10 on 10 – August // Summer Living

I’m so happy to be sharing another 10 on 10 post! It’s been a few months since I’ve been able to play along, so I’m highlighting some of my favorite photos from June and July – get ready for an onslaught of images!

We’ve been living and loving all that Southern California has to offer! Quite a bit has happened the past couple few months – everything from first communion to beach time, cousin play dates to zoo visits, and everything in between! Here we go…

We celebrated my big girl’s first communion in the Catholic Church. What a beautiful spiritual passage for my sweet girl! And luckily, she was able to enjoy this lovely step in our faith with some of her closest friends!

Visiting the zoo with friends and cousins is always great fun! The zoo membership is a great value and we love being able to visit different zones every time!

And it wouldn’t be summer without some beach photos! Besides family and friend beach outings, my girls enjoyed a fantastic week of water sports camp – kayaks, catamaran, sailing and paddle boarding – they loved it all and already want to go back!

Food, rides and carnival games… expensive, but totally worth it! We were actually rained on – more like poured on for a while! But we still had a fabulous time!

My girls just adore their little cousin and we love spending time together! Whether they’re blowing bubbles, in the pool, at the zoo, relaxing, playing, or cuddling, it’s the best!

On one of our beach outings in Mexico, I grabbed these shots, knowing I’d want to eventually make stickers for my planner! What do you think? Connie Hanks Photography // // Sea Shell, quote, Shell Yeah! bokeh, pacific, ocean, beach, Connie Hanks Photography // // Sea Star, Starfish, quote, let your inner star sparkle, bokeh, pacific, ocean, beach,
