2011 has been a great year for us! We started off the year by boarding the mountains in Banff, followed by a trip to Redlands, CA and Los Angeles, CA in February. While in California, we got to hang out with friends, go to a Lakers game in Staples Center, climb the rocks in Joshua Tree, walk the Hollywood Walk of Fame, ride the roller coasters in Six Flags, and eat the best fried chicken in the world @ Roscoe’s – endorsed by both Snoop Dogg and President Obama.
We were in Vancouver for May Long to visit my/Kendra’s family. Nicola came to visit that weekend – and we did the shopping and dinner. We got to battle it out with Nicola at Rapstar – and it was easy to Get Low and Crank That!
Paula & Loz/Mum & Big Poppa came for a visit. We got to go shopping in Calgary, enjoy nature in Canmore, and see Lake Louise. They were also the first to see what the new condo looked like & we had celebratory drinks and appetizers in what was quite possibly the nicest day of the year! If we haven’t told you already, bought a new condo – two levels, with an amazing rooftop patio, right downtown – and got possession on July 12th.
Went to Winnipeg in June for my/Kendra’s brother’s high school grad and was in Whistler for a beautiful wedding in August and for my/Matt’s 31st birthday!
Kendra got us a trip to my homeland for my birthday. The funny thing was when we were in Jamaica, no one thought I was black…probably because of my pasty white skin! We had quite the experiences in Jamaica – from climbing the waterfalls in Dunn’s River Falls, to seeing where Bob Marley grew up and walking around & touching where his body laid to rest, to almost getting kidnapped as we ventured into town – which was one of the worst decisions ever made…it was still an amazing 7 days of nothing but Red Stripe and Rum!
2011 was a great year and we are looking forward to 2012. We are looking forward to seeing all of you hopefully one day soon! Merry Christmas everyone!
