  6. That looks so serene and beautiful. Boy Maryanne's hair sure is getting long. Love love love that pic of her on the tree stump. Like Brigit said, I never really knew this part of California existed. Thanks for sharing.

  7. These images are magical Anne! I LOVE love love the shot of you in the trees. I get a kick out of how you and Ruben consider time with Maryanne "alone time" too. Also, how does she just keep getting cuter?! Glad to hear you got to enjoy this fun getaway :)

    1. well, when you have 4 children, one seems like almost alone. plus she is a baby. the other kids listen (and understand) our every word, so talking together or having a conversation can get difficult. so for those reasons it feels like alone. obviously we still have to watch and take care of her but it's a million times more relaxing than with the whole fam there :D

  12. I love you guys. You make life look so fun. And that shot of you in the tree. Perfect. In the best possible way.

    ps. You're like the one reason I finally caved and bought a hair straightener. From goodwill's green tags half off sale for, oh, 1.25, but still....;)
