Catalina Island is one of my favorite places and we went for my birthday this year! We did a couple things we hadn’t done before – we rented a golf cart in Avalon and did a two hour golf cart tour around Avalon. The sights were amazing and it was great to see things that […]Read more "Catalina Island Birthday Celebration"
After Mike and I went to see the foxes, we decided to go check out the wildflower bloom in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. It definitely did not disappoint! We saw some beautiful flowers and some great scenes! My favorite part was the moonrise we saw over the mountains. We also learned about a new desert […]Read more "Anza-Borrego Desert State Park"
Back in February, Mike and I went to the JAB Canid Education and Conservation Center (JABCECC) to meet and learn about foxes. This place was actually very close to the California Wolf Center that Mike and I visited a few years ago. However, much like the wolves, Mike and I didn’t realize how much we […]Read more "JAB Canid Education and Conservation Center"
When Mike and I went home for Christmas, my parents made plans to take us to Clifton Mill to see the Christmas lights. The Clifton Mill Christmas lights were actually featured on ABC’s The Great Christmas Light Fight and they WON! They won $50,000 and after seeing the lights in person, that award was well […]Read more "Christmas Lights in Ohio"
Ever since going to the Carter Presidential Library in Atlanta, we’ve been wanting to check out both the Reagan and Nixon libraries here in SoCal. We still haven’t made it to Nixon’s library, but we did go to the Reagan library and…WOW. The library is in Simi Valley and the views from the library are […]Read more "Ronald Reagan Presidential Library"
We were so happy to be back with the Night Hawks for one of our favorite photo shoots in downtown LA! Mike and I started off in Grand Park and had a great time photographing the fountain before we went to the Walt Disney Concert Hall and then the freeway bridges!Read more "Night Hawks DTLA"
Our last day in Tanzania was bittersweet – Mike and I had been gone for almost two weeks and we were ready to go home. But the experiences we had were absolutely incredible, once-in-a-lifetime moments. We knew we would miss it. Luckily, we were able to go on one last game drive that morning. And […]Read more "Tanzania – Our Last Day"
Our last full day in Africa was incredibly eventful! We had a beautiful sunrise (our first of the trip!), and our first game drive started by watching a cheetah enjoy the catch of the day (a baby wildebeest). We ended our day watching honeymoon lions – more on that later. In between, we followed a […]Read more "Tanzania – Day Four in Lake Ndutu"
Our trip to Serengeti National Park was highly anticipated by our group for one reason – elephants. We saw a group of elephants in Ngorongoro Crater, but they were too far away to get good pictures of. Since then, we hadn’t seen any other elephants. Everyone was hoping that we’d see a huge herd of […]Read more "Tanzania – Day Three in Lake Ndutu and Serengeti National Park"
Our second day in Lake Ndutu brought less rain, which was great for us because that meant a lake crossing could take place! We started off the day with cheetahs and lions and ended the day watching one of the jeeps get pulled out of an aardvark hole. We also got to see two vultures […]Read more "Tanzania – Day Two at Lake Ndutu"
