Highlights from 2009


2009 was a big year for traveling. Gene and I traveled to Europe over the winter holiday, visiting London, Oxfordshire and Warwick Castle. I went to Vegas for Michele’s 30th birthday with a pack of females and Adam, to Disneyland for Christine’s 30th, and to Napa for my 30th. Michele and I took a roadtrip through Forks, WA (the Twilight town, yes). We took a trip on Adam’s houseboat, and another trip on Adam’s houseboat. I traveled to Santa Barbara to watch two of my best friends get married. And Gene and I got engaged ourselves!

Here are some more highlights from 2009:
