I don’t know about you, but for us, 2016 flew by! In fact, the first week of 2017 flew by. (And now, only 51 more weeks to go…)
I was always worried that having a kid would hinder our ability to travel. However, Alex and I were able to travel with Baby M quite a bit in 2016, but we did have to put a lot more consideration into destinations with direct flights, cleanliness, etc. In 2016, we as a family flew to Hong Kong twice, Japan (Hiroshima and Hokkaido) twice, Vietnam once, and took several trips within Korea (flew to Jeju island, drove south to Boseong with Marcia, and drove east to Seoraksan National Park). We wrapped up our year with a trip back to Kansas City, to spend the holidays with Alex’s family (and my dad flew too).
It was great spending time (i.e. eating meals… now I need to go on a strict diet!!) with family, and we were able to meet our nephew, Baby D. Baby M wasn’t really interested in Baby D, but I’m sure they will enjoy chasing each other around their grandparents’ home next Christmas! 😀
From our family to yours, may you have a healthy, happy, and prosperous 2017!
