One of our favorite Spring Break traditions has been our yearly trip to Gravelly Point, a big park right next to National Airport. We pack a picnic lunch and lay out the blankets and watch the airplanes fly in or out of the airport. They look like they are close enough to reach up and…

We took an unplanned trip down to the National Zoo on Tuesday with some friends. We had the most beautiful weather, and despite the unbelievable crowds, we had the BEST time! The animals were being very active (at least the ones we made it to). The lions and the tigers were out pacing, the sea…
Happy Easter! We had such a fun weekend!! My sister dropped off my niece, Vanessa, so that she and her hubby could make a quick get-away to Philadelphia. We loved having Nessa around! Andrea and Dan joined us for Easter, too. We had a very EARLY Easter basket and egg hunt. Apple woke up before…

Vanessa wandered in and out of the kitchen wondering what we were up to! The kids had so much fun decorating the Springy sugar cookies. Who am I fooling??…

How do YOU celebrate EASTER?
A conversation I had this weekend with some friends got me thinking about Easter traditions, so I thought I’d share what our family does. First of all, a week or two before Easter, we decorate eggs. I will probably hard boil at least 2 dozen eggs today so that we will have plenty to dye….
Happy St. Patty’s Day!
Are you wearing green? We are!
