pumpkin patch 2017
Behold my final deluge of photos from our NorCal trip two months ago. About time, especially since Christmas is upon us and I'm just now getting around to posting pictures from the pumpkin patch. We went up north for a dear friend's wedding in Half Moon Bay, but spent most of our time in Oakland with the Lums. With five young children between our two families, kid-friendly spots were the way to go. We couldn't handle Reverie at her first pumpkin patch, whereas the big kids adored vintage Fairyland. The best part was definitely spending time with people dear to our hearts. Time accelerates as we transition to different seasons in our lives, which makes quality time with cherished friends really special.

We made a short-lived stop in "Fransancisco," as Serene calls the city, during our trek up north two months ago. We ambled through Union Square, made our way to the sea lions at the wharf, and finished off the evening with Ghirardelli per Alex's request.

I'm finally sharing photos of the breathtaking redwoods in Santa Cruz from our trip up north two months ago. Life has been a whirlwind, partly due to the privilege to photograph others for Ah, Love. Which means photographing my own family and happenings hasn't been a priority. Thankful for some time to catch up and fondly reminisce about the redwoods, one of the highlights of our trip. God's wondrous creation and a kid-friendly trail made for a memorable morning activity. What a dream it'd be to have redwoods for a backyard!
