Back in the Woods

We had such an amazing time our first weekend away since the pandemic hit, that we booked another stay at a different cabin a month later. While it was a new locale, Luray, we of course took advantage of the “usuals” – s’mores, hot tub and just getting away from it all!

A Cabin in the Woods

It was the most amazing feeling – a mini-vacation somewhere not in the house! We traveled just under two hours away to what is dubbed the “cabin capital of Virginia” for new scenery and some much-needed change in the midst of this pandemic. While we never left the house and grounds, it was a successful…

Chilly Clearwater

For the second time in several years, we visited Clearwater during a cold front. It still didn’t stop us from having fun, however, with playground fun, a pirate cruise, mini golf and dinner overlooking the ocean!

Sunny Spring Baseball

For the second year in a row, we were lucky to catch some spring training baseball in warm, sunny Florida. The Red Sox, once again, fell to their opponent, but the many treats and 70-degree weather made up for it!

Gal Pal Time in Charleston!

About once a year, the Golin gals gather for a weekend to reconnect and recharge – more than 15 years since sitting in the Quad. While we were unexpectedly down one, we enjoyed the food, spa and weather of Charleston for those who made it!

Lucky 7th at GWL

Some fateful bad weather steered us to Great Wolf Lodge in 2014, and we’ve been back every year since. This year proved just as fun (and exhausting) as ever!

A Warm Respite

Just as a band of snow arrived for the first time in January, the Tuckers set out for a quick escape from the cold for MLK Day weekend. The sun, sand and sea were an amazing respite before returning to reality!

A Texan New Year – Part 2

We packed a lot into a short trip to Houston, including some cultural and culinary exploration, as well as time with friends to ring in the New Year!

A Texan New Year – Part 1

With a few extra days off from work and school, the family headed southwest to the great state of Texas for some culture, science, friends and great food! The warmer weather was a big plus, too.
