This is a little late but better late than never, right?
We ended 2016 just right for our family. We took the boys to the science museum and spent the entire day there. We feel so spoiled having an annual pass and all the perks ;) We took the boys to the show in the omni theater. They loved it... for the first few minutes and then started playing in and with their seats and standing to stretch over the rails. We were still glad to take them. It was a long and winded visit, but we were together and that's really the best part. Here are some photos of our visit.
Afterward, we went to Coldstone creamery for some ice cream. Marshall had a gift card tucked in his wallet just waiting to be used. I love an (almost) free date.
Marshall loved being on the ice so much, in fact that he went out the next morning to purchase his very own hockey skates. He even got together with some guys to play at a local rink. He thinks they were a great investment. I am happy he bought something for himself, he doesn't do enough of that.
We rang in the new year pretty simply. We ordered pizza and had a dance party in our living room. The boys counted down at around 7pm and they were fast asleep by 7:30. Marshall and I watched a movie and were in bed by 10:30. I think I remember waking up just before midnight to help Eli back to bed, and heard the neighbors celebrating the new year. I fell back to sleep pretty quickly after that.
I feel like this year has a lot of things for us. I am looking forward to all of it.
Happy New Year.
