Had one heck of a day today! 3 of us decided to create this elaborate field trip to take the kids on the coastline Amtrak train to a very cute historic town north of us. Knowing it was going to be a nice and warm day I chose to wear this bustier top I scored from TJ Maxx couple months ago.
Finally an outfit post with some cool backgrounds today!
This one is at the train station!
Thought the blue and white top would really pop over yellow. My husband did not think so but you know...
And this is just a proof of why I almost always do my photo shoots at home! Thought this came out cute though! My son of course fell moments after this shot and scraped his leg!
These photos are taken at the historic mission in the town. Such a beautiful place!
Hey you can see my blue eyeshadow!

Today's Activities: As I mentioned we did a big trip today. Left the house before 8 and drove north to meet my friends at the (Salona Beach) train station. My husband had bought us a dozen bagels and cream cheese so we ate breakfast in the train. The kids loved being in the train and mostly not being strapped.
The town we visited is called San Juan Capistrano. It is just the cutest little town with a historic district. We first visited the big Mission there. Kids loved the koi ponds the big ruins and bells and flowers covered with caterpillars and butterflies. After the mission we went to the huge petting zoo they have there. Had them feed many animals ride big ponies and horses and a train. Then it was onto a nice patio lunch at the cutest little cafe by the station. It was exhausting but also lots of fun. I really enjoyed touring the Mission.
Hope you enjoy the photos...

My kids are the ones in sunglasses...
I loved these bells!
Kids chasing the flowers that were blowing in the wind in circles!
You can get a feel of the grandness of the place when you see it with the tiny kids!
Here are all 6 kids in the same photo!
Another group photos right before we left this beautiful place!

After lunch treat!
And the brave mommies who made it all happen. Funny how when you take the kids out of the photo you realize how outnumbered we were!
Of course do not be fooled by the happy poses of these photos. It was a lot of fun but it was not without meltdowns and tantrums and fights and timeouts. That is just life with kids though. At the end you only remember the fun part!
