Scenes from a weekend // Seven Oaks Resort

 Angelus (near lake arrowhead)

So our little bus made it up the mountain - It's very first trip since we bought it a few months back, and it did just fine. Exciting to think of all the new places it might go from here. Now that we know it's able and willing.

This weekend felt like a dream. These kinds of camp scenarios I imagined only existed in the backwoods of some far off, unmarked territories. Not the case, it turns out. Parked just above the river, nestled among a heap of shady pines with a big group of friends in honor of an end of summer wedding celebration we enjoyed some light rain, the boys fished and hiked until the storm took shape and the thunder set in. Leon hid (with tears) until it was through. After the ceremony it was music at the campfire, roasted marshmallows and wine.

A perfect way to properly christen the combi I'd say.

Can't wait to get back.


  1. oh what a great spot, i must go. so happy the bus (and you) made it up the mountain! i love the shot of leon crying through the window! so awesome! not that he was crying but the photo.

    what a perfect location for the wedding. i bet it was a beautiful celebration. i hope you got some pictures of whitney, i'd love to see them next time i see you, as i know they will not be shared via social media ;D

  2. looks like a perfect spot! we're in major need of a camping trip since we opted out of our usual {extra long} on this summer. "bookmarking" your post :).

  3. Seriously Jessica - I love this setup - what an amazing weekend and the orange VW camper van just rocks:) And love the pic of Leon in the van :)Hope you are well, and enjoying life sweets,

  4. Oh how I'd love to know all the past adventures that little van has been on... and the future ones it has in store. What a life. I kinda want to die and come back as it... I know, weird. But what a beautiful adventure. Captured wonderfully!

  5. I thought about that too , Ashley - if only we could hear it's life stories. That's the fun in old cars, right?

    and thank you for the complement.


  6. Positively idyllic! I love your little bus!

  7. I have always wanted a bus like yours and be able to drive cross-country in it stopping where we please. Your trip looks magical!

  8. You never think about your skin like you do once you're growing a baby.
