Camp BK / Point Mugu State Park

We are happy to be back from our 2nd camping trip this month. Point Mugu State Park (also very close to our house) was a nice change from Malibu Creek campsite. It was right off the HWY 1. Even though the campsite was nested in a canyon, we were so close to both ocean and a canyon hiking trail. Satchi and Coco both love being at the water and visiting beach 3 times over 2 nights stay was priceless. 

I love that camping requires physical work. Pitching a tent, cooking dinner and all the activities require doing things. Staying outdoor does get us dusty but being there together makes all the little things that might usually bother us at home go away. 

By now girls are used to sleeping in the tent. We had our Snug Attack friends visit us again at our campsite on the 2nd night so they were able to fully experience the "childhood" at camp (and thank you Dale for the home brew beer:). I think they found a forgotten toothpaste behind the bush and made bubbles with it by rubbing the paste against a big rock with water. Yep. A total chaos and freedom at the camp:) 

It looks like this will be the last camping trip for a while because of our busy schedule in the fall. (sniff...) We can't wait to book more camping trips in the sumer of 2016!

our days in Michigan.

Satchi and I had great time in Michigan. We always do... every year. Susan's house is beautifully curated and I love discovering little corner vignette everywhere. In some way, this trip felt more like a vacation than any other recent trips. Maybe because I took a giant nap one day... maybe because Satchi is getting the age that is easy to travel. Or maybe it's just the Michigan air filled with layers of green. 

I loved our treasure hunting adventure visiting local vintage/antiques stores. I have heard that Midwest still has a lot of vintage artifacts left to be discovered and I think it was so true. I am always hunting for unique artifacts to use as the shop props and containers. Happy to report that I came home with a carry-on bag full of goodies and a parcel that was shipped from Michigan. 

The rest of time... we spend hours chatting and journaling together. Celebrating special birthdays and playing "cone hole" (do you know this game? It's addicting.) I also had a nice chat with Susan consulting about what is next for Baum-kuchen. She and I used to work a lot on projects together (pre Baum-kuchen) and I love getting her feedback. I think our 5 year plan is getting shaped nicely. 

I am already dreaming of our next year's visit. I am sure Coco will join our party:)
