‘Ello ‘Ello!

I’m not going to try justifying my blog hiatus, so instead I bring you the last 4ish months in photos!

Most notably, Dan and I went over to the states for Christmas this year.  It was so nice to be able to spend Christmas with my family as I have been in England for the past few years.  It was also really good to see my mom and dad since they had their motorcycle accident in September.  My dad was on crutches when we arrived and walking around without them by the time we left!  Unfortunately, poor mom was not on crutches and ended up back on them when we left!

1488100_10100545901880457_743788907_nDan fully embraced the cold weather, taking the dog out, he even got to go snowboarding twice (thanks so much to our cousin Tim for getting us into Wild Mountain and Andy for joining us on the hill!), and we did a bit of sledding as well.

1545994_10100549990626577_425455120_nChristmas was an eventful day, with Grandma and Grandpa’s for brunch, my Uncle Joe’s for lunch/dinner, and then back to Aunt Jodie’s and Uncle Rick’s for drinks and more food!  It was a really nice trip, plenty of catching up with family and friends and experiencing a “proper” winter!  No overnights in the airports either, although it was a close call!

15151_667971694866_623797299_nHere’s Dan and I having our first fish and chips of the year on the beach 🙂  We had just had some really bad storms and were actually sitting where some of the beach huts stood.  Dan was very busy at work due to all the bad weather!

1524572_671413677106_2000698888_nDan has been doing a lot of kite surfing and is now able to get some snazzy shots like this with his GoPro!

    Hi Mandy & Dan,
    It was good to finally hear from you! Spring has sprung for a little while – it will get a little colder
    again this week and we may have some SNOW again. Looks like you will have a great place
    for your vacation. We want to wish you a “Happy Easter”. We will go to Cindy’s and Rick’s.
    We hope to go to the lake after Easter – but I guess there is still a couple feet of snow up there –
    hope it melts soon.
    Grandma & Grandpa

      Hi Grandma and Grandpa,
      We’ve been having some nice weather here lately, have been enjoying the sunshine. Can’t imagine all the snow you still have! Very excited for our holiday, looking forward to even hotter weather 🙂 Dan and I wish everyone a Happy Easter as well! Hope you have a nice time at the cabin and there isn’t too much snow left!

      Mandy and Dan
