Memorial Day Weekend

Our weekend got off to a great start with a midday bowling and lunch date while the kids hung out at my parents' house. We were planning on seeing a movie but the timing didn't work out so we opted for bowling instead, which I think turned out to be more fun, especially since I won ;) Joe made me promise to point out that he beat me by a lot at arcade basketball afterwards though. 

On Sunday we went for a hike through the redwoods. I can't get enough of living so close to such a beautiful spot and we wind up going back there a couple times a month. This is the first time we made it all the way up to the lookout spot though, which took a lot of effort between pushing the stroller and alternating carrying one or sometimes both kids, or half dragging Ez up the hills when he insisted on walking. I'm proud of how far he managed to walk on his own, even if he did collapse in a heap at one point. Eventually we made it to the top though, and the view was so worth it. It was so green and you could see all the way to the ocean.

Oh, and we saw baby deer! Two of them. They were leaping through the grass following their mama and it was the cutest thing ever:

Unfortunately on Memorial Day Ez had a fever so we laid low and watched the Golden State Warriors win game 7 against the Thunder. 

Hope you all had a great, family-filled weekend!


  1. You guys are so active and get to hike in some beautiful spots! So jealous of all the fun spots you guys get to visit regularly!

  2. Whoa, that first photo and that view…AMAZING!!! Bowling sounds like a fun date. We haven’t been in years. I just love your hikes in the redwoods. So beautiful! So sorry that EZ was battling a fever. I hope he’s feeling 100% better now.
