In January we took a trip with Cari to visit New York. It was a short trip to see the sites so we were on the move! Times square was awesome and Garrett even got to go ice skating in Rockerfeller center. He even tried to help little Matthew ice skate! Of course traveling with Cari we had to see the Statue of Liberty - that was a must. We saw the massive hole where the World Trade Center used to be.
I took my kids on a short cruise to Ensenada / Catalina this past Easter break. This was really nice for us to get away together as a family. With us all moving in different directions sometimes it can be so hard to connect. Cortney's boyfriend Gabe went with us. You may remember him from Lou's funeral. Gabe played the guitar and sang "Amazing Rain" a take-off on Amazing Grace.
We just got through the one year make of Lou's death. It is so hard to be without him as he was our hero. We went through so much to get to where we were and our last few years together were fabulous! We came so far! I am glad that we were able to show our kids that marriage and family are a commitment the you work through together.
We wil be camping again this summer. We will be in Temecula for Memorial Day, Big Bear in June, our annual week long trip up north to Big Sur in July and a local trip up Azusa Canyon in August!
I will fill you in on the kids on the next "blog" I don't want this to turn into a novel! Love you all!
