A cousin filled zoo trip!

Our first grader!

Our sixth grader!

Harrison wasn't feeling the weird faces.

Face painting (a crab) at Ren Faire.

The boys finally got their dragons.

Our first trip to Great Wolf Lodge for Tarquin's birthday.

How is he 11?!

Trying not to be amused by his mom.

Practicing his reading stamina with classmates at the park.

August 2017

Going for a short hike to break up the long drive to PET BABY TIGERS!

Turns out Harrison loves baby tigers as much as I do!

He's getting to be more of a fish this year.

Corn isn't a car food...

Petting baby tigers wasn't enough so we made an aquarium stop.

No, we didn't sneak one home with us.

Tarquin had a blast visiting with his Grandma Kelly, Aunt and Cousin.

Exploring Louisville.

He's huge and he's sarcastic.

We had quite a few birthday parties this month.


They hated doing homework, but Mama didn't care.

"Can I fist bump it?"

June & July 2017

Our summer has been pretty bad ass! I'm excited to see what the next few weeks will bring.

I wouldn't take a 3 hour tour with him...

<3 Colleen!

Stoney for Father's Day.

He was pretty excited to find a painted rock at Barnes & Noble.

We spent the Fourth at Greenfield Village.

Detroit Tourist Weekend was a fantastic success and I can't wait to do another one.

This one became obsessed with baguettes (and other weird forms of bread).

Spending some quality time together before he went to visit the other side of his family.

I was impressed by both myself and Tarquin's kayaking!

DCFC is always fun.

I went BLONDE!!!

 My joy over quitting my job was overwhelming.

May 2017

The Costanzicacellis took on the Q-line.

Harrison had me to his classroom for a lovely tea for Mother's Day.

Haven't you ever wanted to ride a panda?

The guy who set up his ice cream truck in front of Motown is a genius.

More from Mother's Day Tea.

Harrison's homework was to take care of me and he did a great job. He even shopped for me!

Took a rainy day trip to the aquarium.

I passed! One more step down.

Gotta celebrate the good parts of menopause.

But he doesn't like hummus...

Child torture technique is successful.

My coworkers are better than yours.
