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…
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.
Some weekends are more packed than others. With fall in full swing, we were ambitious one weekend to fit in a local fair, a campfire about “bats and blood suckers” and Disney on Ice. Here are the highlights!
On a fateful rainy day, the Pohorylo cousins set out to explore the Udavar-Hazy center to take in all the planes and space vehicles they could handle. It was a big museum, but we managed to hit every corner, including the obligatory gift shop stop on the way out!
We had to welcome the Pohorylos to the DC area in style, and that meant sweating it out in the August heat at Nationals Park. It was multiple hours of fun and chaos, and we wouldn’t have wanted to enjoy it any other way!
It’s so hard to believe, but Colin’s time at daycare is soon coming to an end. What began in Infant Class 2 will end in K-Prep with Ms. Jen, Mr. Rafi and Ms. Leandra in August. But before summer camp began in full swing, we celebrated graduation season with a night honoring the soon-to-be-Kindergartners.
Mother’s Day weekend came and went quickly with an action-packed weekend around town. What began with some tee ball and a trip to Shirlington for lunch, ended with a lovely brunch in DC and dinner by the house. Being spoiled was tough to give up!
For the 5th year in a row, we’ve had the opportunity to participate in the Fiesta 5K to support the Johns Hopkins Packard Center for ALS research. Colin was in a competitive mood and determined to finish first for Team Big Walt and Mike (he succeeded with a time of 48 minutes and 31 seconds)….
Another year and another fabulous Easter! There were a few firsts this year though, as it was the first time the Easter Bunny visited the Tucker residence, and the first family Easter brunch. After the morning together, the afternoon was all about family time with great company, food and time outside hunting eggs!
