camping weekend

Two weekends ago we packed up and headed to MontaƱa de Oro for a camping weekend with our SOMD students. This was our first time camping with the kids and they loved it!  I have so many great memories of camping trips with my family and I can't wait to make more memories with my own kids. Here are a few photos from our trip.

be all there

"Wherever you are, be all there." - Jim Elliot

The last two months have been especially full for us. We have been serving with Youth With a Mission in Pismo Beach for almost a year now and in April we pioneered a School of Ministry Development. We love what we are doing and we have really enjoyed leading this school (of which there are only four weeks left!) We have poured ourselves into our students and it has been an amazing adventure.

During this busy season, we have been very intentional in making our family time count. Weekends are especially sacred and we like to spend them relaxing and adventuring with our kids. It is important to us to be all there, to be present and to make the most of the time we are together. 

These photos were taken a few weekends ago at one of our most frequented and enjoyed spots in the area. There are so many happy and sweet memories here that it is becoming one of my favorite places on the planet. Enjoy xo

Terrace Hill

"The best things in life aren't things" -Art Buchwald
I love collecting experiences. I value making memories and exploring new places with my family more than any possession or thing we could own. We have a simple lifestyle but I feel that these moments are what make our lives rich. As I've heard it put before "Experiences trump stuff every single time."
A few weekends ago we spent a beautiful evening exploring Terrace Hill. We overlooked San Luis as the kids ran through wildflowers and nothing could have filled my heart more. Here's to living richly with the people I love.
