A Ray of Holiday Sunshine

Back at the start of 2021, we had a dream to spend the end of December in the warm sunshine of the Florida Keys. We went for it, and the dream came true! We escaped the cold, dreary DC for a few days of fun in the sun.

Freedom in Fall

While the cats were away, the little mice played (with Nanie and Pop Pop)! A highlight was Summers Farm in Frederick and time in front of the fire!

A New Fall Destination

For the first time in two years, Megan and Brian got away and enjoyed a fall weekend somewhere new – Bedford, PA. We happened to be in town for the big Fall Foliage Festival, but mainly enjoyed the resort grounds and an afternoon in nearby Cumberland. Nothing like sleeping in and no alarms, the crisp…

Day Out with Thomas

It was our third day out with Thomas, and our first trip with the big Thomas and Friends fan – O! It was our first time meeting Thomas in Strasburg, and the celebration – and the weather – did not disappoint!

No Laboring on Labor Day

We had a great Labor Day Weekend back in the Shenandoah Valley! The Cuddly Cub provided a great home base, and the upgrades to the property (think: kid’s play cabin and paddle boats) made it tough to leave. But, we ventured out on several occasions as we hit perfect weather the whole trip!

A Grenadian Escape

It had been in the works for many years, and officially booked for several, but Megan and lifelong friends finally got an amazing week away on the beautiful island of Grenada. We escaped the resort a few times via a boat, but for the most part, just relaxed on the beach and by the pool…

Anniversary Adventures

We were several years into marriage when we started this blog, but we’ve celebrated a few anniversaries with posts – including our fifth and our tenth. For our 15th, we had to celebrate with the kids in tow, but we made the most of it with a night out in DC followed by a weekend…

Ice Cream Central

With a family of ice cream fanatics, we couldn’t leave Lancaster County without a trip to the Turkey Hill Experience, where we created our own ice cream flavors, packaging and commercials – and then got to taste them in the Taste Lab. It was a sweet wrap up to our weekend! P.S. – This was…
