L.A Trip + Wedding

We had a whirlwind trip over the weekend for my cousin's wedding down in L.A; thanks be to God the weather was perfect (in my book at least.  A solid 75, haha) and the girls did pretty good being cooped up in their car seats for 5 hours (also a big shout-out to whoever developed portable DVD players, mothers everywhere are in your debt.)  We left Saturday and came back Monday.

We travel down the 101 for the scenic views and cooler temps and to stop by our favorite town ever: San Luis Obispo and to eat at Apple Farm, the cutest place ever.  This marks Brielana's first visit there and Kinsey's 4th.

Funny Story: We were looking around the gift shop and Kinsey says out of nowhere, "eww whats that smell?  Daddy, did you fart?!" The girl is a riot.

We arrive at my Uncle and Aunts house in Arcadia and relax in the hot tub.  It was the prefect way to unwind after sitting in the car for so long.

Sunday we got up and headed to Downtown Disney for a little excursion at World of Disney.  We fully took advantage of Valet parking after circling the two open lots for what felt like an hour.  Best $6 investment EVER.
The obligatory Micky treat
We return and get ready for the Wedding.  Of course my hair doesn't cooperate but no one really cared what I looked like anyway ;)  I also didn't get a good picture of us decked out in our fancy clothes, but what can you do?  And if you're curious, I ended up wearing Dress option A (the strapless dress just wasn't holding up, haha.)

The ceremony was lovely; my cousin cried when he saw his bride walk down the aisle and that was it for me.  I was undone.  They have been together as long as Brian and I so its nice to finally have them "make it official."  Brielana slept through the ceremony and cocktail hour and woke up just before dinner #perfecttiming.

Totally looks like a rum and coke, ha!  Obviously it's not.
The cocktail hour and reception was a blast, I'm not a dancer but Kinsey certainly was cutting a rug and Brielana was enjoying the food and people watching.  We kept the girls up a little past their bedtime and got into bed around 10:45p, not too shabby.

The next morning everyone slept in a bit and then we ended our mini vacation with another dip in the hot tub.

Going back home we powered our way through only stopping once and we lucked out again with great temperatures! And that was our trip!  It wasn't half as bad traveling with a 10 month old as I had imagined. And even though I would have liked to have stayed another day, someone was certainly glad to see us:
