Happy 2013!

I can't believe it's already 2013!

The past couple of months have been busy, but Christmas was really magical this year thanks to all of the love around me. Although, I missed writing on this blog, spending quality time with my family always takes precedence. Isn't that what Christmas is really all about?

Over the past 6 weeks, our kids have taken a break from sports, and we've been exploring many local, family friendly attractions. We kicked off the holiday with Sesame Place, then headed to the Please Touch Museum, The Adventure Aquarium, Longwood Gardens, downtown Philadelphia and most recently spent the night in Washington, D.C.

While in D.C., we explored the Air and Space Museum, The Natural History Museum, and even stopped by the National Zoo before we headed home. Despite forgetting our stroller, and having a very tired 4-year old, it was an awesome trip. I was blown away by how friendly everyone in Washington D.C. was, and it certainly made our trip very memorable.

Here are a few photos from our holiday adventures.

Our 2012 family adventures are over, but we're really looking forward to a fabulous 2013!  Do you have any special plans for the new year?
