J + M // SHO BOUDREAU PHOTOGRAPHY

J + M // COUPLES SHOOT WITH SHO BOUDREAU PHOTOGRAPHY

 

Just a few weeks ago, I was looking through the photos I had on my phone & realized that 80% of my photos were of my son, Jax. The other 20% were of Jax and I, our dogs, selfies, and the occasional food photo. I hardly had any photos of just my husband, JJ, and I and the ones that I did have were before Jax. I think the last time we actually had photos taken of us was back when we got married. So when the chance to work with Sho Boudreau came up, I knew we had to take it! I’m so glad we did because we absolutely love, love, love our photos!

MICHMILLA // SUNDAY FUNDAY AT LIBERTY PUBLIC MARKET

Another weekend, another adventure for the Milla family! Well, kind of. We’ve been to Liberty Public Market before but didn’t really get the chance to enjoy it. The last time we were here, Jax was about 10 months old & teething like crazy so we didn’t get to enjoy it as much as we wanted to. Thankfully, our little redo adventure turned out pretty great!

A DAY AT THE SAN DIEGO SAFARI PARK

MICHMILLA // SAN DIEGO SAFARI PARK

One of the things I love about living in San Diego is that the weather is always AMAZING (well, almost!) even in December! We decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and do something fun. Our lovely neighbor gave us a 50% off coupon to the San Diego Safari Park so we thought why not go there? Plus, JJ gets in for free because he is active duty military & Jax is under 3. So we packed up and headed out for some fun at the Safari Park!

HALLOWEEN 2017 // Jax’s First Time Trick or Treating

HALLOWEEN 2017

HALLOWEEN 2017

HALLOWEEN 2017

Hello, loves! I hope you all had a great Halloween! Last night, we took Jax out for his first time trick or treating. We actually live in an apartment complex and not too many neighbors participate in the Halloween festivities so our good friends, Dylan and Leavell, invited us over to trick or treat in their neighborhood! It was Jax’s first time actually going door to door and he loved it! Jax was a little scared at first, but after a few houses, he got the hang of it. It so cute watching him trick or treat. You should’ve seen how happy he was! We headed back to their place to help pass out candy once it got dark. Jax was so excited to help. He would literally wait at the screen door waiting for other kids to come up. Little man even put pieces of candy in their bags! It was the sweetest thing everrrrr! Halloween 2017 was a success! We’re already counting down to next year!

Hey all! I just wanted to share our little family day out at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park this past Tuesday. The science center offers “Resident Free Days” to San Diego county residents, Active Duty Military & their families, and local college students with valid I.D. on the first Tuesday of every month. With JJ’s leave almost ending, we figured we might as well take advantage of that & check it out. Enjoy!

A Day at the Park

Mother and Son Mother and Son Father and Son Father and Son

 

Like I mentioned before, our little family loves to explore San Diego. We love to go out to eat, see the sights, and be tourists in our own (adopted) city. Unfortunately, it does get a bit expensive especially since we’re a single income family at the moment. To save some money, we always try to find fun, family friendly activities that are inexpensive. One of these activities is just spending the day at one of our local parks. Jax absolutely loves going to the park. He can walk around the playground & go on the slides all day if he could! I love it because we get to spend some family time together, we don’t have to spend a dime, and Jax gets in a pretty good nap afterwards. You can’t beat that, right?

What are a few activities that you & your family do that don’t break the bank? Please feel free to share them in the comments!

 

Family Day Out – North Park

Father and Son Hundred Proof Husband Hammond's Ice Cream

 

One of the things that we love to do as a family is go out and explore San Diego. We’ve been here for a little over a year but there’s still so much that we have yet to discover. We decided to spend the day out in North Park. I absolutely love this neighborhood because of all the good food spots and cute boutiques. If we ever had a chance to move to a different neighborhood, North Park is definitely on the top of my list!
