I am still working on our March video, but in the meantime I put together a little movie from our adventure strawberry picking last week. We have been going since Gunnar was in preschool and I was pregnant with Greta! I really need to find our photos from that year. We have been going every year since to Tanaka Farms, and it never disappoints. I feel like I'm getting the hang of our little video camera and getting pretty fast at putting these together. Hooray for a year of videos 2016!
I thought long and hard about what project I wanted to begin for 2016. 2015 was great, I loved our weekly family photo series and I know that I will cherish those forever. 2014 was the first year I embarked on a project for a whole year, and that was a weekly photo series of my children or something representational of them, 3 photos each week was a challenge but I can't believe how much they grew over the course of that year. I love photos, absolutely hold them dear and look back at them often. But I thought I would switch up 2016 a little. My kids love looking back at old videos of our family, and I thought about how often I too look back at special videos I made of our vacations or events.
Dun dun dun... I give you our first installment of my 2016 VIDEO series. YEP! I will create a little video for each month of 2016. They might include anything going on that month, from little snippets of our day to any vacation we might take that month, a family date, school stuff, etc. You just never know what the month will hold. So bear with me as I work on my video skills a little this year. I give you January 1/12 of our 2016 project, a little background if you don't follow me on Instagram. We had a fun family date to a local bouldering/rock climbing spot. The challenge is sticking to the right level, so the hand and foot holds are different colors depending on what level you are trying to do. The key is only using that level's color, these kids rocked the climbing and have schemes trying to get us to return shortly. I threw in some other fun clips of Gunnar's DJ elective showcase and a super short clip of the boys at a local golf course. Enjoy! It was fun putting this together.
I now know why I was taking video everywhere we went on this trip! I finally sat down with enough time and computer space to put this little home video together. I hope my kids will always remember this vacation and the memories we created on it. We had the time of our lives and I hope you enjoy this peek into our trip.
