Thanksgiving Celebrations

I haven’t blogged in forever so I’ve got a lot to cover.
Before we left for thanksgiving vacation one of my best friends Stefani hosted a Friendsgiving celebration. It was so much fun to enjoy a thanksgiving feast with close friends. Also, the decor and table setting were so cute!
For Thanksgiving vacation we spent a whole week at Marriott’s Newport Coast Villas with my family, aunt, uncle, cute cousins and my grandma and grandpa. It was amazing. 
Monday the whole gang went to DISNEYLAND. My mom, being the amazing planner that she is, planned to get us there early and somehow we were there 2 hours early! It was hilarious. We got there before the parking structure even opened. Let’s just say we were definitely the first in line and one of the first in the park. 
Being early was great though because we got so many rides in before all of the crowds came.  
I didn’t take enough pictures at Disneyland, we were all just having too much fun. 

We also played a lot of tennis during the week. It was so much fun to play and also to watch how pro my little brother has become. We’ve always been a tennis family.

We spent a lot of time at the beach boogie boarding and playing in the sand with the little ones. The big boys build this pyramid and sphinx. The kids thought it was pretty amazing but loved destroying it at the end of the day more than anything else. 
When we weren’t at the beach, we were usually at the pool. Scott and Emily were the chicken champions.
The pools were amazing with some pretty fantastic views. 
These kids are so much fun! I don’t get to see them very often and they always look so much bigger every time I do. I really wish we lived closer. They made the trip so much better. 
Thanksgiving day we took some family photos on the beach. They turned out pretty good considering the sun was burning our eyes haha. 

She is the cutest thing ever.

Basically it was a perfect week and I wish I could go back and do it all over again.

    I've always wanted to do a friendsgiving. It sounds like so much fun. Also your time in California looks like so much fun. I lived in Anaheim for a year and we seriously went to Disneyland 4 times that year. I miss being so close to it. Now we have to plan trips there months in advance. xo.
