What Beauty Surrounds



This weekend we drove about 5 minutes from our house, and took a hike while the older kids had a karate class...this is what we saw:


Redwoods 5 minutes away!!! Who knew?!






We are truly blessed!

  1. Wow where is this? Its really neat looking. I didn't know that we had any local redwoods. Those must be younguns compared to the ones up North. I wonder how they got there?

  3. Thanks so much! :) These were taken at Thomas Aquinas College in Ojai- right up the road from us. It is so beautiful back in there- and there are even rope swings over the water. We were very surprised to find those Sequoia trees! They are special trees for us, as we met in Sequoia National Park! I will definitely have to dedicate a post (or two!) to our story. :)

  4. Very cool campus. Think I can see one of the rope swings in one of those pictures. Did Little Miss grow?! She looks taller and leaner (even though she isn't standing in any of the pictures). Her hair grew too--it's so pretty. Love you! Don't forget to include the Coco Puffs and beer in your story! jk love you all.

  5. Thanks so much Ana :) And yes, they all have had a growth spurt- the other day Gabe came in and I told him to take his shoes off in the house...he didn't have any on- and he is almost as tall as me! :/ That made me laugh- I will definitely have to include the Coco Puffs and beer! Definitely an important part. :) xoxo
