Now that Summer is officially upon us I’m sitting here wondering when it will actually arrive and stay for a while.  We’ve had several short tastes of weather at or above 65 F, but it only lasts for one, or maybe two consecutive days and then returns the cold, rainy, dreariness that has been most...

Holy Shit…It’s 2014 We’ve totally been neglecting this blog, BIG TIME.  I don’t blame you if you wrote us off, but we’re still here.  A lot has happened/changed since our last post.  James is 4 (WHAT?!?!?!?)  and Connor is damn near 1.  James has figured out how to ride a bike (we totally skipped training...
