Team Picture

The close of a great (and undefeated) season.  Those Kentucky Wildcats got nothing on these kids...

Downtown Grub

Nothing better than finding a new local restaurant that is kid friendly, beer on draft, burgers that are good, and that has great people watching.

Rex's Downtown Grill in downtown Frederick has all those; and is now one of my local favs.

Fireside Chat

At one of local favorites, Beans In The Belfry, the little lady decided to read a story to the resident dog.  He may have been fake, but in her eyes he was real as could be.

Fake fire, fake dog, but a real sweetheart.

A Championship Season

Too bad they don't reward a first place team in Jaxson's age bracket for basketball, because they went undefeated this season.  Great coach, great kids, and a great organization all around.  Upward was a great league for Jax this year; we definitely feel as though he made some progress in both his basketball skills, but also in his competitive juices.

He tends to be very passive; however, there were some moments of competitiveness that showed up...on to golf season!

Instead of trophies, all the kids got basketballs - which I love; it's something they will actually use.

Shared Special Day

They have a special bond.  They share their birthday, and have had the privilege of sharing special cake/desert each year so far.

A special day for both.

A Frozen Sixer

Miss Belle will officially turn six on Wednesday of this week, but we celebrated a few days early with all the family in town.  

No better time and place to have a Frozen party than with snow still on the ground and at a local dairy farm/creamery.

Night Sledders

One last sledding trip, first one at night, of the season.  Honestly, not sad to see winter go.

AB is sad, but not because winter is leaving...sometimes you have to yell at your kids to get them in the pictures, smile or no smiles.


Finally AB has taken to an activity...she's all about some gymnastics lately.

The gym opened up over the weekend to kids and let them have a "free-play."

Snow Chairs


Light As Air

Who needs a partner when you have a balloon, half filled with helium...

Night Of Dancing

Took my little lady out for a Daddy & Daughter dance in Harper's Ferry, WV over the weekend.  A few awkward moments (middle aged white men trying to dance, an overly "risque" girl and her dance moves, etc...), but all-in-all it was a great night with AB.

She had a blast, and at the end of the day, that's all that matters.

Snow Tracks.


Headed Home

The walk home can be the toughest part of a day of sledding.
