Our year in pictures

On a personal level, 2016 could not have been any better. So thankful that we were able to do some of the things we did last year. We checked lots of the items from the bucket list... Here is to hoping that we are able to do more (much more) in 2017.

Here we go, our year in {instagram} pictures:

January: We welcomed the year with an overnight stay at the Len Foote Hike Inn at Amicalola Falls

February: We hiked Blood Mountain on the Appalachian trail in Georgia

March: V competed on her first skating competition (took second place)

April: Went to Winston Salem NC, hung out with our friend Maria

May: Went to Peru's Sacred Valley - Visited Cuzco, Ollantaytambo and utterly amazing Machu Picchu - As documented here and here

June: Went to Portugal's Algarve and Alentejo regions and beautiful Lisbon - Took a little detour to Istanbul (always a favorite). We documented our adventures here and here

July: Went to the Canadian Rockies - Had a great time in Banff National Park

August: Went to the amusement park, blueberry picking, hung out in Madison GA, celebrated birthdays (milestone ones: V is no longer a tween and M is double digits!!!), they started a new year in school (last years in Middle school and elementary school). Our friends from Germany came to visit

October: Went camping at the beach in Florida for the long weekend We also dressed up for Halloween and hiked the North Georgia Mountains to take in the Fall colors

November: Went to Patagonia (highlights: Ice trekking in Perito Moreno glacier and hiking in El Chalten) and {utterly gorgeous} Buenos Aires for Thanksgiving. See pictures here and here

December: Packed the month full of holiday cheer: Went to see the Christmas lights, baked {lots of} cookies, went to see the Nutcracker, made Christmas ornaments... Ah, it was a festive month. We ended the year with family in the North Georgia Mountains with more hiking, drinking and being merry...

2016 was fun filled, packed with lots of family activities. I hope yours was a wonderful one. Hoping for an even better 2017.
