UPDATE: New house, new adventures

2013 is already proving to be a busy yet fun year with a few adventures already under our belt! We started off the year by moving into a new house where we promptly got dumped on with crazy amounts of snow. We are loving the new neighborhood, the proximity to work, and are having a blast making the house feel like home. As you can see, the cats had no problem adjusting...

In Febuary we went to Lawton, OK to see my brother graduate from army basic training. We did the only thing there is to do in Lawton and went to the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge. Within the refuge sits the "The Holy City" a retro recreation of Israel where passion plays have been performed since 1935. Pretty interesting place. We ate some crazy good Texas Longhorn burgers at Meers, home of the best buger in Oaklahoma, and said to be one of the best in the country.

In March we drove up to Minneapolis, MN for a Spring break impromptu trip with our buddies Devon and Erica. We stopped for some art at the Walker Art Center (Painting by Lesley Vance). We had some great food and coffee at Icehouse, The Bad Waitress, Isles Bun and Coffee, and Spyhouse Coffee Shop. Shopped some swanky shops on Hennepin Ave. And we of course loaded up a trailer at Ikea before our ride home...

In May, we celebrated our 5 year anniversary in Puerto Rico! We flew into San Juan and hung out in the spanish forts of Old San Juan. Then we ferried over to Vieques where we stayed at Haciendo Tamarindo, lounged and snorkeled on various beaches, and sipped on Sangira. Our favorite meal of the trip was at El Quenepo where we ate yellowtail and an incredible variation of Mofongo. We ferried back across to the main island and stopped at El Yunque, the national rainforest outside of Fajardo. It was a glorious and restful vacation.
