Strawberry Picking

Out at Davis Ranch they have strawberry picking.  The kids love it.  They tried to discourage us from picking strawberries, since they said they had all been picked over the weekend.  We took our chances.






No stawberries left?  We found enough!





Summer isn't summer unless you have been strawberry picking.  Fun afternoon.

Tahoe Weekend Away

We planned our girls weekend away for months.  12 girls together for 48 hours just simply means = a whole lot of fun!  We traveled up in four different cars arriving at different times to Tahoe. 

We were super excited!

My car was stuffed to the max.


Bear sighting!


Two girls were assigned to each meal which made it so fun.  Friday night dinner was Taco Salad and brownies. 



Our place was awesome. 


Friday night fun.  So many memories waiting to happen when you head out for the night!


Breakfast!



Lunch.  I loved the effort that went into preparing each meal.  So fun to be served during the weekend. 


This weekend was a craft weekend. We definitely crafted.  Making Fourth of July wreaths! They turned out so cute!





Making hurricane lamps with flags.



You can never have enough glitter! 










Love the sparklers! 



It's five o'clock!  Amazing drinks that were made for Saturday night! 


I love a weekend that can just be spent relaxing and not feeling guilty about having to get stuff done


Three of us decided to go and make some more memories in Tahoe Saturday night.  One word. Fun.



We had to get a group shot before we headed home Sunday morning.  This picture just sums everything up.



For our hurricane lamps we needed some sand for the bottom.  We collected some Lake Tahoe sand.  It was a gorgeous afternoon.



Grabbing a little lunch before heading home. 


Our only casualty for the weekend.  My shoes that died at 4:30 am Saturday night. You know your weekend was amazing when your shoes fall apart on you.


I loved this weekend and the memories that were created.  So fun to get away for the weekend.  No children, good food, great company, Tahoe, no schedules, crafts, drinks, and laughing = an amazing time. Thanks for coming ladies!

Sweet Vanesa

I met a new family today. Mama, Daddy and their three month old baby girl.  Three month old babies are so sweet.  When I photographed this sweet doll this morning it made me wish I could rewind time and go back to this age with my children. I love the way they move, squeak, smile, and smell.  This little one had the chubbiest cheeks.  I just wanted to pinch them. 




How cute is this face!?




Pretty mama.


Loves Daddy



She loved playing with her hands. 



Baby feet are the cutest.

 What a great morning I had. Blessed to be able to meet new people and capture their special moment in time.
