Summer Wrap-Up

Virginia Trip

School starts a little late this year, so we were able to head to Virginia during the last week of August for a family vacation. We visited Busch Gardens, Jamestown and Colonial Williamsburg.

Behind the Palace

We also played mini golf, shot some hoops and went swimming in the hotel pool. More photos from our Virginia trip are on Flickr.

End of Spring

Spring brings the end of the school year and a lot of scheduled activities. We've attended golf lessons, award ceremonies and chorus & orchestra concerts.

Happy Easter!

Easter was closer to the end of April this year, so we were able to enjoy some warmer weather for the egg hunt. And for our family pictures.

Winter Update

The kids finally had a chance to play outside in the snow this winter (when it actually snowed enough and wasn't dark, raining or -6 degrees). They fit in as much sledding and snowball throwing as possible.


And earlier this month Brandon had a chance to return to the Monster Jam Triple Threat series event for the third time. Does that make it a triple triple threat? Or a nonuple threat?

Near the Trucks

Either way he had a great time. More winter pictures are on Flickr.
