Our First Snow

This morning, when we woke up, our house was covered in snow!! Needless to say, we quickly ran out and ruined the pretty white blanket by sledding down it and then running back up :) Here's some pictures


our beautiful hill ;)

Moving Back

It's now been a week since we moved back to California. but we just got wifi yesterday, so I can blog now. Here's a few photos from out trip. We took five days, and traveled along highway 10, going through Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, and then into California.

Alabama: Part 2

One of the other really fun things we did in Alabama was go to the U.S. Space and Rocket Center! We saw lots of rockets, artifacts, simulators, and learned tons of cool stuff! 










oh no! An alien on the lunar colony!!!

Alabama: Part 1

A little while ago, our family went to Alabama to visit my mom's grandma, and we ended up doing a lot of cool stuff! Here are some pictures.

One of my favorite parts of this trip was hiking in the Talladega mountains. The weather was in the 70's, there was no on else around, and we found a beautiful view of Alabama (which was off the highway, but still cool)!

Moving

Well guys, we're moving back to California! In a week's time, our boxes will be packed and we will be driving back. My dad found us a house that's a little farther up in the mountains than before, so expect some hiking posts sometime in the future. I'm really excited and can't wait to be back! In the meantime, I'll be posting about some of the trips we went on!

Life Lately



 Some of the highlights from this month were a lorikeet sitting on my head, being made into a sand manatee, and seeing my first full sized alive alligator.

My New Surfboard

I just got a surfboard! It's a 7' madden that I got for $75 on craigslist, but it has some dings in it, so we will have to fix it up before I can use it. And yes, those are my pajamas. Don't judge me. :)

Kind of Big News

So, I have some kind of big news for you guys. My Family and I moved to Florida. My grandmother is ill, so we decided to move there to help and support her. Don't worry though, because it's not permanent. I don't know quite how long we will be here for, but I think it will be around a year! We drove across the country in our minivan, towing a trailer with the stuff we were bringing, but left a lot of it back in California. The drive across the country was TONS of fun, but it felt good to get settled in after all that driving! Here are some pictures from the trip!
