Echo Park Boats

We have been soaking up all the newborn love for the past month or so. Getting back in to a normal routine seems to be a lot easier this time around. There are so many factors that play in to this, but I’m just super thankful for it!

Last week we had an hour of one on one time with Hudson at the Echo Park Boats. He is doing so amazingly as a big brother! He adores “his Sofia,” He walks around telling everyone, “this is my Sofia.” Don’t get me wrong, there’s been some adjustment, but he just adores his baby sister. Anyways, an hour or so to himself with uninterrupted mommy and daddy time was so good!

If you live here or find yourself in LA a visit to the boats at Echo Park Lake is an absolute MUST! The staff is so friendly, and it’s a great hour to spend in the middle of the city! For all the details about riding the boats, visit here.
We LOVE living in LA, and are so excited to start sharing more of our favorite places, like this, with you!

Happy Wednesday!

Matching Morning Downtown

Yesterday we woke up early and got out the door with plenty of time before church so we spent an hour or so Downtown just walking around. Before kids Jake and I planned to move Downtown and it’s always held this special place in our hearts. Hudson loves it down there, he just soaks it all in. Hudson’s jacket was my dad’s when he was little, and I have been dying to get some pictures of Hudson in it; this weekend it was cool enough to pull it out, and I could have just eaten him up! I will absolutely match him as long as I possibly can! Today marks 2 weeks until due date!!! Ahh! How has this pregnancy flown by so fast?! Hope all of your weeks are off to a good start! xo, J IMG_4284

Descanso Gardens

Saturday LA had it’s free-for-all museum day. 30+ museums opened up for the public to come and enjoy their space at no charge. We’ve been wanting to check out Descanso Gardens, and had a really fun couple of hours roaming around. It would be a great place to pack a picnic, and I imagine it’s gorgeous in the spring when everything’s in bloom! Lately, Hudson is happy anywhere he can run and find sticks, so this place was his own personal oasis. Hope your weekends were relaxed and your weeks are getting off to a great start!

An Afternoon at The Park

Some good friends recommended this amazing park that overlooks the whole city. We took the afternoon this weekend, had a picnic, and took some pictures. Typically After the holidays I feel like there’s a little lull, but not this year; things seem to be as busy as ever! So we enjoyed taking some time to slow down and be still-er. Hudson was obsessed with this park, and “cooking” with his sticks. It has undoubtedly become one of our new favorite places. I am so in love with these jeans and this sweater from PinkBlush Maternity! Being pregnant in the winter is SO different from being pregnant through the summer like I was with Hudson. I am constantly on the hunt for good maternity jeans, and these do not disappoint! I’m giving away a $50 gift card to their amazing store on my Instagram, so head on over there for details on how to enter. xoxo, Jac
