The boys had their last roller hockey game of the season last night.  I am always amazed by how much kids improve during the course of the season.  Ben is skating better and Ethan has decided he loves playing defense and has been making several good plays each game. We brought our digital SLR and [...]

I had a great practice with boys Wednesday night in our front yard, but their game last night was rained out.  That’s the big downside to baseball in NY.  Spring weather is unpredictable and frequently wet.  I was hoping to get some more great photos, but instead I’ll post some video I took their first [...]

The boys had their first baseball game last night.  We got some great pictures and the kids had a lot of fun.  They are really loving baseball this year now that they know so many of the other kids from school and other sports.  What really amazes me is how much these kids improve from [...]

The folks at were kind enough to give me a second 14 day trial after I told them my iMac died right after I started my first trial.  The reason I’m looking at SmugMug is because I want to share some of our video and I’m not happy with Youtube.  SmugMug has a better [...]

I love that we’ve made the switch to stainless bottles for our family! After my recent review of the Earthlust bottles I am excited to have found another great option that I hadn’t heard of before. BILT makes bottles for both adults and kids and they might be just what you’ve been looking for! BILT’s [...]

John has been taking the boys to most of their hockey practices but today we all went and it was great to see! Both of them were so smiley and skated really well. It was a fun morning. Just wish I was a better photographer to capture it!

We aren’t a family of morning people, mainly because staying up late is fun. This summer we’d usually let the boys stay up until 9:30 or 10pm (okay sometimes even later) with John and I staying up until midnight. Things needed to change with the start of school so I was happy to review some [...]

Ethan and Ben both had their last YMCA soccer yesterday. It was hot out but somehow it was one of their best days at soccer. Next summer Jamie can play and we’ll have one kid in each age group (fortunately they all meet at the same time and place). I lucked out and got quite [...]

I have had too much good stuff to post about to keep up lately! I never wrote about the great weekend we had and its already Wednesday! Saturday was the boys’ last t-ball of the season and it was a gorgeous day. I love that they are close enough in age that some years they [...]

YOU CAN ENTER HERE TO WIN A BOX OF FRUIT ROLL-UPS THAT YOU DESIGN! Fruit Roll-Ups are definitely one of those lunch bag snacks I loved as a kid and now our boys love them too. When I told Ethan he could eat whatever he wanted at his hockey team’s end of season party he [...]
