Ice Castles in New Hampshire

This past weekend, we went to the Ice Castles in New Hampshire with a big group of friends. We went last year too, so now it's our little February winter tradition. It's pretty cold being surrounded by ice as you can imagine, so we all had to really bundle up!

This year, they had all the characters from the movie Frozen walking around! They were also playing the Frozen soundtrack, so it felt a little like Disneyland. And Olivia was so bundled up you could basically only see her eyes😂

There was a fountain shooting up water there too!

Ryan practically slept the whole time in the baby wrap 😌

I'm so glad that lots of our friends were there too! Nothing cuter than seeing a bunch of babies and toddlers in their snow clothes...

Galentine's Day!

Happy Galentine's Day! Thank you Leslie Knope for creating one of my favorite holidays💕💕

This is the second Galentine's dinner we've all celebrated together in Boston. We all get dressed up in red/pink and hand out little valentines to each other. This year we went to Carrie Nation for dinner, it was the perfect place because the walls are red and they had a giant table that could seat all 20 of us!

We had so much fun visiting together. Plus, we all went home with a bag full of goodies!

Later in the week, my friend had a baby Galentine's brunch at her house. The girls wore pink dresses which was so adorable!

San Diego

My parents just bought a house in San Diego, so we stayed with them for the holidays. We flew out for Thanksgiving, and since we planned to spend Christmas there as well, we decided it would be best to just stay the 3 weeks in between the holidays. Flying across the country with two babies is no joke😁 Plus, it was so nice to have my parents help with our kids since we just had a baby and Dallin works a lot.

I sure love this place! Can we all just move here? It was perfect weather everyday, even though it was "winter". We explored lots of places during our 6-week visit and one of my favorites was the Botanic Garden.

There's a pretty bamboo forest, sunflower patch, and even a little playground that Olivia loved.

Almost everyday was 80 degrees and sunny, so we tried to go to the beach almost once a week. My favorite was Moonlight beach. There's a little paved path that leads almost all the way to the water, so you can easily bring your stroller on this beach.

A couple of my friends flew in with their babies to visit for a few days! It was so fun spending time with my friend Annie and her son Beckham. He's 8 months old and almost walking!

We also explored this little park called Queen Califia's Magic Circle.

And did tons of hot tubbing!
