Last week my my husband, daughter, and I went on a little mini-vacation to Jackson, New Hampshire with our good friends Ryan, Shawn, and their two little ones Maggie and Liam. Ryan and I are very close friends from college, and we used to dream of the day we’d be able to take a little vacation like this with our family. We rented a house in Jackson for two nights, and took the kids on their first visit to Storyland. While we were there, Ryan asked if I would mind taking some family photos for them, and of course this was something I was so happy to do. Here are some of my favorites from their short shoot, and a few from our trip (don’t worry, I won’t bore you with TOO many family vacation photos – just a few!)
The home we stayed at was gorgeous and perfect for a trip with young kiddos. We will definitely be staying here again!
If you haven’t figured it out quite yet, I’m a bit of a sap and this picture just warms my heart so much. I am so proud of my best friend and her adorable family.
Storyland was quite the adventure! I was shocked at how easy it was with three young kids, and how excited the kids got about it while we were there. I can’t wait to return in another year or two and see what my munchkin likes so much next time.
And these are my two most favorite people in the world – my Jim and Molly.
And of course you can’t venture to the White Mountains without going up a mountain or two. Unfortunately we could only see the clouds at the top of this peak, but with the lack of scenery I got to focus on these adorable subjects instead! Seeing my kiddo with Ryan’s kiddo is the craziest thing – it’s like a little her and a little me. They were instant friends on our trip and it almost makes me tear up (again, super sap here – but is really cool).
And here’s the whole gang!
Ryan and Shawn, thank you for inviting us to vacation with you and your amazing family! We love you guys and I can’t thank you enough for asking me to take pictures of you and your kiddos.
