Weekend with Friends // Hike to Lake Spaulding

"I just need some time in a beautiful place to clear my head." I've been seeing that floating around the internet lately, and it definitely applies to our latest trip to Grass Valley. Our friends Sam and Christian are the new proud parents of a goldendoodle puppy. We spent the weekend celebrating a birthday and a baby shower, but this little man, Ranger, stole the show.  

The ten of us (eight couples and two pups) took a Sunday hike to Lake Spaulding.

We could not have asked for a more beautiful weekend. Jeffery even found a hundred dollar bill on the hike and treated everyone to lunch afterwards. So looking forward to our next trip up in May.
