October’s Elmo Birthday Party!

Now that summer is over, I can actually do a little catch up on personal photos! Back in May, for October’s sixth birthday, we had a fun, laid back Elmo themed party. Elmo is definitely one of his favorite characters and shows to watch. I even found an Elmo to hire and come entertain the […]

Washington D.C. Travel Photos

There is just so much to see in Washington D.C.! You could easily stay an entire week there and not see every single thing there is to see. We definitely tried to fit in as much as we possibly could in just a couple of days. I already shared some of my photos from a […]

Southeast Road Trip – Washington D.C.

For our next day, we got to spend an entire glorious day in beautiful Washington D.C! It’d been a while since we were there last, and it’s just full of so much history.. and really a beautiful city to walk around in. We were lucky to get an absolutely gorgeous day with sunshine. We started […]

Southeast Road Trip – Part Two

After we finished in Savannah, we headed to nearby Charleston, SC. I totally fell head over heels in love with Charleston. It has an absolutely gorgeous historic district and again, it is just chock full of important American history. We went to the Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon, which is one of the oldest buildings […]

We checked out the Hollywood Forever cemetery and found quite a few celebrity markers. Then, we headed up the hills to the Observatory for the sprawling views of L.A. […]

California Adventures, Part Two!

After San Francisco, we went down to Half Moon Bay and ate some lunch directly across from the water. After lunch, we did a little bit of exploring, and MORE beach time. It is California, after all. It was absolutely perfect weather and blue skies at that point. We even found an organic rock sculpture […]

It was an absolutely beautiful trip and we really enjoyed getting to see so many fun, California sights. Of course, I […]
