A Sweet Day

After a four-year hiatus, we returned to the land of chocolate – Hershey – for some sweets, rides and other treats. After a nearly 12- hour day, complete with a surprise bonus of family joining in the afternoon, it was a great, albeit exhausting, time.

World Series Fever!

For the first time since 1933, and first in the current franchise’s 15-year history, the Washington Nationals made it to the World Series. To celebrate what is always likely a rare occurrence, half the family watched a chunk of game 1 at Nationals Park while the team was in Houston – where our hometown team…

Start of Fall at Cox Farms

Another fall season, and another great day spent at Cox Farms with cousins! It was sunnier and warmer than last year, but the hayride, apple cider doughnuts and pumpkin picking got us in the mood for the best season of the year!

Time at the County Fair!

Arlington County puts on a good fair, and we enjoyed as much as we could during yet another year! It was a hot one, but it didn’t stop the rides, games and pursuit of as much free junk as possible with the Kohr buddies.

Best of the Rest (of Boston)

We had a great 4th of July weekend in Boston, but spent more of the second half of the trip indoors as the heat truly set in and a rainy evening cooled and wet things down.

Boston Means Food, Fun and Baseball!

We headed north for 4th of July to spend the long weekend eating well, playing a lot and taking in some famous sites. It was hotter than normal, but that didn’t stop an action-packed first part of the weekend – with Faneuil Hall, North End, a city tour and time at Fenway Park!

A Father’s Day on the Field

It turns out we may have spent a Father’s Day or two at Camden Yards. But there were a lot of firsts on this one, with special time on the field before the game. It was a 90-degree sauna of a day, with a game that went into extra innings, but it was unforgettable nonetheless!

A Quick Birthday Trip South

With the long weekend ahead of us, and a special day planned for our lovable birthday boy, we drove south to Richmond for some BBQ, brews and quality time with the boys. It was part victory in that B had “the best BBQ he’s ever had in Virginia” and part not with a constantly cranky…

A Relaxing Mother’s Day

At this stage in the boys’ life, the best part of Mother’s Day is often some much-needed time alone to decompress and breathe. With the boys out at a birthday party for the afternoon, I got this and more…plus some quality time at brunch in a new neighborhood spot.
