Apples galore

The boys were with E on Saturday and part of Sunday, but he didn’t stay for the long weekend, so we had an extra day to go on a little adventure in the hills. It’s definitely hit Fall around here, and the drive up to Delaplane is creeping up to the rolling hills of the […]



Impromptu visit to the splash pad in Georgetown. Oliver loved it for about 10 minutes. Eli wouldn’t have left if we didn’t have to get home for dinner.

Sunshine State

We had an amazing time in Florida over Thanksgiving week and it showed by the amount of photos I took. Literally had to weed through 864 pics to get a small enough group to post. And even then, well, I can’t help myself. Apologies in advance for splitting our trip into multiple posts and batch […]
