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!

Away Around the Corner

While only a few miles away, a quick overnight at National Harbor felt a world away as we rang in the end of summer. Pool, “beach”, treats and more, it was a nice escape just 20 minutes down the road!

Water Boys

While the boys are no stranger to the water – Colin especially – July and August brought some firsts in the pool. It was the first time at the neighborhood pool, and Owen’s first-ever swim lessons! All in all, a great time and warm memories as summer winds down!

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!
