Road Trip, Celebration of 4

Scenic vista

We’ve taken a handful of day trips given that Maggie came along, but this was our first longer trip as a party of 4! We headed back down for a few days in our old LA hood and it felt so very good to get out of town. Now that the little one is much more and more a particular person every day, we’re getting our travel plans in order and we’re excited to be hitting the road a lot more.

The kids did wonderful (see here for all of our travel suggestions with children!) and we had been so satisfied to invest some time with our LA pals. I helped out at a dear friend’s baby shower and got to pat her little baby bump. We hit up Universal Studios for a handful of hours to see all of the Harry Potter stuff, but Henry was mainly excited to hug a Minion. He also got his quite very first barbershop haircut, which was the most adorable (we typically cut his hair at residence). We ate at some of our preferred Studio City spots, and I was even in a position to sneak away for a mani with a friend and some purchasing at Bonjour Fete, the cutest tiny new shop on Ventura.

I took my big camera but forgot a memory card, so these snaps are all old-school blog post style, straight out of my telephone. Which possibly is a small bit refreshing? Since this is genuinely what our trip looked like. Playgrounds, child snuggles, a little sunshine, and a lot of exciting. xoxo
