Gorgeous spring weather has come to the Central Valley, so we decided to celebrate it with a picnic with friends.


We met up at Hidden Valley park, which has rolling hills of grass, a duck pond, and playgrounds. Anneliese got to wear her new sun hat, and I got to break in my awesome waterproof-backed picnic blanket.



Henri wasn’t sure what to think of all the ladies.


Allen was sporting his awesome Aviators and chilling.


Annalyce seems to have lost her awesome floppy hat while she was drinking some water.


I love mamas and babies just snuggling and talking. So laid back. So comfy.


This is a beautiful family. I’m so happy to have met Christiana and her girls through Hanford’s La Leche League.


Ella tried on the GIGANTIC flower I got for her. And generally looked adorable.


Thanks to Krystale for taking some pictures of me and Anneliese!


The next day was the Spring Swap Meet on base, and I got to show off all my Joyful A. Baby wares. Oh yeah, have I told you? I’ve started a little baby boutique. And boy stuff is coming soon! If you’re local to me, ask about hosting a home party. I’ve done one and have 3 more coming up soon!

Still setting up in this picture (I’m sitting on the ground)…


Tutus! Stationery!


Lots of flowers…


More flowers and headbands.


And my sweet friend Rachel was right across from me, so we got to chat the whole time.


Anneliese was in the ring sling the entire time, and she was perfect. She nursed twice (everyone thought she was sleeping!), took a great nap, and quietly observed all the excitement around her.
