Apples, Apples and More Apples

Not since Colin was in utero had we been to Hartland Orchard, but the visit was worth the wait! We had our pick of apples, some cider doughnuts, a tractor ride and lots of treats to make afterwards!

An Unforgettable First Concert

Colin had a true rite of passage – his first “real” concert. It was a wet, warm night at Jiffy Lube Live, but the rain didn’t damper an unforgettable experience.

A Different May 5K

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.

An Enchanted Evening

It had been a few months since we visited Nationals Park and boy did it look different! Nats Park was nearly unrecognizable as it transformed for Enchant, a holiday-themed evening festival with lights, ice skating and – of course – plenty of opportunities to spend money!
