It's happened. I am the mother of a five year old.
It's crazy that Charlie is now five years old. I'm pretty sure that he was just 5.5 pounds a year or so ago.
This morning to celebrate we attempted a photo shoot. As you can see from the photo below, Charlie was not very on board with that and opted to start shredding the newspaper instead.
We attempted again during my lunch break after a long birthday walk.
Things went much better.
Until Charlie discovered that my "5" was made up of chewable cardboard.
The shoot quickly derailed.


Happy 5th Birthday Charlie! We are the luckiest people in the world to have such a wonderful pup.

Christmas Eve 2011 brought us twins in the form of my dad and Eric. Playful posing quickly went from this:
to this: 
I still am unsure about what happened here, but it gives me a good laugh.
Dan also joined the white T trend on his own terms
Obviously it's been a very good year. Happy New Year to all! Hopefully regular posting will begin again soon :)

On one of the days before our cruise, Dan and I took a day trip from Barcelona to Sitges. We had a slight incident at the start when we randomly took a train that we thought was heading to Sitges, but actually flew right past it. It wasn't our finest moment of the trip, but we figured it out fairly easily and it was the only time that we got lost for the remainder of our time there.
One of a million window shots I took along the way.
Sitges was awesome.
They have over a dozen public beaches to choose from.

They all run into each other and there is a really great overall atmosphere to the place.
Plus the beach pretty much had the softest sand of any place I have ever been. Seriously, I still think about that sand months later. Is that weird?
Since it was the first of many beaches we would go to on our vacation, I didn't really appreciate it as much as I should have. Who knew almost every other stop would have rocky "sand".
After beaching it we went up to the old church that overlooks the water.
And no, we didn't go in. Dan's motto for the trip... once you've seen one church you've seen them all.
I feel pretty certain that even though we went to Spain, Italy, Greece and Croatia which are pretty much church meccas we only went into one the entire trip.
We did catch the end of a wedding though.
We only spent half a day there, but would definitely go back and are so happy that we ventured outside of Barcelona when we had the chance.

When Melissa's eye got all red
and she walked around in sunglasses for the entire day?
 but then accidentally took them off in the subway?
yeah... me too.
