Gal Pal Time in Charleston!

About once a year, the Golin gals gather for a weekend to reconnect and recharge – more than 15 years since sitting in the Quad. While we were unexpectedly down one, we enjoyed the food, spa and weather of Charleston for those who made it!

Lucky 7th at GWL

Some fateful bad weather steered us to Great Wolf Lodge in 2014, and we’ve been back every year since. This year proved just as fun (and exhausting) as ever!

Play (Basket)ball!

The anticipation had been building, and the day had arrived – Colin’s first basketball game! He had been wanting to get on the court for a while, but there aren’t any programs until 1st grade. He faced his best friend’s school and gave it his all as part of the Glebe Niners!

A Warm Respite

Just as a band of snow arrived for the first time in January, the Tuckers set out for a quick escape from the cold for MLK Day weekend. The sun, sand and sea were an amazing respite before returning to reality!

A Texan New Year – Part 2

We packed a lot into a short trip to Houston, including some cultural and culinary exploration, as well as time with friends to ring in the New Year!

A Texan New Year – Part 1

With a few extra days off from work and school, the family headed southwest to the great state of Texas for some culture, science, friends and great food! The warmer weather was a big plus, too.

Third and Final Christmas

After a trip up north and some quality time at home, we celebrated a third and final Christmas with the Tucker side of the family!

Christmas at Home!

For the first time in a very long while, we were at our own home for Christmas, and it was glorious! We had the turkey dinner we missed on Thanksgiving while in Finland, the kids all played nicely, and Santa made it a special day!
