so excited to meet Mickey Mouse, but got nervous when we finally got to him.
It was such a fun day, but King eventually crashed at night.
I made sure to get a dole whip on the way out. Yummm!
The next day we walked around downtown Disney. Kingsley loved the Lego store.
He also loved looking at all the animals in the Rainforest Cafe.
We watched a weird Fairy movie and then headed to the airport to head home. It was a perfect trip, I can't wait to go again. Kingsley was perfect, and I just love being with my mom.

Christmas 2014

Christmas with kids is just so fun and magical. Kingsley had been asking all month when Santa would come and was so excited for the morning of. Earl & Sandy came over to watch them open presents too. Hudson didn't really understand the concept but was pretty excited about the candy and treats.  Both boys were the most excited about the horse stable we got them. They also enjoyed the pug clothes & books.

After we opened presents we headed over to my moms to watch them open presents and eat breakfast. It was so perfect that it snowed for the first time in December because it just didn't feel like Christmas without snow.

I was feeling fairly sick most of the day since we had all passed along the flu :( We went over to the Kemp's for Sandy's traditional Christmas meal of Ham, funeral potatoes, peas, rolls and layered jello. It was delicious as usual!

The boys were very excited to receive shopping carts and Frozen Barbies.
Kingsley kept asking for a while when Santa was coming again ;)

San Felipe 2014

Jeremy needed to renew his Visa so in November 2014 we decided to take a little trip back to our old stomping grounds for a couple of days. We decided it would be too difficult to travel with Hudson as well so my parents luckily babysat him. The trip didn't start out well when they lost Kingsley's bag so we had to wait half of the day for it!
Luckily Kingsley was such a champ & made the trip super easy. He just watched movies on his ipad the whole 4 hour drive to San Felipe.
We had a fun trip & Kingsley honestly loved it. I have to be honest though I wasn't as happy to visit my old home as I thought it would be. Turns out the second we got there I felt lonely, bored, and anxious to leave. Honestly I think it brings back too many hard feelings from when we lived there. Although I love many things about San Felipe, and think it was such a good experience for us as newly weds, I doubt it will ever be one of my favorite places to visit. I also think I felt a little lost and sad without my Huddy. Surprisingly I missed him pretty badly, even though I'm positive it would have been a nightmare to travel with him.
The first morning I was excited to take Hudson out to the beach, but the tide was out too far so Kingsley got tired walking and didn't like getting all muddy. I was bummed he hated it. Luckily that afternoon the tide was coming in, making it the perfect place for him to play with sand and the shallow water! It really is the perfect beach for kids when the tide is in.
We ventured out to the new pool, which is really nice and modern though I actually still prefer the old pool with it's palm trees and bar & grill. Kingsley of course loved swimming.
Dad of course was more fun than me.
Of course Kingsley loved riding around in the golf cart and putting with his dad.
Kingsley would only eat rice, beans, and chips all week.
Kingsley had so much fun when we went in town for shrimp festival. We of course had to buy him the typical mexican poncho for a souvenir.
He also loved going on all of the shady carnival rides. :)
We made it out to the each one last time with daddy which was fun.
Kingsley loved when Jeremy would help him jump waves!
Love his face of pure joy.
We came back up to San Diego and got to go to the childrens museum with Samantha and Rachelle.
The trip wore out this little buddy.
