“In wisdom gathered over time I have found that every experience is a form of exploration.” – Ansel Adams

May you embrace and explore all the world has to offer you in this New Year.  We’re excited to do the same.  Happy New Year!

We went to mow the lawn, and decided lying in the clovers was more fun.

0001 Wedding Photographer San Diego PhotojournalisticBefore our busiest month of the year (May) started, we decided to get away for a few days… Big Sur is our usual go-to place for a 3-4 day getaway, but we decided to go somewhere we hadn’t been before.  Sequoia was the obvious choice, as we’ve heard great things, and it’s only 5 hours drive. So, off we headed to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.  Here are some of our fun adventures with Dylan!0002 Wedding Photographer San Diego PhotojournalisticOur great little traveler. 0003 Wedding Photographer San Diego PhotojournalisticYou can often find Rick climbing trees and doing squats and push ups in random locations.  It can be slightly embarrassing to have Rick do this in very random locations, but Rick doesn’t care.  And now Dylan is joining in, which I thought was actually pretty cute.0004 Wedding Photographer San Diego PhotojournalisticHaving fun in the famous Tunnel Log. 0005 Wedding Photographer San Diego PhotojournalisticI love all of the carvings in the tree trunk. 0006 Wedding Photographer San Diego PhotojournalisticHappy Camper.0007 Wedding Photographer San Diego PhotojournalisticHere Rick goes again…0008 Wedding Photographer San Diego PhotojournalisticDylan and me checking out General Sherman, the world’s largest tree!0010 Wedding Photographer San Diego PhotojournalisticThis backdrop almost looks fake!

Last week, we were hanging out in our neighborhood at dusk. Dylan was riding his bike (a skill he acquired a few months ago that was recently endorsed by Santa, who brought him a new bike).  Rick and I were running alongside Dylan when I saw this scene unfold as Rick helped Dylan up the hill.  Something about the gesture of Rick reaching out to help Dylan (who is becoming increasingly independent) and the way their silhouettes surfaced at the crest of the hill, alongside the electric lines and lampposts caught my eye.  It was just an ordinary moment, but I’ve found since I’ve become a mother that sometimes the most ordinary moments can spark a little introspection or cause me to feel a sense of peace, a sense of being at home.  This scene did just that, and I had no camera on me (who runs with a camera?!). I could have just let it pass, but I feel that these ordinary, every day moments often get overlooked or forgotten. I wanted to take this photo to remember this moment and the introspection it generated. So, I ran home and got the SLR and ran down the street to meet back up with the guys, where I then took this photo.  It’s just a little reminder of how precious and fleeting those everyday moments are… and how worthy they are of our attention.

Our little boy is now three years old! Hard to believe how fast the time has gone.  Here are a few images from his birthday festivities…Waking up the morning of his birthday and looking outside to confirm that ‘the sun is up.’This cake was made by the talented Amy Black at Cupcakery. There are always yellow buses outside his school, so this was our little tribute to the school, which he will be graduating from this month…

When I asked Dylan what he wanted his birthday cake for his family party to look like, he said, “marbles.” Since we know an awesome cake artist, we knew she could make his request happen. And here’s the result: cake ball marbles! They were delicious!

Something that kept us going during the six weeks while Dylan was in the cast was that we would get to take him and his cousin to see Thomas the Tank Engine in person once the cast was off! Enjoy!
