Neighborhood Car Jumps Neighborhood Humans

Date September 26, 2009

Last night wound up as another “fire in the Wilsons’ driveway” evening (followed by night golf at Smuirfield, which was followed by a little Texas Hold ‘Em — just another night in central Ohio suburbia). Julie, Carson, and Alana were en route to Virginia to return her mom to her home and to attend Julie’s [...]

Mike and Matt’s Wedding

Date September 21, 2009

Julie and I just got back from a Boston vacation planned around the Salem wedding of Mike Dumbroski and Matt Woodward. We had a ball, and Marilyn survived watching all three kids for five days!

Day 1 with a New Camera

Date September 8, 2009

Date September 7, 2009

Alana got a chance to make and can (jar) some pickles with Grandma during her stay with us: All three kids are intrigued by the process.

Getting Back on Track with the Blog

Date September 1, 2009

I’m not saying I’m actually back on track with the blog, but I’m hoping to get there soon. August was a little crazy in the Wilson Household. By the numbers: 2 – number of visits by my parents 2 – number of visits by friends from Austin 1 – number of visits by Julie’s brother [...]
