California is a lovely place, with lovely weather, and lovely friends, and GIANT TREES.
It’s kind of funny – we visited Erik and Margaret (and their two adorable, smart, and funny children) for a little more than three days, but the only pictures I have are from the day we went to see the redwoods.
We followed the creek and found a nice picnic spot, and then the kids (and Margaret) played in the creek. It was all so wholesome and fun, and I mean that – no sarcasm here.
I made this last one big ’cause otherwise you can barely see us.
It was so good to see them again, and it was such a relaxing weekend. They did a good job of making California seem like the place we want to be. It’s not, not long-term, but they did such a good job of showing us all the good parts that we temporarily forgot that, and it was really hard to leave.
