Our trip to Cameroon

We had an absolute amazing time in Cameroon with my family last February. It was a long flight to get there but it was so nice to hang out with all my aunts, uncles and cousins and introduce my family to Cameroon. We had an absolute blast despite traveling with 3 little kids (5, 3, and 2 years old) while pregnant and I took so many awesome pictures that I really had to sit down  and go through them to do a recap that would capture how beautiful the trip was.

My boys hanging out with my aunt. She is my mom's youngest sister

We went to this popular cake place in town and I indulged in so many awesome treats. Chilling with my mom and my aunt. We could be sisters :).
I just loved the way Tman and Jbird always slept on top of each other :). How cute are these two
We went out with my father and the crew of course. I am so loving Bean's smile in this picture, this kid was just loving the whole experience
My brother J joined us for the food and fun of course
Check out hubby and the big boys chowing down on some awesome beignet haricot and ice cream :)
My cousin Alex was there too :). Beignet haricot used to be my favorite meal when I was little
We visited my aunt, my dad's older sister and she was so happy to meet the boys in person
Does Bean have the cutest smile or what, he really enjoyed all the excitement of the trip
We also got to hang out with my mom's side of the family. Chilling at my great aunt's house with the family, Tman was passed out on hubby's legs :)
We got to chill at my grandma's house
We walked around the neighborhood where I grew up. My boys weren't impressed :)
This is how we traveled Cameroonian style
Look at all those kids passed out in the car :)
We got to visit my aunt's place in the village
Hanging out with my cousins, we all live overseas but got reunited in our hometown
Hanging out with the great aunts in the village, look at my Bean's smile over there :)

My boys hanging out in our bedroom in the village. I used to spend Summers here when I was younger
My brother hanging out with my boys
My cousin and my Tman taking selfies, lol
Family pictures are the best
I just love this picture of me and my cousin cracking jokes, poor Bean was sleepy
All of us gathered in my grandma's kitchen and took a group pic, I just love this so much
The dust in the village was crazy, I mean look at our feet from just walking around
My mom and Bean hanging out in front of my grandparents house in the village
We took a family picture in front of my grandparents house. We all have the same grandma and granddad (except for hubby of course). How amazing is this. My grandma (in purple) is so proud of the family that she created
My mom and her daughter and nieces, Bean is a bonus :)
I love this picture so much. Bean was attached to my hip all the time during this trip and the minute he met my great uncle he jumped in his arms. Blood is thicker than water :)
I loved hanging out with my family on this trip and seeing so many family members. Clearly Bean enjoyed it too, look at that smile on his face, my happy baby
Car selfie with my mom and the babies :)

As we were getting ready to go to the airport, the kids were running around in front of the house
We all made it to the airport ready to make the trek back home
Hubby my multi tasker, love this man
Then we hung out at the airport in Paris with my cousin
On the plane ready to take off
We had an epic and amazing trip to Cameroon. It was a long and busy trip but man we enjoyed every minute of the chaos. The last time I went home before then was 11 years ago and I think I need to make it back more often. We decided that every 3 years might be more reasonable. Thank you for the amazing time Cameroon, we'll be back sooner rather than later.


  1. You guys makes things look so easy and happy you had a wonderful time with your family.

  2. These pictures are perfection! Looks like such a great time and so awesome that the kiddos got to meet family overseas!
