Ruby's Redwoods

When I see a good photo, I always think that it has to be the best photo so far that I've seen in my entire life (I like to exaggerate). Well this is my new favorite. We stopped at Richardson's Grove, a serene Redwood Forest a bit south of Eureka. Ruby had never seen Redwood Trees like this before, so when we sat in the middle of this grove, she literally stared up at them for minute upon minute. I was so surprised at her reverence. If I can make the girls understand sometime in their life that trees are more interesting than television, I will feel as though I have succeeded in mothering.

I love that picture. When I was younger I camped with a friend there and it was a lot of fun. I am so glad I got to see you Sunday and so sorry that you all got sick. I was bummed not to get to see you but hopefully we can meet up in August or November when I go to Utah.

It's great to go on trips. I love watching the kids experience everything. Your girls are so cute.
