Just over a week ago we went on a road trip to California with our friends Matt, Daireth and Tatum. Our daughter Lyla has pretty much been best friends with Tatum since they were born as they are only five weeks apart.
Lyla turned four in late November, Tatum’s birthday is later this month, so us parents decided their birthday present this year was a trip to Disneyland. For Lyla that’s the first time. Tatum went when she was teeny tiny, so she doesn’t remember much about it. Jina started a “hashtag” for the trip called “Road Trip to Cali”, which Lyla and Tatum kept screaming out from the backseat. We stopped at the beach on the first afternoon, and then woke up early to head to Disneyland the next day.
It was such a great trip for these two. They were incredibly awesome about the whole thing, they stood in line, they behaved, they had fun, they were just amazing. As a dad, this has to be one of those moments I will remember forever. Especially when Lyla overcame some of her fears and talked to all the princesses. I had tears in my eyes the entire time…so proud of her. And also to these kids, those princesses are REAL and so I think I kind of felt like it was real too.
Such an absolute blast…I had to share some photos from the trip. And by some, I mean A LOT. It’s like a wedding post. Hope you enjoy!
