30 + family + beach

Yesterday I shared a post with photos from my huge 30th Birthday celebration with my friends and family (I can't wait to share the second part of the celebration tomorrow), but today I wanted to take a break  and share photos from my actual day of my birthday celebrating with my little family. My mom came out for the weekend (she couldn't resist being with me on my 30th - understandably so, haha) so her, D, Raj and I spent the entire day just hanging out and enjoying our time together, which was exactly what I wished for. I wanted low key, relaxing, and enjoyable since I knew the party the following weekend would be high energy!

The four of us started off by getting breakfast at one of my favorite spots in the OC, Urth Caffe. I seriously can't explain how much I love their food (especially the French Toast), and if you follow me on Instragram (@amanda_u_blog) you have probably noticed that I go there a little more often than I would like to admit. 

Ya think Raj is already too cool for his folks? We love bugging him, it gives us such great pleasure! hahaha

After a nice breakfast, we decided to head over to the beach and walked around in Laguna Beach. We enjoyed hanging on the boardwalk for a while, letting Raj chase birds, and then shopped and indulged in some tasty treats.

As a treat for Mommy's birthday, we let Raj have hit first ice cream... it is pretty easy to see how much he loved it!!

All in all, it was an amazing way to spend my birthday. The party and festivities are always awesome, but I would say there is nothing better in life than exploring and enjoying beautiful places with the people you love. If my birthday and party are any indication of how 30 is going to be... I am so happy to welcome the upcoming years!

Stay tuned for my second party post tomorrow!!! SO many more fun photos and details to share...

With love,
