Last week, for our summer vacation we took the kids to the Outer Banks for a week. Seven days in one beach house with five adults and four kids four and under is a little bit of insanity, but we survived and had a good time while we were at it.

So thankful for the cross and the empty tomb! Such good news is reason to celebrate each year at Easter. This year we made a trip to Raleigh to visit family and spend some special time together.

Wednesday was my birthday, one of my favorite days of the year. That birthday feeling and how I celebrate has changed a bit over the years, but I still always look forward to the special day. This year, obviously, is my first one to celebrate with Hudson. He didn’t sing to me or get me a card or anything, but he, Bart, and I had some fun adventures that made it a lovely, extended birthday celebration.

This weekend, Bart, Murphy, and I hopped in the car and drove down to Raleigh for a bit of a “last hurrah” car trip before the baby gets here. We don’t envision making any grand trips from here on out, as one just never knows. But we did want to take the opportunity to see some friends and family while traveling is slightly less complicated.

Bart and I spent Thanksgiving down in Raleigh (where else?) with family last week. Since his sister is due with her second in January, she won’t be able to travel over Christmas, so we decided to all meet there for Thanksgiving/Christmas holiday festivities.

Last week, I had Tuesday off for Veterans Day. I’m a little late to the game to say thank you to all those who have served in various ways for our country, but they deserve recognition all year and not just one day, so thank you all for your service and sacrifice!

Veteran’s day is not one of those holidays that Bart gets off from his work; however, after working really hard during October on a project, he decided to take one day off to relax a bit and do something fun while I was off as well. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to check another local Washington, DC attraction off our list. We tossed around a number of good ideas and finally landed on the Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center near Dulles Airport in Virginia.

On the morning of November 10, 2012, Bart and I saw the sun rise one last time from our driveway in Erie, Colorado as we got in our cars and began the three day, 1700 mile trek to our new home in Washington, D.C. Two years used to seem like an eternity, but I still feel “new” to my job, our church, and the area in general even 24 months after our relocation. Nevertheless, a lot has happened for Bart and me since we began this new chapter in 2012.
