Family Trip to California


Our little family was able to sneak away for a few days back in March and we couldn’t be more grateful for the four days we spent together exploring a tiny bit of the West Coast. Our adventure started in Healdsburg and ended in San Francisco and even though it was a quick trip, we feel that we made the most of our adventure. We decided that we wanted to focus on the natural beauty of the area and since we were traveling with Perry (15 months at the time of the trip) we wanted to keep our itinerary slightly flexible.

We all came back refreshed with a new appreciation for one another. Traveling together is something that we love and we are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to do so! If you are interested, we’ve listed our full itinerary at the bottom of the post for anyone who may be planning a trip. Also, we have to share our thankfulness to our friends Becky, Jim, Meredith and Michael, and Em and John who had some great advice for us when we were planning — thanks guys!

We hope everyone has a lovely weekend ahead! We are making our way to the coast tomorrow for a lovely wedding and we will be back with some beautiful posts for you next week!
