Last Bit of Holiday Magic

On the last day possible, we soaked up some holiday magic at Meadowlark Winter Walk of Lights. It was a bright spot in one of the dreariest months of the year for sure and a tradition we’ve come to truly enjoy! With warm coats and hot chocolate, we set out to see it all!

Winter Ball

Activities thankfully move indoors during the winter, with basketball and soccer clinics keeping the kids busy during the weekends…

Bahama Mama (and Dad and Kids)

After a few short weeks at home, we escaped the cold once again and were treated to a lovely weekend in Nassau, Bahamas – with plenty of sun and warmth (a far cry from 50-degree colder weather and snow when we landed). We enjoyed Baha Mar’s water park and pools every day, and ate great….

En Mexico (Otra Vez)

Back for More Cruising!

Christmas Day 2023

We didn’t manage to sleep very well, but we were rewarded with an exciting Christmas morning filled with Santa-driven surprises and a relaxing morning to try and recuperate!

It was a gloomy Christmas Eve, but a fun one with family and a little adventure as we got out to the White House to see the National Christmas Tree before a Christmas Eve dinner and gifts with some very excited boys!

High Christmas Tea and More

The holidays give all sorts of excuses for fun traditions, from movies to high tea to cookie decorating – and we managed to do it all…in one day! From NoVA mall to NoVA mall, we indulged in treats for the eyes and the mouth as we went from Wonka to the Ritz holiday tea, followed…
