summer beach day // cannon beach

the beach is easily one of our family's favorite places.  we have the perfect day down to a science... it's hug point for the first half of the day exploring tide pools & waterfalls, then downtown cannon beach for fish & chips at tom's, then the second half of the day spent haystack rock playing in the creek throwing a ball for brooks.

this time we added something new... a fire on the beach!  definitely our best beach decision in a while.  it was so fun to stick around after sunset & watch the sun go down beyond the horizon all cozied up to a fire & eating s'mores.

we give this beach trip a 10/10, would definitely do again.

camping // mount hood

this was our third year carrying on the tradition of an annual camping trip with sam's family.  we've got it down to a pretty good system between our three families (sam's parents, sister's fam & us).  here's year one & year two.  this was the first year brooks got to join which added an extra level of chaos but we all had a blast.  kayaking, hiking, s'mores roasting, fishing, trail running, stars gazing, flashlight tagging & lots of yummy food eating.

can't wait to do it again next year.

parker // impromptu photo shoot

this kid is just the cutest.  he's home for the summer & we've settled in to a pretty nice little lazy routine of no routine.  both kids have a couple camps & swimming lessons this summer but for the most part we're taking it easy breezy.  the other day i found him just laying on my bed staring at the ceiling so i snuggled up for a sec which turned into tickles & then i was standing on the bed looking down on him & realized, this is a photo op.  ha!  such is life as a photographer.  i told him not to move & i ran to grab my camera.

i love these so much.

elliot came in towards the end & wasn't into pictures... he just wanted to wrestle.  i mean, that's just kinda how it is around here.  ya take what you can get.
