5th February at Great Wolf

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!

Picking Out a Tree

After a fun few days, it was off to begin the holiday season in full force by picking out a Christmas tree! We headed again to Ticonderoga Farm to enjoy a beautiful morning in the country. And, of course, we came home with a tree! The crew shakes out the tree then packages up for…

Turkey Day 2017

Turkey day was very close to home this year – in fact, it was in our home for the first time! It was a great day filled with good food, family and fun. We even kicked off the holiday weekend with a rare kid-free night out before the big day! Colin starts off Thanksgiving dinner…

O Turns One!

We made it a year! It seemed like yesterday that Owen was on his way. Soon, we was here and coming home from the hospital, and then moving to a new home and now celebrating the many adventures of fall! Owen ate his cupcake like a champ, and enjoyed being spoiled by family!

Hollywood Thrilled

While we recounted a number of adventures in Hollywood Studios with Colin’s birthday adventures, we had many more highlights to share! Thanks to the Star Wars VIP Tour, we got to march behind the First Order. And if look carefully at the 1:48 mark, Colin’s idenification is checked by a Stormtrooper!
