July 31, 2014 in Revamping Our House - 1 Comment

I hosted book club at the end of May and it became my deadline for some home improvement projects. My friends had of course seen our house in its pre-makeover state, but having a deadline gave me the drive to finish three huge projects by the end of the school…

Water Canyons

We made our annual trip to the water canyons downtown. We’ve gone to the same park with the same friends for four summers straight. We made sure to put it on the calendar weeks in advance to ensure that the summer didn’t pass us by without our annual tradition. In…

Just Add It to the List

July 29, 2014 in Home Repairs, Trials - No Comments

A couple of months ago, right after Troy was finally able to walk again and the worst months of pregnancy were behind me, we woke up to no power one morning. Troy had to get to work but was unable to open the garage door with the power outage. His parents…

Crew | Fifteen Months

July 28, 2014 in Crew - No Comments

I usually stop writing monthly baby posts once our little ones turn one. But Crew has changed so much in the last three months that I thought I better post an update, especially before he is dethroned and we have another baby to post about. It seems like Crew went…

On the Lake

Our summer filled up so fast that somehow we didn’t make it out on the boat until mid-July. When I announced our plans the morning of the outing, the boys may have been more excited than they were for Christmas. After a battery-charging delay (it’s always something), we ventured onto…

So Many Tanners

On day two of the family reunion, everyone in attendance gathered in one place at one time, which was no easy task. The immediate members of the Tanner family are spread all over the world, so the amount of relatives gathered at these biennial reunions is typically about half of…

NYC Homecoming

July 12, 2014 in NYC, Vacations - 1 Comment

If it weren’t for these three boys that we missed like crazy (and our sore walking feet), I don’t think we would have ever wanted to leave New York. It was such a refreshing, liberating, exhausting trip.  But we were so happy to see these faces again.  We’re so thankful…

NYC Part Five – The Wedding

July 11, 2014 in Friends, NYC, Vacations, Weddings - 1 Comment

The finale to our New York adventures is the main reason we traveled all that way; Troy’s lifelong friend’s wedding. Troy and Greg met in Kindergarten and have stayed friends ever since, which is pretty remarkable. Troy has a lot of intelligent friends, but Greg in particular was always grade…

NYC Part Four – The Food

July 10, 2014 in NYC, Vacations - 2 Comments

You can’t go to New York without eaaaaaating delicious food. Troy and I have collected some favorite places to dine over the years and it seems like we are always sending out Troy’s master spreadsheet to friends and family that are planning a visit to the city. We hit most…
