Just getting in those city scoots while we can. Too bad our favorite @milkjarcookies is closed on Mondays - we could have used a bit of sugar after our 1.5 mile scoot + stroll πŸ›΄πŸ’¨ #calvins3rdyear #chandrasfavoritesguide #microkickboard #miraclemile #fredricksgoodbyetour

"There are friendships imprinted in our hearts that will never be diminished by time or distance." These women. I'll carry them and their sweet families in my heart forever. They are just the best tribe a girl could ask for, and even though I know I'll always have their support and friendship, the hardest part of this move for me is knowing they'll be far away. I'm so incredibly grateful for this sisterhood right here (just missing one, who lucky for me is already in Ohio!) Love you all so much @kimberjo13 @punambean @amandawannear @theplantbasedmom__monica @salvagemaria plus @manipatel1101 ❀️ Palm Springs, 2018!

Our last trip to Disneyland as locals -- such a special day! To watch Charlie tell Calvin about all of the rides and point out everything fun -- he wanted to take him on "Pirates Go To The Caribbean" the most. And Calvin did it. And Goofy's roller coaster. He was a great sport to go along with everything Charlie wanted to introduce him to. Especially when all he really cared about was seeing Pluto and Tow Mater, neither of which happened. When Charlie first went to Disneyland he rode no rides. He wouldn't even ride Goofy's roller coaster until he was 5. And now he rides pretty much everything, like a boss. I, on the other hand, refuse anything resembling a real roller coaster. And I can't spin anymore in my old age 😳🀒 We ate churros and dole whips and cotton candy. We said yes when they asked for something from the store (one thing each). We didn't care that they didn't nap all day. When they whined or wouldn't sit to eat a meal, we looked around and say every table of parents with young children having the same struggle and threatening to leave just like we were and we laughed. It wasn't as unbearably hot as I expected or as unbearably crowded as I thought it would be. All in all, we had a pretty spectacular day! πŸ™Œ
I can't wait to share more from the day, but for now swipe right for a little peek at our first ever visit to @Disneyland and our last visit for a while.
Thanks again for having us #Disneyland -- a truly magical and memory making day in our last weeks living in California πŸ’–

This baby wins Disney-goer of the day, hands down. Never a complaint, happy to eat whatever pizza crust scraps or random things are shoved his way. No fits when he only gets a bite of his brother's ice cream. No complaints about lines or heat. Happy to ride whatever we bring him on. Making friends with everyone. Even took a little Disney disco nap in the sling πŸ™Œ he's seriously THE BEST.

The gang's all here! We've been to @disneyland so many times over the last 5 years, but never have we ever strategized and planned so much. We used to be "wing it" kind of visitors, but that was when we only had one kid and had annual passes. Now with three, and two toddlers to manage plus a big boy who wants to ride everything, we definitely needed to plan. I'll be sharing lots in my stories and then a blog post of tips after our move. Thanks for having us @disneyland & @californiaadventurepark ❀️

Everyone loves em some Quincy. Including Quincy πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜β˜ΊοΈπŸ˜‚But really, I can't blame him. All I wanna do is smooch that face too. ❀️

Who's got their Friday face on? 😁 We're headed to Disneyland and some friends are throwing us a farewell party. So there will probably be lots of 😒. At both places 🀣 (Two toddlers + so πŸ”₯ = 🍺) What's on your agenda for the weekend?

15 days left to lay in our front yard and gaze up at our big palm tree. I'll miss the palm tree. But I won't miss the tiny yard and the busy street just out of frame πŸ˜‰ #calvinandquincy #fredricksgoodbyetour #thehappynow #boysofsummer #LACAtoOHIO

In honor of date night tonight at our long time fave @pizzeriamozza, a photo from our last date. The thing about moving is that you suddenly want to do ALL THE THINGS that you should have been doing all along. But have too many kids or are too tired or have a lot of stuff in your Netflix queue. There's no way I could keep up this pace of doing all the things if we weren't leaving soon, but I really am enjoying it while I can πŸ™Œβ€οΈ #fredricksgoodbyetour #datenight

So let's say you live in California but are moving to the Midwest. How much CA stuff is too much to take to, say Ohio? Asking for a friend... 😬 #thecalifornialovesisreal

Shared our last family photo shoot as Los Angelenos on the blog today. 9 years ago we had our first photo shoot with @jenroper when she shot our engagement session on a beach in Santa Monica, so it was only fitting we bookended our time here with another beach session. I think we'll have to visit yearly just so she can continue to document our family each year πŸ’—
you can find the post at the link on my profile, or ohlovelyday.com. I linked sources for our outfits as well as previous posts on styling and coordinating for family photos and some of our past family shoots in other favorite LA spots like Runyon Canyon and LACMA.
