July 2019

Hey everyone! Just thought I’d take a break from procrastinating buying back-to-school supplies to whip up a quick monthly recap of July. Here’s what we did! (Besides take funny photos with the leaf blower, thanks Joe.) The weekend before the 4th of July we had a great time at my in-laws cabin. Ares found a…

Great Wolf Getaway

Last week we took the kids on a quick four-day getaway to Wisconsin Dells during the girls’ spring break. We stayed at Great Wolf Lodge where we haven’t been before. (And it turned out being really great for the 2-7 age range that we have.) We were pretty much phone-free during all of our water…

2018 in Review

Cheers to the new year! So many good things are upon us, I can feel it! But first, a 2018 recap. The highlights, the good photos, etc. before we are in full 2019 mode! Probably the most significant thing we did last winter was adopt Zuzu. She has been such a weird and wonderful addition…

Road trip to Colorado!

  This August, our family got rather adventurous as we packed up our three kids, stuffed our mini van to the gills, and took a road trip to Colorado! The main reason of the trip was for Joe to run the Spartan Beast there but it was also an excuse to see monuments, landmarks, and…

Just June

We are a third of the way through Summer ’18! (Say it’s not so!) I’m happy to say that we’ve been definitely soaking up the warmth, checking things off our bucket list left and right, and just generally enjoying barefoot life, playgrounds, splashpads, the library, dance classes, extra ice cream, extra sunlight, and all that…

Wisconson Dells (and other life happenings!)

Hi there! It feels good to be inching towards the end of winter and to start breaking out of hibernation. A couple weeks ago, we took an impromptu four-day trip to Wisconsin Dells. My sister even joined us for part of the┬ávacation which made it extra wonderful. She’s also the reason we even have any…

Honeymoon Part II

Hola! Here are some honeymoon photos taken from our trip to Huatulco, Mexico with the real camera! Down by the beach at our hotel. Nothing like a vacation for two to make you seriously consider getting a selfie stick…   I asked Joe to take a photo of me while backlit by the sun so I would look like an…

Honeymoon in Huatulco!

It really happened! After being married for almost five years, we can now cross of “honeymoon” off our to-do list.   Below are a few photos taken with my phone.     We spent all of last week, Saturday through Saturday, in Huatulco Mexico. We stayed at the all-inclusive resort Secrets. As cheesy as it sounds, the resort had extremely nice…

Vacation Video

 Below is a video I made from the photos and videos taken with Robbyn’s phone and my own. I anticipated taking many more pictures and videos, but I had a Rosie who wanted to be held a lot, tiny hands to hang on to, coffee to chug, and family to enjoy. So THANK YOU to my sister for all her help…

Magic Kingdom

  ^^^ Proof that we made it to the Magic Kingdom!^^^  Even though it wasn’t “peak season” it was still a jam-packed park with so much to take in. We mostly toured Fantasyland which is just a small corner of the whole park. (Fortunately, it has a high concentration of magic) For being Disney newbies and having a three-year-old…
