hawaii part 4











I realized I never finished posting Hawaii pics! Yes, it has been 6 months since we were there, and yes, I would like to go again now :) I figured I might as well post them and just try to re-live being there for now.

 We went snorkeling almost everyday and saw turtles every time we snorkeled! I'd only ever seen a turtle once before, but never this close! I may have been a little obsessed.

I also have always wanted to learn how to surf, so I took a surfing lesson! I highly recommend taking at least one lesson because otherwise I would've had NO idea what I was doing (seriously, I'd tried twice before and both times were epic failures). It was awesome and I got up about 4 times on my own! So now I'm just looking forward to our next surfing adventure!

And also our next Hawaii adventure..I've never been to Kauai. Any tips or recommendations? :)

Live Infinitely











We are big hammock people. I still remember camping with TJ before we were married and he insisted on sleeping in his hammock overnight (he got SO cold haha). And we have the perfect hammock trees in our backyard and have tried out numerous hammocks. I've found that most are too heavy or too complicated to take down and put up often, which is necessary, being that it rains all the time here.

Hailey is OBSESSED with hammocks. If we have one hung up, she wants to be in it. Immediately. Forever. Haha she's opinionated. We finally found this lightweight hammock that is, seriously, so easy to put up and take down. It compacts into two tiny bags that make it easy to throw into the backpack for the day or store in our closet for the next sunny day. It's also really high quality. The biggest bonus for us... it's really easy to clean!! The dirt just rolls off, so that's a win in my book :) 

We're a little obsessed over here (see Hailey's face in the pics for reference) :) so we want to do a giveaway, in honor of all happy hammock babies everywhere! Head on over to our Instagram for a chance to win a hammock of your own! 

And if you don't win, use code FALLSALE for 10% off your purchase! Live Infinitely also sells exercise equipment, apparel, etc. so check them out if you're interested!

Morning at the Farm


Made friends with the donkey


She wouldn't walk with her shoes on..

Sooo happy we took off her shoes 

Love that my sister moved back up here :D

Really just wants to play with rocks always


I snuggle and she spits :)

Choker: Friday Faves  Jeans: American Eagle 

So I'm a summer girl through and through, but I have to say, fall really grew on me when I lived in Utah (probably because it's the only time of the year with mild temperatures haha). But I'm really into all the fall colors and activities that go along with the season now. We took Hailey to a farm for their fall toddler days where she got to play on tractors, pet animals, and just run around.

Of course, all she really wanted to do was play with the rocks, but isn't that how it always goes? :) We got to go with my mom and sister, so a fun girls day out. I love living so close to both of them! 

Can't wait to take Hailey to a pumpkin patch (or 2 or 3) now that she'll wear shoes! :)

Staycation




Loungin


Love the bond these two have :) 

So out after the hike. Love our Osprey pack


So much happening



This week has been full of adventure and a lot of playtime, as well as a lot of relaxing and hanging out. TJ took the week off of work for a staycation and it has been a blast! Sometimes it's nice to just have a whole week of family time right at home :)

We hiked to Cherry Creek Falls, went swimming a few times, went to the dog park, played outside, relaxed inside, and just enjoyed having dad home all week! It looks like we're about to hit the rainy season here in Washington so it was perfect timing. Now to plan our next vacation ;)

pastel pink hair




I've been wanting pink hair for about 2 years now and I finally decided to go for it! It's temporary, but I love how it turned out! :) Trying to decide if I should add more in or change up the color? We'll see!

Hope you all had a great Fourth of July! Will post pics of our fun day soon!

Hawaii Part 3



Hiking down!


Amazing flavored lemonade! Mine was guava and orange. 

My favorite leggings.












Above the clouds!




My leggings: Albion Fit / My shirt: Who, What, Wear

Sorry for the super long post!! But this was a super long, awesome, adventurous day!

We drove the North Shore road and our first stop was the blowhole. Hailey was asleep and my mom had been there a few times before so she stayed in the car with her while we hiked down to see it in action! It's pretty cool and goes off every couple minutes.  I definitely recommend it if you can find it :)

Then we stopped for some delicious flavored lemonades somewhere in the middle of the drive in a cute little town. Then, farther down the road, we stopped at Tiffany's restaurant for lunch. The salmon was really good! Then a quick shave ice stop of course.. Then we made it to the rainforest! It was seriously amazing! I kept feeling like I was going to see a dinosaur emerge from the trees like in Jurassic Park :) 

Then we headed off to Haleakala (the volcano!) and drove all the way to the top. It's seriously one of my favorite places because you are above the clouds! It's pretty amazing. We were going to stay for sunset and then see the stars but Hailey was struggling with the chill and the elevation so we decided to head back down and got some more food (of course). It was an awesome day and we all definitely slept well that night!
