A day trip to Mendocino

Mendocino is another quaint little beach town on the California coast. There is a beautiful hike out to a point that looks back at the town and out at the ocean. This time of year there are gray and humpback whales migrating up the coast that you can occasionally see. The last couple of days have been really windy and the water has been too choppy to spot any. When Owen gets bigger we will take him out on a boat to see the whales, one of his mommy's favorite things to do!

Isn't that baby backpack amazing? Owen looked like a prince riding down the path on a camel (not that I'm saying you look like a camel Paul). It even has a shade canopy that can come out to protect him from the sun, which Owen really needs. Thank you so much Uncle Steve and Aunt Cyndi! I'm sure we will make a lot of memories with it over the next many years!

Last year, around this same time, we came to Fort Bragg for our anniversary before Owen arrived. It was our last trip with just Paul and I. It is fun thinking back on when I was pregnant, wondering when our baby boy would arrive, what he would be like and how our life would change. He has only been here 9 months but I can hardly remember what it was like without him. 

Here are a few pictures from our trip to Mendocino last year! I was 28 weeks pregnant with Owen!
