Off and running in 2016!

Well, we've jumped feet first in 2016! After a quiet couple of days around the new year, it was back to school and work for everyone. We're back in the mode of waking up early (not that that ever stopped), getting out the door, homework, and the crazy busy schedule. 

On the first day of the year, I took a picture of the kids to compare to last year. Big changes in the older two!

One day last weekend, I was going to get Grant out of his bed and boy was I surprised when I glanced into Ava's room and found her holding Grant. She had gotten him out of his bed all by herself. I asked her to show me how she did it and then we talked about not doing it again for safety reasons! Grant didn't seem to hate it though!

That same day the kids came to get me while I was cleaning and told me to come look at Grant. He had fallen asleep playing!

Zach's mom got Grant this adorable outfit with a bow tie! He looks ADORABLE! I think we're going to have to find him a bow tie for Easter and my sister's wedding!!!

The big kids were so ready to go back to school after having two weeks off. They were ready to see their friends and ready to get back to being out of the house!!

Reed was SO excited to wear his new sunglasses in that day!

Last week was a little hard adjusting back to the school schedule. The time off is always nice but getting back to the routine is as well. It was a long week but we made it. Thankfully this time of year is a little slower. It will pick back up as we get closer to the end of the year.

And in other exciting news, Zach and I are celebrating our 10 year anniversary this year. We are hoping to take a trip just the two of us this summer and are looking at somewhere in the Caribbean. I'd love to hear your suggestions on places you've been and loved! Doesn't this look heavenly??!?!

Okay, friends. Things might be a little slow around here as we don't have much going on but I'll write when I can and when I have something good to write about! :) I hope you all have a great week!


  1. We've been to Sandal's in Jamaica-Ochos Rios. We loved it, and would love to go back some day. I've heard a lot of good things about Excellence Resorts in Mexico too. I would love love love to take a trip just me and hubs!

  2. My hubby and I went to Bora Bora for 2 weeks on our 20th anniversary, 2 years ago. It was absolutely MAGICAL! We stayed in a hut over the was pure bliss! Worth every single penny and every minute of travel to get there (which is quite a task....let me know if you want more info on that, but like I said, TOTALLY worth it!)We stayed at the Hilton Bora Bora Nui.

  4. My husband and I went to Fowl Cay Resort in the Exumas, Bahamas June 2014. It was absolutely AMAZING! The pictures on the website (link below) don't lie, it really is that awesome. (I recapped our time on my blog if you want to see more detail than the websites provides)

  5. We stayed at Sonesta Great Bay (adults only) in St. Maarten and are going to Sandos Playacar in Playa del Carmen in March. My tip...... we booked both trips through and it was SO EASY and saved a ton of $$$. Lots of great resorts to choose from on there, can book your trip with or without airfare, and you can read reviews directly on the site.
