16 in 2016

I thought I'd do a little 2016 recap, because we had a pretty great year.

The kids and I enjoyed playing in the first snow of the season.

We finally moved to our new house after 6 long months of renovating. It still wasn't finished on 2/6/16, but it was finished enough for us to move in and we have been finishing up the rest a little bit at a time!! We love our new house and our new neighborhood.

We celebrated Easter!

Jake and I traveled to Costa Rica in April with friends and it was such a beautiful and relaxing trip.

We enjoyed watching Jackson play T-Ball and Soccer in the Spring!

We celebrated Avery's 2nd birthday with a Peppa Pig Party at the park!

Avery had her very first haircut.

We went on several adventures around the city, including visits to the Zoo, Magic House, Busch Stadium for a Cardinals Game, Castlewood State Park, Laumeier Sculpture Park, Suson Park, the Science Center, Sky Zone and Forest Park to name a few.

We celebrated Independence Day

The Kids started their new Pre-School!

The kids and I went to a beautiful 9/11 memorial on Art Hill in Forest Park. This was one of my favorite pictures of the year.

We took an amazing Family Vacation to Disney World!! (Probably the highlight of the year for me.)

We celebrated Jackson's 5th birthday with a Jake and the Neverland Pirates party at the park!

We celebrated Halloween!

We hosted our first Thanksgiving in the new house with Jake's side of the family!

We celebrated our First Christmas in our new home!

Like I said, 2016 was pretty good to us and we are already looking forward to a lot of great things to come in 2017. We are going on a family trip later this month to Phoenix, AZ which will include Avery's first plane ride and a visit to the Grand Canyon, Jake and I will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary in July, we plan to open our pool this summer and Jackson will start Kindergarten in the Fall!!
