2018 in Review

2018 was a fun year.  It started off with the purchase of a new vehicle to replace our aging Toyota Highlander that needed all kinds of things done.  We bought a 2018 Toyota Highlander hybrid in a beautiful silver color.

The girls turned 10 in February and celebrated with dinner at the Melting Pot with a few friends and a small sleepover with a few other friends.

Olivia took hip hop and was also in dance troupe.  She performed in the spring recital including the production of the Little Mermaid.

Paul and I celebrated a dozen years of marriage in May and celebrated with dinner at Ray's Boathouse.

In late June we took our annual Nelson Family Vacation to Texas.  We stayed in New Braunfels, visited friends in Austin, the Alamo and SeaWorld in San Antonio, and my aunt and uncle in Kerrville.  Texas is awesome (but way too hot in the summer) and we had SO much fun!

We spent the 4th of July holiday weekend at Crescent Bar and went camping at Lake Cushman in late July.  We did our almost annual viewing of the Blue Angels from the I-90 bridge in August, and then the girls started 5th grade and their final year of elementary school.

1st day of 5th Grade

Olivia played soccer again, Kayley gave volleyball a try and they both took a dance class--ballet for Olivia and hip hop for Kayley.  Olivia's soccer team went undefeated except for one tie, and she scored the game-winning goal in their second-to-last game.  That was pretty cool.

It was a great year and now we are looking forward to some really fun things in 2019, including a visit to the happiest place on earth!  Can't wait!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
