We don’t really have the words to go along with this post, so for now we will let the video and photos speak for us… Mommy and baby Maui are doing fantastic and our hearts are filled with love and joy! (Full labor video, plus 15 photos!)
In March of 2016 we joined some friends for a hike at the Joshua Tree National Park in California, and while digging through our archives recently we came across the photos from the afternoon and figured it was as good a time as any to share them! (#TBT) We can’t wait to take our baby girl on some adventures like this!
On Earth Day we drove an hour north of our home in Long Beach to hike three and a half miles round trip to Eaton Canyon Falls. It was a beautiful day and Darlene did amazing at 34 weeks pregnant!
We shot so many awesome photos on our trip around the world that it was impossible to share them all while we were en route, so here’s a bonus gallery of 30 pictures from various parts of Bali, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Our first week in California was jam-packed with everything from moving back into our house and going to the doctor to hanging out with friends, working and getting our baby’s room ready. This is our final “Travel Update” video to end our series, and we capped it off with some things we learned while circling the globe…
We kept our baby girl’s name a secret for a while, but we are finally ready to share it with everyone! We first told our family and friends at our baby showers in Buffalo and Louisiana, and now we can tell you too! Here it is!
On the final week of our three and a half month trip around the world we were bouncing around between Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas visiting Fat’s family. While in the South we made a stop at Levitate Float Center in Hammond, Louisiana to have our first experience in a float tank!
We are officially back in the U.S., and even though the trip isn’t over and we are technically still traveling we didn’t do enough while hanging out with Darlene’s family for a weekly recap video and photo gallery. Instead we have a hilarious video that explains a handful of things we didn’t even realize missed about our home country until we got back here. Number three will leave you in stitches!
The last country on our trip around the world was Poland, which is where Darlene’s family is from. Darlene grew up eating Polish food, and we were absolutely blown away by the amazing vegan restaurants and food we found in Krakow and Warsaw.
