Fairview

Hi everyone, it’s Josh. Our overnight trip to Fairview was super fun and I had a great time. The whole Cornell family came! We started out by driving up to the cabin which took about two hours. When we got there we went into the cabin to check it out and decide where we were…

Glamping at Bear Lake

Halle here, reporting for blogging duty.  For a fun summer get away, Cornell cousins at bear lake!! The drive was long, so we broke it up with fun lunch at a park, then visiting some cool hobbit holes up Logan Canyon in a little hike. Everyone just loved to run around and explore. We stayed…

Summer in Utah

The kids are going to blog about the main events of the summer, so I’ll take everything else!  First and foremost, meeting baby Cyrus!  We’ve all been anticipating this day.  And it didn’t disappoint.  He is the cutest human on the face of the earth.  Happy 4th of July!  And Happy Birthday Jhena!  We had…

Banks Bunch in Eden

It was our turn to plan the Banks family reunion. Initially we had decided on a big condo in Steamboat Colorado but my mom and dad didn’t feel up to travel (because of Covid and other reasons).  So luckily because of Covid we were able to cancel just a few weeks before and instead book…

Brian Head Trip with the Cornells

Hi, it’s Blake.  Our trip was really fun. We hiked a lot to see pretty things like waterfalls and cool canyons. One day we went to Bryce Canyon and  had lots of cool sites. Another day we went to this fun place with a zip line and bungee jumping which made it feel like you…

Final Day in Munich

Our last day in Munich started with us cooking breakfast in the Guest Kitchen. This was such a fun feature of our hotel! We were all ready for a break from bread so we had scrambled eggs, kartofulpoffer, fresh berries and juice. It was protein heaven for our carb soaked bodies. We stopped to show…

Neuschwanstein and Highline 179

Unbeknownst to us, Monday, Jan 6th was the Bavarian holiday of Epiphany. This meant that once again, grocery stores and shops were closed for the day. This didn’t throw too big a wrench into our plans—we ate breakfast at the hotel and snuck some sandwiches to eat for lunch later. We called them our pocket…

Spy Museum and Mauer Park Fleamarket

Saturday we took the kids to the Deutsches Spionage Museum. This was pretty fun, and would have been even more fun if it wasn’t so crowded. The two run away hits were the lie detector test and the laser maze. Then the kids all dressed up as spies for some pictures. We had planned on…

Tagging the Berlin Wall and Spreewald

Jan 2 was one of my favorite days of the trip. We got breakfast and lunch food at REWE and then all met up at a spray paint shop called Writer’s Corner. Nat and I got a little lost along the way when we had to stop to take care of Simon but eventually we…

First Day of 2020 in Berlin

Jan 1, 2020 was our day to explore Berlin. We slept in and let the kids play together all morning. The city was pretty quiet, with most stores and shops being closed down for the holiday. We started in the picturesque Nicholaiviertel and made our way to Berliner Dom. Rusty and Josh, my parents and…
