Ok ok.. so no blogging.. well we have been busy. Traveling and eating and visiting and traveling and visiting and eating.. well you get the point. Whew!! It has been an amazing, overwhelming, fun, lovely and exhausting visit back to the homeland.
We landed end of March in Cali and the first thing we did was eat pancakes! Why you ask? I don’t know.. seemed like the American thing to do.. (I myself had a Cobb Salad that I had been dreaming of over the last few months before we got here.)
Oh and we froze. It was in the 70’s and we were shivering and getting stared at because we were wearing all the warm clothes we could muster while standing next to short and tank top wearing Californians.
So here is a brief blurb of our time home:
California we visited family and spent Easter
Saw a red bridge
ate snow flakes (Northern Cali)
Oregon visited our friend Sarah who we lived with in Tanz.
Saw some BIG Trees
Hugged some Trees
found a wood elf
Portland visited more family
Drove to Seattle saw some Tulips and some old friends
Celebrated getting old
Chicago visited family, went shopping
Ate more pancakes with said family..
Drowned in paperwork..
Celebrated more getting old with back massages and Greek eating.. Opa!
Went to Michigan visited family
Old cars and farms
pretended there was snow
Back to Chicago and tree climbing..
Hot cocoa and grandparent spoiling
3 of us off to Jamaica for sibling wedding fun
back to Chicago for more visits
Beans and Chicago fun
Wisconsin to the cabin for relaxing, fishing and 12 year anniversaries
This is a small sampling of our time home and its been such fun!
PERTH HERE WE COME!!
