An Oinktastic Dream Come True

Even since Owen heard about Peppa Pig World coming to Florida, it’s been his dream. He’s prepared each day since the early days of the pandemic by listening to episodes at breakfast and watching shows on the weekend (among his many other interests). Finally, his dream came true just a week after the park opened!…

Spider-Man, Spider-Man!

We had such a great experience with our own movie theater last year, that we decided to do it again with some Spider-Man! Seeing it with cousins made it all the more fun, and the action-packed movie was amazing on the big screen.

More Winter Staycation Fun

We stayed close to home President’s Day Weekend, hopeful that next year we’ll return to Great Wolf Lodge again!

Family Fun Weekend

We broke up the typical weekend with extended family fun – and got to experience some activities we haven’t done in forever, including Disney on Ice and bowling!


It happens but once or twice a year, but as a treat for “both sides,” it was a weekend of freedom from each other! Just a half hour apart, but a world away, when the kids and parents are separated. The adults headed to Berkeley Springs for some good food and catching up on sleep,…

A Winter Staycation

We pivoted to stay close to home for MLK Jr. Weekend and lived it up near Eastern Market! We had the best foods from the area, explored the market and relaxed like any other chill weekend at home.

We had a family first in the Florida Keys – a seaplane adventure to the Dry Tortugas National Park. We had this little slice of paradise to ourselves for the better part of the morning and enjoyed the stay among the soft sand and coral reefs.

A Ray of Holiday Sunshine

Back at the start of 2021, we had a dream to spend the end of December in the warm sunshine of the Florida Keys. We went for it, and the dream came true! We escaped the cold, dreary DC for a few days of fun in the sun.

Christmas Chaos

Once again, Christmas was the right amount of fun, magic and chaos!
