Palm Springs + California Bucket List

We went to Palm Springs yesterday with the little people and it was so stunning! California was definitely showing off for us. I have loved palm trees for as long as I can remember and I could literally live there like the Croods. It took us an hour to drive, stopped at Chick-fil-A and we were driving through colorful Palm Springs! Eric and I talked about going back without kids so we can hike further in the desert ... mini vacation for sure! Growing up in Arizona I never really took advantage of the desert (its too hot) and have always been a beach girl. That's why I love California, the beach, desert and mountains a car trip away! When we hiked down to the palm trees it was breathtaking and instantly took 54604605 pictures and spent some time eating grapes, goldfish and taking pictures of Dinosaur Happy (Adie's baby). She kept telling her to say cheese and every new area we were she had to have pictures with her. Dinosaur Happy is part of the family so ... we took pictures. Which I am going to frame that one of her sitting on the little stump and put it in her room, she will die! 

California Bucket List

1. Hollywood || Eric talks about how he loves LA/Hollywood and I cannot wait to go. Shop, eat and take pictures of the stars on the walk. 
2. Disneyland || Adie has been talking about seeing the Princess' Castle and I cannot wait to take her and her mind will be blown. She will LOVE every minute and I cannot wait to capture her happiness.
