When I was a little girl my dad used to take my brother Mikey and I to Placerita Canyon Park.
We loved to pack lunches and hike up to the waterfall.
We'd spend hours in the nature center looking at the animals and flowers.
We have hundreds of pictures of us up there through the years.
Even as we grew older we still loved going and hiking the same trails.
When my dad passed away I was really sad thinking my girls would never get to share those memories with him.
He would have loved my girls.
Probably even more than he loved me :)
And he would have loved my nephew Brandon.
He is a mini version of my brother.
When we decided to meet up at Placerita with our kids I knew that my dad would be so happy knowing that we were sharing his love of Placerita with our kids.
Making our own memories.
Taking pictures of our kids in the same spots we did many years ago.
