28: OUR BIPLANE ADVENTURE
29: Wow! What an experience. The weather was not great so we headed inland instead of the coastal trip we had planned. The airplane was so small and light that even the smallest gust of wind shifted us around. Little scary at some points but it was very fun.

85: A Season of Love and Laughter
86: This was the first year we stayed home for Christmas. It was also the first year we had a Christmas tree. It was so exciting to get one. We search about 8 lots before we found Sierra. That is what we named her and she couldn't have been a more perfect tree.
87: Unfortunately being pregnant had hit me with full forces by the time Christmas was here and I spent most of the day hugging the toilet and the whole day after in the Emergency Room. It was memorable though.
88: We accomplished a goal of walking around the Back Bay (12 miles). Enjoyed going to a Halloween mustache party, 2nd row seats at the blue man group and dancing with Ellen DeGeneres. Steve received his first paycheck for leasing a waterfront home and we took our yoga skills to a new level.
90: We had so much fun this year. There were definitely challenges with new jobs and such but we still had a blast. We had many adventures and memories. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, we found out we were having a baby! That topped it off and made this our best year yet! I know we said that last year too but I have a funny feeling with the arrival of our little one thats going to be the recurring theme of each year.
