This summer was fantastic from beginning to end and went by way too fast.
Days after school got out I loaded these three little nuggets into my car with my sister and headed South. Our destination was Ojai, CA but we wanted to see as much as possible on the way.
Once we got thru Oregon we stopped in to say hi to the red woods in Northern Cal.
You can not go south without a hello to the golden gate bridge
We said goodnight to the San Francisco fog and headed to Monterey.
Took a nice drive down the coast.
Had lunch before we made it to our destination
and now we rest
Surprise visit with our best friends
We took a fun trip to Orange/Riverside county to show my kiddos and sister my past.
The past that made me who I am.
Finally made it to the La Brea Tar Pits.
It was awesome!!
Along came the end of July.
Which means time to take my little family East to the best place on earth.
Our cabin in Montana really is the best place to stop and think.
This year we took a day trip/hike up to Leigh lake
Like I said...
the best place to think
Take morning kayak trips around the lake with my kiddos
Finally captured one of the lightning storms that came thru this summer
Still day dreaming....
Lots of laughs and smiles
This was the first summer since my twenties that I floated, napped and wandered around our beloved lake.
Like I said.
this summer went by way too fast.
