Our Times, Travels and Truimphs

Hanging with the Cousins at the Prescott Cabin

In July of 2014, I packed up the car with one suitcase for Mama and me and filled up the rest of the trunk space with everything needed for a small 21 pound human being (which is a lot!). By the grace of the gods, Alessio rocked the 8ish hour journey and was all smiles when we arrived.

After arriving, we handed over our child to one of the cugini (it did not matter who) and enjoyed a relaxing weekend in the mountains of Arizona that included plenty of chatting, eating (thanks to everyone who cooked), coffee, a piñata, and visits to Downtown Prescott. I even managed to sneak in visits to two local breweries (Prescott Brewing Company and Granite Mountain Brewing)!

All three of us are looking forward to the next Prescott Family Reunion…in about three years since that seems to be our modus operandi.

Alessio’s First Swim Class

It had to happen at some point…Alessio would learn how to swim. Wife and I are already preparing for the 2032 Olympics where he will take home at least 25 gold medals! Can’t wait for that first endorsement contract and the house he buys us with the signing bonus.

Our Annual Christmas Decorating Party for Two

For at least the past 5 years, Wife and I have spent the Friday evening after Thanksgiving enjoying a few holiday inspired drinks while we decked the halls (really just our living room). Below are a few pictures from the party for two (four if you include Killian and our house guest puppy Kona).
