We headed out around 6am for the long drive to Long Beach, CA. Our first long road trip with Iris. We had to get there by 2pm for our friend’s wedding ceremony in the Queen Mary. We had to wake up the kids early so they were tired but at least we had a beautiful sunrise.
Simon was a little bored and a little tired but didn’t nap much. What did parents do before the iPad? Playing games and watching videos kept him entertained. But at the beginning of the trip, he wasn’t quite awake yet so wasn’t in the mood for playing, just chillin’.
We barely made it in time for the 2pm scheduled start of the ceremony. We hit some traffic and had to checkin to our hotel to change clothes and to have lunch. The ceremony ended up being delayed because some guests were stranded at their airports or delayed at LAX due to the shooting there on Friday. So we didn’t miss a thing and watched to short but sweet ceremony. Iris attended her first wedding!

The dinner banquet was in Cerritos so we decided to drive there. Iris napped while Simon and Ron explored the shopping plaza where the restaurant was located. They ran into Minnie Mouse!
We had a lot of babies at our table who all were getting tired by the end of the dinner. Parents with their Ergobaby carriers.
