It's not everyday that your kids get asked to be in a photo shoot for a magazine. So when Orange Coast Magazine asked if our boys could be in their “cool kids” article we were pretty excited. They shot it a few months ago at the Monarch Beach Resort. My boys and I got there a bit early so we hung out in the lobby until it was time to get started.
The staff at Orange Coast Magazine provided snacks for the kids and made sure that everything ran really smoothly. There were something like 30 kids so you can imagine that that could have gone sideways pretty dang easily.
What the boys wore (none of these items are sponsored):
The parents also worked really hard to get all the kids to smile, look in one direction and not run away (the littlest kids…and my youngest son. I'm pretty sure he knew I had Skittles as a bribe in my bag and he was intent on getting them).
Thank you for having us Orange Coast Magazine!! It was a really fun experience!
