Family Adventures, Fall 2014

The Bay area is incredible. That's really all there is to say. :) 

Most of our weekends include at least one big adventure; it's when we're all happiest. I'd love to teach our kids that we value relationships and experiences over possessions, and I think exploring this beautiful earth God gave us is a great way to do it. 

That said, we're still a normal family. Kids whine; Mom and Dad (but mostly Mom) get snappy. Thankfully, we still manage to surprise ourselves with some pretty great memories. 

Pictured: Beach outings (San Gregorio and Montara); a foggy drive up Twin Peaks; a gorgeous, blackberry-lined hike up Mt. Davison; Ryan's backpacking trip with his friend Matt to Carson Pass; an apple-picking extravaganza; and a detour to climb on rocks and socialize with seals at Ano Nuevo Reserve. 


  1. Every. Single. Picture. So. Beautiful! I want to live by you! What fun adventures and a darling family. We live for the weekends too and outings like this! Somehow, anything seems possible with Dad around!

  2. I love your family adventures! And I agree with Rach - Your pictures are amazing! So beautifully framed. And I LOVE those little people IN the pics! Lucky lady!
