Family Vacation {Life by Lens}

Ahh, family vacations.....it has been 3 years since we went on one, way too long.   This time, we were missing our oldest one, Anthony as he had to work :(     So while we had a great time and made terrific memories, it was a bit sad with him not with us. We headed off to Disneyland for a one day adventure of fun!  Then drove down to the San Diego area with a stop in Newport Beach and Birch Aquarium at Scripps on the way down.

This is a massive post (I am totally oversharing) so maybe grab a cup of coffee or tea and come back to see all of the images! :)

Do make sure you check out all of the photographers in the circle -- next up is my friend and one heck of an awesome photographer, Sally of SallyKate Photography, located in Dallas, Texas.

We start off with Disneys California Adventure.   We were there early....they let you into the park (to a certain point)
