We had such a great time this past weekend in Sedona. Our dear friends, The Evjen’s, saw two couples (us and The Alley’s) who really needed a mini vacation and to get away for a weekend. Alex took us up to her home in Sedona for the weekend; a trip that was planned when I was crushed about not being able to afford Disneyland. We still were able to go to Disneyland, with the help of my amazing family, and Alex and Ryan still wanted to take us up North- even though we were still able to go on an amazing vacation.
The Evjen’s and The Alley’s are great, great friends of ours. Alex and Ryan really made the weekend a great escape for four people who needed to relax! We were only there for two nights, but it was so relaxing and wonderful to get out of the heat and goof off with ridiculously cool people.
While we were in Sedona, Jay and I continued to document our lives. We love photography and honestly look at life as one big photo shoot.
This weekend was no different.
We had so much fun photographing everything. Nothing was off limits. We tried to capture every moment with these friends while we were there, capturing memories with friends that we are super grateful for.
Of course, we couldn’t start the weekend off without immediately taking tons of pictures of Cruz. That kid has more pictures that he will ever know what to do with. And I am grateful for that.
We went to Flagstaff for the day on Saturday to shop, eat and go to an amazing coffee shop called Macy’s. We found a random phone booth and all tried to jump in. It made for a lot of laughs, and really fun pictures.
This is such a special little kid. I can’t even explain how much he lights everything and everyone up.
And isn’t the ground the coolest ever?
We went to Macy’s for coffee- we’ve heard it’s the best coffee in the nation. And it was SO good!
Goofing off and taking random pictures of each other was definitely on the agenda.
I have too many pictures to post here. I could go on for days I’m pretty sure.
It was just so great to get away again this summer. We’ve been blessed with fantastic people in our lives who have taken such good care of us. People who have seen how stressed out Jason and I have been and who made it possible this summer for us to get out of town and forget about stress, money and the heat!
On top of the shopping, eating, belly laughing, and random photo shoots, it was the greatest to wake up to this view, these people and relax for a couple days.
I guess we got a vacation from our vacation after all!
A big thanks to Alex & Ryan for making this weekend so fun for us. You two are so giving- I know we, along with Andrea and Cody, are super grateful. I have a CD of all the pictures for all of you!
