Exploring California redwoods

Took bebs out to the redwoods to have lunch late last week. Always feels so good to be surrounded by nature like this and get away from the urban lifestyle…not that there’s much of that going on with covid/shelter in place. It’s much quieter here, more calm. Sometimes the most simple moments are the best ones. Bebs had a great time exploring here and I’m definitely bringing him back here soon…if not this week, then next. It wasn’t crowded, but by the end of it I started to get a bit uncomfortable with two Mother’s and their billion children racing around us that I ended up just leaving the area to find somewhere else to explore. 

I mean just look at that light beaming through the redwoods. I went mid-day pretty much, so imagine what golden hour would look like here. Freakin’ unbelievable.

I brought our UPPAbaby MINU stroller for bebs, but really didn’t need it. In fact, next time I think I’ll skip on bringing it, you know – to tire him out more for a nap when we get home, ha!

This wee baby in my belly is some kicker b’ys…doesn’t stop! I wonder what that means lol. I don’t recall feeling bebs kick this often, this early on. 

I’m wearing the Elise Sweater by Oriane (gifted) in a size small. It’s a small women-owned mother and daughter team based in Minnesota. It’s maternity/nursing friendly and beyond. It comes in three great neutral colours and it’s $36. They also sell the most adorable and affordable baby clothes…take a look.  

Bebs pretty much has free reign when he’s out exploring with me. I always let him choose which way to go, and I think he really enjoys that bit of freedom. I said just above but I LOVE this area…we are totally going back soon.

  1. I would love to visit a redwood forest! We went to Washington last year and I was surprised to learn that most of the old forests are more south, in California.
