When I last left you, my family was just winding down our vacation in Flaming Gorge, Utah. That already feels like a lifetime ago! We’ve since been on another camping/road trip and are now finally back in San Diego. While it will take me another few days to get completely caught up again (surprise surprise) I anticipate staying up-to-date with the photo project for at least a little while.
On our way back from the lake we camped at Cedar Breaks National Monument. Our crazy car tent was dwarfed by the giant pine trees.
Did you know the skinny rock spires in places like Cedar Breaks and Bryce Canyon are called Hoodoos?
A toast to being back home. Every summer drink, including this whiskey and coke, tastes better from a copper cup.
Monday morning kicked off a plan to eat clean for a month. It’s been a bit of a struggle with the additional travel, but a fridge full of fruits and veggies certainly helps motivate.
I admit, this picture was taken at almost midnight when I realized I didn’t have anything else for the day. The lighting is lousy, but I do adore the “Mint Chip” color scheme for this custom cupcake set.
One goal of mine is to practice “golden hour” shots. A simple picture of Little Lady poking her head through her playhouse becomes a keepsake when the suns rays shine through and light her hair.
I can’t believe I was 31 years old before I tried hot n’ spicy pickled okra. Always a fan of the quirky vegetable, I’m slightly obsessed with this brand. You can find it at Bass Pro of all places.
There is no doubt that Little Lady will be as enthusiastic about food as her parents are. The plate of fried shrimp never stood a chance.
Another road trip! We were rewarded after a 10 hour drive with a stay at the gorgeous home of a family friend.
Her property spans 15 acres, and comes complete with a barn and two resident sheep. Little Lady loved feeding the “baa-baas” each morning.
Joe the sheep.
A beautiful pink sunset reflected on the pond. There’s no way I could have captured this shot a year ago.
Next stop was a visit to Lassen Volcanic National Park. This place was magical with stunning hikes to geothermal activity and warm mountain lake camping.

I will be posting the rest of the pictures from our Northern California road trip in the next Catch The Moment post. Please stop by again!
