Moving right along

Since we have been in Naples, we have really taken advantage of the outside activities available here. We have many parks within about a five to ten minute drive, plus beautiful beaches a couple of miles down the road. Even though the weather has been cooler than normal, we have still enjoyed being outside.

e have been really blessed over the last few weeks to have been visited by many people! It started with my Nana & Auntie Margaret from Britain.

Not only have we had family visiting but also some great friends!

We had a great visit with the Nason family this weekend, but I'll save that for another post! It has been great to see people from "home" both our British home and our Alaskan home! We have plenty of room for more. Come and see us!

On a side note my website Mamas Little Notebook is back up and running! Check it out for recipe ideas, fun kids stuff, home tips and lots of other fun things!

Back By Popular Demand!

Ok, no more excuses! Here is an update...finally! We are alive, well, happy and enjoying life in Florida! I guess the last you really heard from us we were still in Tennessee  in the throws of moving. We left Portland on January 7th, Jasen in the moving truck, and me, my mom and all of the kids in the van. Our trip was delayed a day, so that being the case we made the decision to drive the whole way in one day rather than split it up into two. Twelve hours is a LONG time for kids to spend in a vehicle, but they were incredible and the drive was without incident. We arrived in Sebring late in the evening and spent a few days relaxing there and then headed down to Naples where we have been settling into our new life.

We love it here. The kids are happy, Jasen is enjoying his job and I am starting to find my way around! There are so many things I could say about this area, the beaches are beautiful everything is neat, clean and tidy, there are alot of great shopping areas, and lots to do for the kids. So, that's a little update. I have lots more to tell, and many pictures, but for now here are a few pictures of our last few weeks in TN. I know Christmas is along way gone but enjoy them anyway!
