We are about to embark on a seriously epic vacation. I get to see my mom and my sister, spend several days with my family in Florida, and see Miss Cecelia explode with surprise and delight. Wish us luck (I’ve never flown with two little ones before!) and stay tuned for many enchanting photos… Continue reading This. Is. Happening.
(More Wisconsin Dells photos from my iPhone. And Robbyn’s. And Mom’s.) Between this trip and our upcoming cabin visit, I am feeling very fortunate to be spending time with our families and having such fun doing it.
We just returned from a roooooad trip! Over the weekend we met my family (and assorted friends, cousins, etc.) in Wisconsin Dells. This was actually the first time I had been on a vacation with my family in SEVEN years. (What? HOW?) This was Cece’s first visit to the water parks in the dells and Rosie’s first time… Continue reading Wisconsin Dells
Now that all of these photos are in one post, I’m realizing I’ve depicted us as serious couch potatoes, Mrs. Potato included. Well, except Joe spent a significant time sweating in the heat with a chain saw on his week off while I wandered around taking photos… Continue reading Our week at the cabin via iPhone
All-inclusive resorts can almost ruin you for all future vacations. Every night we got the opportunity to try different cuisines at the resort’s restaurants (French, Japanese, Cajun, Mexican, seafood, etc.). Below are photos of one of our big group dinners. This one was at the the Japanese restaurant which was tasty as well… Continue reading A few nights in Mexico
These photos aren’t edited. The ocean is really that beautiful and all of my in-laws are really that ridiculously good-looking. (No pressure or anything!). They are also adventurous as Eric, Kim, Rachel, and her friend Katelyn were brave enough to try para sailing. I was only brave enough to frolic… Continue reading Beachin’
As difficult as it was to tear ourselves away from the pool and the bar, we managed a group outing to Playa del Carmen one morning to browse the touristy shops, buy souvenirs, and check out the selection of cheap prescription drugs (just kidding, we couldn’t find any this time). Joe failed… Continue reading Playa del Carmen
Hola amigos! I’ve decided that of all the uncertain things in life, I can declare one thing with certainty. Life dealt me the most amazing hand when it comes to family. I’m already lucky enough to have a husband who still makes googley eyes at me. BUT, I’ve also gained a ridiculously kind and generous mother and… Continue reading Poolside in Mexico
We were in Duluth for less than 24 hours, so we just got a glimpse of the city. However, when the high temperature is only about 10 degrees for the entire weekend, sometimes a glimpse is… Continue reading Duluth Part 2
On Valentine’s Day, Joe pulled out the romantic big guns and told me that he had arranged a ski trip for us over the weekend in Duluth. I actually cried because I was so happy and excited. (I bet it’s really fun having an emotionally hysterical wife, right?) It had been three years since we had last gone skiing… Continue reading Duluth Part 1
