Goodbye 2011

2011 was a very eventful year in our household. We were the proud parent of a 5 month old when the year began and were feeling pretty good about things. Before having a baby we were world travelers, after the baby the traveling slowed down but definitely did not stop. We now just take the baby along for the ride.

Here are some of the fun things that we did in 2011 in pictures.

In February, T-man attended his first birthday party at pump it up.

In April we checked out the cherry blossoms in DC

Then we celebrated my birthday, my first one as a mom

In May, we went to Niagara Falls on our way to visit a friend in Toronto
T-man also got to ride on the DC metro for the first time on our way to the zoo
 T-man also had his first swim lesson

In June we went to Philadelphia to visit some awesome friends
 I just love this TMZ style shot of us walking the streets of Philadelphia :)
 In July we celebrated T-man's birthday with a prince theme
Then we jetted off to Cancun to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary, the baby came with and we had a blast

In August T-man was baptized, we waited a whole year because we wanted the English family to be there, it was a great success

In September we attended a soccer themed first birthday party, T-man had a great time
Then we went to Calgary in Canada to visit hubby's cousin, great scenery for sure
In October we went to a football game with hubby's parents
Then we took T-man to a pumpkin patch
We also celebrated Halloween, T-man was a little vampire
In November, we visited a good friend's baby (maybe T-man's future wife :))
Then we celebrated thanksgiving (no pics :( unfortunately)
In December we went to NYC for the day and enjoyed a day as a couple
Then we celebrated Christmas
It's been such a great year. Having a baby really does change your life for the better. We look forward to 2012, we know it will be an even better year.


  1. Beautiful pictures. Happy New Year.

  3. I love this! You guys traveled soo much with your lil one in tow! This gives me hope! A lot of our friends say that after you have a baby you just become home-bodies...which we totally aren't. So its good to see all the experiences you've had with your son. Such a cute lil guy!! Happy new Year!

    1. The first few months you have to be a homebody but after that it's game on. We are such travelers, we let nothing get in our way :)

  4. Wow sounds like an amazing year for you guys! Tons of traveling and a cute baby boy to make everything better :) You guys do alot of fun stuff too.... hopefully me and my man will start doing more stuff like that when we have a kid one day :)

    1. Thanks, it was a great year. You should totally do lots when you have kids, it's like building great memories together.

  5. And 4 babies later....can't get how quick time goes by, around my head! I just can't. Next thing you'll be celebrating Tyler's 21 ��
