Maintaining strict quarantining and social distancing can be hard work, but it can reap some rewards. In our case, we’ve been able to “double the bubble” and hang out with friends on occasion who are as fiercely dedicated as well. We enjoyed a fun 4th outside, complete with fireworks!
It was another day of celebration during the COVID-19 pandemic, which meant lots of treats at home. One child was more participatory in the fun than the other, but both showed their love for dad throughout the day!
In a matter of two weeks, the Tucker household celebrated two birthdays still in quarantine due to coronavirus. The second one had a similar outcome – good food and sweets galore! All in all, the kids made out like bandits with all the treats in the house, making one wonder whose birthday it exactly was.
When you’re still stuck at home with a stay at home order, but there’s a birthday to celebrate, what do you do?! Go all in on treats, of course. Here’s some highlights from Brian’s birthday weekend…which happened to be Memorial Day weekend so three days of fun.
We hit another holiday during the era of social distancing – Mother’s Day! It was as perfect as could be with plenty of alone time, well-behaved children, good food, mom FaceTime and a little chilling on the couch as a family to end the evening.
At this stage in the boys’ life, the best part of Mother’s Day is often some much-needed time alone to decompress and breathe. With the boys out at a birthday party for the afternoon, I got this and more…plus some quality time at brunch in a new neighborhood spot.
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!
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!
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!
