New Years Weekend 2016

Happy New Year! 2015 was a pretty amazing year for us...truly our most eventful year to date! With match day, med school graduation, a cross country move, starting residency, Kate starting preschool, and finding out we are expecting a baby boy, plus buying a mini van I think it is going to be pretty hard to beat. Except the fact that Henry (Yes, that's the name we have chosen for our baby boy) will be born and that will trump it all. He is really going to be here before we know it! I'm 30 weeks so we are just ~10 weeks away! Boy I better get started on a few of my projects!

We had an awesome New Years Eve with one of Kate's best friend/preschool friends Lola and her family! Tim got off in time to join us and we enjoyed eating amazing appetizers and chocolate fondu while the girls just play and entertained themselves while Tim and I got to know Lola's parents better. I haven't laughed that much in awhile. It was low key event but a perfect way to celebrate.

Then Tim was on call on New Years Day but somehow we just continued our lucky schedule streak and he never got called in. We headed to Papago Park to do some simple hiking in the distinctive red sandstone rock formations. The girls loved it and it was incredible to be out hiking in 65 degree weather in January! Arizona rocks in that department that is for sure! We also enjoyed introducing Tim to the amazing Train Park in Scottsdale and bought the girls new twin-sized beds. More on that to come. It was an amazing family weekend that was such a blessing as we prepare for Tim's next intense inpatient wards rotation!

Kate even got to control one of the trains in the model train area
