Catalina Island

Our first weekend away since JESSICA!  I know!  Crazy how long it was- we promised each other we would never go that long again!
One of my preschoolers gifted me a weekend at their family beach house on Catalina Island as a Thank You gift for watching him since he was born when he left for kindergarten (he was one of my very first kids!).  I had him for 5 years- he is like a big brother to Jessica & Izzy. So sad when he left :(  What an amazing gift they gave me though!

Played a lot with my camera over the weekend.  We just walked around and explored.  I'm also playing around with placement for my pictures :)

Here are some of my favs:
Steve on the boat ride over.  Wish I could have enjoyed it more, but rediscovered that I get seasick :(
 Just arriving to the Island- we had amazing, gorgeous weather!

 Yay for a weekend just the two of us!

 The cute little Beach House we stayed at. So cozy and fun, and perfect for the two of us OR all four of us when we decide to make a trip over!

 We also ate a LOT of yummy food!  Found the best Mexican resturant, will be going back for sure!

 Jessica and Izzy supposedly missed us a little bit, they were so excited when we came home.  Especially since we brought them back some fun mermaid dolls.


  1. Oh my goodness.. that looked HEAVENLY! YEah for you two getting away! And gorgeous pics too!

  2. Isn't it fun?! We went there a few years ago on our anniversary. Our first overnight trip away from the kids. We went sky and scuba diving! It was awesome. Love the bird pics!

  3. Yay!! I'm so glad you finally got a lil vaca, just the two of you! Love the pics, gorgeous!!
