So, I have decided that I'm making a new goal- Each year I want to go somewhere I've never been before. Right now that probably means close by places because honestly, I am in the season of life where I can only do so much with these cute kids in tow.
But what I am saying though is, that even in this complicated/busy/sticky/sippy cup season of life I can still have adventures.
I am lucky, because my lovely friend Meagan feels the same way and so when I told her I needed to take my kids to "Grandma Camp" and would she and her awesome kiddos like to come too she said, "YES!" And somehow we decided to add the Redwoods- a place we both wanted to visit and had both never been.
And so there we went 2 adults, 6 children, all packed in one car for an estimated 14 hours- which turned into more like 16 hours. (My cute Carter children who were at each others throats most of the time managed to also take pretty good care of each other too).
On our first day we visited the famous Trinidad Beach. Despite my warnings that it was a "cold beach" (59 degrees) and that they needed to wear jeans and sweaters, these kids were a tiny bit confused/disappointed. I sure wasn't it. It was gorgeous!
