Zoo Lights

One of our favorite holiday traditions is Zoo Lights with Kalyn.  It was a beautiful night to tour the zoo, ride the train and carousel, and see the kids' wonder at all the amazing light displays.

Celebrating Finlay

We had our besties over on Finlay's birthday to celebrate the big T-W-O!  The kids were so happy to play together, while we got to enjoy Sean and Erinn's company.  The night was capped off with a train winter wonderland cake and everyone in their Christmas jammies for Polar Express.


Finlay turns 2!!!

We had a train-filled adventurous day for Finlay's 2nd birthday.  We headed to the mountains first thing in the morning to catch the first train of the day on the Georgetown Loop Santa Express.  It was an action packed train ride, complete with a visit from Santa, cookies, caroling and beautiful scenery.

Wild Boy

Finlay is wild and independent...and wildly independent.  He does things and tries things that isla never would have dreamed up.  He can be challenging, but we wouldn't change a thing about him!

Baby, it's cold outside!

We recently had a streak of FREEZING temps!  Our kids are cold weather wimps, so we spent lots of time inside catching up on Christmas movies and snuggling by the fire.  Luckily, it was a short lived cold streak.

Tis the season for holiday jammies

Family Time at Thanksgiving

Giving Thanks

For the 4th year in a row, we hosted Thanksgiving.  It is alwasy so wonderful to have all of our family with us and to stop and look at how grateful we are for all that we have and all the love we're surrounded with. 

Pre-Thanksgiving Fun

Grandma Boody and Papa headed to see us a few days before Thanksgiving, so we took advantage of the nice weather and hit the zoo.  As always, the favorites were the carousel and the train!

Warm day at the Children's Museum

We hit the Children's Museum on a warm fall day with our besties.  The kids loved painting, playing with bubbles and foam paint lesson.  But, the best part was playing at the playground and going for a wild walk.
