Spring Break Awesomeness

Although we didn’t go into Spring Break this year with too much planned, I’m going to go ahead and say it was one of the best yet. We kicked things off with a little road trip to Kennedy Space Center… The kids enjoyed it more than I thought, and I’ll go ahead and sell Luke out […]

Shame on us… Season’s Greetings & Happy New Year!

I just realized that my last post was in November… No holiday greeting or Happy New Year salutation… How shameful?! Honestly, life is just busy.  But, it doesn’t mean we don’t love our friends and family that check out the site to see what we’re up to.  In fact, it’s true that you make time […]

Season’s Greetings – 2012

As we close out 2012, I’m not going to say it was all rainbows and unicorns or the best year ever.  But, it would be a far stretch to say that it was terrible.  We’re all happy and healthy, no doubt! Our house hit ten years old this year and has already started falling apart. […]
