Dry and Wild Miami

Thanks to a tropical storm, half of our stay in Miami for Brian’s birthday was a bit wet. However, we took full advantage of the outside when the rain went away. Here are some highlights!

Wet and Wild Miami

Memorial Day weekend brought a super quick birthday trip to Miami, one of Brian’s most favorite cities. Half the stay was pretty rainy, and here’s how we braved the storms…

Close to the Action

Our first Major League Baseball game of the season was at Nationals Park, where thanks to a game that honored little leaguers around the area, we got to walk around the field before the first pitch. It was a bit sweltering, and the Nats did not end up winning, but it was an amazing experience…

Mother’s Day 2018

Mother’s Day weekend came and went quickly with an action-packed weekend around town. What began with some tee ball and a trip to Shirlington for lunch, ended with a lovely brunch in DC and dinner by the house. Being spoiled was tough to give up!

Fiesta 5K in 2018

For the 5th year in a row, we’ve had the opportunity to participate in the Fiesta 5K to support the Johns Hopkins Packard Center for ALS research. Colin was in a competitive mood and determined to finish first for Team Big Walt and Mike (he succeeded with a time of 48 minutes and 31 seconds)….

A Punta Cana Round Up

After a series of blog posts about our trip to Punta Cana, we had to share just one more round up of our final memories!

A Day at Sea

Thanks to new friends at Hispaniola Aquatic Adventures, we got out of the resort to enjoy some time on the sea. We snorkeled, learned how to enjoy coconut water, had a fabulous meal and played around in the shallow waters. A perfect half-day on the sea!

Paradisus Paradise

As mentioned, we enjoyed our stay in Punta Cana, and specifically The Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real. Here are highlights from the pool and around the resort.
