What is Moorpark Spelled Backwards?

Kraproom...get it? All jokes aside, I really do love to visit Nick's family in Moorpark! It was so nice getting away for a nice long three day weekend and spending it with amazing people. Nick's family is always warm and welcoming, and a blast to hang out with. Plus, they taught me how to play Phase 10, which is the best card game EVER!!!

One of my favorite things to do in Nick's hometown is going hiking in Wildwood. I had never been before, and let me tell you it was B-E-A-UTIFUL! We loaded up two dogs and three people into my car and headed out into the wilderness (kinda).

Not gonna lie...the trail totally kicked my booty. It was a tough little hike. But honestly, I would rather be getting in a tough work-out in the sun with fun people, then in a gym with strangers. Give me the sunshine any day of the week!
{Stumbled upon this cool tee-pee. What a great place for a Family Picture.}
At the bottom of the Mountain (giant hill? I dunno) was a cool little waterfall! It was so perfect and serene. I could probably build some kind of tent, or just live in that giant tee-pee, and never leave this place. They would allow that right? Could they stop me? Who is this "they" I am referring to? So many questions!

We also found a place where Dakota usually likes to go swimming so we let the dogs off the leashes. Dakota sprinted into the water, and Hudson followed behind. The problem was that Hudson didn't realized he was running into deep water (I think he thought it was just shiny blue land)....if it is possible for a dog to look shocked and terrified, that is what poor Hudson looked like. He then proceeded to panic and get out of the water as soon as he possibly could. Needless to say Nick and I could not stop laughing...
{One wet dog. He looks happy because he is back on land.}
{Two Happy Dogs!}

It was seriously a perfect day, filled with sunshine and laughter. Followed by a three hour nap due to exhaustion...I kinda looked like this guy...
