massive trees and banana slugs



As I'm writing this, the snow is falling outside and the temperature has dropped down into the 20s. It seems so long ago that we were wandering around in the sunshine on the beach or the cool shade of massive trees. It's funny how when you come back from vacation you sometimes wonder if you ever really went on that trip. I guess that's why we take pictures to prove it!

It's been a couple weeks since we were exploring the northern California coast and driving among these massive trees. I would highly recommend northern California for a low key, relaxing family vacation. Our favorite part was going on daily hikes to check out these giants. It's about as different as Colorado forests as possible.




Banana slug!!













A little note about the picture below. You might notice that both girls are happily sucking on suckers. We call this Sucker Power. About halfway through this hike, in which we still had to go down half the mountain, they both started crying and whining. Whelp, that's why I pack some suckers in the bottom of my bag to give them a little extra motivation and energy to finish the hike. In all honesty, this pregnant lady could have used some sucker power, but we all made it down in one, happy piece.




Have a great weekend!
