Family Vacation

This past week was spent in the Santa Cruz, California area with my extended family.  We all stayed together in one big house and enjoyed gourmet meals, golfing, diving board competitions, paddle boarding, surfing, a bike ride along the coastline... It was an action packed trip! 
 
Being able to "unplug" and focus on family time is always a refreshing reminder of what life is all about.

  1. Beautiful photos, and I totally agree, family vacations are the best! Iove that you guys went stand up paddleboarding...it's so much fun! Also, my husband and I were just in Santa Cruz this weekend! We just drove through on the way home from Carmel, but it's definitely a colorful place!
