Tad’s Family Backyard Birthday


While we were missing some faces, we did manage to throw Tad a pretty respectable backyard BBQ birthday party this weekend!

The cousins always enjoy getting together and eating their weight in potato chips.  And I bought strawberry lemonade, which made Tad happy. [more]

Anniversary Date Night


We finally got away for a date night (in honor of our anniversary) – and we ATE AT A RESTAURANT.


And yes, I will eat this key lime cheesecake with kiwi and mint garnish, thank you very much.

Too bad the Mariners decided to play a bad game.  We had a perfect view of the TV at the restaurant.

Tad’s Outdoor Movie Party


An outdoor movie night for a birthday party?

In this day and age, Tad was thrilled!

We kept the guest list small – so just Danny, Lane, and George came over – and had pizza in the backyard, while watching “Return of the Jedi” (Tad’s choice) on the big screen.

And we all stayed outside, and distanced, and stuffed our faces with popcorn, root beer floats, and pizza.

The kids were just happy to be together in person.

It was the best birthday party of 2020 – so far!

Twenty Years


We had planned on doing something for our 20th anniversary – it’s a big number, after all!

But once we started thinking seriously about taking a trip, or making plans, COVID took over.

So, we’re going to have to put off the big plans until later, but happy anniversary, Webmaster!

Here’s to many more years of date nights – hopefully out of the backyard, eventually!
