{Alaskan Cruise}

The past couple of weeks we have been traveling all over the place. G has become quite the world traveler ;) We went on an alaskan cruise with Williams family. We started our journey in seattle, then went to different parts of alaska, & also Canada. It was a blast! We had such a wonderful time just hanging out with family for a week... & eating.. LOTS. If you have been on a cruise before, you know what i mean when i say we ate lots. William & his brother both came home 5 pounds heavier! Seriously! G made lots of friends too. By the end of the cruise, almost everyone knew who she was & was calling her by her first name. I was very surprised how well giuliana did on the boat & on the plane. Im not going to lie, i was really nervous about traveling with her, but she was amazing!
Here are some pictures from our trip

{Garlands 2012}

i seem to have fallen off the face of the planet!
But again
its for good reason

We went on our annual family trip to Sedona
It was a blast, as always!
& then, shortly after arriving back home, we all caught the AWFUL cold that has been going around.
Awful as in, stuffy nose, then runny nose, uncontrollable coughing & hacking, laying in bed, ALL DAY because you are so miserable & can barely open your eyes.. yea. no fun.
First G got it
Then i got it
& poor Willy was the last to get it, & he had it the worst out of all of us!
So we have had a house full of sickies for a couple of weeks
But now we are all better
Here are some pictures from our family trip!
