How we spent our last summer weekend (and it was so much fun)…


Mike and I took the kids to the California coast this weekend, which is a couple of hours away from where we live.

The wildflowers were in bloom and were just gorgeous.

The fog rolling in was almost magical looking.

We had a great time walking around the trails.

Mike and his brother, and off in the distance, my son and daughter with Mike’s brother’s girlfriend.

The kids loved looking at the tide pools with Mike’s brother, who knows a lot about marine life and was able to teach them about all the things they were seeing:

Bailey had fun too and made herself right at home.

It was a great weekend at a beautiful place… the perfect way to end the summer!

(My kids start school tomorrow and, while I’m looking forward to getting into more of a regular routine, I will miss having them around! Has your school year started yet?)
