FL Fun – Part 1

In an attempt to briefly escape the cold, we ventured south to Florida for the weekend. And while it wasn’t exactly warm the whole time, it was a solid 30 degrees warmer than home, so much appreciated, if even for a few days. Our first two days were filled with grandparents, pirates and playgrounds, and…

A Euro Photo Shoot

Thanks to AirBnB Experiences, half of the family got to experience a photo shoot across the pond while in London for a week. Our photographer Luis traveled from Mexico to settle in Europe for a while to photograph tourists and fashionistas alike, before eventually settling in California one day. We enjoyed his company and checking…

Parisian Diversion

M and C took advantage of being in close proximity, and had a quick overnight in Paris. It was C’s first visit to the city and country, and M’s in more than two decades. We took in the major sites of the city during our stay, and enjoyed some of the best treats on offer….

Ending 2018 in the UK

A quick three years went by, but M and C made it back to London! Unfortunately the whole family couldn’t come, but we brought back plenty of Thornton’s and Cadbury chocolate to make up for it. We had a quiet New Years Eve, and tried to soak up as much holiday-themed fun and treats as…

Christmas Fun 2018

Christmas Eve 2018!

Another year older and another Christmas Eve in CT! The cousins were full of energy, as were the adults during the gag gifts, so the night flew by!

Pre-Christmas Fun

The weekend before Christmas was quite an adventure with a Hoyas basketball game and the journey north to CT for the holiday festivities. We even got a special visit from Santa before he set off on his big trip around the world to deliver presents!

Our 1st 2018 Christmas – MD!

Christmas came early with a family celebration in Hagerstown! From the snacking upon arrival to the inappropriate game of Cards Against Humanity, it was a weekend to be remembered!

Getting Christmas-Ready (and Losing a Tooth!)

While we got in a visit to Santa quite early, we were a little behind on decorating the house. With a little more than two weeks to go until Christmas, we found a tree and got our house feeling quite festive! It was overall an exciting day in anticipation of the holidays, but also because…
