Every year, our town puts on a big four day festival complete with carnival rides, a parade, concerts, and fireworks each night. We have always seemed to miss out on this event for one reason or another.  It’s a shame, because I love stuff like this. It feels so magic…

Sprinkled

June 27, 2011 in Summer Activities - 4 Comments

It all started when I let Blake help me water the flowers. It was discovered that a hose with a nozzle makes a great soaking tool. Little did Nash know what his big brother had in store for him the next day. Blake was doing all sorts of scheming. He…

Maiden Voyage

We took the boat out on the maiden voyage of the season, but it was a tad cold. The water was 50 degrees and none of us were crazy enough to dive in and wakeboard. So, we bundled up under blankets instead. Nash had all sorts of fashion faux pas…

All About Dad

Troy came home from work one day last week with an article he saved from the Wall Street Journal. It featured the differences between how mothers and fathers parent and the benefits that result from each parenting style. The article described verbatim how Troy and I each respond to parenting…

Ports

Our first port of call was Grand Cayman.  Now that is some clear water. We all brought our own snorkeling gear, so we did a little shore snorkeling. I feel like pictures can never capture how vibrant all the colors are on the ocean floor. Grand Cayman’s seven mile beach…

Cruising

We decided to kick things up a notch this year to celebrate our anniversary. We went on a Caribbean cruise with our good friends Nathan and Alisa. They got married a few days after us so we all had a reason to celebrate. We have been wanting to take a getaway…

Five years ago today, we embarked on the best journey. It hasn’t been the easiest journey. We certainly have our differences. But those differences make us more compatible and keep our lives interesting. I am so thankful for the journey that led us to where we are today. There are…
