Fall is almost here? Where did summer go?

We had a fantastic summer.  I was so busy with the boys.  Last summer, it was difficult for me, having a new baby and a toddler, but this summer, we made the most of it!


We went on lots of playdates! Nicholas had gymnastics class at Bounce for 10 weeks! Christopher learned to […]

Our trip to Holland (MI, that is!) Annual Tulip Time Festival

Today, we all piled into the van (Nick took the day off) and we went to Holland, MI for the Tulip Time Festival.  Nicholas was EXTREMELY excited as he adores flowers.  He kept talking about “I need to go see the tulips.”  It was very cute, how excited he was!

Anyway, when we first […]

Long over due updates; #1: Our trip to Cincy…

I was putting off blogging about our family trip to Cincinnati (over 4th of July weekend) and here it is, over a month later already…so it seems I have a lot of catching up to do.

As I just mentioned, we decided to go down to Cincinnati to visit my labor buddy, and one […]

We’re back!

We’re home!  We arrived home from Maui yesterday afternoon.  Traffic getting home wasn’t as bad as we thought it would be, thanks to us avoiding I-275N and Pfizer being closed in AA – US-23 will never be the same, now.

We had a wonderful time and Nicholas is such a good little traveler!

When […]

Aloha from Maui!


Maui sure does bring out the best in Nicholas!  We arrived LATE on Nicholas’ first Fourth of July, so we missed seeing the fireworks.  He’ll enjoy them more, next year, right?

I noticed first thing Saturday morning that something was ‘different’ about him, so, I peeked in his mouth and guess what?  He […]

Leaving for Maui…tomorrow!

So, we’re leaving tomorrow morning (well, technically we take off in the PM but…we have to leave our house early) and I can hardly believe the time has come!

I’ve planned, and planned, and planned some more for this trip (as most of you know, I AM a compulsive list-maker).

We’ve tried to be […]

Today was my last day! Spending more time with NBK!

Wow!  I can hardly believe it!  OAI decided that since they found my replacement rather quickly (Dana, whom left in December 2006 to allow me to return to OAI will be replacing me, so we played ‘job switcheroo’), and she already knows the business and would require little to no training, that I could […]

It’s been a long time since I updated!

So many things to talk about!  I guess that’s what happens when you don’t update your blog for 2 weeks!

Nicholas recovered well from his last ‘viral infection’.  Saying it that way makes it sound so much worse than it was – which was likely a bad cold that caused a REALLY high fever […]

Happy Half-Birthday Nicholas!

Nicholas is 6 months old today!  For those that are wondering, that means 26 weeks old!  It’s been a long time since we counted in weeks!

Let’s see…what’s been happening in the last month?  We’ve seen lots of changes in our little Nicholas!  He’s pretty much sleeping through the night, with a huge improvement […]


We’re taking Nicholas to Maui!  July 4-10, 2007!  We can’t wait!
