Family Photos – 2017

A few weeks ago we took on the challenge of family photos for the first time as a family of four. I don’t think we achieved a single photo where we were all smiling, but I know I’ll look back on these images with fond memories of sweet baby innocence when the boys are teenagers and still refusing to smile!

Thank goodness our photographer is patient and works so well with kids. (If you’re in Naples and looking for a photographer, I highly recommend Rochelle Shucart – She is the best!) I am also thankful for the stunning beaches of Naples, Florida… it is hard to take a bad photo when you have a gorgeous sunset over the Gulf in the background.

All I can say is that attempting photos with a toddler and a baby called for a BIG glass of wine after the session ;-)

Here are the final images from this year’s family photos. Fingers crossed the boys (as well as Kyle and I, ha!) are a bit more photogenic next fall.


Well here we are, Sunday evening! This weekend flew by – In a good way. We had a lot of fun, a little relaxation, completed a couple of home projects, fit in some sweat sessions, and enjoyed some good eats.

How about a mostly photo recap?

Introducing Dean to the Christmas tree (and presents) on Friday afternoon.


Wine. Lots of wine as I agreed to run a 5k followed by teaching BODYPUMP 16 hours before race time…


Wine + a dinner of shrimp stir fry over quinoa must have done the trick… PR BABY!! 23:04 (non-chip race). WOOHOO!! (More detailed post to come.)


Killer BODYPUMP class post-race… I made it to the room just in time!


Cheering on the Gators with some Florida friends. Dean wanted in on the fun ;)


Sunday morning walk with Christmas Baby Legs.


Sunday BODYPUMP (hurt so good!) and a little flex triceps/bicep progress.


Trying out a new-to-us brand of diapers – I’ve heard mixed reviews. Thoughts?


Dean’s first Hanukkah! (Please ignore the extremely messy kitchen – That’s what I get for leaving the boys home alone for 3 hours ;) )


Finally decided on Dean’s 6-month canvas order… We are getting the following images in 16×20 canvas prints. #mylittlemonkey

How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?
