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)….

Springtime Ball

Colin’s first weekend of t-ball felt a whole lot like winter, but the cold did not dampen his enthusiasm! He, along with his team of Mariners, had a strong showing on the field and off (they know how to have a good time on the playground too!).

Easter 2018!

Another year and another fabulous Easter! There were a few firsts this year though, as it was the first time the Easter Bunny visited the Tucker residence, and the first family Easter brunch. After the morning together, the afternoon was all about family time with great company, food and time outside hunting eggs!

Springtime Snow

So we were basically snow-less all winter, and it took the first 2 days of spring to see the white stuff out in full force. Some of us were enjoying the weather, others not so much.

For the fifth time in a row, we spent a cold, winter weekend in warm and wet Great Wolf Lodge. Little did we know we’d start a tradition after our trip to Florida was cancelled at the last minute so many years ago. This year, Owen was a much more active participant – and the…

Fun with the Animals

Four years earlier, Colin visited Sarasota Jungle Gardens for the first time. Now, it was Owen’s turn to enjoy the fun, too! Here was a highlight of our adventures…and our final night in Florida. A video with some action, too!

Chilly End to 2017

In what seemed like a good idea when the temperature was still in the 50s, we got tickets to ring in New Years’ Eve at Busch Gardens’ Christmas Town. The below-freezing reality of the day was a bit of a challenge, but we managed to fit in a lot as we celebrated the end of…

White Christmas!

While there has been snow on the ground in Christmases past, I can’t remember the last time I woke up on Christmas morning to falling snow. So amazing! The day only got better as the boys opened their presents and spent another fun-filled afternoon with family!

On the Move!!

Well, it finally happened! After weeks of standing and the occasional step, Owen finally figured out how to put one foot in front of the other. Heaven help us!
