Every year we all go down to our family business that just happens to be located right across from race headquarters to watch the fun and hang out with friends and family.

When you go on vacation with no kids you come home with very little photos. My camera just wasn't worth taking with us most of the time so I just stuck to Instagram most of the time. However I did take it out when I visited the piers. We never got a good sunset. They would start and then get swallowed by clouds. I'll still take it though. Marco Island bridge water at Naples … [Read more...]

Between that and a crazy schedule we FINALLY got out on the boat this past weekend. Sawyer thought he was going to get to drive. Here are some fun pictures I took that day!

Last weekend my boys and my Dad headed out to North Hadley to where I go and pick strawberries every year. They are fairly well priced ($2.50 a quart or $20 a box) and if you bring a good army to pick you can get lots in a relatively short time. The field is pretty good sized and while this photo is deceiving there was a pretty good sized crowd there picking with us. Since I had to … [Read more...]

  I love that we live close to the bike trail. They finished it at the end of last summer and this year we are really putting it to good use! I've been learning how to run on it every night and this weekend we dusted off all the bikes and hit our Manhan Bike Trails. Sawyer was not thrilled with his helmet but it's a must. Isn't he the cutest little thing? I love that all the … [Read more...]

I was super bummed out because I had to cancel a trip to NYC for an event over the weekend last minute due to lack of childcare. Being home for the weekend opened up other possibilities for us though. It was the last weekend Six Flags New England was running their season pass specials and I wanted to take full advantage. We haven't been since Johnny was Gavin's age and I wanted to go back but … [Read more...]
