Disney California Adventure Park

Earlier this week we took Oliver (and Amelia) to Disney's California Adventure for one last hurrah before I return to work from maternity leave. It was so fun to watch Oliver's reactions to everything he saw! His favorite things were the rides (he went on Mater's Junkyard 4 times and all the rides in A Bug's Land) and watching the cars race by at Radiator Springs Racers (he was too short to ride that one). My husband and I especially enjoyed watching the neon lights turn on at sunset. They even played the 'sha boom' song!

Knowing that we had a lot of baby stuff to bring I thought that my 50mm lens would be small enough to tote around. As much as I want really great quality photos of family outings sometimes it's just not practical to use the big camera all the time. I ended up splitting my time between my camera and iPhone. My iPhone 6 takes pretty great photos and is easier to use when my hands are full with the baby. Overall, I think it's best to use whatever camera is available to you so that you can enjoy the moment yourself.
