A Whole Year in One Single Post

5 Jan

I love being able to look back through the blog to see the things we have done and how much Miss H has changed!

We started off the year with Dad visiting and two trips to the Udvar Hazy Air and Space Museum.

Look at that little face.

And, Mom and I went to San Francisco.

We spent a lot of time at playgrounds and parks.

Somebody turned 2 years old and had a blast at her party.

Kerry’s dad came to visit. And, Kerry got to drive a duck boat.

We discovered the very cool koi pond at the National Arboretum. We need to go back there soon!

We got to ride Thomas the Train in Baltimore.

We got to see all kinds of sheep at the Sheep and Wool Festival.

Miss H discovered the joys of playing with the hose washing the car.

We moved her out of her crib and it was a tad traumatic for everyone.

Miss H fell in love with the pool and we spent most of our summer there.

And, summertime means ice cream time.

Mom joined me on another business trip and we headed to Philadelphia.

By June, she still did not like her own bed and decided sleeping at the bottom of ours was much more comfortable.

Also, June brought us another great anniversary 🙂

Dad and Kathy came to visit us from Vermont.

A trip to the Baltimore Aquarium was so fun!

More summer fun included boat rides, swim lessons, the sprayground, and a memorable trip to Dinosaur Land.

Mom and I went to Boston for my work. Have you spotted a trend yet?

And, I won’t forget the earthquake.

Post-Hurricane Irene was nice weather.

All of a sudden it was fall and the weather started to cool off.

Best picture of the year might go to Aunt Leigh 🙂

Montpelier Farms was a nice way to start off the season of pumpkins, fall leaves and of course, football.

In September, Miss H still did not like her new bed but she was sleeping soundly so we did not care.

Dad and Kathy came back on their way from Vermont to South Dakota.

We loved Cox Farm and picked the perfect day to go explore. Miss H thinks all farms have slides now.

Another favorite fall tradition revisited.

We were so excited when Leigh and Chip got engaged! Wedding will be in just a few months.

We got to visit a llama farm.

We enjoyed a nice trip to Williamsburg and I went back to Boston. Thanksgiving was great and the weather was unseasonably warm.

The weather stayed great even though Christmas was quickly approaching.

I finished the semester with perfect grades 🙂 Christmas did arrive and it was fantastic!

We finished off the year with a trip to the zoo and a cozy nap.

Thanks for following along on our adventures and hope you have a fantastic 2012.

A very busy 2008

29 Dec

2008 has flown by and we have been busy! I started thinking about all the things we did and was amazed. Here is a short recap:

We started 2008 engaged and in the details of planning a wedding. I started a new job. Kerry stayed at the Red Cross. Leigh, Mom and I went to Niagara Falls. Kerry went to Las Vegas with his guy friends. I went to Williamsburg with my girl friends. Kerry went to Panama. Kerry turned 36. Kerry went skydiving. I turned 34. We went to Sanibel. We laughed and swam and played volleyball with our family and friends. We relaxed. We got married. The minister lost our marriage license and we thought we were going to have to get married again. He found it. We went to Boston. We were tourists. We went whale watching. We saw the Red Sox play at Fenway and the Nationals play in DC. We got pregnant. We visited Dad and Kathy in South Dakota. We remodeled our kitchen. I changed my name. We found out we were having a girl. We saw some great movies. We combined cellphone plans. We had 14 baby related doctor appointments and got to see her on 10 different ultrasounds. We realized we were going to be parents.  We voted. We hosted Thanksgiving. We welcomed a new nephew and three new second-cousins into the world. We laughed a lot and cried a little (mainly over happy things and one toe-stubbing incident). Kerry was happy to see the Vikings make it to the playoffs. We were both happy to see the start of my third trimester. We started to set-up a nursery. Kerry assembled a crib and painted furniture. We looked at life insurance and set-up a 529 college savings plan. We realized 2009 was coming quickly!

We hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and that you have a great 2009.
