After my shoot on Sunday, I headed for Visalia for a fun family getaway. Dan wasn’t able to join me, so the drive there was long, but okay. Sunday night, my aunt had the family over for a yummy tri-tip dinner. It was fun to see everyone and get to catch up. Most importantly, my cousin Jill and her adorable son, Jackson, were visiting from Tennessee!
Monday was my mom’s b-day, so we celebrated with a shop til’ you drop spree around town. We met grandma, my aunt, cousin, and Jackson for lunch at Valhala for a delicious meal. Grandma even had them make a homemade chocolate cake that was a-mazing!
Later in the day, my cousin brought Jackson over for a little photo shoot in my parent’s front yard. He is so adorable and really, really smart for his age. Best part, he knows who I am and can say my name! How cool is that??
To end my trip, I had breakfast on Tuesday with my grandma, Jill, and Jackson back at Valhala (who can resist ableskivers?), and a stop at a local strawberry patch for a gazillion strawberries to take back (they are to die for!).
