Overnight Roadtrip

loaded up
 This road-trip we wanted the kids to experience a little of our childhood memories. Remember those Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager days? 


 We put the back seats flat, covered them with sleeping bags and then stopped at parking lots for a few hours rest (or until the car got too cold) in between driving.

While it may not have been our best night of sleep, the kids said it was the "most fun ever!" 

One of the advantages of driving is getting to bring the Albert along. He didn't sleep a wink.


After 12 hours of driving we made it to Wilmington, NC for lunch


 and to drop of DaddyO's motorcycle for repairs.

a couple months and it should be a new ride
Another six hours of driving and we made it to family and a good night sleep.


This makes all the hours driving worth it!

February Rain


The kids don't mind taking Albert for walks in the rain when the temperature hovers around 70 in the winter.

Wild Azalea Masterpiece


We found an art teacher from the neighborhood. She brought some wild azaleas from her yard when she came to meet the kids for the first time. The arrangement inspired EJ to paint and so she made this mini masterpiece for her teacher.


Looks like the beginning of a creative relationship.

Egg on Rice


A go to meal when on the go. So simple yet fills the kids up with the carbs and protein they need before a sports practice.

Just make some steaming hot rice and add a fresh egg on top.


Sprinkle with some Japanese furikake (seasoning.)


The rice is so hot that it cooks the egg into a creamy mixture.

The Architecture of American Houses

I ❤️ our neighborhood’s wonderful collection of houses. This helps me classify the variety of architectural styles while walking around North Hill.
Ours is Victorian - Queen Anne - Hipped Roof:.

Pensacola Double Bridge Run


Over 6,000 runners participated in the 2020 Double Bridge Run and DaddyO was one of them!


He was out at the starting line by 7 a.m. Thankfully it was just a couple blocks south of our house so EJ and I were on the corner to cheer him on as he started the race.


The course starts in downtown Pensacola and takes the runners over two bridges to Pensacola Beach.


It was a Saturday full of swimming and soccer so we received updates from DaddyO as he progressed along the route.


He finished in 1:32:47 and received a medal to remember the accomplishment. Now he has his eye on a half marathon...
