I didn’t mean to do it, I swear.
If you (still) read this blog, thank you!
I hope you will be happy to know that my hiatus is over. I dusted off the cobwebs and had to reset my password, but we’re up and rolling now. We’re good now, right?
The break was unintentional. I recently started a photography business and promised I wouldn’t let myself get overwhelmed. Well, long story short, it happened. I got buried alive with things that were priority over blogging. So I’ll just add this to my 2017 new year’s resolution: learn how to balance…all of it. Ha, yeah right.
So, why exactly haven’t I blogged for months? Some reasons:
My parents came to visit while Alex went to Alaska. They stayed for SIX whole weeks while Alex was gone.
The Korean Folk Village.
Fire safety week on base included a fire truck parade and a pancake breakfast open house at the fire station.
He was more interested in the firetrucks.
And the airplanes on the flight line.
He got a gurney ride after getting a personal tour of the ambulance. I’ve never laughed so hard.
Learning how to put out a fire with a simulator.
They did a fire demo complete with a helicopter rescue and it was really impressive. Owen loved it!
Enjoying the gorgeous fall weather.
A trip to a farm!
Lots of trips to the superb coffee shops because my kids don’t sleep at night and we needed lots of caffeine.
A trip to a local (semi-local…we got seriously lost on our way there) apple orchard where we got to pick delicious Chusa apples, made apple pie and apple jam.
Owen spent a lot of time out on the top of the parking garage with grandpa practicing riding his balance bike. He’s gotten pretty good at it. We spend the cold rainy days riding around our apartment building hallways.
A trip to Busan for my birthday.
Typhoon Chaba hit while we were there. We had no idea it was happening until we were in the middle of the storm on the 14th floor of our hotel building. It was a really big deal and it was wild. When it settled down, we wandered down and couldn’t believe the destruction. It’s something I never want to experience again. You know, I really should write another post devoted to our Busan trip.
Matching PJs until they’re 30.
You might find it hard to believe but there are so many incredible restaurants within walking distance from where we live. We went to most of them, some of them twice! Owen’s favorite is Pasta Vino.
We spent a lot of time wandering around the district right outside our base gate. It’s something Alex and I really haven’t taken the time to do so it was fun exploring home.
He was really worried the the fish weren’t in the water.
We spent a night in Seoul and visited the Seoul tower.
We explored Itaewon, a district of Seoul.
