Summer Recap

"summer, summer, summertime
time to sit back and unwind" - DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince

You may have noticed that we took a blogging break over the summer.  I'm not someone who feels like I need to go back and blog about every event.  It gets a little burdensome if I start thinking we have to blog about everything or go back and "catch up" with blog entries.  So, I just blog when I feel like it. This summer we were traveling and it was nice to enjoy family, friends, and things other than the computer.

That being said, it seems like it would be nice to give a quick recap of the highlights of the summer.  We decided last minute to pack up the kids and head to the U.S.  The idea was a little daunting with a pregnant, nauseous, and gimped (in crutches) Yvonne and 30+ hours of travel with 3 kids 3 years old and under.  But, we decided to do it anyway.  Yvonne was a superstar and the kids did... well better than you would normally expect.  The long going/coming and jetlag was still exhausting, but overall the summer trip was a success.

I would like to apologize to all the friends and family we didn't see.  Some we promised to see, some we had hoped to see, and some we didn't even tell we were in the neighborhood.  With the immobile state of the family and all the commitments we already had planned, we ended up missing some of you.  We will try and catch you on the next trip.  Thanks for understanding... we really did want to see you.

The highlights:
JaNae's Wedding

The Trampoline

Hanging with Grandma Price

Ok, this concludes some of the highlights.  There were many more, but it is a good recap.  A big THANK YOU! goes out to all the family and friends that let us crash their house, cabin, hangar, boat, or party.  We had fun.
