Star Wars + Baseball!

When a Star Wars night coincides with baseball, this family needs to make a trip of it! It was worth the 45-minute ride to see the Bowie Baysox (an Orioles affiliate) take on the Portland Sea Dogs (a Red Sox affiliate), as right when we walked in, we were overtaken with tons of Star Wars…

Close to the Action

Our first Major League Baseball game of the season was at Nationals Park, where thanks to a game that honored little leaguers around the area, we got to walk around the field before the first pitch. It was a bit sweltering, and the Nats did not end up winning, but it was an amazing experience…

Mother’s Day 2018

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!

Fiesta 5K in 2018

For the 5th year in a row, we’ve had the opportunity to participate in the Fiesta 5K to support the Johns Hopkins Packard Center for ALS research. Colin was in a competitive mood and determined to finish first for Team Big Walt and Mike (he succeeded with a time of 48 minutes and 31 seconds)….

Both on the Hunt

It’s our 600th post! We found a relatively low-key egg hunt to get in the spirit of Easter this year. Colin and Owen took what was rightfully theirs during a beautiful afternoon at Frying Pan Farm Park, and then celebrated hanging out with some animals and a playground!

More Fun at GWL

Taking our adventures out of the water, we enjoyed a little bit of what Williamsburg and Great Wolf Lodge had to offer.

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…

Go Hoyas!

At least once or twice a season, we like to get into the Georgetown spirit with some men’s basketball. Recently we savored a victory against Seton Hall in an exciting game. Colin was among the loudest fans. Hope March looks as good!

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!
