To start off the week with a trip to Disneyland with your parents just can’t be beat (you may have seen some of the instagram pics that my Dad took for me, how cute is he?). I had so much fun playing around Orange County with my parents, and Christian was even able to join us on Saturday which was a treat. I sent them on their way to LA earlier this week, and I plan to join them today for a weekend in LA while Christian stays back to work.
Do any of you live far away from your parents and when they come to visit you’re totally surprised at what does and doesn’t impress them? I took my parents to some of our favorite spots, thinking I already knew what the “wow” factor would be. It turns out they were most impressed with a really tall eucalyptus tree down the street (like… who cares?), discovering the world’s largest wind chime at Fashion Island and a hipster ice cream place that bragged on the fact that its cows slept on memory foam mattresses (I live in Southern California… this is real life). Of course we had sunsets and Disney fireworks every night (you can see them from the town where I live), but I was like… really!? You think the beet hummus from Trader Joe’s is more impressive than this Laguna Beach sunset? Hhhhmmmm… “parents just don’t understand.”
So after my Dad performed his first-ever photobomb (he was proud), my parents told me I was wearing them out with all the activities I had planned and that on Sunday they wanted to take it easy at my house, get a good night’s sleep before our Disney adventure (we walked over 10 miles) and “take my blog pictures.” I started laughing and it only made them more determined. SO, this coming week you’re going to see photos by Dr. Williams, and I’m telling you – they’re not half bad! I told my Dad he needed to tell Christian, “I don’t know what you complain about… this isn’t that hard.” But of course he didn’t. #brocode
What are you guys doing this weekend? And please tell me funny stories about your parents – I know I’m not the only one who spends 15 minutes trying to explain to my them what “ride or die” means. Thanks for reading! XO –
