Paris for Easter….

Well, I’ve managed to neglect this blog for months…like about seven of them.  There was so much I wanted to share from summer.  But, I couldn’t get my tush in gear to make it happen.  And now here we are about 6 weeks away from welcoming a new baby and life certainly isn’t slowing down. […]

Catch up…

Awe man.  I hate playing catch up.  But here I am, months behind on this blog.  To be fair, it’s been a cah-razy summer.  An awesome, crazy, whirlwind of a summer, with visits from a good friend of Joe’s, my parents, a good friend of mine, and my brother.  And trips to : Munich, Strasbourg, Amsterdam, and various nearby […]

Fatigue…

Can strike anywhere.  You never know when/where you will fall victim…

Easter and such…

This year we had a great Easter.  Quinn actually grasped the concept of the Easter Bunny and for a week or two leading up to the holiday we had a bit of leverage using the old “The Easter Bunny is listening/watching”.  Brilliant.  Amazingly, this persuaded her in several instances to listen better to Mommy and […]

Days go by….

One right after the other.  Geez, sorry for the long absence.  I can’t believe it’s been so long since my last post!  Wow, where do I even begin?!  So to (hopefully) avoid boring you all to tears, let’s just do the “in a nutshell” rundown of what’s happened the last couple months. March was a […]

Weekend adventure

Making it to Gummersbach, Germany has been on our ‘to do’ list since moving here.  Seeing the town from where your last name originates is a must do.  Never mind that our American way of saying the name is barely understood here.  Or that Quinn thinks our last name is just Bach.  Yes, better to […]

Birthday/ Halloween recap; in other words….October

You guys know me by now.  Always a day late and a dollar short.  Or months behind on blog updates.  Yup- it’s who I am, I own it.  Anyway, I wanted to just quickly post a few pics of Quinn’s birthday party and Halloween costume. On Quinn’s official birthday we opened presents in the morning. […]

Okay seriously…this is getting old

I’m still stewing about losing the majority of my last post I was working on.  Super annoying.  I really want to finish sharing about our adventures this *cough* summer.  Seriously, day light savings time has ended…we need to move on.  So, this time it’s for real people.  I’m wrapping up this ongoing, ever-living, just.won’t.die post […]

London…it’s a wrap.

Okay, so let’s see….hmmm, we were in London in July?  Yes, that’s right.  And it’s October and I’m still blogging about it?  Also, correct.  Good.  Moving on, let’s wrap it up now. Our third day in London was probably our favorite.  Right Katie?  I think probably this had to do with the fact that we […]

She is two.

I’m breaking with the London/summer recap “series” to celebrate Quinn.  Today she turned two.  At 6:19 this morning technically, which it occurred to me is about her average wake-up time every day.  I love re-living that day.  Thinking about the indescribable excitement as we drove to the hospital, the immeasurable joy in seeing her for […]
