This Is 40

A few weeks before the big 4-0, I got an amazing opportunity to reflect, reset and relax in the Arizona desert. There was a lot of time to exercise, get advice from amazing professionals and reflect on things that often aren’t ever top of mind. While away, the boys enjoyed time with family as the…

Fiesta 5K 2019

Another year, another Fiesta 5K in support of ALS research! Team Big Walt and Mike showed up in full force to remember and honor 3 great men, once again finishing in the top 10 of fundraisers. While the commentary wasn’t as interesting as last year, Colin’s determination was just as strong – and he shaved…

Whirlwind Easter 2019

After an amazing week in Jamaica, and a three-hour delay on the return trip home, we were pretty exhausted come Easter. But that didn’t stop us from some basket hunting, yummy brunching and quality time with family!

Christmas Fun 2018

It was another wonderful, chaotic Christmas filled with a lot of highs and perhaps a few tantrums. There were Lego kits, Matchbox cars, tons of Mickey and lots of surprises from Santa and throughout the day! It went by in a flash!

Christmas Eve 2018!

Another year older and another Christmas Eve in CT! The cousins were full of energy, as were the adults during the gag gifts, so the night flew by!

Pre-Christmas Fun

The weekend before Christmas was quite an adventure with a Hoyas basketball game and the journey north to CT for the holiday festivities. We even got a special visit from Santa before he set off on his big trip around the world to deliver presents!

Our 1st 2018 Christmas – MD!

Christmas came early with a family celebration in Hagerstown! From the snacking upon arrival to the inappropriate game of Cards Against Humanity, it was a weekend to be remembered!

It’s Turkey Day!

It was our second time hosting Thanksgiving, and we seem to be hitting our stride. We were so prepared that our kitchen sink decided to clog Wednesday night just to keep things interesting (it was fixed Friday). Nevertheless, everyone enjoyed some quality time and good food around the table. Until next year! And to kick-off…

Double Party Day!

October is a special month for many reasons, especially with O and C’s birthdays on the calendar. We celebrated with both friends and family to mark the special days! Colin’s Ninja Warrior friend party was a huge hit, while we were spoiled following by having family come to the house to honor both boys.
