This Is 40

A few weeks before the big 4-0, I got an amazing opportunity to reflect, reset and relax in the Arizona desert. There was a lot of time to exercise, get advice from amazing professionals and reflect on things that often aren’t ever top of mind. While away, the boys enjoyed time with family as the…

Holiday Photos with the Pros

We had a great time in Jamaica, and one of the best parts is all the great memories. Thanks to some professional photographers – who were seemingly everywhere – we caught some extra special moments with a pro touch. Here are a few…

We’re On a Boat and a Hike!

While we enjoyed some resort living in Jamaica, a big highlight was a catamaran cruise outside the hotel with a hike up Dunn’s River Falls. Had we known the 45-minute hike up involved rushing water, slippery rocks and cool temps, we might not have taken Owen, but he ended up being a huge fan! He…

Jamaica by the Sea

We had a great trip to Jamaica, and living it up by the beach was no exception. Whether above water or below, here are some highlights of our time with salt, sand and sea air.

Resort Living in Jamaica

It took six years, but we made it back to Jamaica, this time with Owen, too. We hit up the Eastern side of the island, exploring a bit more of the beautiful country. And while we did venture out of the hotel for a little bit, the boys were all about resort living – taking…

Fun in the FL Sun!

After we took in a little springtime baseball, we settled into our hotel for the weekend, and never left! We enjoyed the pool, the beach, s’mores and a pirate show – with perfect weather to negate our very cold trip in January!

Spring Ball!

Taking full advantage of a school day off, 3/4 of the family went south for some sun and warmth in Florida. Some of us had our second springtime baseball experience, and all of our first at Ed Smith Stadium as the Orioles hosted the Red Sox. It felt great after many, many weeks of cold…

Great Wolf 2019!

For the sixth year in a row, the family ventured to Williamsburg to warm up at Great Wolf Lodge’s 84-degree water park. It was O’s “awakening” year, as he got into everything – from waves to slides to shooting water from all directions. While it was a very fun stay, it was far from sedentary,…

FL Fun – Part 2

We had an action-packed weekend with grandparents during a quick, chilly trip to central Florida. But on our last day, we ventured out on our own to visit new fishy and furry friends at the marine aquarium before heading back home – to single-digit temperatures!
