We stopped by our old house and met the current owner who was nice enough to give us a tour of the house and a walk around the property. The peepers were peeping and it was really nice to be away from it all.

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

For Marshall and Nancy's 50th Anniversary THEY took us to Disney for a week. They drove down to our house, and we all boarded the same flight to Orlando. 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....
