fascinating documentary

Matt and I watched this fascinating documentary called Surfwise. It's about a family of 11(!) that grew up on traveling in a RV and surfing at different beaches around the continent. 

You can watch the trailer here:


i thought this was neat

I thought this was one of the coolest stories! Apparently Robert Downey Jr. heard about a kickstarted campaign to raise finds for prosthetic limbs for children around the world. He showed up to meet one little boy who is missing an arm, and gave him a real bionic arm! 

Check out the cute video below:


I just loved this story!

The 11 year-old daughter of a professional hockey player wrote a letter asking for her dad to be traded to the Minnesota Wild, where they live. The cute note went viral, and her dad ended up getting picked up by the Wild so he could be closer to his family. It's so neat to see a franchise that is normally all about business do something sweet like this!

our trip to the carribean

Matt and I had an amazing time on the cruise! It was hard to come back to the cold here. The trip was a little different than the previous cruise. Matt's parents went with us last time, so we definitely missed them this year. 

We sailed to San Juan, Puerto Rico, then to St. Thomas, and then St. Maarten. We went to Castillo San Felipe del Morro, a fort in San Juan, a beach in St. Thomas, and a horseback ride on the beach (and in the water!) in St. Maarten. It was so relaxing to get away from the daily duties from home. Here are some photos from the trip!
