Christmas Tree Farm | A New Form of Tree Hunting

Brent and I have been married for almost 10 years. That means this Christmas will be our tenth one together. It is so much fun to think about that. We don’t have a lot of traditions established yet. Mostly because we just did whatever was going on with our families and our friends.… Read the rest

What am I running for?

The Struggle

These days as I struggle to get out for all my weekly running goes, I started asking myself what am I running for? Usually I am training for something and I have set goals and training days scheduled. For me, this makes it easier for me to get out during the week.… Read the rest

Pumpkin Patch Fun

At the beginning of October, we went up to Kent, WA to visit our friends that just moved there from the east coast. It is so nice to have them closer and we can’t wait for more opportunities to visit them. It was a beautiful weekend and we took the chance to head to the local pumpkin patch.… Read the rest

Birthday Boy | Elijah Turned Two

Elijah was the happiest little birthday boy these last two days. We celebrated with him and family a day early. Several family members came and we had a blast watching him participate.

Our Norwegian Adventure | Reykjavík

I know. I know. Reykjavík is in Iceland not Norway, but it is tied to our Norwegian adventure. It will forever be part of that time when we went to Norway and had a little added bonus on our way home. We arrived at the airport not knowing where we would stay or if we would even get a place.… Read the rest

Our Norwegian Adventure | Oslo

We took the very scenic railway from Bergen to Oslo. It is said to be the best in Europe. We sure enjoyed being able to see more of the countryside and to enjoy the long ride without being in a plane for a change. It was helpful for Elijah as well because we were able to walk around with him more and there was a play area.… Read the rest

Our Norwegian Adventure | Bergen

Elijah had another successful night sleeping away in our old Bergen home away from home. His schedule was back to being somewhat normal which made for an easier trip for all of us. It helped us to really enjoy the rest of our time in Norway. We frequented the local grocery store Kiwi in Tromsø and were glad to find one across the street from our house in Bergen.… Read the rest

Our Norwegian Adventure | Norway in a Nutshell

After leaving Tromsø, we flew to Bergen. I fell in love instantly from the sky. Looking out the window, I knew that this part of the trip was going to be spectacular and it was. We quickly settled into our new Airbnb which was an 1920’s old wooden home. It sure had it’s charm.… Read the rest

Our Norwegian Adventure | Tromsø

We arrived in Tromsø tired. It was another good plane ride for the kiddo, but we were still not caught up on sleep. None of us slept on the plane. It took us a moment to figure out where our Airbnb entrance was. Once again, we were still too tired to actually comprehend the directions that were given to us.… Read the rest

Our Norwegian Adventure

Long Travel Day(s)

We started off our first day of travel by waking up too early in the morning. Elijah decided that he was way to excited about his first international trip that he needed to wake us up at 5 a.m. We knew that it would be a long couple days and were hoping for a little more sleep.… Read the rest
