Half Birthdays and legitimate birthdays.

Lots of rain, but we still go for walks in our rain boots.

Mostly pictures of us sledding. Here are some shots from our recent trip to New Hampshire.

We opened some presents, destroyed the living room, and spent Christmas afternoon at the beach.

Some winter Sonoma County ‘sploring with the kids. Pretty sure those binoculars are backwards…

Putting up the Christmas tree, plus an intro to Chocolate Advent Calendars.

Some playground / park fun with Mimi and Pop Pop

A little pumpkin patch action with the girls. No long-sleeve shirts in October here.

We WERE going to go camping, but we decided to have a #staycation instead. Went to the beach, ‘celebrated’ Julia’s half birthday, and generally had a good time last weekend.

Julia’s half-birthday donut:

Some pictures from Anna’s 6th Birthday Party.

First day of Kindergarten for Anna, preschool for Julia!

We got a SoCo Regional Parks Pass this year - we are determined to see every park! All 54!

Anna tries on her new goggles for swim lessons.

Mostly pictures of us hiking.

And just like that we are back at the beach.

Julia and Erin's birthday, plus a visit from Nanny and Grandpa.

We visited the dirt pump track for the first time.

Foster Falls visit and 'hike.'

Sisters being silly, plus some pictures from the Tennessee Aquarium.

It has been a challenging couple of months. Sorry for the lack of pictures. Here you go!
