Lake Anna Camping

TJ made grilled veggies over the fire....super yummy :)

Leo and TJ chillin'

I don't know if Leo was cold or just wanted to be super close :)

So we decided to go camping at Lake Anna State Park a few weekends ago when the weather was nice. We enjoyed the campground (clean bathrooms and showers) and the park had lots of hikes. Leo especially loved swimming in Lake Anna. I'm not sure how cold it got at night (I'm guessing 40 or so degrees), but I was freezing and Leo spent the night cuddled up between TJ and I. All in all a great weekend trip at a great park :)

Nascar Rookie Rush

Thanks to, TJ, his sister Tracey and I had the opportunity to drive a Nascar car for eight laps at Richmond International Raceway. We took a short 30 minute class and then a test drive around the track in an SUV. I think we were all a little scared because I seriously thought the SUV ride was scary!! All is all it was a blast, except for all the waiting because they did it alphabetically :) As far as speed goes, I think we all agreed that Tracey was the slowest and TJ was the fastest...which left me in the middle. Here are some pictures and videos from the fun :)

Leo's 6th Birthday

I'm trying to get better about posting more often :) Leo turned 6 on September 23, 2010 and we celebrated with a doggy birthday cake, toys and day of swimming at his favorite pet resort. Here are a few pictures of his birthday fun :)

Leo is the golden in the water :)

Leo had two balls in his mouth :)

New England Trip

TJ and I took a trip to New England the third week in July. We traveled from home to New York to Vermont to New Hampshire to Maine to Boston to Connecticut and everywhere in between :) We did lots of camping, hiking, driving, laughing and having fun. Here are some of the highlights :)

July 8, 2010


Just wanted to update everyone on the's still a work in progress! Since we will be leaving on our New England trip on Saturday and since it's been 103 degress this week, the deck will not be finished until after our trip!! Right now our backyard doesn't look pretty, but it will soon!! We will keep you updated on our trip as we go :)

We are getting a Deck (big thanks to Mom and Dad Y)! It is going to be a much longer process than I expected due to the many required inspections along the way! Hopefully it will be done by August so we can have everyone over :)

First step - dig 8 holes...needless to say our soil is like clay and full of rocks so the process took two days! TJ and his dad worked really hard and were very sore! We will keep you updated on the progress!!

Camping Family

We are a camping family :) We enjoy going on weekend camping trips with Leo! Here are a few pictures from some of our camping adventures this year!

Blizzard of 2010

As an assistant principal, I anxiously watch the news and pray for a "Code Red"!! Well I got my wish this year....the students missed almost two weeks of school due to snow...many of the days I didn't/couldn't go in! At one point we had 24 inches of snow on the ground (which fell in about 24 hours). Leo had a blast and while I got a little stir crazy and bored because TJ still had to work, I enjoyed being at home :) Here are just a few pictures from the Blizzard of 2010.


We were very sad to leave :(

We made a wish on a wishing rock !

View of our hotel from the helicopter ride :)

TJ and I traveled to Aruba for our Honeymoon and had a blast! We got very burnt, but enjoyed drinking in the pool, driving around in the jeep, getting dressed up for dinner, taking a helicopter ride, sleeping in and taking naps and just being together!

One of our Favorites......Mr. and Mrs. Yuditsky

We switched it up for our Reception and did a crazy first dance :)
