On Vineyard Time

After a three-year hiatus, we spent some quality time on Martha’s Vineyard. Our first day, in fact, was pretty eventful with a tour across the Cape and into Vineyard Haven and Edgartown. Here are the highlights.

Fun at the Fair

Another great year was had at the Arlington County Fair. It was only slightly cooler, but a lot more active, with four fully engaged boys on the rides, eating treats and getting all the free swag they could carry!

A Nats Welcome

We had to welcome the Pohorylos to the DC area in style, and that meant sweating it out in the August heat at Nationals Park. It was multiple hours of fun and chaos, and we wouldn’t have wanted to enjoy it any other way!

On the High Seas

While we’ve covered our pirate themed adventures before, we have yet to capture time as pirates closer to home. It was our second trip on the Potomac, and even better as O was able to experience all the fun. Here are some of the highlights!

Staycation on the Water

Like last year, we enjoyed a quick trip to National Harbor for a change of scenery, some time in the pool and the infamous “silent disco” party. This year was much rainier than last, but that didn’t dampen our spirits as there was plenty to do indoors.

All Star Day

With the MLB All Star Game in town, we had to soak up some of the action. Since many of the free activities were outside in 90+-degree heat, we sucked it up and bought tickets to FanFest for some air-conditioned fun. And, it did not disappoint! There were balloon animals, face painting, skills practices and…

Another 4th with Friends

Like last year, we enjoyed a fun 4th at home with friends! We had the extra fun of sparklers and a few fireworks that were a huge hit!

Independence Ball

On the eve of Independence Day, the family set out for something truly American – baseball. At Nats Park, the Nationals took on the Red Sox. While the family was somewhat divided, overall, we were happy to see the Sox take home a solid victory! (BT Edit: Questionable use of the word “overall”)

Cool with Friends

The heat of summer still seems to come as a shock, even with a few years in the Middle East under our belts. Luckily, we have friends with a pool membership to have fun and cool off!
