2009 was a great year. An adventurous year to say the least, and very fun!
Have a gander at the good, the bad, and ugly...
and all that didn't make it on the good old blog.
the summer of the "park"
last 4th of July Parade at Stratford
first taste of guava
living with lizards
the year we gave in and introduced Sprite to Tate
unpacking our new home
fresh tuna: caught and delivered to our door the same day
Tate poppin a squat
looking a little bloated:)
juggling and balancing acts by Wyatt
Tate improvising with those same grapefruit
that face
climbing palms
swinging on palms
the one and only charming building on Dominica (and the street name was even cute- Bow Lane)
selling eggs
The "Shacks", where most students and spouses eat
Brooke and her boyfriend:)
The Good Life
landing in chilly slc
reunited with my blanket, and so SO happy for the need of a blanket
Tate, grandma and grandpa at their ward halloween party
Tate's other 2 tucked under her legs
don't even ask (mine and moms first time ever to a club)
Tate asks me to "take her picture by these little men"!
The End.
Happy New Year!


  1. This is the single cutest post ever. I love the year at a glance and love all the outtakes. That pic of you in the black is the most beautiful thing ever. You're simply stunning. And the one with the DC is pretty fab too . . . and Tate with the guava (hahaha) and, and, and . . . . They're all so great. Happy New Year. xoxo
