Today I'd like to share some of our California vacation photos, if you'd like to see! After a weekend full of packing up our house, it was fun to take a little mind vacation as I wandered back through these photos. I'll be posting them in different groups, sometimes one day by itself, other times several days together. Today, just one perfect, relaxing, beautiful California day.
After safely arriving at my aunt and uncle's beautiful home and getting a good night's sleep, our first stop was in Coloma where we explored the old mining areas, admired the golden hills, and panned for gold in the American River.

Looking forward to sharing more photos in the coming weeks! Happy Monday :)
