Another Week In Photos

Happy Saturday! I had hoped to write this post yesterday, but clearly that did not happen. I did however enjoy the last day of our family vacation. I am really not ready to get back to the daily routine, but the kids are. They are already asking to go to dance and gymnastics class. At least they like the things that we do.

 

Since this week covers most of our vacation be prepared to be bombarded with photos!

Grandma and Grandpa took us all on a Christmas train ride. Hot chocolate and cookies, along with songs and a story made for a great time. It was also the first time that either child was on a train. At first the trucks outside were more exciting, but slowly we got over that.

Mommy and daddy snuck away for a day in Tahoe to go snowboarding. It wasn’t the best snowboarding of my life, but considering I went all of ZERO times last year, it was great! I am also sure that the kids had a great time with the grandparents.

There were a few fun playground play times on the trip.

Hang time with counsins or second cousins, which ever.

And then we drove out to San Francisco. It was the first time there for both the kids and I.

That famous crooked road. You know, as seen on the travel channel? Lombard St or something like that. Beautiful view.

I remembered that this was all set up when we left. The plan was for the kids to find it when we got home. Arriving at 3:30 in the morning, I hoped that the kids did not, see it. Why? Because the mommy and daddy needed to sleep.

 

The next morning was priceless. S’s family talks about birthday seasons. This year the kids had a Christmas season, and it isn’t over yet. They have uncles still to come by. So do I take down the decorations, or wait until all gifts are opened?

Proof that they like it! Since taking this photo I have already changed the setup of the play kitchen. It all fits together better now.

 

Next up, a table …… well soon.

    Great pictures, Gwen! Thank you for sharing them, and the synopsis of your vacation as a family…I can only imagine how wonderful it was for you, Steve and the children to have that time together, and away from home. Bob and I did the same kind of thing…it was great for us to spend time with Marc, Amanda, and Zachary, and to see some sights that were new to us, as well. Happy New Year to all of you!!
