Best. Summer. Ever.

It has been a whirlwind summer for us. First a trip to Iceland, then France to visit family and celebrate a milestone birthday, then off to San Diego for a couple weeks of French Immersion camp (for the kids) and soaking up the sun at the beach (for me), then Disneyland, followed by stops through Arizona to visit family in southern Arizona and family on the ranch in eastern Arizona. We just capped it off with a week on Oahu to celebrate the wedding of two dear friends.

Wow, is this really my life?

I’ve seriously neglected my blog and you, my dear readers. Here are a few photos from Iceland, and more to come. Soon. I promise.

Hmmm. We did not partake, but I'm still curious about how Mexican food and Icelandic food would be combined...

We were there for the annual Viking Festival and popped in to check it out. It was actually quite fun, and the kids loved getting to try out a bow and arrow and play some traditional viking games.

  1. Your summer sounded very exciting. At least it would have been impossible to be bored. “Mommy I have nothing to do.” I remember my children complaining and they had a lot to do.

    I have always wanted to go to Iceland. It looks like a very interesting place but now I have to find someone to go with me…. Thank you for your story.

  2. Bored we were not, that’s for sure! Iceland is a great place to go- so different from anywhere I’ve ever been, and the people there were very friendly. We didn’t get very far afield, given the ages of our kids, but I think there’s something for everyone there – choose your own adventure!

  3. Amazing! I’d love to have a summer like that some day. But at least we had tons of family which made our summer wonderful. 🙂 Next summer might be my turn for France if I play my card right over the next few months. And it would be a sister trip!
