my amazing mom came to visit us last week, and because it was a short visit, we had to make every single minute count. once the babes were up from their naps, we headed out to ellwood mesa, which is just a few minutes from our house and one of the most magical places on earth.
once you convince your three year old to walk up the hill, you’re rewarded with huge fields of wildflowers, gorgeous views on the mountains, the pacific ocean, and if you’re really lucky, a pod of dolphins leaping through the waves (we were lucky). we wandered and talked. cruz sang to himself as he walked slower and slower behind, trailing sticks by his side.
i stretch my arms out, throw my head back, and sometimes i simply can’t get over what a beautiful world God created.
