August: Our Anniversary Trip

View from Brix Restaurant in Yountville



This year we decided to postpone our anniversary trip a little so Jude would be a little older when we left him for the first time.  Oh my goodness, this was by far the most relaxing vacation I have been on since having kiddos.  We stayed at Dr. Wilkinson's Resort in Calistoga and did the infamous and wonderful mud baths and relaxed in the pool and hot tub the entire tub.  Well other than when we were driving around the beautiful vineyards or eating incredible food.  We even slept through the night for the first time since I got pregnant a year ago May!  Hallelujah!  What a restorative weekend!

July

Knuckle Sandwiches

Moo Time In The Redwoods



In July we tried to have a family beach day in Santa Cruz, but traffic was so unbelievably awful we decided to stop in Saratoga for lunch at Tomatina and hiking in the redwoods at Sanborn Park instead.  It was beautiful!  Another evening Papa invited us to go kayaking with him at Shadow Cliffs, which made Oliver a little nervous, but it was a beautiful evening!
