The Days of Summer
I don’t even know where to start. How to sum up a whirl wind of sunshine and new experiences into one post.
I got the oppurtunity to model for Lace & Lilac, a local shop with the sweetest owner.
This memorable trip was followed by her dreamy bridal shower. So much planning and details went into that day, and Vicki absolutely deserved it all.
For the third year I was able to serve at kid’s camp, as a teacher for a group of girls.
Experienced one of the most memorable youth camps; team bonding, prayers, powder paint, “spookiest workouts”, late night races to finish the treasure hunt, swimming in the lake, and vetoing captains.
Spent a lot of free time with Vicki, coffee runs, wedding errands, and our annual giveaway. Bought kayaks the day we left to camp. Days with the family, we attempted to sleep in hammocks, kayaked all day long, and ate bomb food (steak and fish tacos). Went to the fair with the siblings, where we won overpriced stuffed animals. Painted and re-did our room. Had my last day working at Lapin Motor Co.
Visited so many beautiful areas of Washington and Oregon. Including a sunrise at Columbia Gorge and a sunset at Larch Mt. Discovering sunflowers right by home.
And the last hurrah. Road-tripping to Yosemite National Park with my favorite people. Camping with bear warnings, exploring the Valley, and hiking to the most amazing view. Of all the places i’ve been, Taft Point quickly became my favorite. We just had to go back there for sunset. Leaving Yosemite, we moved our campsite to Half Moon Bay, a beach right outside of San Fransisco. We watched the sunset, saw dolphins, and ate delicious tacos. Explored the city, spent hours on the Pier, and experienced the Golden Gate Bridge. Made it to our last campground in Elk Prairie where elk roamed around in the mornings. Drove through the Redwood Forest, where we hugged some trees and then made our drive back home.
That’s my short summary of the summer of 2018 and you bet it’s something I will always look back on.
