Our Modern Family



Thanksgiving Road Trip

2015-11-23 09.34.49 1This year we changed it up a bit, we drove to Virginia for Thanksgiving and will spend Christmas at home. It is always difficult to mentally prepare yourself for a 28 hour (round trip) road trip with two kids.

So I chose the logical solution to get ready…remodel the house the weekend before you leave. Seems like a good solution right?! Continue reading “Thanksgiving Road Trip”

Salt Life

2015-09-21_01-33-25Although we live in Florida, we probably don’t go to the beach as much as we should…especially since our kids love it. But over the past few weeks, we had two great beach weekends.

Two Week Notice (pt.2)

2015-08-13 09.35.08 1It was on to the second leg of our Summer Vacation tour as we packed up the car and kids and started the 9 hour drive to Ba & Pop’s house. It’s funny, I never thought there would be a time where a 9 hour car ride seemed like a short trip…especially with 2 kids.

This was the portion of the trip that had been making me fairly nervous for several months. While we were in town I would be attending my 20th High School Reunion (not sure there is any way around it…I am officially old) and a three-hour reunion show with my college band. All while trying to balance spending as much time with my family before we would be separated for three weeks. Continue reading “Two Week Notice (pt.2)”

Happy Mother’s Day

First came love, then came marriage…and then all hell broke loose.

That was the Mother’s Day card I got Jenn and one that seemed very fitting. Our lives are drastically different today then they were five years ago as this entire journey was getting ready to begin. Continue reading “Happy Mother’s Day”

The Most Magical Place on Earth

2015-01-26 11.53.18 2 For Christmas, my parents gave us four-day passes to Disney, the most magical place on earth…or every parent’s worst nightmare.

When Jenn and I first moved down here, we bought season passes and would go often for a few hours. We always laughed at parents pulling their kids around the park trying their best to keep it together while making magical memories with their kids who were either sleeping, crying or screaming.
