Good-bye 2012

We had a great year.  Sure it was filled with typical ups and downs, but overall I have no regrets.  We took some amazing trips, made great memories, and had lots of fun.  I could say a bunch about everything, but that would take too much time.  So, here is our year in pictures!

January---the highlight was a trip to Louisiana for the Gumbo Cup.  Both Emma and Jonah competed and did great. 

February---One of my favorite months because of birthdays...mine and Samuel's!  Samuel got a big boy bike.  Emma and I also volunteered at a race and it was freezing cold. 

March---I ran my first marathon!  We took a trip to Beaver Creek Colorado and the kids loved skiing.  It was an amazing trip and I wish I could include all the pictures.

April---I met my running coach finally!  She was in Houston to compete in her first 70.3!  We ran a 5K race as a family for the second year in a row.  My grandma passed away so we took an unplanned trip to PA.  The good part was seeing cousins I rarely see.  It was bluebonnet season in Texas.  I also took my favorite picture of the year!

May---Samuel started playing soccer.  It was Mother's Day and we had a super fun backyard day!

June---I ran Zooma Annapolis 13.1 and had lots of fun.  Father's Day happened.  It was Emma's 9th birthday and Drew and I went to NYC!!!  Drew sang at Lincoln Center and we celebrated our 15th anniversary.

July---we headed north to visit family....oh so fun!  Drew took a four day bike tour.

August---time for Eagle Camp, Elena getting a big girl bed, and returning back to school.

September---It was Jonah's birthday and we celebrated with a weekend trip to Galveston.

October---Jonah became a Tiger Scout and it was Halloween!

November---Emma, Jonah, and Samuel ran a 1 mile race on Thanksgiving day.  I ran a 5 mile race.

December---Drew and Elena had birthdays and it was Christmas!

I love looking back on the year.  It makes me even more thankful for all we were able to do and experience as individuals and as a family.  It was an amazing 2012!
