The Great Adventure – Day 21

Today was another relaxing day with family.  Tomorrow we will be back on the road, however.  We got up late and Nick went off to have a lunch date with his mom, and I went off to have a lunch date with his dad:


Later in the afternoon, I started to put together a narrated photo album of our trip – a more daunting task that I had originally imaged.  I’ve been working on it for hours already and am still on the first week!  Meanwhile, Nick and his sister made a little home-video re-enactment of a scene from Frozen:

If you’re interested, you can watch it HERE.

In the evening we went out for birthday dinners all around.  Nick’s birthday was last week, and his sisters’ birthdays were also last week and this week.


The birthday crew:


We waited patiently in the car while the parents went to pick up an ice-cream cake:

Later that night were presents, dessert, games and hot-tubbing:




We gave Robyn her “sea to sea” gifts that we picked up in Portland, Oregon, (coffee) and also New York City (personalized M&Ms).

We bought Katrina’s gifts solely from Disney Land (a Disney pin and Mickey Mouse hand oven mitt).

Nick got a new shirt and card game.


Later the family gathered around to watch the home video Nick had made for Katrina, and then they played Nick’s new game while I headed out to the hot tub 🙂

And tomorrow we’re back on the road heading West 🙂

Hi! I’m Laura, a coffee-loving, outgoing introvert with a passion for motherhood and photography. This blog is an extension of who I am. I’m a mommy to three little boys, and I love to create and write. I’m also loud, tend to over share, and am a type-A personality in the extreme. I’m a little pensive and can be a lot sarcastic.  I believe that motherhood is something more than just to be survived! This is both a space where I share glimpses into my business and the photo shoots I do, and also my personal space to just write about whatever is on my heart. So grab a cup of coffee, come stay for a while and let’s get to know each other. 🙂
