50th wedding anniversary

My grandparents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. My family (everyone who was there) put together an a very thoughtful gathering of their friends.

On their wedding day :)

 Cousins, Iva (2 1/2 years old) and Ella (few weeks shy of 2)

Uncle Bill asked Elijah to film the entire day ... wonder how the video turned out.

Ella setting her own table.


The older cousins!

The happy couple!!

yeah ... my camera was highjacked ... 

Port San Luis

This was a memory my dad had growing up as a child. It was awesome he was able to take his kids and his grandkids!

Love this picture!!

and this one too ...

The bird that was inside the fence really wanted his picture taken again!

Butterflies by the Beach

Monarch Butterfly Grove in Pismo Beach, CA.

 The Monarch count has averaged 25,000 over the last five years. In most years, Pismo has the largest aggregation of Monarch butterflies in the U.S. The Pismo Beach Grove is the largest in the state. Pismo is the most visited site (by humans) in the world with an average of 60,000 visitors

It was so amazing to walk around and be surrounded by butterflies. The pictures do not do grove justice.
