On day 10 we biked to Raw & Juicy for juice/smoothies/granola, then headed home and and one of my dreams came true — to have the famous Alex Hinders document our family in our favorite place ever!
Here are some peeks I’ve seen so far.
Photos have a way of removing the daily stress, annoyances, and hard work, and leaving you with only a reminder of how blessed you are. The best and most sacred parts of what you work so hard for. There are few things more valuable to me in the world than photos of my family that capture the love we have and the stage we’re in, whatever that looks like at the time. I know without a doubt that one day I’ll be an old lady and these days will be gone, and I’ll be so thankful I have these images of the best days of my life to reflect on… because I am living the best days of my life. “The good old days” are now. The zest of life is happening all around me. Even if, in the actual moments, it can be hard to see amongst the hustle & bustle and whining and ten million trips to the potty. Photos are a powerful thing.
Thank you Alex, for capturing these photos for us. They are pure treasure. I can’t wait to see the rest!
After photos we hit up Bud & Alleys for lunch and then rewarded the kiddos with snow cones at Frost Bites. Like Raw & Juicy, Frost Bites is one of the permanently-parked food trucks in the Seaside circle. They make a darn good snow cone. The Blue Hawaii is my personal recommendation if you’re ever there!
After swimming, we hit the pool, then headed home and ate again, because why not? Pizza By the Sea. Mmmm.
Oh, and then the grownups snuck off for some more eating. We hit up Heavenly for some gelato & cookies.
