mt. boney is one of my favorite places in newbury park. i'm convinced i grew up in one of the prettiest places in alllllll of the world, i could be biased, but i truly think i did. i'm pretty lucky to have grown up in such an amazing place & to have this so close by. there are a ton of hikes, caves to get lost in (literally, be careful), a teepee, & rolling hills that happened to be the greenest i have ever seen while i was visiting. none of us could get over how beautiful it was. almost every time i go back to visit i try to do a little walk/hike on the boney trails, i think it is so much fun & cedar loves being able to be free & this trip was no different.
we went on my last full day in california with my mom, sister-in-law kristen, baby russy, ashley, johnny & millie & the kids loooooved it. it's so fun with these three boys being close in age, russy & cedar loved to follow johnny around, doing whatever he did. they threw rocks, played with sticks, ran & played in the tall grass & smelled flowers (mostly just cedar, he stops to smell almost every flower which is cute but annoying when you're on a path with a lot of flowers). being able to share my favorite places from my childhood with cedar is one of the best parts of being a mama, i love seeing cedar have these experiences & being able to relive childhood through him.
