Everett’s First Big Adventures – US Islands

Just after Everett turned three months old, it was time to head on. We’d spent an incredible nine months in New Zealand, made amazing connections with new friends, created beautiful memories, and truly cherished our time there. We decided to make our first stop in a place that wasn’t too far away, that was new to all of us, and that was filled with people we love. We made that stop Hawaii – with Jenn, Jerry, Tobias, Chloe, and Phoebe. We had such a nice time catching up with them (it’d been close 1.5yrs since we’d seen them, aside from Jenn who’d come to be with us during Everett’s first week). It was a great first adventure for Everett and a wonderful opportunity to catch up.

Then, after a quick landing in Mexico (more on that in the next post), we headed off to Puerto Rico. Ross had won a trip through work, and since none of us had been there before, we took the opportunity to go and see what it was all about. We spent all of our time at the resort, which was a totally different type of travel than we’re used to, but really enjoyed ourselves. It was truly relaxing and the perfect type of vacation for a family with a four month old.

About Ross & Lindsay

"There he was in the parking lot, the guy who'd been smiling at me for the last three weeks, it was the perfect opportunity." - "What seems like yesterday, I was walking into the gym when I heard the most beautiful voice in the world. I still can't believe she had the guts to beat me to it." - "He was cute, funny and intriguing, giving me no choice but to say yes to a trip to Estes Park." - "Our trip to Estes was great, I started to get the feeling she was more than I expected. I took the opportunity to tell her I was leaving to Spain, for an undetermined stay." - "Dang!, I'd fallen for a guy who was leaving the country. At least he'd introduced me to The Beatles and Jack Bauer, I was hoping he didn't stay long." - "Spain, what a beautiful place. I was so glad she came out to travel with me." - "It was the best time of my life. He opened my eyes to a whole new world." - "Then it was my time to come home, I was out of money and reality was calling my name." - "I was so glad he was coming home. No more long distance phone calls, no more sad lonely days." - "Back in the states, work, 14th Avenue and her. "Babe, do you like dogs?" - "We'd found the perfect dog, Rocky Raccoon made us a party of three. Our little family was just about perfect, but something was still missing." - "I had an interview with a company back in Spain, but they liked her resume better than mine." - "Could this have been true? Did he find us both English speaking jobs back in Sevilla?" - "Rocky wasn't happy about the 14hr flight, but I think he agrees with us both now, that living abroad is a dream come true." - Two of Us Writing is a glimpse into our journey living deliberately.
