Our New Years Day Gorge Adventure

Happy New Year!! After not posting much here in 2016 (which was actually one of our busiest years of travel/life – I’d love to share some of our trips!!), I couldn’t let this post go unwritten. After all, we’ve shared our New Year’s Day Gorge adventures every year since moving to Portland.

Past adventures: 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012

In years past, the Gorge has been SUPER windy … this year, we got a windless day. While the wind is pretty fun, Alba could actually enjoy the day without the fear of being blown away. It was a cold day, but so beautiful.

As always, it’s such a joy to show Alba little pieces of her world. I love watching her soak in the world – it’s the best gift we could ask for.

Next year, we are so excited to take this trip with BOTH of our kids. Oh yeah, we are having another baby!!! Baby Stadick 2.0 will be joining us late summer. We’re over-the-moon (but I’ve gotta tell you, I’m pretty over the 1st trimester … it’s been rough). So, here’s to making 2017 quite a year. More soon!
