New England – October 2008

New England – October 2008

I’ve always wanted to take a trip to New England in the fall, mostly to see the foliage, but also because I have idealistic vision of that part of the country. Half of me would love to live there, but the other half knows that I couldn’t live in a small idyllic town (um, tried that in Coleman). So when Scott and my schedule aligned at the beginning of October, I jumped on the chance […]

Toronto – August 2008

Toronto – August 2008

It has been four years since we made our last family trek up to Toronto, so I was thrilled when Dad and Beth mentioned last Christmas that they wanted to take us up there. I was thrilled because I love visiting my grandparents–especially in Toronto where I grew up, but also because Scott has never traveled up that way and I really wanted him to see the city. NIAGARA!!! A trip to Toronto would be […]

Buenos Aires Day 4 – Palermo and Home

Buenos Aires Day 4 – Palermo and Home

ADIOS BUENOS AIRES!!! Since we had to leave for the airport in the early afternoon, our last day in Buenos Aires wasn’t quite as full as the others. We had to pick up Kim’s friend’s luggage to take back to the States, so we went to her flat in Palermo. While in Palermo (seems far from where our apartment was, but Kim insists it is the same barrio), we walked around a street market and […]

Buenos Aires Day 3 – Florida, Plaza de Mayo, La Boca, Tango!

Buenos Aires Day 3 – Florida, Plaza de Mayo, La Boca, Tango!

The Day When We Tour the City as Only a Tourist Can (on a bus) I have to admit. I was a big fat grump at the beginning of Day 3. A late start again. And I’m starving. Not a good combination for me. I didn’t want to take any pictures until I got some food in my tummy–but of course we had to stop at every freakin’ statue and building along the way. :) […]

Buenos Aires Day 2 – Recoleta, Santa Fe, Puerto Madero

Buenos Aires Day 2 – Recoleta, Santa Fe, Puerto Madero

Don’t Cry For Me Argentina!! Since Kim is nocturnal and we didn’t get to bed until late the night before, we had kind of late start to our second day in Buenos Aires (chill out Trish!!). Our day began, of course, with food. Jessica met the three of us at a little pizza restaurant around the corner from our apartment and we quickly devoured two pizzas–one with pineapple and ham (yes, we Americans call that […]

Buenos Aires Day 1 – San Telmo and Palermo

Buenos Aires Day 1 – San Telmo and Palermo

BIENVENIDOS!!When Mom told me she was going to visit Kim in Argentina, I said in my most whiny voice “I wanna go!!” She said, “Well come with me.” I didn’t think I was going to be able to get the time off work, but I mustered up the courage and things were set into place. There was no way I could pass up this once in a lifetime opportunity–even if it meant I would have […]

South Padre Island, Texas – New Years 2007

South Padre Island, Texas – New Years 2007

LETS GO FLY A KITE!! Since Scott is from Harlingen in the Rio Grande Valley, we head down south thataway about once a year. Since New Years was going to fall on a long weekend, we decided to spend the weekend on South Padre Island with Adam and Bekah. While the weather in Dallas wasn’t too cold, we couldn’t have asked for a more pleasant stay on the island. We did the usual stuff: stayed […]

Camping Wrap Up – Day 3

Camping Wrap Up – Day 3

PACKING UP, BOATING, GOING HOME The camping trip is over, but it went by so quickly. It is agreed that we all desperately need a shower, but we all had such a great time! We cooked one last breakfast on the fire and packed up the tents. I was sad that the camping portion of our trip was over, but we still had a few hours to kill…so we headed to the marina and rented […]

Eisenhower State Park Day 2

Eisenhower State Park Day 2

CAMPING DAY 2: Eating, Hiking, Napping, Eating!!! Scott, Chaz, and I were the first ones up in the morning, so we started cooking breakfast. Truthfully it took a little while for Chaz and Scott to get the fire started (weren’t you guys in boy scouts??), but soon we were on our way! We cooked eggs, pancakes, bacon, and sausage. It was a little tough to get everything organized and cooking the way we wanted it, […]

Camping? You mean, in a tent?

Camping?  You mean, in a tent?

EISENHOWER STATE PARK, TEXAS (DAY 1) We’ve talked about taking a family camping trip for years, but since we Kuettel girls have never truly experienced camping–yes, camping in a tent, all we’ve done is talk. Finally, we picked a date, Chaz recommended Eisenhower State Park on Lake Texoma (Texas side), and off we were! Scott and I both worked on Friday, so we met everyone around 8:00. Eisenhower SP is about a hour north of […]
