It was a sunny summer day in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. I was 12 and had just moved into town from Spring,Texas.
As usual, I was riding my bike, following around my older brothers and their friends. When one of the boys spotted his sister, Brynne, he swiftly introduced us and ditched me with her!
AND BAM! Brynne+Sal=friends forever. Thanks for ditching me guys. Really!

Brynne now lives in Post Falls, Idaho with her husband and 2 cute boys (with another boy on the way!!).
She and her 4 year old, Cade, flew in for a 5 day Long Beach par-tay! Cade and I became fast friends.
We hit up the hot spots, starting with kayaking and paddle boarding the Naples canals.
Next, we cruised the beach bike path to the famous Long Beach Aquarium!
Cade loved it. Nemo fish and sharks were his faves.
And of course Disneyland! It was Cade's first time and he was pretty much mesmerized the entire day.
Other things we hit up: the beach playground, Sarah's house, In-N-Out, and Wahoo's Fish Tacos.
