I saw these trees last year and loved the beautiful colors of the leaves in the light. But by the time I made it back, the leaves were gone. This year I was determined to find that spot to get some pictures of my kids. It was pretty chilly but once Evelyn and Atticus saw all of the leaves they quickly forgot they were cold (Vera was not amused though!). The best part about my kids getting older is that they're really starting to get into the fun of each season. We taught Evel
Our favorite beach was just down the street from our resort and it was beautiful. During high tide turtles swam into the cove and one even swam right between Nick and Evelyn! There were also seals that came up to the beach and beautful fish swimming in the clear water. I think my favorite part though was this little cove under the trees. I used to dream about places like this when I was young, and it was amazing to watch how my girls interacted with this magical environment.
In October we got to take an amazing family vacation to the Disney Aulani resort in Hawaii. The location was beautiful but getting to spend time with my family and watching my kids get so much love from some of their favorite people was the best. It also totally made up for the 5 hour time difference and the fact that we were up at 4 am with our kids everyday.
