This has been a terrific year! We spent time with family, got a new dog, and traveled around the mid-Atlantic region.
Grandkids Are the BEST!
The highlight of 2021 was watching our grandson Jax grow! He was born December 14, 2020 so there were so many milestones this year. I was so fortunate to be able to watch him a few days a week while his parents worked and loved every minute of it. He also spent plenty of time at our house and as you’ll see below camping with us too.
Since I was watching Jax, we didn’t venture far this year. Luckily, our middle son, Justin came out to visit us this summer. He and our youngest son, Donovan will be here for Christmas. It will be the first time we’ve had all our boys together since Richie & Agata got married in 2018.
We did go on several camping trips throughout the year, mainly staying in the mid-Atlantic region. Jax went on his first camping trip with us at 3-months old. Click on the links below to see more photos and details about each trip:

When I wasn’t watching Jax, I spent a lot of time hiking. I joined a women’s hiking club and have hiked 631 miles so far in 2021 (Jan – Nov). Most of it was in Shenandoah National Park. I’ve even completed a few hikes with Jax on my back, but he’s getting a little heavy for me. I’m so thankful to Sean who works to support my hiking habit.
