Cool with Friends

The heat of summer still seems to come as a shock, even with a few years in the Middle East under our belts. Luckily, we have friends with a pool membership to have fun and cool off!

Fathers Day 2K18

Like any good Father’s Day with small children, Brian got most of the day off to relax. He enjoyed a massage and got to try his hand at making chocolate truffles – which the rest of his family gladly sampled after his return home. Mix in some BBQ for good measure, and it was a…

A Wild Party

We were one with the animals for a birthday party at Roer’s Zoofari. We explored via bus and on foot and got to feed animals big and small. Here are some of the highlights!

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!
