We had a great time meeting up with friends at the pumpkin patch this week. TJ Farm was super-chill and low-key on Monday afternoon. It was so relaxing to soak up the sun, enjoy good conversation, and delight in the pumpkin harvest at the farm. We hope you enjoy the photos. I snapped this picture … Continue reading TJ Farms Estates 🎃 – Chico, California
Each autumn the salmon return to the very place that they were born to lay their eggs. We have visited the salmon ladders in Oroville, California for the past 7 years (since K was born). We went last year just before the Camp Fire struck, and we were so happy to see the salmon this … Continue reading Fall Salmon Run 🐟 – Feather River – Oroville, California
On Friday (9/27/19), we met up with friends at Playzeum in Yuba City, California. There was so much to play with here. It was like every cool pretend play idea you've ever seen on Pinterest all in one spot. A theater. A pretend grocery store & farmer's market. Behind the faux produce is the pretend … Continue reading Playzeum – Yuba City, California
I saw all of this on a 1/2 mile walk to the park with my husband, my kiddos, and my parents last Sabbath. What if I had driven the car instead?... I would have missed everything... I hope you are able to enjoy a walk with someone you love ❤️ today!

The past 9 and a half months on the road, traveling around the Western USA, have been amazing! We are so blessed to have been able to … Continue reading Pit Stop

On Saturday (9/20/19) while we were driving around Elko, NV looking for Centennial Boots, we stumbled upon this giant, wooden playground palace. It was amazing! Then someone showed up trying to give away kittens. Is there anything more adorable than kittens?! We didn't take home a kitten, but we sure wanted to!
This post is a little off-beat. Now that you've officially been forewarned... I didn't intend to do a Thursday Doors project this week. However, while we were visiting Elko, NV we decided to grab some lunch at Garibaldi's Mexican Restaurant, and when we stepped inside, I changed my mind. I know these are technically archways … Continue reading Thursday Doors – Garibaldi’s Mexican Restaurant – Elko, Nevada
