Life: Rewind & Fast Forward

I've got a about six months of life to try and catch up on and rather than tackle each event in multiple posts (which I'm so great at doing, haha) I figured it is best to do a quick recap and get back up to speed. In short, we've been doing very well and adding many fun chapters to our book of life.

August: Girls' Trip to Vegas for fun, food and a full night of uninterrupted sleep!

September: Nature hikes in the mountains

October: Trip to a Petting Zoo and Pumpkin Patch

October: A woodland themed first birthday party for our one-year-old

October: A Traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony

November: A trip to the Caribbean

November: Celebrating love at a family wedding 

December: Annual Christmas Tree Hunt

December: A trip back to my hometown for a surprise birthday party and some winter sledding

December: Warm and cozy Christmas with our extended family

December: A prehistoric party for our three year old palaeontologist

Phew! So that's the gist of it. Of course we had plenty of other not so exciting daily life activities, our share of illness to battle and events where a camera was not in attendance but these were some of our highlights. The New Year brings a slightly slower pace of life (at least for now) so we will be doing our best enjoy it as much as we did 2014!
