  We are back in 2013 this week.  This year my husband Joe of Off to Neverland Travel was supposed to run the Walt Disney World Marathon.  Unfortunately he injured his foot and could not participate.

Autumn Fun

2017-10-26T15:29:17-05:00

Living in Houston we don’t get much Fall like weather so when we do we run outdoors.  On this day we headed to Duessen Park on Lake Houston and started out the morning to try our hand at geocaching.  This was our first and last attempt at this. Mr J is just a bit [...]

Fun Smiles

Happy Halloween

2017-10-26T14:38:24-05:00

  The first couple of photos I share are Mr J the budding photographer.  Since I have taken so many photos of him he thought it was only fair to return the favor.  As a present I got him a Fisher Price Kid Tough Digital Camera and he carried it everywhere. Unfortunately that camera [...]

Hanging With Mom

2017-10-26T11:40:39-05:00

First Haircut

2017-10-26T10:21:40-05:00

Children’s Museum

2017-10-26T09:27:30-05:00
