Our California Adventure
Filmed by Melissa of LibbyLou Images
There is nothing better than a good old family vacation! The best part is sharing it with the best of friends! We recently went out to California for some fun in the sun. It was Liam’s 2nd time out there, but it was Ellie’s first. She was pure excitement at the airport. You would’ve thought that we fed her a bag of sugar! I was able to film some highlights of the trip while also snapping some photos. My camera is never too far from my side when there are fun, little, subjects to document! It’s always a struggle for me to choose to just be in the moment or to capture that very moment. I usually go with capture. 🙂 I do it mostly for our kids. They ask to watch the documentary films that I create for them all the time. I think they enjoy watching themselves grow just as much as we do. Well, I do wish we could slow down the growing up part. Now these five kiddos (the youngest being to small to hang at this lifeguard stand) have Mama’s that have shared a friendship that dates back almost 25 years. We have been on a million adventures together, and now we get to raise children side by side (or across the country). It’s the best journey of all! Watching these kids develop their own friendships is truly amazing! It warms my heart through and through! We love this family with all of our hearts! Here’s to many more “quests for fun”!!
