Beach week!

The beach week finally arrived, and we spent it in a new house (to us). The new location provided an easier walk to the beach and came with the added perks of an elevator, a nice gas stove, and was generally a better kept house. Our week had brilliant weather, and proved relaxing, fun, but too short.


Maisey's 15th!

On a somewhat, too busy of a day, Maisey turned 15! She had class in the beginning of the day, then a mandatory hour and a half evening drivers education class that parents were also required to attend, so not much time for having fun. We managed to enjoy her favorite dinner and sing to her.


4th Celebration!

Celebrating the 4th of July on Cassia, the only way we know how, with good friends and fire.


Visiting Nana & Papa, and Cedar Point

We had a speed run to Sandusky Ohio, to visit Jill and Mark, and get reaquainted with Cedar Point, after a few years off because of the pandemic.


SomeBundy visited DC

Fletcher and Heather visited us from Vermont, and we celebrated Fletcher's birthday.


Herndon Festival

Herndon Festival, or at least the carnival is back!


Marcey's party

it was a little delayed, but we snuck in Marcey's Top Golf birthday party in the same month as her birthday, but only barely.


A big week

A lot happened this weekend. Marcey turned 11! Jeff, Brock, and Jill visited as Jenny finished her final treatment. I coached Maisey's field hockey tournament team, and it was all good, until the prius broke down on the beltway when Jeff and Brock were coming back from Baltimore. -but lets focus on the good ;)


We visited Annie in Richmond

During our spring break, we took some days and went down to Richmond to visit Annie, and tour Richmond.

April 2022

Jeff's new work building

A couple folks from work met at our new building today to get an orientation tour, and have lunch. Nice change of pace to get out and see people. The office was beautiful.

Jan 2022

New York City!

The Carr's and Blythe's went to New York City to see Hamilton and Wicked. We were there for 3 nights and packed in a lot of activities. We only ate meals on the street or via take out/delivery in our hotel room, and spent a lot of time outside, but we had a blast!

Dec 2021

Halloween in Ipswich!

After Micheles wedding, we dropped through Ipswich Massachusets on the way home to spend Halloween with the Bousums. The norEaster had moved through and we had epic weather to play in. Halloween was a blast, and it was great to catch up.

Oct 2021

Lucy got Married!

Michele and Shaun got married in Kittery Main on Oct 30th. All the Carrs went up to partake in the event. It was a beautiful setting. The wedding was fun and memorable. It could not have rained harder during the norEaster that deluged during the wedding reception, but it didn't dampen the spirit. Well, until I got a flat tire, then my spirits were dampened litterally, but until then it was great. Actually the flat ended up being not too big a deal. We just left the stupid thing in a parking lot and went back the next day when it wasn't raining.

Oct 2021

Nanas Birthday

Since Jeff Bundy was in town, Jill and Mark came to visit so we could all get together. Bonus, we got to celebrate Jills birthday too!

Kick off a new year with a different 4 walls

We checked beach house prices, and noticed how cheap the January price was. We also realized the kids had off MLK day and Inauguration day in the same week. And since we can all work remotely, we thought we'd try working at the beach for a change of scenery. We brought Annie, and all our computers, and all our food and had a really nice sunny week at the Beach, in Corrolla. We lucked out with weather that was just barely warm enough to sit on the beach and enjoy it.

The 2020 Bundy - Carr BWI Reunion!

Jenny's brother's family moved from Hawaii, to Germany. On their way to Germany they had a layover at BWI overnight. We were fortunate to have nice enough weather forcast that we figured we could visit in the hotel parking lot. Jill drove down from Ohio, and stayed at the same hotel overnight, and we packed our van with chairs and hung out for a few hours in the sun, in the BWI Hilton parking lot. It was really nice to see everyone, even if breifly.

We ended up with a great night for Halloween! Everyone was safe, with grab-n-go tables at the end of driveways or front walk. Everyone was also more generous than normal years with their candy sizes ;)

Oct 2020

Pumpkin Picking

The pumpkin patches required advanced reservations for a specific half hour time slot this year. You pay for the slot, and they put that money toward your pumpkins. I was worried we'd get stuck in the rain, but we lucked out with the weather.

Marcey had another awsome cinco-de-mayo birthday. The weather cooperated and Marcey's class-mates, friends, and even her teacher surprised her with an hour of drive-by visits. This was the first year of marcey's life that we didn't go to Anita's. We tried to do curbside, but I couldn't get through on the phone lines. We made a huge tray of really good nacho's, so it was all good. Between all the friends who dropped by, the pinata, the cake and all the fun and gifts, she had a great birthday!

April 2020

Fall 2017

I'm trying to catch up with posting pictures, so doing a catch up that covers Sept to November. This covers the girls school pictures, and some pictures from our leave cleanup day, which was a lot of fun out front with the camera.

Aug 2017

We had a 2 week family vacation in Europe. We began in Germany, flying into Frankfurt, and traveling via train to Jeff Bundy's home in Spangdahlem Germany.

Aug 2017

Jeff and Krissy accepted responsibility for the girls for a few days, and allowed Jenny and I to escape for a parent-only side trip to Amsterdam. We drove to Luxembourg, and took trains through Belgium (Brussels) to our Destination of Amsterdam, for a couple nights of fun. We ate and drank as much as we could, taking in the sights, doing the Van Gogh Museum and so on. We walked SO MUCH, but enjoyed Amsterdam probably most of all the places we visited. It helps I appreciate bikes.

Aug 2017

After returning from Amsterdam, we had a little more time at Jeff and Krissy's before both our families shoved off for Paris. We had planned to stay in Paris for our second week, renting a house together that would accomodate the 9 of us, and doing all the things you do in Paris.

Aug 2017

We tackled Disneyland Paris, and had a less than stellar experience. The lines were so bad, we couldn't do anything. We were there 4 hours before getting on our first ride. I had heard that August was bad there, but it's beyond bad. I would say it's not usable and you should avoid ever going there. The 2 rides we did go on, were great. Thunder Mountain and Hyperspace Mountain, were both more significant roller coasters than their Florida counterparts (going upside down) Hyperspace Mountain looks like space mountain, and is in total darkness like the Florida version, but it's star wars themed, and the storm troopers speak french. It was awesome, and I'm glad we used our fast pass on that, but sad we didn't have the ability to experience more at that park. There were no characters around the park or anything to keep mobs occupied. We ended up leaving early, to go back to Paris and have a nice relaxing dinner there.

Aug 2017

our last few days we visited countless cafe's and shopped a little. We visited Jim Morrisons grave, which our rental house was very close to, and we did the Louvre, Notre Dame, and saw the Eiffel Tower at night. I have to say, I don't miss trains now that I'm home. Having your life revolve around trains and hustle of getting kids on and off them (with a stroller) is a little more hectic than vacation should be.

July 22th 2017

Beach week 2017! Weather could have been sunnier, as the first half of the week included a lot of clouds and rain, but we made the most of it and had another year of awesome meals and fun times around the beach and pool.

July 6th 2017

Maisey's 10th Birthday! Manicure party at the nail salon.

July 3rd 2017

Uncle Bob and family came to spend the 4th of july weekend, (and his birthday) with us. We had a bunch of fun in the sun. We saw an Orioles game at Camden Yards, and the Girls were on TV! We only found out, because the lady sitting behind us, told us she saw it on the TV when she was getting stadium food. We went out to dinner at a crab shack, and they were replaying the Game we had just driven from so we got to watch the girls on TV. I took a video at the restaurant, of the TV ;)

The next day, we went to DC and walked the mall monuments, then tackled the Spy Museum. The girls were fairly good, considering it was 2 days of extreme outdoor heat, but I think they'll remember it fondly, as will I. I just wish they lived closer, so we could play euchre more often.

June 25th 2017

Jenny, Maisey & Marcey went to see the Sound of Music on a sunday night at the Kennedy Center, with some other mothers and their kids she know's through work. This was their first theater experience, so they got all dressed up, so I took pictures. Daddy and Jo had a father-daughter night together.

June 23th 2017

Our picture adventure starts at the airport curb, where we were dropped off by our super-awesome neighbors, who drove us in 2 vehicles in order to get us all there without paying for transportation....
