Is your list of need to do's as long as mine? On my current list....Download pics from the last 3-4 months...then I can blog. Because, blogging without pics, unless you are hysterical, is just plain boring =) In the meantime...random pics...
Pretty much self -explanatory...I will note that Shane went on Expedition Everest for the first time...and then went a whole bunch more times...we spent a good portion of the day there...probably one of our favorite rides!
At Thanksgiving time, we took the kids on a surprise trip to DisneyWorld. We made such great memories. This was Day 1 of 4...we spent at Epcot...it was a good, a little slower paced first day. It was such perfect weather...and the crowds were great. Gavin and I just loved to see Disney through the eyes of our first timers...Joel and Camille. Walt really knew what he was doing...Disney is amazing.
2012 was an election year. And I think one our children will not forget any time soon. We were very pumped about the Republican candidate, Mitt Romney. He would have been so good for our country and the economy. And, we voted. The nation voted. Unfortunately, Mitt was not given the opportunity to help our country. It is pretty disappointing. But, at least we used our right to vote, we gave it our all....we supported in all the ways we could. And now...its in God's hands. Hopefully, the next 4 years are not a complete disaster.
We went to two Romney rallies here in Pensacola...one with John McCain and one with Mitt Romney himself. I think they were wonderful experiences for the kids to see how this all works and how the politicians in our country effect our lives and our families. Perhaps it inspired them with future aspirations =)
In September, we signed the kids up for a surf competition here locally. The gulf provided a sweet surprise when we got there that morning...the waves were great...seriously one the best days we have seen here. The boys were nervous...but kind of stoked. Shane went first...and rocked it, with a little of Gav's help (a parent in the water was required for his age group). He ended up getting 1st place in his division. Christian's first heat went well...he placed high enough to progress to the next round. Christian ended up doing well, even though he was in a older age group...placing 3rd overall. They are both super stoked for next years competition, setting their sights on ripping up this gulf coast surf! They know this is a good place to start before we get back to SoCal surf where the competition might be a little more fierce.
Gav was in heaven with his surfer boys...and also couldn't wait for the competition to end so he could have a little piece of the decent waves!
