Family and Friends

Surfing Sunday 07.21

We just returned from a relaxing week away with my parents, cousin, and her family. We rented a lovely house in Scottsdale, AZ, and spent the week swimming, eating, and doing as little as possible. The kids had a BLAST. James and Liam were inseparable, and Annie was in heaven having 24-hour access to baby…

Paul, Ringo, Annie, & James

When Paul McCartney announced his tour late last year, Mike decided this was going to be the year we brought Annie and James. Sir Paul is getting up there in years (he just turned 77), and even though he always ends every concert with “see you next time,” you never know when he might decide…

The All-Star softball season officially came to an end for Annie’s team yesterday. They made it to the State tournament, which was a huge accomplishment. Their two losses were to teams that qualified for the regional tournament and they were both close games. If you have to lose, you want it to be to teams…

This Is Spohrty

Hey so, I turned 40 on Thursday. The big four-oh. I’ve been treated to an AMAZING birthday week by my family and friends, and it’s made me feel so special. On Monday, my oldest friend, Tara, threw me a surprise party at her house. I was actually surprised, too!!! I had a great time celebrating…

But even though it’s the summer of softball, we haven’t forgotten that today is Father’s Day (okay,…

You guys. James turned SIX on Thursday. SIX! I wish everyone could spend time with James. He’s never met a stranger (which is a little terrifying as his parent), and loves to make people happy. He’s a wonderful little weirdo who dreams of being an American Ninja Warrior, is obsessed with The Avengers, and still…

Happy Memorial Weekend! The softball league that Annie plays for hosts a large tournament every year, so I’ve been living at the softball fields since Friday – in fact, I’m writing this AT the fields (yay for hotspots). It’s fun to help put on a tournament that hosts over 80 teams, but it’s (unsurprisingly) a…

Surfing Sunday 05.19

I hope you all had a lovely Mother’s Day. Mike and the kids woke me up with lovely gifts, treated me to a delicious brunch, and LET ME TAKE A NAP. It was everything I hoped it would be. This weekend was supposed to be filled with softball (and yesterday was), but today’s games were…
