California- David and Jessie's Wedding


We wanted to finish our summer off with a BANG so 4 days after getting back to Boston we flew to LA for David, Mike's brothers wedding. We had a great time and the wedding was really fun, but man the 3 hour time change was killer!!! We hit up the beach a few times, visited friends and family. Our very favorite part was taking Kate to Disneyland. My cousin Jill is amazing and she watched Cole for us so we just had Kate. It was seriously magically! She loved everything about it, especially the princess's. It was definitely the highlight of the trip!!!!



These first pictures are from the wedding dinner in Mike's sister Julie's backyard. We were put to work when we got there and somehow everything turned out beautiful.

Mike's mom made all the little girls dresses they turned out amazing




Seriously the hottest couple. Could Jessie be any more beautiful







The bad news is I was having a very bad hair day...

Mike's sibling... one good looking family



The reception was at the Botanical Gardens in Palos Verde. They had a ring ceremony before










The next day we went and checked out the Manhattan Beach, Jessie's family stopping grounds

Disneyland and California Adventure

Kates favorite rides were Dumbo, tea cups and Arial. It was a super hot day, but fortunately it wasn't very crowded





Kate's favorite part was eating lunch with the Princess's at Arial's Grotto in California Adventure. For some reason she calls it Arial's Witsom (I have no clue what a witsom is). Kate got to put on her dress up and she loved every minute of it.  Mike about had a heart attack when he found out how much it was to eat there, they really get you good, but looking back we would do it again. She is still talking about it.

















When I made the reservation my have told them it was her birthday hoping they would do something fun. I wanted to get the most bang for my buck! She totally played along and now tells everyone that she had her birthday in Disneyland!


After dinner we went to the Aladdin musical, which she loved and watched the parade. 
Someone gave us there Disney balloon that Kate wouldn't let go of, While walking to the car she feel asleep, which if you know Kate that NEVER happens. 
I had to take a picture of our  caddie that the rental car company upgraded us too. Everyone was teasing Mike about it all weekend. 
We actually got our discounted Disney tickets from some sketchy Disney Dave. This is Mike returning the tickets at the end of the day a few blocks away from Disney.  What we do to save a few bucks!
Don't get mugged! 
We had such a great time, but are so excited to be home and enjoy Boston this fall!
