Before I get all European up in here (yes, we leave IN A FEW DAYS...what!?!?!?!?!?!), I owe you one fine American vacation recap...

It all started with Audrey's longest flight of her life... which was managed by yours truly....solo... and will be totally trumped (as in more than doubled in length) in a matter of days...when we go to EUROPE....what?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Anyway, the journey to DC was a L-O-N-G one.
Luckily, our layover in Denver included manicures at the airport spa. What?!

John was away at a conference in DC for a L-O-N-G 3 weeks before we decided to go visit him, and spend a week in our nation's capital. I'm VERY happy we decided to visit. I'd never been to DC, and while I knew what to expect more or less, I did not anticipate loving the city as much as I did. 

It was an amazing week...

Of course, we hit the key sites including, but not limited to

The Capital

Lincoln Memorial 

The National Monument 

The White House

The Smithsonian Museum of Natural History
(yes, that's a butterfly on Audrey's leg)

The National Zoo

Jefferson Monument

National Air and Space Museum

And more... 

But, overall we really just had a lot of simple, good 'ol fashion American fun too. From umbrella sword fights, ice cream stops, and a trip to ABC/ on election day to carousel/bus/metro rides, a few visits to Georgetown (including the university) and lots of lots of walking frolicking in the beautiful fall leaves! 

Thanks again to John, the major smarty pants in our lives, who gave us a really fabulous excuse to visit DC!!! xoxo

Now, we're off to Europe... right after I finish preparing the surprise very American Christmas I've been planning for Audrey tomorrow... and unless I somehow squeeze in editing this DC video too... Fingers crossed. I'm literally counting down the hours at this point. 

love, kerry

Get Well Soon, Mike!!!

One of my favorite guys has been recovering from surgery. 
And, I've been thinking A LOT about something nice to do for him to brighten his day.

I thought, could I send him some "get well soon" flowers and a card?

No, he's a guy. 

Maybe I should surprise him with a pizza delivery, or yummy take-out? 

Well, that might be mean since his throat hurts so much... 


What could I do? What could I do???

Then, it came to me. 
The perfect idea... And, it was right in front of me the entire time. 


So Mike, 
I made you this video from our magical day celebrating Audrey's 3rd birthday! Enjoy with a warm bowl of Chinese soup, followed by a popsicle (or ten). I hope it makes you feel a little better! Looking forward to seeing you this weekend!

love, kerry

We are behind you.

We’ve got your back.
 No matter where you go. 

Not just at the beach. Wherever you go...

Whatever you choose to become.

No matter the season.

No matter what obstacles are in your way.

No matter what amazing new adventures you have. 

We’ve got your back.

Whenever life becomes difficult. We will be there.

From the beginning...

We'll be behind you when you are challenged with a new task. And in front of you at times.

 Rain or shine.

 Whenever you meet a new character in life...

When you shop...

When you bowl...

You get the point, we are behind you...Literally...Taking lots of pictures. 
And we can't wait to see what you do next.

love, kerry
