exploring san diego / cabrillo tide pools

jarman is on spring break and it has been so awesome having him home all the time. he has gotten to catch up on some quality time with jay and has been planning what we do every day! yesterday he decided we should go visit the tide pools near cabrillo national monument. it was so much fun and jay actually loved it- he was totally laughing as we walked back to the car. we are so excited to have a little beach baby this summer and are starting his training young!

^ Jay's first time putting his feet in the ocean! (don't worry- it was actually warm because it was so shallow!)

(impromptu) golden hour family pictures


jarman is on his last week of winter break and i never want him to go back to school. the first couple of weeks it was rainy and cold (even snowed in temecula in case you didn't hear), but this week has been so nice. we have already been to the beach twice. on monday we went with my mom and sisters and ended up taking some family pictures. i really wanted to hire a photographer to take pictures for us when jay was born, but it didn't work out. so i just make people take lots of pictures of us when we get the chance! if i had planned on doing these pics i probably would have done my hair, maybe worn a bit more make up and coordinated our outfits a little more. but i kind of love how they turned out- they have a soft, ethereal feel. looking at them makes me feel warm and cozy inside. it was jay's first beach day we captured it perfectly.
