Life can get so hectic sometimes, but as family, we make sure to spend and enjoy quality time together. We love going on road trips and making memories through travels whether locally or exploring new places, either a big or small city.
We’ve talked about all the family fun memories that we’ve made in 2016 here on the blog. I’m recapping them all for you today just in case you missed them.
The year 2016 was a great year for us. Although the beginning of the year was difficult with hubby’s near-death experience in January, we were able to bounce back immediately and it made for a wonderful year with lots of amazing memories. Sometimes, life can totally throw you a curve ball and if you’re not strong enough to handle it, you’ll strike out. Do remember that God won’t give you problems that you can’t handle. And also remember that there is always a rainbow after the rain. So if you’re going through something right now, remember that that is only temporary and will soon pass.
Our son loves playing soccer and last year was extra-special for him and for the whole family because he was accepted onto the middle school soccer team. That was really a proud moment for him as well as for us. I am so proud of my only son and I shared all of my sentiments to him in a letter. Read all about our posts about our beloved kiddo who is also an A Honor Roll student and a member of the school concert band.
The husband has always loved playing golf, but it has been years since he played the last time. After his heart attack in January, he realized he needs to have exercise so he thought of playing golf again while walking the course, not riding.
Like I mentioned earlier, we spend family quality time together as much as we can and I couldn’t be more thankful of the time we spent together as family last year. You can check more of our travels in my Best of 2016 travel post.
Lastly, for the first time ever, I created a family Christmas card and I sent it not only to family and friends here in the U.S., but also to my family back home in the Philippines. You can read the post why I only started sending Christmas cards last year and why I chose that photo which was taken in 2010, our first Christmas here in the U.S.
And that’s it. Here’s to wishing another wonderful 2017 full of amazing family memories for us and for your family as well. Happy 2017!
