I know I still need to do my Disneyland post but honestly that is going to take me a few days…we were only suppose to stay for five days but five days turned into nine so I have a lot of pictures and video to go through. And hopefully once I get through all of that we can actually start the vlog I have been promising.
4TH OF JULY WEEKEND GETAWAY!
So, we decided to extend our Disney trip and we’re staying in California for this beautiful 4th of July weekend. (Sorry AZ – We need a break from the heat. I think we all remember Mila’s accurate description of what THAT’S like…click here if you missed it lol) The weather is perfect in SoCal right now… we’ve been lucky enough to find some beautiful places to stay in Laguna Beach and Newport. The kids love the beach… Soooo many sand castles.
Well, we’re finally off the mouse house. This, my friends, has been a long time coming and the kids could not be more excited! The packing has been a little intense, but I have to say that it’s been worth it to take the time to make sure we not only have backpacks full of items to keep the kids content on the plane, in the cars, and while waiting in lines, but also to ensure we have the tools and supplies to keep them hydrated and snacked up in what I fear is going to be some intense Anaheim heat. No, really, I’m not nervous at all! 😉 After all, it’s the most magical place on earth, and armed with the following, I’m sure we’re going to be just fine.
Several of our go-to products for this trip have provided me with exclusive discount codes for my readers, so keep on scrolling to take advantage of all the great savings! Keep an eye on Instagram and FB this week to keep up to date with all the magical mayhem that is about to enuse!

I like to think of myself as an expert when it comes to Arizona Resorts…I live for going to resorts…like I would live in a resort if my husband would let us. Does that make me weird? It’s partly the atmosphere and partly the kids are always entertained so I won’t hear…”I am bored!” Oh and I love that I don’t have to cook, do dishes, or clean…LOL!!! I thought I knew all of the great resorts locally in Arizona, until we visited the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess! It literally has something for everyone in the family.
The kids and I escaped from the house this weekend and headed a few miles North West to Tempe…all thanks to Tempe Tourism!! Tempe just happens to be home to Arizona State University, amazing hotels and resorts (summer time fun for us!) restaurants, great shopping, and really awesome activities for kids of all ages, like the LEGOLAND Discovery Center, Sea Life Aquarium, and the IMAX Theatre...just to name a few!
We stayed at the Phoenix Marriott Tempe at The Buttes. Honestly it was hard to get the kids to leave the resort because it was so fun and there were a ton of kids there.
