i have so many photos to share from our trip to boston! we had a wonderful time, and i’m so glad we finally went. i had never been before, despite all these years of living on the east coast and always hearing the best things about the place. but everything aligned last weekend with a few days off from school for eleanor and with old friends now living in boston, so we decided it was the perfect time to go, especially with all the fall foliage basically at its peak right now (the drive alone was insane, it’s so colorful out right now.)

we drove up on saturday and hit a big rain storm, which didn’t stop pouring until the early hours of monday morning!...

hi everyone! we drove down to DC yesterday to spend the next couple of days together since there is no school for the kids right now and something exciting is taking place here.  i can’t wait to share more with you all soon!

after several hours in the car from the drive down, we stopped by the lincoln memorial (it’s my absolute favorite) to stretch our legs (more like get all the wiggles out!) and “try” to talk the kids about the significance of the monument and area in general before heading to meet friends....

love-taza-whistler-8578m-5

before our time in victoria, we spent a quick weekend in whistler, british columbia, canada. and the entire time, we were like, wow this place is crazy beautiful. i’m so glad we detoured there for a couple days to see it! i actually didn’t take the camera out too much during our weekend, and we kept it pretty low key as we adjusted to the time change, but i did bring it with us when we visited alta lake one day and i’m glad i did because i love these photos (and the video too) a lot. we spent most of the day right beside the water, and the kids couldn’t get enough of the little fish swimming around and tried to catch a few in their buckets and give them names before releasing them again into the water....

i’m really excited to share some photos and a video we made from our time in victoria canada a few weeks ago! we have absolutely loved the chance we’ve gotten to explore some of the most beautiful places this past year as we’ve partnered with fairmont hotels and resorts. traveling with little ones is not the easiest, but i wouldn’t trade the memories and experiences we’ve been able to create together while doing so for anything....

excited to share a little video we made from our trip to switzerland! there is footage in here from our time in the swiss alps, meiringen, wengen, grindelwald and oeschinen (and our short afternoon passing through bern.) this might be my favorite video we’ve made, but i think it’s because this might be the most special trip we’ve taken and we fell so hard for switzerland....

here’s a big batch of some of my favorite photos from our first stop in switzerland. we spent our first few days in meiringen, an area where josh’s good friend from high school has lived for the past several years with her husband, who is from the area originally, and their two little ones.  the entire area was breathtaking, but the lake named lake engstlensee that our friends took us to, was on another level of beauty....

hello! sharing lots of photos today from the day we took a boat out around lake maggiore. this was so much fun! i don’t know why i get hesitant to do water activities with the kiddos, i always anticipate that they are going to hate it and we’re going to be stuck on a boat far away from land, but it turns out that all three of our kids are water babies through and through and never want to get back onto shore....

LOVE TAZA-15

i wanted to share some photos from last week in utah! it’s so funny, because i didn’t bring the camera out with me very much in utah, and so i didn’t think i really took very many photos, if any at all, but of course as i downloaded and went through them i had to laugh, because sure, most are random (what happens when you don’t have the camera handy during most picture worthy moments), but there were still a ton of photos....
