Vacation Snapshots

It's hard to believe that we only have 5 days left here in Oregon with our families - the time has certainly flown by, but we've had so much fun and made enough memories to last us until we get the chance to come back again.  Here are just a few pictures from my vacation thus far:

California lemons from my Aunt's backyard

Jumping waves on Huntington Beach with my kids
(had to borrow my husband's t-shirt halfway through the day because even with SPF 50, I was getting burned!)

Amazingly realistic backdrop for the "Cars" ride at Disneyland (which we waited in a 4-hour-long line to go on)

Exploring the Lan Su Chinese Garden on a sunny morning
{Wearing: StyleMint tee, I Heart Ronson skirt (last seen here), Target belt, Dolce Vita sandals (here or similar for less here), Tinseltown Denim Couture jacket (via TJ Maxx), c/o JewelIQ necklace (last seen here), Vintage bracelets & ring, gifted Ray Ban sunnies}

Creative photo display centerpieces at my husband's grandma's 100th birthday celebration

The coolest boardwalk in downtown Portland
{Wearing: H&M top, Mossimo jeans (similar here), MRKT wedges, c/o JewelIQ necklace, Banana Republic & Vintage bracelets}

One of the most peaceful places on earth - the front yard of my parent's 1900's farmhouse

Looks like a great vacation. I live only 10 minutes away from Disneyland but have yet to visit Cars Land - I am so afraid of the lines.

Love the photo jars! This is a great idea for any parties!

I can totally understand how the front yard at your parent's farmhouse is one of the most peaceful places on Earth! That swing in front of the hydrangeas with the porch in the background is what yard dreams are made off! Thanks for sharing!
