It's Always Sunny in California Pt.1

We had been hoping to travel out to California for awhile now to see friends & family, but the opportunity seemed bleak after a string of (expensive) car issues this year.

So, when Wayde had the chance to head that way on tour with Parlours, it seemed like the best option for me to fly out with Ruby to see their band perform in LA and spend some time with our dear friends, the Kretzu's.

I was a little apprehensive about traveling alone with a one year old, but I am so grateful we made the trip. The break was just what we needed. I will be posting photos over the next couple days from our short time in California—too many fun times to pack into one post!

Would you believe this is what happened when Ruby & Mason saw each other for the first time since Mason moved back to California in February? Pretty epic reunion, if you asked me!

The Kretzu's live within minutes of Newport Beach, so we spent a good chunk of our first day in Orange County by the water (and got the sunburns to prove it).

It was definitely a proud moment for me to take Ruby to the ocean for the first time. I know she won't remember it, but I didn't get to see an ocean until I was 20 years old. I'm kind of jealous of anyone who gets to live so close to one. If that's you, please don't take it for granted.

We just HAD to dip baby girl's toe in the water for the full experience. Not so much of a fan...
We lost Ruby's beloved red tag blanket along this walk, which still makes my heart hurt a little. Not that it was anything super special, but I have so many pictures of her with it that I can't help but associate her with that silly piece of fabric. Thankfully, Wayde's co-worker that made it for her has got another one in the works since we shared with her how much Ruby enjoyed it.

Post-sun Wayde rocking a farmer's tan before the big gig. Stayed tuned for Part 2 in which Parlours play the famous Viper Room in West Hollywood...xx


  1. Awwww, love these photos! Ruby is a such a doll. I love that shot of her dipping her toes in the ocean. And, Erin, I love your hair up with those fun hankies. I need to try that on my hair. Miss you, girl.

  2. LOVE these photos! Looks like so much fun. Ruby is such a doll and I love your hair in those tied up hankies. Miss you, girl.
