Jenny’s visit (pt. 3)

Jenny attended a NICU conference from Monday until Wednesday noon, so we were able to spend the evenings together.  Monday evening I met Luke, Jenny and Jenny’s co-worker at Tony’s Pizza Napoletana (check out the Yelp reviews here).  We ordered two pizzas which was enough for 4 adults and 2 kiddos.  Delicious!  Jenny and her co-worker rode around town in… Read more →


Jenny’s visit (pt. 2)

The last 3 weeks

Oh  Friends and family.  I’m sure you have given up on me posting here consistently by now!  We’re still here and alive and well.  Things are FINALLY starting to slow down and we are developing a routine of sorts these days.  The last 3 weeks have in no way been boring or slow, but regular blog posting has just not… Read more →
