Last weekend Jesse and I finally decided on the car that I wanted to upgrade from our little Carolla Carol. I have loved Carol's MPG and low maintenance but have not liked that she is not AWD and a bit cramped when I want to have more than me and Charlie in the car on the way to work. Oh and the broken handles were getting a bit annoying!! Anyways the last straw was our trip to Vegas and we were in a rain/snow storm and the wipers have 2 settings, neither are useful in the rain or snow. The first mode is too fast for a light drizzle but too slow for regular rain and the second is too slow for hard rain and way too fast for regular rain. Leaving the driver either blind or having to do the wipers by hand. Here is our newest addition which I love and Charlie rides very nicely in the wwwwaaaaayyy back behind his dog netting!!

My mom and I went to Thailand for 3 weeks to play with Breckan and Ames. We landed in Bangkok and stayed for three days and then went a little north to Ayutthaya for three days. Then over to Kanchanaburi and stayed for four days. Then we flew south to Krabi and went to an island called Koh Lanta that was wonderful. We stayed for a week on the beach and rode scooters, ate some good food and swam a lot!! Ames became a fish while over there!! Then we came back up and flew way up north to where Breck is living in Chiang mai and stayed for our last week. Breck taught us how to really drive in traffic on a scooter, where the good restaurants were and some of the beautiful places of Northern Thailand. We had a great time, got nice and tan and came home very relaxed!!!
Obviously blogging has taken a drastic slowdown over the past few years and each year I think that I am going to pick right back up. Well.....we will see how that plan goes. I will just do a long catch-up post and then attempt to stay current. This may work this time, who knows! Snowboarding with Jenna my SIL
