Ian and Alli's Gymnastics USA Olympics Event 2024

Since we got back to Florida, we've really wanted to get the kids into some sort of physical activity. Ian used to love bouncing on the trampoline, and Alli has really enjoyed watching gymnastics on YouTube. Lucky for us, we happen to be near the largest gymnastics school in Florida! Gymnastics USA! 

So, ever since November, Alli and Ian have been attending multiple times a week, trying out different disciplines to see what they like and where their skills lie. 

Ian spent the first few months in Ninja Kids, and then moved into Tumbling. Alli has progressed through Beginner Gymnastics all the way up to Advanced Gymnastics! She's strong and determined! 

For the past couple of months, they've been learning a specific routine to perform at their end of the season Olympics! It's a big event for them and so we invited all the family to come out to watch! Although many would have liked to attend but couldn't, we still had a very strong turnout with both sets of grandparents and Uncle Donald!

Anniversary Trip to Tahiti and Moorea 2023 - Pt1 2023/01/05

From January 2023. 

Theresa and I are going to a trip to celebrate our anniversary! We've been to a lot of fun places, like Curacao, Bora Bora, a motu beside Bora Bora, and Hawaii, but there's one that we can't help but compare all our get-away vacations to. It where we went for our 10-year anniversary. The island of Moorea near Tahiti! Now, for our 23rd anniversary, we're headed back! We stopped in Colorado to leave the kids with Gram and Pop Pop.

Buffalo Wild Wings Parmesan Garlic Sauce flavored popcorn taste test comparison

While wandering around Sams Club, Theresa texted me a photo of a new offering from Smartfood Popcorn! They've previously given us Nacho Cheese Doritos popcorn and Cap'n Crunch Berries Popcorn.  

Today though we're trying a match-up with Buffalo Wild Wings and their Garlic Parmesan wing sauce! I loved BW3 wings in college and Garlic Parmesan was definitely something I'd get on 25 cent wing night. It was even better on 50 cent chicken leg day! 

So if we're going to try this Garlic Parmesan sauce popcorn, I'm going to make my own drumsticks and cover them in the real Buffalo Wild Wing Garlic Parmesan sauce!

So today we'll be adding Snickers Fruit & Nut, Snickers Kesar Pista, and Snickers Butterscotch to our list of items we've tried!
