Living Abroad - Flash Back to 2011

I finally found some video footage from New Zealand 2011.  I had been looking everywhere in all of my back up drives until I finally found a back up drive in a box that I didn't even know I had!

Luckily there was some video footage from when we lived in New Zealand.  Of course the video is not high quality, but its still fun to see what we were doing back then.

Here is the post from back then = Our Trip Up North

New Years Weekend 2018

2018 is here!  Another year has flown by and we are continuing to enjoy life.
We went to Pismo Beach for the New Years weekend.

  Traveling with kids is not for the weak!  People use to tell me a vacation with kids is not a vacation and they are 100% right!  We had a great time, but it wasn't the vacation where you are sipping a margarita reading a book in the sun ha ha.

Pismo beach is beautiful and I am so happy we were able to enjoy the outdoors.

We enjoyed:
  • RUNNING ON THE BEACH
  • WALKING IN THE TOWN
  • PLAYING IN THE DUNES
  • DIGGING IN THE SAND
  • EATING SAND (CALVIN!)
  • PLAYING GAMES WITH FRIENDS
  • HAVING A BON FIRE
  • MONARCH BUTTERFLY GROVE
  • SURFING (GRANT)
  • WE DIDN'T ENJOY THE DRIVE (SO MUCH SCREAMING)






























 NEW YEARS EVE
 NEW YEARS DAY

HELLO 2018!!!

Christmas 2017

We went up to my parent's house the day before Christmas Eve for a neighborhood party.  That night was the most beautiful sunset, maybe ever?   Anyways we really enjoyed it!



 Everyone started to arrive around 6pm for drinks and snacks!






 On Christmas Eve morning our good friend did a photo shoot of the kids.  It is so hard to get a good photo of a child crying and in constant motion!  She is so talented because every time we get a beautiful photo of the kids.

 This is what was really going on!  So CRAZY!!!

Christmas Eve night my mom and I went for a drive up the street to see an awesome house!
 They win for the best decorations!

That night we had a special operation, while the kids slept we converted the old bike for Calvin and got them ready for the morning.

 Christmas morning was like a tornado of wrapping paper as the kids ripped through everything!
Everyone was very happy after they got all the presents opened.


 Here is my only attempt at getting a photo of the kids by the tree!



 It didn't work!


 Then Santa came to visit on the Fire Truck.



When all the celebrating was over we headed home Christmas night and man was it nice to relax.

It took me the next 2 days to get everything back in order and my house is still a mess.
