I can't believe that I'm only now just getting the chance to blog about our first family trip to LA. I knew a while back that I was going to have to go to LA to be the best man at one of my good friend's wedding. I wasn't sure how well the girls would handle the 5-hour flight out of DC since this would be officially the longest flight they have taken but they both did amazingly well. We Airbnb'd a beautiful LA property right in West Hollywood where the girls could have a bedroom to themselves, my mother-in-law would have her own room and Sarah and I would have our own room too. We had planned out a week of events before having to attend the wedding on the weekend. I love Disney. I knew that we definitely had to take advantage of being so close to Disneyland to take the girls there. Then there was exploring LA and doing the Long Beach Aquarium. This one of the most difficult trips we have then to date since Sarah & I had our own events that we had to attend while we were in LA and we needed to lean on Sarah's mom to watch them in our absence. Also, sleeping in a new location is always hard for the girls but we knew going into this despite all the challenges it was something we knew we wanted to experience together as a family. It was a success and great learning experience and a trip that we will look back on for years to come! All these photos were taken with a combination of my Leica Q, Canon 5D MK3 and of course my trusty iPhone.
