Fall Ball!

In a season first, both boys hit the diamond to play some fall ball. The Orioles and the Cards battled it out for little league glory, with the boys playing many roles on the field.

Enjoying the VA State Fair

It’s been a while, but we hit the Virginia State Fair to take in all the rides and fair foods you can fit into a half day. We came, and we conquered – hitting all the rides, eating a fair share of treats and taking in a beautiful, sunny day!

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!

A Taste of Fall in Summer

We couldn’t quite wait until fall to enjoy one of the season’s best fruit – apples! We had them straight off the tree, infused into doughnuts, as apple cider and even hard cider at Carter Mountain Orchard in Charlottesville.

A rare family trip means investing in photos! While the beach was a little windier than we would have hoped, we captured memories to last a lifetime.

A Summer (Af)fair

OBX On Dry Land

There was so much fun outside the beach and pool in Corolla – and not surprisingly, much of it involved treats! We did hit a new landmark this go around and also just enjoyed some time at the house. Here’s a recap of our OBX time on dry land…
