A bunch of photos from April and May.

If you follow me on Instagram (@colormerad), you'll know we spend the day in Joshua Tree for Mother's Day. We did the same thing last year, and I loved it so much, I asked to do it again. Well, this year didn't go as planned. Our little two year old was a meltdown mess and by the end of the day, the poor kiddo sat on a cactus. It was terrible. But the handful of images I got sure made it look like a lot of fun. :) Aaaah, the power of selective documentation.

I also brought along a little Nikon AF600 for Rowan to use. And although I ended up taking more usable images with it than he did, there are a few shots from that camera too. I forgot what an awesome little camera that is.

By now you can tell camping is our #1 family activity. And its also where the majority of my time is spent burning through rolls of film. Over Rowan's Spring Break, we spent 6 days in Cayucos and it was one of my most favorite trips yet. Its a sleepy little beach town north of Pismo and San Luis Obispo. Our camp ground was up on a hill that overlooked the entire town and was walking distance from everything. A perfect set up for 6 days. Cannot way to go back someday.

The first half of our commute was to Bakersfield for the Easter weekend. Which of course I didn't take any photos of. :-/ Then from there, we caravanned to the coast with my parents.
