There are moments when we reflect at how much the boys push the limits as far as patience and sometimes seeing the ugliness that shows up in ourselves that we never knew we had hidden. But it never changes that we all push through and find the glimmer of smiles somewhere. Even the smallest light is a light that shines through all the tough situations.
Earlier this year we took a quick break from work to drive to Huntington Beach to get out of the house
They loathe and love these install days LOL
Mat hard at work
Helping him make 10000 petals

All the boys refused to get in the photo on a rare dinner at the B house =)

Haven't seen them in almost 3 years since I left Hawaii..it was so nice to see her again and it's like no time has passed
So nice to see Aaron in Miami..even when he's a mile away we see him across the country! LOL (photo credit: Aaron)
Earlier this year she came to visit with her family and I got to see her for a few hours..oh how I missed her
We're gearing up for a pretty hectic January but looking forward to the time we do get to do road trips and camping! We have big plans this coming year. Can't wait for all the activities we'd like to do as a family. And spend more quality time enjoying the good moments. The boys need more outdoor time and we do too. Reconnecting with nature is so important and disconnecting from the world of electronics is even more important.
Can't wait for the return of these family bike rides
Merry Christmas ya filthy animals!
Baking in between work breaks sometimes clears the head and produces yummy apple coffee cake
