The similarity is uncanny.

For the boys, it's back to school... sort of. Back to virtual/remote learning. Will it ever go back to normal?

This is depressing...

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I ❤ Colorado. This was our seventh road trip to Colorado since 2018. We stayed in Silverthorne this time around, which was nearby Frisco and Dillon, and a short drive to Breckenridge... exploring more of Summit County.

It's been over six years since we took a trip without any kids so we were long overdue for a getaway. And we did so with Getaway. It's camping but instead of sleeping outside in a tent, we had a tiny house with basic amenities... so glamping.

We created Getaway to give people time, space, and permission to be off. Our tiny cabins in nature provide a break from the city, technology, and work, so that you can recharge and reconnect to who and what matters most.

Last week, we took a family beach vacation to Gulf Shores, AL. And when I say family, I mean the entire family... from Lynn's side (my in-laws). For 6 nights, we had 29 people under one roof... And we were still missing a few people!

On paper, it sounds daunting but my aunts and mother-in-law had it under control. There was a lot of planning prior, from who's bring what to setting a daily menu... from breakfast to dinner. Even though one family would be responsible for one day of cooking, it seemed like they were always in the kitchen... helping, prepping, cleaning, etc. Hopefully they were able to enjoy themselves, to relax and make it an actual vacation.

By the second day, I was content. There's only so much you can do on the beach. And I was a bit defeated when I lost two canopies. Our big canopy was broken on the first day when a sudden storm with strong winds blew through. Then a few days later, my aunt's big canopy flew into my personal canopy, destroying both. This beach kicked my ass. 😑

Since we have a lot of dads in our lives, we celebrated Father's Day early on various days prior to Sunday.

Since there's not much going on right now (pandemic yet to be over), I thought I'd reminisce. The Google Photos app has a feature called Memories that shows highlights from the same week, x years ago.

Below are pictures taken in June, starting in 2010 (before this blog started) and beyond.

Let's take a trip down memory lane.

Andrew's current interest is sport/racing cars and he's been on a streak of drawing cars. To do so, he looks up pictures on the internet and draws with his laptop beside him. His pictures are really good.

Elliot (being the impressionable 4 year old) had to do the same. And her drawing was of her current interest... Disney's Frozen. The resemblance is uncanny!
