Slammin’ Start to Summer

The first weekend of summer was action-packed with the end of Super Slam Ball, a trip to the pool, Jedi Academy and other fun. Can’t wait for more adventures!

Anniversary Dinner All Out

When you hit 11 years, and two kids, in a marriage, it’s worth a celebration! We hit up arguably the best restaurant in DC, Pineapple and Pearls, for a multi-course extravaganza and drink pairing. It was totally worth the five pounds gained from it!

A Bliss-Filled Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day was a delightful occasion, with a half-day at the spa and some quality time with the boys. While we were in the throes of moving, it was great to take time to relax and reflect on the biggest job in the world!

Crazy hair no more!

We waited six months, but the crazy hair that had accumulated on Owen’s head had to finally be tamed. He was the perfect customer, so we hope our good luck continues! Oddly, Colin was the one rewarded for the occasion, with a Happy Meal for lunch followed by donuts!

Rockin in the Free World

In a moment for a lifetime, the adults headed to Brooklyn to see Pearl Jam and several other amazing performers get inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It was a whirlwind 24 hours in New York, but quite the show – even if it did keep us up well past bedtime!

A Sweet Love Affair

Taking after his father, Colin has an intense sweet tooth. His life would revolve around treats – especially of the chocolate kind – if we let him. We try to keep things in check, but C knows how to live the good life with sweets!

Enjoying Fine Foods

After years of lapsed fine dining due to the arrival of a certain little dude (cough cough Colin cough), we were determined to make up for lost time by sampling the top three Michelin-rated restaurants in the D.C. area. It took six months, but mission accomplished – and it was quite delicious! Inn at Little…

Santa Breakfast – Take Two!

Happy 2017! We’ll still be recounting all the holiday fun as winter gets into full swing. After a great first experience, the Tuckers headed to Baltimore early for breakfast and a train ride with Santa and Mrs. Claus! Three of the four of us chowed down on all the breakfast favorites, but we all enjoyed…

A Perfect Santa Visit

The Santa gods aligned this year, as we had two happy, awake boys to take a photo with Santa…and a relatively low-key experience overall as we all headed to the mall. Happy holidays to all!
