Casa de Fruta

Our little fam on the little train
Growing up, my parents took my brother and me to a lot of fun spots in the Bay Area. I had happy memories associated with those places and as I got older, I went back to them with friends or boyfriends hoping to again have a great time. Sometimes this worked (An alcohol fueled night at the Brookdale Lodge with my girls was more memorable than the family trip), and sometimes it didn't (The pumpkin patch in my twenties was kind of boring), reason being some places are really best enjoyed with a kid. Now that I have a family of my own, I have a list of destinations from my childhood I want to visit to recreate happy memories. One of those places was Casa de Fruta, so when my parents suggested we go to this roadside stop on our way back from Carmel, just like I did as a child, I was on board with my camera ready.  Little Ofilio may have been too young to enjoy everything this spot has to offer but the photos alone got me more than excited for whatever our next family outing may be. Any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!

Months 7 & 8

Month 7 
Month 8
Hard to believe but 2/3 of my muffin's first year are in the record books. He now has two adorable little teeth, crawls all over the place, sits unassisted in shopping carts and high chairs, eats real food (of the baby jar variety), loves the swing, had croup and his first fever :( and pulls himself up on anything that he can reach. This means that baby proofing is a must, as is constant supervision, because this little guy gets into everything! It's been so fun and honestly amazing to see him go from a baby to the start of a little boy. I can't wait until we can show him more things and experience this world through his fresh eyes. Happy 8 months Ofilito!!! Love you, love you, love you!!!
Side Note-These pictures are increasingly harder to take because he doesn't want to sit still:)
