Carousel Ride

Calvin and I went down to the VA Air & Space Museum to take advantage of our membership that expired today :)  While we were down there, we rode on the carousel.

Spoiled Rotten

We’re back from our Alaska adventure, safe and sound in Virginia.  Unfortunately, Steph’s parents broke our child.  We had to take him to the doctor today to see if he could be fixed.

Yorktown Beach

Calvin & I met Jessie & James over at the Yorktown Beach to take advantage of these temperatures in the 70s.

He loved rolling around in the sand…needlesstosay we had a lot of brushing off before getting in the car :)  And check out his “Beach Bums” shirt from Grandma, totally appropriate for today’s activity!

This is what you get when you have to take a picture of 2 adults and 2 babies in strollers yourself..

We got to see some cool boats there too.

And this is what you get when you had 2 hours of fun in the sun (and sand!)…

Yorktown Beach - 12

We didn’t even get in the water b/c it was freezing, but we had fun playing in the (and eating….Calvin, not me) sand!

Nacho Man

Anyone who knows me even remotely well knows that my favorite snack by far is chips and salsa.

Well, as the cliché goes, like father, like son. I’d been snacking a little bit while working today and left my desk for just a minute, only to come back to find this.

Calvin Salsa

Not only is he grabbing the chips, but he’s dipping them in salsa that I made extra spicy with some of that gallon of Habanero Tabasco Sauce that I recently bought.

I’ll definitely miss stuff like this when I stop working from home…

5 Years!

To celebrate our 5th anniversary, we took a little trip down to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.


This area is probably most famous for being the site where Orville and Wilbur first flew.  In this spirt, we started the weekend off with a bit of kite flying:

The kite festival was also going on as you can see:

We also paid our respects to the Wright Brothers by visiting the Wright Brothers National Memorial.

5th Anniversary 03

Little known fact: I share a birthday with Orville Wright (as well as Bill Clinton and Gene Rodenberry).

With aviation all around us, we decided to take to the skies ourselves.  For $99, you can strap yourself into a wing and run off the side of sand dune as well.

We documented our flights a little better than those brothers.  All they can up with was one grainy black & white photograph:


And so, for your viewing pleasure, here are the first 5 unpowered flights of our family: (I accidentally deleted Stephers’ 4th)

Memorial Day

We went to TX to house hunt last week and spent Memorial Day at my parent’s community pool in the Hallows.  It was a nice day of swimming and eventual hotdog eating…they only had one grill working
