Memorial Day weekend was a lovely start to summer!
It’s such a special weekend that honors those we’ve lost…
especially those who have fought for our country, which I
take for granted way too often. So glad there is a day set aside
to honor all those who make our country livable and peaceful.
I always love to kick off summer and celebrate with family & friends.
This year we road tripped to Sequoia National Park for the weekend,
explored Fresno / Old Town Clovis on the way in and out, and made it
back in time to enjoy the Monday off at the best barbecue with friends!
It was such a good weekend and I can’t believe we’re almost to June!!Scenes from Sequoia! ^^ (More here)
Fun road trip in our new car Chase surprised me with on Friday before we left!
We’ve been looking at options to upgrade for baby #2 and he found a great one! ^^
(I was kind of unsure that we were taking it on a road trip first thing but also so happy haha :)
Fun to explore with this little park ranger ^^
Small town flea market! ^^
Baby girl shopping ^^
Lunch and shopping together really made it feel like vacation ^^
Roadside fruit stands all along our drive ^^
Pink trucks, palm trees + painted nails :) ^^
A major highlight of our road trip was getting to stop at our FAVORITE Cafe Rio! Can’t get enough.
Swimming at the hotel pool was a highlight for this little one ^^
A stop to see the Fresno temple and one more Rio for the road on our way home ^^
Back in time on Monday to bake up some cake and tarte for a barbecue with our friends!
Definitely indulged this weekend on our road trip and at the BBQ!
Best spread at our friend Steph’s house ^^
Best backyard of our friends, and this water slide bounce house ?! The kids were loving life!
Happy girl on the swings ^^
Three cheers for road trips, new national parks, roadside fruit stands, time
together as a little family, and barbecues with friends! Feeling grateful in every way!
