While I was searching through my external hard drive I found these throwback Thursday pictures from waayyy back on July 27, 2010 when I went to the Redwood Acres Fair in Eureka, California. I always liked these pictures but I never had a place to put them…until now.
This kid was serious about the Ferris Wheel.
These horses have seen some things…
Just like most Fairs it was colorful, exciting and just a little bit janky.
We got our beloved RV “Fred” when I was in second? third? grade and every summer (and some winter and spring) break we would go on a big camping trip. These are some of the memories I look fondly back at and appreciate that my parents were able to do this for my brother and I, we saw the whole western United States with Fred and we all have stories from our crazy adventures.
Lovingly improvised rain coats.
Just chillen on a Glacier at Glacier National Park in Montana.
Swimming in the Colorado River…we had a no go zone in this cove because my mom was worried that we were going to get swept away by the huge river behind us.
Hiking Devils Postpile in California and looking for dolphins on the Ferry in Seattle.
Catching a stagecoach in Tombstone, AZ.
Visiting Mesa Verde in Colorado.
It looks like I’m getting blown away but I’m actually pointing at Mt. Whitney in California.
Back in October my family and I went out to New Jersey for my nephew’s baptism, on one of the days we were out there my sister, brother, brother in law, nephew, aunt and dog in law drove out to Warwick, New York for some apple picking.
I’m not real gung-ho about getting within 10 feet of a baby but I made an exception for this guy.
In April 2011, I met my friend Kailey in Dublin, Ireland. I had only been at the hostel (after getting lost and taking bad directions from some random guy on the street) for a an hour or so before we (Kailey had some options) started planning out our Ireland adventure. We settled on a bus tour from Dublin to Galway. It was a wonderfully sunny couple of days and all of the pale red headed people were out en masse with ALL of the SPF.
Every mile or so there is an old stone castle circa: a long time ago.
I fed a lamb.
Stone walls everywhere.
Majestic Cliffs of Moher.
A castle and Dublin.
Kailey and I avoided the fee to go inside Christ Church Cathedral by attending Mass.
