We got a brand spanking new car! We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! Can you tell that I am excited! It's a Subaru Impreza and it is awesome.
Unlike our last "new" car that we got, this one is actually brand new and is so much nicer. It's nice being able to afford better things. :)
The only sad part of this is that we had to get rid of our truck to make room for the car. That truck has been with us since we got married. It was a gift from Micah's parents and it was a huge gift because neither one of us had a car before. It couldn't fit all of us, so it made more sense to keep the Aveo. It did help with a down payment, though, so it was still a blessing for us.
Out with the old, in with the new. Looking forward to many adventures.
I didn't get many pictures this year, but the kids still enjoyed themselves. I'm happy that my family still chooses to celebrate Australian holidays. I hope my kids will learn to love this side of their culture as well. :)
I have my very own bugle boy!
(P.S. I hate hearing my voice on camera!)
Lila really enjoyed the passion fruit cupcakes. Can you tell?
Another trip to Thanksgiving Point. Even though our pictures mostly all end being the same with every trip, I can't help but take pictures. My kids are changing so quickly, I don't want to miss anything!
Lots of babies in the Spring!
This time we decided to feed the chickens. The kids love feeding the fish in Ashton Gardens, so they were very excited to feed an animal in Farm Country, too.
Of course the kids wanted to do the pony ride. Brighton was not happy about waiting in line for this, but then of course was all smiles on the horse. As soon as his turn was done, though, he was again not happy. Oh, my little boy!
Lila was good to go all by herself.
They had some really cute baby bunnies in Farm Country that day.
I'm sure many more trips to Farm Country will happen.
Our kids really love to watch nature specials... something they got from their dad, although I definitely enjoy them, too. We like to take the kids to go see animals whenever we can. We were lucky enough to have tickets to the aquarium, so we could do just that.
We've been several times now, but I swear, there is something new every time and the kids just LOVE it. It seriously never gets old.
There's too much to explain with words, so I'm just going to let the pictures do most of the talking. :)
Lila doing her best fishy face.
I know you can't see what's going on in these pictures very well, but I'm including them anyway.
