We are a family with an appetite for travel and adventure! We are always busy planning and creating an array of exciting adventures to experience together as a family.
Hope you enjoy following us!
We have been busy, but a relaxed busy. Met one of John's best friends, Jeff, which was nice cuz all I hear is "Jeff this", and "Jeff that", and the "You would LOVE him!" Well, he was right (You hear that John, you were RIGHT), Jeff is just as nice as John claimed.
Then we spent the day on another one of his friends house boat, which was pretty fun as well.
My friend has a newborn!!! Hung out with her and her precious Lillie. I want one!
Boys are leaving for a week, depressing, and possibly 2 weeks, more depressing. John and I have plenty things to keep us busy. Doing some DIY stuff around the house, have a friend coming to visit for 4th of July, then my other bestie coming to find a house!! Fun times in store for us.
This past weekend was our baby shower!! We decided to do it a bit early because I am one of those over-organized, over-prepared types. It was hosted by my best friend Kindle and my sister Bianca.
I told Kindle I wanted a slight winter wonderland pink theme since it is so close to Christmas and this is what I walked in to! It was absolutely beautiful, and we were joined by all our best family and friends, we appreciate everyone that made this such a special day for us.
This game was to guess how big I was and believe it or not the winner was Ethan!!
He definitely knows his Mummy! The chocolate diaper game. (It was Johns first shower, he must've thought we were all crazy). Getting ready for presents!! (The boys got to open them all). Kindle surprised the boys with a gift each.
It was a shirt with their picture saying "I'm the biggest Brother" and "I'm the big Brother" for the hospital.
Most thoughtful thing ever!!! I wish I could relive this day over and ov…
I can honestly say that I miss blogging. Facebook "memories" option has made me realize how nice it is to be able to look back at our family life and adventures.
I will (eventually) try and get caught up on the past few months, because we all know that I have photographed each and every moment, but for now I will start with Christmas.
We started shopping later than normal but managed to get everything done with time to spare to relax and enjoy the season.
Mummy came from England, I did not realize it but this is only her first Christmas with Amalia! We spent the day with great family friends, Peter, Debbie and their family. It has been a tradition for many years to do Christmas and/or Thanksgiving with them.
As per usual we had Santa Jeaux come and visit along with all the kids friends. It was such a nice reunion not only with our friend Santa, but the kids miss their friends dearly it is always a great occasion to get them together again. I appreciate all the other m…
I have promised the kids that once spring came around we can plant a garden since in our top back yard we have 2 big beds.
It was s a lot of work to clean out the beds it was full of debris that took us a long time to sift out, but it was oh so worth it!
I wish I had before and after pictures to show you just how bad it was, but I didn't think about it because I was in full on mission mode.
We still need to plant the second bed, it has been a bit rainy, and to be completely honest I am terrified of worms, caterpillars and snakes.
My community Facebook page has been posting about copperheads everywhere so I am hyper paranoid when I am out there, but I hope to get around to it soon!
