Now that 2013 is here, I wanted to take a look back on 2012. It was an amazing year! So much happened. I definitely learned a lot about myself this past year. And it went by so fast!
We had a lot of family fun this year:
Camping at Hatcreek – This is a special place for our family and I Love that I can share this wonderful place with my boys. I’m also very grateful that they got to spend time with their great grandpa who has had such a big influence on the person I am today.
Fishing Trip to Eagle Lake – so proud of the boys for waking up at 3:30 in the morning for three days straight and toughed out 5-6 hours of fishing. Seppe wound up being the one to catch not one but 2, fish.
San Francisco Zoo with our close friends the McCauley’s – the boys had so much fun. It was everyone’s first time to the SF zoo.
Great America w/ season passes – we enjoyed having the McCauley’s join us and we went back many times until the season ended.
TBall for the Boys (Seppe’s 1st year, Gio’s 2nd) Seppe was on the Mets and Gio was a Pirate this year.
Disneyland and Universal Studios Vacation – 3 days of Disney and 1 day at Universal. Seppe enjoyed every minute of it. Gio was only happy when he was on a ride. He did not like waiting. lol.
Vegas Trip for Benny and Me
Berkley Shoe Camp Out (first and last!)
We had a scary moment in March when Ben wound up in the hospital. He came close to dying but we were so fortunate that the doctors were able save him. It really helped put things in perspective for me and made me appreciate just how precious life is.
For my Personal Fitness, I achieved so many goals and went well pass what I thought I was going to when the year started. I learned that I can always push myself harder.
Completed BeachBody Turbo Fire Challenge
Fist 10K (Gio’s first 1/2 mile race)
Big Sur 9miler (w/ Aunt and Sister)
Disneyland Half Marathon (mini vacation w/ Benny) – first half marathon
Thanksgiving Run To Feed the Hungry (w/ the family) – beat my time from last year :-)

Started playing volleyball again :-)
I had so much fun in 2012. It’s been the happiest and healthiest so far. And I can’t wait for More in 2013!
