After a trip up north and some quality time at home, we celebrated a third and final Christmas with the Tucker side of the family!
For the first time in a very long while, we were at our own home for Christmas, and it was glorious! We had the turkey dinner we missed on Thanksgiving while in Finland, the kids all played nicely, and Santa made it a special day!
This year, we started the Christmas festivities in CT – complete with great family, yummy food, rambunctious kids and good, ol’ gag gifts. It was a whirlwind weekend that, as a bonus, ended with some Star Wars and Frozen 2!
Just like that, Mr. O turned three! Since we had tired ourselves out at Hershey Park the day before, we took it a little easy – though made sure he had access to plenty of treats. A few days later, we enjoyed his Moana party with family!
After a four-year hiatus, we returned to the land of chocolate – Hershey – for some sweets, rides and other treats. After a nearly 12- hour day, complete with a surprise bonus of family joining in the afternoon, it was a great, albeit exhausting, time.
While the cats were away, the mice were at play for a long weekend! Thanks to Nanie and Pop Pop, the boys were spoiled rotten and had a fabulous time while mom and dad enjoyed Germany.
We covered a lot of ground in Destin, and took a lot of photos. Here are highlights of the rest of our week!
We haven’t yet missed a chance to set sail for the high seas aboard a pirate ship, and Destin was no different! This time, the heat was a little much though. But, we made the most of the sweaty fun by hunting for treasuring, gaining key pirate skills and enjoying a little dance party at…
One of Destin’s coolest locations is Crab Island, a sandbar accessible only by boat and a true playground – pontoon boats, jet skis, over-water ninja warrior courses, restaurants and other vendors. The entire family enjoyed a great half day out on the water together – including on our two-slide boat and jet ski!
