Friends Ring in End of Summer

A few times a year, we enjoy a fabulous weekend with our Hoya friends. As the kids continue to get bigger, the fun grows! Can’t wait for our next adventure together!

Day of Birthdays!

It has happened a few times already, so we are no strangers to the fun, but another two-party day happened not long ago. As friends turned 4 and 5, C enjoyed a busy day of playing!

A Fun First Fourth

We stayed home for the 4th of July – Owen’s first – and had a great time with friends. It was a little wet and wild, finished off with some fireworks that we could see from just a few blocks away. Happy birthday, USA!

Walkin’ for ALS

Friends in Spring – NJ

We hit the road at the start of spring to visit friends in the great state of New Jersey. We had amazing, lovely hosts, as always! It was filled with new friends (to Owen) and new adventures all together.

A Few Firsts for O

It was a Star Wars Lego-themed extravaganza at Bricks 4 Kidz in DC, filled with lots of Lego playing, pizza and some special ice cream cake. It was more than he and we could have hoped for, and all the friends and family made it…
