Another 4th with Friends

Like last year, we enjoyed a fun 4th at home with friends! We had the extra fun of sparklers and a few fireworks that were a huge hit!

Cool with Friends

The heat of summer still seems to come as a shock, even with a few years in the Middle East under our belts. Luckily, we have friends with a pool membership to have fun and cool off!

A Wild Party

We were one with the animals for a birthday party at Roer’s Zoofari. We explored via bus and on foot and got to feed animals big and small. Here are some of the highlights!

Star Wars + Baseball!

When a Star Wars night coincides with baseball, this family needs to make a trip of it! It was worth the 45-minute ride to see the Bowie Baysox (an Orioles affiliate) take on the Portland Sea Dogs (a Red Sox affiliate), as right when we walked in, we were overtaken with tons of Star Wars…

The Graduate

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.

Fiesta 5K in 2018

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)….

Prepping for Easter

The time was upon us to – yet again – color Easter eggs with some great buddies! Everyone did really well this year, with only one cup spilling (a record since we’ve been doing this) and a bunch of brightly colored, sticker-filled eggs to enjoy!

“Phun” in the Philly Area

Every once in a while, we get to make the trip up to the greater Philly area to catch up with some of our favorite people. While it was a bit too rainy for our tastes, it was overall a great opportunity to spend time with good friends!

Two Very Different Weekends

Nearly once a year, four colleagues-turned-friends have the chance to reconnect and enjoy a weekend away. This year was another amazing few days, and a new location – Boulder, Colorado. Can’t wait until next time, though it was perhaps a long weekend “alone” for the boys at home!
