Boise Zoo

We are at it again! Goals are being succeeded with all the family travels we have been doing since Xander has been born. Luckily we have family that lives near places that we are able to travel to.

This time we went to Boise, Idaho. We got to visit the Boise Zoo- it was amazing!

The zoo is a wonderful place for photographers – great photos to take everywhere.

Here are more photos I was able to take before my son started getting cranky and sleepy! Hard being a photographer and mom at the same time!

The zoo also had a Butterfly section! It was my niece’s Lily’s favorite. It was peaceful and great photo opportunity.

The Most Happiest Place on Earth

We were so very lucky to take Xander to one of our most favorite places ever- DisneyLand. We have always been to DisneyWorld, but not Disneyland in CA. Our Uncle lives there and we were able to visit and stay with them.

Disney Land is truly the most happiest place ever- and with Xander being only 1, he was still able to ride most of all rides. Most importantly, DisneyLand offers Riderswitch service which allows parents to switch off and ride while the other watches your child. I thought it would get lonely, but it doesn’t – it was just fine riding the rides, knowing my child was having fun too in Disney.

We brought our own stroller. With lots of internet searching, I saw that Disney does provide strollers, but nothing comfortable for your child, to take a nap in. During this time, Xander usually takes 1 -2 naps a day. I jumped on Facebook Marketplace and found a jogging stroller nearby that I could bring on the airport with us. Something I do not regret one bit. The stroller was strong enough to hold all of Xander’s things needed, diapers, wipes, sippy cup and snacks. I recommend this.

One of my favorite things about Disneyland? The Babycenter! DisneyLand offers a Babycenter where it’s quiet, you can breast feed, feed, change and have time with your child. Also the place offers formula, juice, baby food and even pacifiers for sale. Reminder: the babycenter only takes cash.

Xander’s first ride! Alice and Wonderland!

Here are the rest of some of my favorite pictures in DisneyLand – I didn’t want this magical day to end.
