Norah + Disneyland

We recently got home from a nice long vacation.  We started out in Phoenix, visiting my sweet little niece, Norah.  She just turned one and Oliver had a blast with her (and a wee bit of jealousy).
one of my favorite pics of the whole trip!  the first night we arrived oliver showed norah how to play on the ipad.
a night out at my one of my favorite restaurants in phx
oliver actually took this photo with my phone and i love it!
sweet girl
Norah likes to dance, so Ollie decided to join in!
We miss you already Norah!  I HATE that we're not closer... it just isn't fair.  :(

The next part of our trip was at Disneyland!  Oliver has been a few times but this was definitely the funnest!  Now that he is taller we got to do a lot more rides!  The best part though was meeting all of the characters.
Duffy Bear (Mickey's teddy bear) was Oliver's favorite!
Donald was very silly... he shook his tail at Ollie!
And, we finished off the trip at Legoland and San Diego.
Oliver was afraid of the beach, no idea why??  He did have fun collecting sea shells in the sand though and took one for each of his classmates at school.  His stuffed dog, Mackie, also had fun making sand angels!
Such a great vacation!  I was happy to spot some vintage elements at Disney and I will share them in another post soon!
