Two-Kid Santa Victory

It was a rough visit for some, but both boys got some quality time with Santa at the Pentagon City mall. Colin had his list in photos on the phone, so was all set, but Owen was more worried about getting out of there quick!

Trains and Santa!

For the third year, we enjoyed a breakfast among Santa and the trains at B & O Railroad Museum. This time Owen was a full participant, and Colin showed him all the ropes!

Picking Out a Tree

After a fun few days, it was off to begin the holiday season in full force by picking out a Christmas tree! We headed again to Ticonderoga Farm to enjoy a beautiful morning in the country. And, of course, we came home with a tree! The crew shakes out the tree then packages up for…

Post-Thanksgiving Lights

Another year, another trip to Zoolights! This was Owen’s first trip, taking in the animals, the carousel and the many lights under the stars!

More Fall Festivities!

We needed one last taste of fall before the real cold set in, and we enjoyed it at Corn Maze in the Plains…and with cousins to make it even more special!

Hooray for Fall!

Fall is the best season of the year, but sometimes early fall still feels like summer. Nevertheless, we set out for a pumpkin festival to get in the “fall” mood, as the weather was still pretty warm. And, of course, it was awesome!

VA is for Lovers!

The Tuckers spent a great day at our home state’s fair just north of Richmond. Since Carnival Eats is a favorite at home, we were all excited to try a variety of treats. And, the fair – with all the food, rides and animals – didn’t disappoint!

Away Around the Corner

While only a few miles away, a quick overnight at National Harbor felt a world away as we rang in the end of summer. Pool, “beach”, treats and more, it was a nice escape just 20 minutes down the road!

Great Grad Gathering

Our first nephew graduated high school, and we celebrated big time in the country! I think Colin might have mistaken it for his own party, with all the kids, treats and swimming! P.S. We made it to 550 posts – another reason to celebrate!
