First Day of School


This August the kids started preschool at a new school.  They are in the fun for fours class at Plum Canyon Elementary.  I was nervous for them to be in a new school with new friends, but the obviously were not.  They went in and made friends like they have been there for years.  It was great to see their comfort level.  It was a great was to start the school year.

Joseph’s Birthday

For Josephs birthday this year we decided to have a family beach day.  I was fun to play and spend time together having fun in the sun!


Dance, Soccer and Swim

This summer the kids started some fun activities. First Bridget started dance.  She is taking a ballet/tap class on Saturday mornings.  I have never seen a more excited little girl.  She loves her class and is full of so much joy when she is there.


Ethan started a soccer class.  He loves all the drills that they have the kids do.  It’s a great time for him.


Together the kids took swim lessons through the city.  Ethan loved it and was progressing everyday.  Bridget had a rough start, but at the end became more confidant in the water in the end.


Blueberry Picking

This summer we went blueberry picking for the first time.  It was a lot of fun and the kids had a great time.  I think that we ate as many as we picked, but we were able to bring home some supper yummy blueberries!  After we ate lunch and played around the farm play area.  We will defiantly be back next year.


Venice and London

Venice was the last port of our cruise.  I was blown away with how amazing it was.  The canals and the way the city was laid out was incredible.  The best part was a few of us took a gondola ride!  Wow, just wow.  It was so surreal.  It felt like I was in a movie.  The cruise was really a once in a lifetime opportunity that I was so grateful to be able to take.


After Venice we met my Dad and Brother in London to spend two days before Kimberly and I headed home.  We did some fast sightseeing, braved some rain, and got to see two incredible plays, Chicago and The Lion King.  It was a great trip!

Split, Croatia

Croatia was beautiful.  We visited the city of Split.  We spent some time walking around the town.  There was some fantastic buildings.  It was fun to walk around a an get a taste of the area.  After touring around, we found a great beach.  It was a Sunday so there were so many people, and tons of families.  The water was was knee deep for so far.  So it was a great place for kids and families to play.  Once you got past the shallow area it was deep enough to swim.  After the beach we tried some yummy ice cream to end the day.


Corfu, Greece

Corfu was different than that other Greek islands.  To me it looked more Italian than Greek.  We spent some time touring the old fortress in town.  It was massive and really cool.  We then found a little beach with a pier.  The water was so calm that if felt like we were swimming in a pool.  The pier even had a pool latter to get in and out of the water.  It was so warm and relaxing.
