Since I seem to fall behinder and behinder on the website, I have made the
decision to upload the pictures from all of our recent events without the
game/day recaps and picture captions so that you can enjoy them, and I will
continue to work behind the scenes to finish up those parts. This won't help me
get things done any faster, but it will give others the chance to see our family
For this update, I have added four of Drew's varsity hockey games. I have the
captions and recap available for the first game, and the pictures for the other
three on the site. The remaining pictures and recaps will follow - soon, I hope!
I also have pictures from our trip to Walt Disney World for Grandpa Gary &
Grandma Terry's 50th wedding anniversary! Those daily recaps and picture
captions will be following soon.

I am adding the pages for Drew upcoming hockey season(s) to the site today.
His first game has already taken place, but I won't be able to add those
pictures to the site for a couple of days. In the meantime, enjoy!

It has been a slow summer in our household, so there hasn't been much in the
way of updates to the website recently. With that out of the way, school is
underway here in the sunshine state for the youngest two, so that means two new
pages to see. Both Drew and Jayden have First Day of School pages with pictures
Shortly before the start of school, Jayden and I went on a 6+ mile hike at
the nearby Little Manatee River State Park. Although we picked a terribly hot
day to go exploring, we still had a good time. You can find the pictures from
our hike on the Current Events page.
Before we know it sports will be back underway, and I will once again be able
to keep up with the necessary updates to the site... until then!

Just one quick addition to the website today, which is game 10 for Drew and
his Riverview Ice Sharks hockey team. You can now find them by following the
Update! icons next to the links below. Enjoy!

Only two quick additions to the website today, both of them for Drew. Games 8
and 9 have been completed by his Riverview Ice Sharks hockey team, and have now
been added to the website for your review. Please check them out!
Thursday, June 3rd, 2021
I have quite a few updates to add to the site today, and one that I don't
have an update for. First up, the newest additions to the site:
Jayden and her Florida Hawks FC teammates wrapped up their season recently,
and I am finally getting around to adding the pictures and recaps from her final
four games. As you would expect, go to the Current Events page and click on
Jayden, then look for the Florida Hawks FC link to check out all of these new
Drew and his Riverview Ice Sharks teammates have quite a few games to go in
their Spring Season, but they completed three more games since I last updated
the website. Like you would for Jay's games, go to the Current Events page and
click on Drew, then look for the Ice Sharks Hockey link, then the 2021 Spring
Season link to check out these new additions.
There is one addition to the site related to Tara and one that I don't have
an addition for. First up is the addition, which is for our low-key Mothers Day
celebration which can be found on the Current Events page. I don't have any
pictures for Tara's birthday this year, as she opted to wait for her gift as she
is looking to purchase a new set of golf clubs this year.
The final set of additions to the site are for our two visits to Walt Disney
World during the past month. Go to the Current Events page and click on Walt
Disney World to see the pictures from our trip to Animal Kingdom in early May
and to the Magic Kingdom in late May.

game of their spring season this past Friday. You can find the pictures from the
game by clicking on the Ice Sharks Hockey link on Drew's Current Events page.
Next, Jayden and her Florida Hawks FC teammates also played in their fourth game

Thursday, April 29th, 2021
I've added a bunch of new additions to the website this time around (as you'd
expect since it has been seven weeks since my last update).
First things first - we were blessed to have Tyler home for the last couple
weeks of March. Although I don't have a bunch of pictures from his visit, we
certainly enjoyed him being home for bit. His girlfriend Rose was able to fly
down for a bit too, so for a brief moment in time we were all together again,
for the first time in over a year!
On to the updates. Up first, Drew, Jayden, Tara, and I went down to Sarasota
to walk the Celery Fields on March 14th. You can check out the pictures from our
walk on the Current Events page. Up next was our first event with Tyler and
Rose, as we finally got to wrap up 2020's Christmas celebrations when they
opened up their presents at Sun-N-Fun with Grandpa Gary & Grandma Terry. Those
pictures are on the Christmas 2020 page under Current Events. Later that same
evening we headed up to St. Petersburg to take some pictures of the Sunshine
Skyway, which are located on the Current Events page as well.
Prior to Tyler and Rose departing once again we paid a visit to Topgolf in
Tampa. This was the second visit for almost everyone (except for me, who was
stuck working the night that they all went previously). As you'd expect, those
pictures can also be located on the Current Events page. Speaking of Tyler
leaving, Drew and I drove with him to his new base in New Mexico at the
beginning of April. You can find all kinds of details about our "Boy's Trip" by
going to the Current Events page.
Once we returned from our trip, it was time for Drew and Jay to resume
sports. Drew is back on the ice for the 2020-21 Spring Season for the Riverview
Ice Sharks. You can find the schedule and game info and pictures on Drew's Ice
Sharks Hockey page. Jayden is active too, as she kicked off her recreational
soccer season for the Florida Hawks Futbol Club. You can find the schedule and
game info and pictures on Jayden's Current Events page.
Finally, we watched the sunset the past weekend at the Apollo Beach Nature
Preserve. You can find those pictures on the Current Events page as well. That
is it for now!

I'm playing lots of catch up with the updates tonight, as I have fallen way
behind over the past month. With that being said, I'll go straight to the
Over the course of the past month, we made two visits to Walt Disney World -
one to the Magic Kingdom, and the other to Disney Springs and Epcot. You can
find the pictures from those trips by clicking on the Walt Disney World link on
the Current Events page.
Jayden also completed her middle school soccer season, with her team
completing their four games (the fifth scheduled game had to be called off as
the school couldn't field a team this year). You can find the pictures from
those contests by clicking on the Barrington MS Soccer link on Jayden's Current

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2021
We have a few new things to add to the site this time around. Up first, is
the photos from our visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom on Drew's birthday. We
celebrated Drew's birthday the weekend earlier, so we made the last minute
decision to go to the park and enjoy the day.
The next addition to the site is of Drew's three latest
hockey games. The pictures from those games can be found on
Drew's Current Events page. Finally, Jayden has once again made
her middle school soccer team, and the schedule for those games
can be found on her Current Events page.
Thursday, January 14th, 2021
I am finally getting around to add the 2020 Christmas photos
to the site. That pretty much sums up this update, so I will
leave it at that!
