2016 In Review

I felt like I was slacking on getting our end of the year post done, and then I saw last year I didn't post the review until March 2016. So I think I'm doing pretty well! (I also originally started working on this post right before Christmas, but still better than last year for the actual post!)

2016 was a slower year for us which we were very thankful for! As our kids get older they actually want to do more. For example, this year we went hiking at Pere Marquette which they loved! I enjoy winter but I'm excited for it to warm back up so we can go on more adventures outside. We would like to take them to the Museum of Transportation (Jack LOVES trains) and I also want to make sure we get to ride the train at the zoo (I've never done that before!)

This year we are also going on our very first vacation as a family!! We will be going to Florida the last week of April (Brandon's 30th birthday!) We're surprising the kids with a day at Disney and then we will be taking them to the beach as well. 

Noel is already going to be in kindergarten next year so I've thought of transitioning from weddings to newborns and families but I haven't fully decided yet. I do love weddings! One day I may end up going into redoing/updating furniture which I really love doing. We'll see. Anyway, on to what you are here for, here are a few pictures from each of our sessions in 2016.
