I STILL can't upload pics onto the blog....  If I can't troubleshoot this it looks like my blogging life will come to an end.  Sniff, sniff.  Any ideas, anyone?

Family Camp

Another great year at Family Camp... 

Geoff amazed me once again with his energy, enthusiasm and commitment to this very special place.

Happy Anniversary to my LOVE!

We had a FABULOUS day celebrating our FIRST anniversary! After a slow start and a delicious breakfast at our favorite joint, we headed out to 3 Mile Beach near Santa Cruz.

It was a bit chilly, but beautiful and we had the whole beach to ourselves!

Back to our house where Geoff whipped up one of my favorite Lebanese meals ~ Kibbee!

While we enjoyed dinner and a nice bottle of wine from our Napa trip we watched the full version of our wedding video. WOW! What amazing memories.... and it's hard to believe it was one year ago. When we were at the beach I said to Geoff "I love my life with you".... I think that sums it up!

Mmmmm.... Wedding cake!


This year we celebrated our 4th Abodeely Family Holiday. Each year it gets better and better! I absolutely LOVE being with my family and it's so special to be able to make new memories, especially with our babies. Oh man.... I LOVE my babies! They are amazing little people and I am in awe of what great parents my siblings are.

Porter LOVES Uncle Geoff

Morning play time

They both loved the red wagon!

My sis and her hubby decided to leave baby with grandma and grandpa and aunt and uncle for a few days.  It was soooo much fun and she loved her time away from her parents ~ she is such a party animal.  She especially loved all the ice cream we gave her. :-) 
All this fun meant that we travelled back on the plane with little bunny.... boy, was it fun!  We read Elmo 943 times and for every kiss that Elmo got, I got one too!  I'm amazed by all parents out there, especially those that fly with their children!

While we read Elmo, Geoff enjoyed the view.... must be nice.

 (J/K... he was a great help!)

We loved Bangkok ~ Pics

 The reclining Buddha at Wat Pho ~ forty-six metres long and fifteen metres high, decorated with gold plating on his body and mother of pearl on his eyes and the soles of his feet.  So cool!

Having lunch outside the famous (crazy) weekend market.

The Temple of Dawn from across the river.

Getting ready to JUMP (literally) on the local water taxi - fun and super insane experience!
