IMG_20180820_115610.jpgWe spent a lovely week on the beach in Florida.  Ivan loves the sand and is beginning to like the waves and water so it still is a great place to relax. This time we found a tiny complex with about 25 unites right on the beach. We had a kitchen, outdoor tables to eat at, pool that over looked the beach with sand and water 5 steps below.

It was perfect. We took a few excursions to Kennedy Space Center, Daytona International Speedway and bowling. Ivan loved it all. I really enjoyed learning about all the space science at Kennedy and we ended up meeting another couple on the beach who used to work there so interesting to get inside stories.  We enjoyed both delicious seafood as well as simple meals prepped at our place. All in all a great relaxing vacation. Check out our video https://vimeo.com/286768881.

My parents had a celebration of 40 years of ministry that they asked my brother and I and our families to be a part of in Pennsylvania.  So we booked a flight to Harrisburg and arrived and headed to the party. We had a busy weekend of being together in a very eclectic house in Mt Gretna as well as spending time where my parents are parked with great family friends who have known me all my life.  The boys were in the pool as much as the rain held off and didn’t seem to mind the chilly water.  We hit up a few tourist stops before parting ways.

Nick and I then took a day to visit Baltimore, MD and hang out around the Inner Harbor area. We walked around and explored some local places and the free Baltimore Art Museum. We thoroughly enjoyed some great seafood while there then headed back to drop Nick off at the airport.

Ivan and I stayed a week longer so that I could visit with my dear friends from elementary school and a college friend in the area.  It was fun to reconnect and have play dates with kidos.  Ivan as always was excited to meet new friends and play as much as possible yet did really well when he was the only one as well.  He is such a great traveler.

We rounded off the trip by a visit to Roots Farmers Market and dinner with special family friends. It was great, but we were tired and ready to be home and see Nick again.

Better late than never, but I’m finally getting our blog update. We were able to be with Nick’s family over Easter.  His sister, Leia, and her kids from Italy were visiting so we all flew down to Phoenix, where his sister Abby lives, for the Easter weekend and beyond. Nick took a couple of days off work then worked from AZ for a couple of days. It was great to hang out with everyone.

My parents were still parked in AZ so we slept there and had breakfast with them, other than that didn’t really see them as Ivan would fall asleep before we got back for the night.  He had so much fun playing with all his cousins all day it wore him out.  We also highlighted the Zoo, Phoenix Science Center, playgrounds, parks and Abby’s pool.

So much fun!

We had the chance to go to Cabo for vacation in February.

It was not as warm as we thought it might be and we were all a bit sick, but otherwise it was relaxing and  nice to be in the sunshine.  Ivan enjoyed the sand and playing everyday on the beach.

Here’s a video of some picture. https://vimeo.com/260672986

Thankful for a place to come to feel warm and see beautiful sunset?

Today we traveled to Arizona, and I am so thankful for a travel buddy who is happy about getting up at 4 a.m. to get on airplane.

Shortly after vacation my nephew flew in to visit from Michigan.  Ivan had a blast playing with Silas.  They had fun swimming together, going to the playground, museum, creek, making and eating popsicles, reading Garfield and building forts.

The three of us flew together to Seattle where his parents and my parents met up and we all spent a week together in Birch Bay, WA.  My cousin was getting married in Bellingham so Nick flew up from work just for the weekend.  The boys really enjoyed the bay especially low tide when they could dig up rocks and shells and splash in the water.  The house we rented also had video games so they enjoyed playing against each other and the adults.

My cousin is an animal lover and her wedding shows that. Instead of attendants she had her beloved pets!  It was unique but fun to experience. Ivan loved watching the animals.
