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!

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

Another year, and another trip to Baltimore to walk in support of ALS research. We had quite a few more family members this year compared with last, and some new friends, too! Team Big Walt & Mike represented with an 8th place finish overall in fundraising, and even had our first top finisher awarded a…
