A Vacation To Remember

Want to avoid the after Christmas blues?  Book a family vacation!  It was truly something to look forward to this January.  After Christmas was over and the New Year had passed, I set my mind on our beach vacation.  We booked our trip for the 7th of January to the 13th.  Six whole nights and seven days in the glorious beach paradise of Samara, Costa Rica.  We had been to Samara twice before, but could not wait to go back and explore all that the region had to offer.  And this trip, we took full advantage of our time and did a few fun activities.  It was really time and money well spent!

Keeping With Tradition: NYE and NYD

For the last 4 years, we have made it a family tradition to celebrate the impending new year at the amusement park.  December 31st was the perfect day to head to the park this year.  The weather was perfect and there were no lines for any of the rides.  It was just the best day filled with family fun and thrilling rides, a perfect way to spend New Years Eve day.

New Year's Eve night proved to be a night to remember with good music, good food and a few good friends.  It was the perfect way to end the year and begin anew in 2018.

Lots To Celebrate

The Holiday season has officially come to an end with Christmas now a memory and the second day of the new year about to come to a close.  It has all just been a whirlwind, a wonderful time filled with merriment and wonder.  I just love everything about Christmastime and am one of those people sad to see it go.  But with every ending comes a new beginning and I have to say I am excited for what the new year has in store for our family. 

The kids start a new school and a new chapter in their academic lives.  My 17 year old moves onto the 10th grade, a milestone in itself.  And my husband gets a full taste of what his new position has to offer.  I too will have a lot to think about as far as what I want to do this year.  My baby boy will be off at preschool and that will leave me with some free time to figure things out.  Things are changing but the changes are exciting and new and I cannot wait to see how 2018 will turn out.  Hoping it will be lots to celebrate and milestones to uncover.  So as I look forward to a new year, let me recap and look back at our 2017 holiday celebrations.  It was truly a season filled with many blessings.
