Our First Family Ski Trip: Mammoth, CA

First Family Trip as 4: Palm Springs

This summer, we have been intentional about keeping it pretty low key since we basically still have a newborn baby (he is already almost 3 months!). While most of our summer days have looked like just hanging at home by the pool or watching dad surf at the beach, we did want to have a…… Continue reading First Family Trip as 4: Palm Springs
