Last weekend really made me so happy to be back in the states with family near. My parents and youngest brother flew to Texas from California to spend a week with their Texas family…which consists of me, my two sisters and our Aunt and our families which is about 20 people. We had a girls lunch, a few different family dinners, four birthday celebrations, a baby blessing, and a lot of laughter and memories. I love being with my family.
In December my sister informed me that she was expecting a baby at the beginning of August. Then a week later she found out that she was carrying TWINS!
My sister is pretty incredible. She flew from Utah to Manila (taking 4 planes each way) with her 4 year old and 1 year old while her husband was touring Asia. The kids and I were so happy to have them come visit with us. They stayed for 3 weeks and we got to do a lot of pampering, shopping, eating, site-seeing, reuniting, etc. It was so much fun. We hadn’t seen each other for 8 months and we are not sure when we will see each other again. It was also nice to have her around while Matt was out of the country.
Not exactly sure when and where we will all be together again. Good thing there is the internet, social media networks, facetime, telephones, etc. to stay in touch! Thanks for coming to visit us Hansen family.
With the birth of this little guy, there are now 5 grandsons and only 3 granddaughters for my parents.
My sister gave birth to baby Keo on March 8. He weighed 8 pounds 10 ounces and was 20.25 inches long.
Last port-of-call….COZUMEL, Mexico. Larsens and Hansens rented a jeep and drove around the island and Matt and I did our own excursions this day. I told Matt the only thing I wanted to do was swim with dolphins since he did that the year before without me. The weather was nothing like the day before… It was very windy and we were not able to go parasailing as we planned. However we were able to swim with the dolphins since they were in their own cove. It was so exciting and I truly enjoyed it. There were about a dozen people in our group and we had the main trainer with us, so more information was shared. We were able to give a dolphin a handshake, hug, kiss, and belly ride. After our dolphin experience we had lunch and did our last shopping at the port since we had some free time.
I love going on cruises and spending time with my family. We are already thinking about our next cruise…maybe we will take the kids.
