Happy Mother’s Day 2018

:: Tags: Dylan, Family, Holiday's, Thoughtful

This year we celebrated Mother’s Day once again at the Cosmos Club in Washington, DC. As in years past, this has become a favorite gathering place for our family to celebrate the mothers in our lives. We are all very happy that we can come together each year in such a wonderful place for such an important holiday. Happy Mother’s Day everyone!

Our Easter Vacation

Taking a selfie with Dylan on a carnival ride @ Harbor Ridge Club – Palm City, FL.

As per normal, we spent our spring Easter vacation down in Palm City, Florida with the grandparents. The private community that my wife’s parents live in always puts on an awesome grandparents weekend for all the visiting families and kids. It starts of with fun kids activities at the club, then an Easter egg hunt on the golf course and finally ends with a huge carnival on the fairway of the first hole. This is a huge event for the entire community and the kids love it. The food is great and the adults can indulge in an adult cocktail while chasing the little ones around between the different rides and booths. My favorite part of the weekend is the Sunday morning brunch at the club. They have a huge all you can eat buffet with everything you could think of and their Bloody Mary’s are to die for!

The Grim Reaper sporting a broken down hearse limo in a neighbors front yard – Arlington, VA.

Here is a mixed collection of photos from some of our Halloween outings and excursions for this year. I think the highlight of this year would have to be the Zombie Paintball Hayride event at Scream Land Farms…. it was not quite what I expected, but it was still a lot of fun! We hope you enjoy the photos.

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!!
