The Big 5-0

When your birthday falls in the middle of the week, there’s only so much celebrating to pack in. But we made the most of it with treats for breakfast and a lovely (childless) dinner out to celebrate the big 5-0!

A Different May 5K

While the Fiesta 5K was still virtual this year, half of the family participated in another one – the Glebe 5K! Colin got a personal best time and placed 5th among the 9 year olds running. Megan was glad to finish and wasn’t too far from a personal best. Both couldn’t walk the next day,…

Easter Times Two

Fresh off our return from our cruise and a day at Disney, there was something to look forward to despite the end of vacation – Easter treats! On Easter morning, the Easter Bunny had noted there were baskets waiting at home for the boys, and they couldn’t wait to find them!

A Star Wars Milestone Bday Celebration

Happy 50th to Brian! To celebrate, we went all out with a VIP Tour of Hollywood Studios – and in particular Galaxy’s Edge – after getting off our cruise ship for the week. We saw every inch of Batuu, rode all the rides and then some, and got to experience the Disney magic one final…

Disney in the Caribbean

Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, was the final stop in our eastern Caribbean cruise. Chilly sea water and water slides dominated our short stay, but it was a memorable one!

A Tiny Taste of the BVI

Our first taste of the BVI was a little more condensed than expected, as our boat tour to little islands around the main island was cancelled due to weather. That didn’t deter from a great visit though, with a fun speedboat transfer to Cane Garden Bay Beach and a lovely time enjoying the area.

Back in St. Thomas

It had been nearly 15 years since the Tucker adults were in St. Thomas, and we decided to head to somewhere new – Sapphire Beach. This little slice of blue-green heaven had everything we needed…a stretch of sand, beach bar and restaurant and even a marina with jet skis (too bad the water was too…

A First Family Cruise

We set sail this spring break on the high seas for a trip to the eastern Caribbean and back. Within moments of boarding, finding out there was all-you-can-eat ice cream and soda sold Colin from the start. Owen was more impressed with seeing Mickey and friends. Here are a few highlights from being on the…

Spring Sports

Both boys have taken to the field this spring, but in different sports. Here’s to some fun adventures in baseball and soccer!
