Happy New Year!

How was your December holiday break? Did you over-indulge in all the foodings and now feeling guilty like me? How was your Christmas day? Met up with relatives you hadn’t seen in a while? How about the New Year? How did you usher it in?

The boys and I were down at the Coast -in Watamu, Malinidi for the last days of 2015 and three days into the new year. We were there with some of their cousins, aunts, uncles and grandma’s – eight adults and six kids -just like we did last year. We stayed at Turtle Bay again, which is such an awesome vacation spot for families with kids. Turtle Bay has a host of organized fun activities for kids, which keeps them busy and well entertained. Since I became a mum, it’s become normal practice that whatever I choose to do, I have to first consider the kids, and this applies to vacations as well. “Will the kids have fun?” Is the first question I ask myself, and Turtle Bay has proven to be the coolest place -so far. Do you know of any other family-friendly vacation spots that me and other families could try out? Feel free to share in the comments section below.

I didn’t get to take much photos while there, because I was busy overfeeding and lazying around under the shade while bonding with mwarikhwa Carol for most of the time -when not running after the kids. I will however share with you a few of those that Baba Kitty took.





For now, I wish you a blessed 2016, and I hope that it will be your best year -yet. May this verse dwell in your heart all year long:

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future“.

– Jeremiah 29:11
