Our year in photos:
We rang in the new year in Texas with Matt, Lindsay, and their new babe. Santa brought us (Tucker included) snowshoes for Christmas, so we spent a lot of time in the snow.
This was the only picture I took in February, that didn't involve a classroom full of kids. We must have spent most of February sitting on the couch watching the Olympics. We did manage to make it out of the house for a Valentine's Day dinner.
In March we found out that Andrew would be working in Oregon for the summer. I spent the month deciding if I would be leaving my job to join him. Loved the kiddos and my co workers, but it turned out to be the best decision ever.
All I remember is wonderful weather. We spent a lot of time outside.
We packed up the Vibe and drove 1800 miles to Hillsboro, Oregon. We miss life in Oregon, and reminisce about it often. BEST SUMMER EVER.
Cannon Beach. Mount Hood. Seattle. Pacific Ocean. Portland. Need I say more??
July was a busy month. We spent the 4th of July in the San Juan Islands, I visited Emily in California, we entertained my parents for a week, and I ran my first duathlon.
We celebrated our 2nd anniversary aboard the Mt. Hood Railroad. Andrew's parents and Aaron visited for a week. Did I mention it was the BEST SUMMER EVER.
We began the long drive back to the Twin Cities. Although we loved life in Oregon, it was nice to be home.
O-B-A-M-A! We waited in line for 3+ hours to get a quick glimpse at our president. Well worth the wait.
Nothing appears to have happened in November, as this is my only photo for the month.
We spent December celebrating Christmas with our families. We also had a farewell party for my brother, who will be spending the next two years in India working for the State Department. Bon Voyage!
