Summer Getaway

Today's the last day of the 7 Day Writing Challenge, and I started this post yesterday but never got it posted, so I'm a big cheater.  Here's what the past few days looked like...

Brunch with The Mother Load on the way down to Maryland:

More Traffic:

Tire Park on Xander's Birthday:

The donuts that "Xander" requested for his birthday breakfast:

Spy glasses from Uncle TJ:

Aunt Erin with my kiddos:


Family Dinner at Red Robin:

Ice Cream for the birthday boy!  He did not understand why all the waitstaff was singing to him:

Presents!  Mickey Mouse and Dora were the favorites, of course.

On Saturday we went to the Baltimore Aquarium:

Eamon lost his other front tooth, so adorable :)

Nana and Gramps!

Waiting for the dolphin show to start:

Fish Faces!!

It's been a fun summer getaway!


  1. Baltimore aquarium is the best!

  2. Soooo much fun, Colleen! Two things... Your sweet baby's face while they were singing to him = adorable! And your flowered shirt = love!

    Glad you all had fun!

  4. Ok, 1) Those donuts look soooo good right now. I just can't quit those...argh 2) Your little guy's face while being sung to was so precious. Happy birthday to him!

    Looks like you had such a fun weekend!

  5. Happy birthday, Xander! Looks like he had a lot of fun, and more importantly, he has a lot of people who love him. :)

  6. I want donuts now! And it looks like you guys had a great trip! I bet the kids LOVED it!

  7. Looks like fun. I wonder if we passed by each other on the highway. We traveled on Friday to D.C./Northern VA area. Glad you had a fun getaway.

  8. Your baby's face when the wait staff was singing to him...priceless. He is simply the most adorable little boy (well, after five other boys I know who used to be that size and that adorable, that is).

    This post is so packed with cute kids and summer fun--you can't help but smile looking through these pictures. :)

  9. Fun times!!! Happy birthday Xander--God bless you sweetie Pie!

  10. What a trip! What fun! And the food...yum! Looks like the perfect birthday Mr Xander.
