While everything in 2018 didn’t go as planned, we had many good times. One of our best family qualities is our ability to make the most of what we have & where we are. Forever grateful for our adventures, we know how to turn even a simple #Walmart run into a treat. Best time ever!
Let’s recap our 2018 adventures!
Soon after returning from a last minute road trip to Toledo, Ohio, snow took over our area. There was so much more than we’d anticipated! In order to fully explore, Johnny attached the girls’ wagon to our lawnmower & chauffeured us around. (See it here) Most innovative dad ever!
After school, we decided to take over the park & then try a new-to-us restaurant. (See it here)
Things didn’t slow down in April. First up, was a visit to downtown Mebane for an event that showcases local artists. Then, we witnessed the demolition of an historic building, tried a local ice cream shop, got a behind-the-scenes tour of the Southern Women’s Show, took a spontaneous road trip to Columbia, SC, attended an 80s party, registered Vivia for Kindergarten, & attended Alora’s Science Olympiad competition. WHEW!
A Tai Chi class, hardcore fitness, the NC State Fair, Halloween school festivities, & did someone say zombies??!! Halloween is one of our FAVE holidays if you didn’t know. When we were invited back to Xtreme Park Adventures to check out allll of their creepy, zombie fun, we couldn’t get there fast enough!
We made it! A science project, media event, Snowpocalypse, & Christmas gifts filled the month. The year’s end was both challenging & magnificent. While Christmas magic is always around during December, we lost a very dear loved one. It was really hard for us, but we managed to hold on to our holiday spirit.
WHAT A YEAR!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for your support always. It means much more than could ever be expressed! How exciting to enter 2019 with new adventures to come. We hope you’ll make yourself at home here on the blog & hang out with us on the channel (Thanks for subbing btw!). With God’s help, there’s much more fun, adventure, & family headed your way. <3
Happy New Year.
