For the past 4 years, we've taken off for Big Sur the day after the children's school year ends to mark the start of their summer vacation! For 3 nights we camp along the Big Sur River, where the kids catch crawfish while mom and dad chill with a book. The water, although a bit cold, is quite refreshing whether one is tubing it or not. Camping really brings out the "kid factor" in our children. They become even more free spirited, open to meeting new people and simply content to hang around the fire. This year we invited family and a dear friend making this annual trip more special than usual. I'm so grateful to be living near such a beautiful place where mountains, rivers and ocean converge.
I hope everyone has a wonderful summer filled with lots of family, friends and new experiences. Take a look at some of my favorite images from the weekend:
