May GBOMB

+Andrew finished his MBA! I don't know who's more excited, him or me.
+We went to Disneyland with some of our family right at the beginning of the month. The kids had so much fun with their cousins and I had so much fun watching my children enjoy the Disney magic.
+Before we left AZ, I went to Coldstones with a bunch of my mama friends. We sat at Coldstones from 7-10:30 just talking and laughing. It was such a great last night in Arizona, but definitely made it harder to say goodbye to the friends I've made.
+We survived moving and made it to California all in one piece!
+We sold our house! Such a blessing that we were able to sell it so fast. I was really worried it would sit on the market for a while.
+We went to Disneyland a lot since moving to CA and it has been so fun. The kids love it (and Andrew and I might love it even more than them).

+Moving. It was so stressful. I'm glad it's over.
+The kids have gotten so many bumps and bruises since the move. I guess that's part of adjusting to a new house with stairs.
+Being away from all the family we lived near in AZ has been hard. We miss them.

+Moving has got me thinking about the future and how our lives will look in a few years. We know California is temporary, but that's really all we know. It's strange not to have a solid plan in place.
+I've been trying to figure out the best methods to diffuse Taylor's difficult days. I haven't found what works for him when dealing with his orneriness and his defiant moments. Anyone have any good parenting book recommendations?

Natural History Museum of Los Angeles

On Saturday, we decided to go on our first adventure here in California (besides our many trips to Disneyland). We went to the Natural History Museum in L.A. I always know that natural history museums will be a big hit with the kids because there are dinosaurs for Taylor and animals for Olive, plus they're interesting for Andrew and I. There were so many dinosaur skeletons and interesting displays. They had terrariums with tarantulas, scorpions, and the like. Taylor loved to find each creature hiding in the tank. We were able to catch the "Dinosaur Experience" show where there was a life-size dinosaur puppet. There was even outdoor areas for the kids to explore and play. Overall, it was a great museum. I think we might be back in the future.


Sunday night we decided to go for a walk on Seal Beach. Taylor loves the beach so he was in heaven. We watched people fish off the pier and looked for seashells until it was too cold for little Olive. Olive's face in this first set of pictures kills me.

Disneyland

After the beach on Monday, we spent Tuesday and Wednesday at Disneyland. Our new house is 20 minutes from Disneyland so we decided to bite the bullet and buy annual passes. This will probably be the first and last time we'll have the opportunity to own an annual pass and we're gonna get our money's worth. This initial trip proved that we'll get plenty of use out of it. We had the kids there for almost the entirety of the first day and they did great. We had so much fun (especially since some of the cousins were with us). I took around 100 photos on our beach day, but unfortunately only took a handful of photos (mostly on my phone) of our Disney days. Here are just a few of those photos to document our trip.
