We feel pretty lucky to have friends without kids who still want to hang out with us. We have no illusions about how life with a kid is more work than our carefree single lives but we will be the first to say we have never laughed so much since Theo came into our lives.
It takes special friends to want to travel with a toddler that is not their own. Mary and Joel (here,here and instagram) are those people. They were our amazing wedding photographers 4 years ago (photos here) and we have been friends ever since. They are also fellow small space dwellers, switching between 400 sqft and 150sqft spaces or adventuring out of their van. Endlessly talented and inspiring, they were off duty this weekend but like most artists they never really take a break. They managed to capture the most beautiful real moments with just their iPhones and of course generously shared them with us.
Here is our long weekend away through their eyes…
Too many car rides
Theo loving the windy ferry ride.
