Christmas break

Our week off of work and 2011 are nearly coming to an end. Both went by much too fast! We had a great time celebrating Christmas with Rein and Christa in New York. Ellis remembered Oma and Opa well and she enjoyed our adventures to the Moma, Upper West Side and Queens.


Puerto Rico birthday getaway

Erik and I have been wanting to take a beach vacation since Aruba over three years ago. There were great deals between the two holidays, so we escaped cold NY for a few nights and headed down to Puerto Rico. Ellis loved playing in the sand and Erik and I were happy to catch up on some sleep (including a few afternoon naps). We hiked through the Yunque rain forest and up the hills of Old San Juan. Erik even found Wilson (like the movie Castaway) on a nearby beach. All in all it was a wonderful way to celebrate turning 31.
