DC United!

The family was psyched to be part of DC United’s home opener, having had some initial exposure to MLS soccer the summer before. It was a convincing 3-1 win over the New England Revolution and made for a chilly, but great night out!

Last Bit of Holiday Magic

On the last day possible, we soaked up some holiday magic at Meadowlark Winter Walk of Lights. It was a bright spot in one of the dreariest months of the year for sure and a tradition we’ve come to truly enjoy! With warm coats and hot chocolate, we set out to see it all!

High Christmas Tea and More

The holidays give all sorts of excuses for fun traditions, from movies to high tea to cookie decorating – and we managed to do it all…in one day! From NoVA mall to NoVA mall, we indulged in treats for the eyes and the mouth as we went from Wonka to the Ritz holiday tea, followed…

A Kennedy Center Christmas

Thanks to The Washington Chorus, we were treated to Christmas carols old and new during a night out at the Kennedy Center (the boys’ first!). There were sing-alongs, special guests and a nice evening of holiday fun!

Santa, Baby!

We look forward to visiting our favorite big guy, Santa, all year! The boys had a relaxed catch up, filling in on all the latest with school, sports and life at home – plus sharing their wish lists of course!

Eight is Great at Cox Farms

Another fall visit (the 8th to be exact) at Cox Farms under our belt, and it was a beautiful fall day for sure! The sun was shining, the boys were running around, and all was great (until legs were tired of course). Here are some of the highlights!

Go DC United!

A New Great Wolf

After more than a decade, we visited a newly opened Great Wolf with great friends! It was hard to stray from our original favorite, but this one had some plusses for sure – including being a fair bit closer to home and having friends to spend time with!

Running the Bases

Not sure why it took so long, but the boys finally ran the bases at Nationals Park! Fresh off a walk-off win from 5 runs down going into the 9th inning on a hot day, everyone was pumped for more baseball action – and that meant running in the steps of baseball greatness!
