Mother’s Day at The Cosmos Club

“A family photo on Mother’s Day 2016” – The Cosmos Club, Washington, DC.

This year for Mother’s Day, Julies father Bruce, came up with the fantastic idea to take everyone to brunch downtown at the very exclusive Cosmos Club. Bruce, being a member of the Yale Club, gets special VIP privileges at two dozen or so other exclusive private clubs around the world. So, with both sets of grandparents in town for Mother’s Day we decided to dress up and go enjoy a top notch meal in a fabulous venue with three wonderful mothers!! “The Cosmos Club, located in Washington, D.C., was founded by John Wesley Powell in 1878. It is a private social club for men and women distinguished in science, literature and the arts or public service. Members come from virtually every profession that has anything to do with scholarship, creative genius or intellectual distinction.”

“Dylan spending way too much time in grandpa’s swimming pool” – West Palm, FL.

Here are some photos from our 2015 trip to West Palm, Florida for our long Easter Holiday weekend. This year, as we do every year, we spent a nice restful long weekend with Julies parents at Harbor Ridge Country Club for their annual grand parents & grand kids weekend gala. This year Dylan was old enough to ride on some of the more advanced rides and even went on a long zip line with me! I have a video of that I will post later. The food and the fireworks show where the highlights for me, but I think grandpa’s swimming pool was the highlight for Dylan.

“Dylan and Frosty The Snowman @ ICE” – The Gaylord Hotel – National Harbor, MD.

We took Dylan to an event at The Gaylord Hotel at National Harbor this weekend called ‘ICE’. They put this ice sculpting event on every year at this time and this years theme was “Frosty The Snowman”. You can only imagine how excited Dylan was when he heard that ‘Frosty’ was going to be there this year. The ice sculptures were fantastic and I couldn’t believe how many of them there where, but one thing was for sure… is it was freakin’ cold!

This is my last post for 2104… I hope you enjoy the photos!!

Captiva Florida Videos

11/30/2014 – “The South Seas Island Resort” – Captiva Island, Florida

Here is a video from our Thanksgiving holiday trip to South Seas Island Resort in Captiva, Florida. This is a semi annual trip for the family and it’s always a lot of fun to catch up with everyone in the warmth of South Florida. Dylan was a little disappointed this year as the water temps where a little on the cool side! But he did brave the big community swimming pools despite the cooler than normal temperatures.

“One of the main swimming pools” – South Seas Island Resort – Captiva Island, Florida.

This year we expected to spend Thanksgiving in Chicago for a wedding, but it didn’t pan out. So instead we all decided to spend Thanksgiving on Captiva Island with Julie’s family as we have done many times in the past. It was nice getting together with the family and celebrating the holiday in a nice warm place even if the water was a little on the cold side. Here are a couple of photos from the trip… enjoy!
