Legends live forever.

Legends live forever but sometimes they move towns. With some big changes on the horizon, it was time for a shakeup of the Wiktor garage. After many years of fun and a lot learned about what goes on under the hood, the FJ60 went up for sale. Old Blue went quickly which was a little…

Shreddin’ the ______

Okay, so if it’s happening in Fairfield, PA, there probably isn’t much “shreddin’ the pow-pow” going on. Nonetheless, Dad was thrilled to be peppered with requests by the shorter Wiktors to go skiing again this year. This time around, both Sophia and Will put the planks on and tried their luck on the slopes. Since…

Christmas traditions

Over the last decade or so that Phil and I have spent Christmas together, even as we’ve moved around the country and added kids to the mix, we still think fondly of our Christmas traditions with family in Minnesota. As the years have passed, we’ve spent less Christmases in Minnesota then we wish but that…

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree

Ok, so there was no dancing and it didn’t look anything like the scene out of my favorite Christmas movie, but we certainly had a great time celebrating the holiday season with a few of our friends at the White House Christmas Party. It was a bit of a sensory overload taking everything in during…

Full of Thanks

I probably sound like a broken record but one of the biggest blessings of our time in Virginia has been the ability to spend time with family and occasionally host them at our house. With three of the five Wiktor/Case siblings now settled on the East Coast, it was the perfect excuse to have everyone…

London calling

Not that I need an excuse to travel, but it always sweetens the deal if it involves visiting friends or family. Shortly after we moved to Virginia our good friends received orders to England. I knew a trip to England had to happen while they were there. Despite Phil and I having traveled through much…

Just another month in VA

Aside from Dad’s relentless work travel the past four months (the end is in sight), VA continues to be the source of smiles for the family. Three years after discovering it, we finally got a picture with the kids in front of “their intersection.” The kids continue to enjoy school and rarely come home with…

What do you do on a rainy fall day in VA?

Head to Hollin Farms of course! You can’t have fall pass in VA without heading to apple country and spending an afternoon filling up a few bags, eating an apple cider doughnut, and enjoying a tasty beverage. Since we aren’t rule breakers and it can’t be fall without apples…out came the boots and raincoats and…

Off to the beach!

On the top of the kids’ to do list each summer is a trip to the beach. Mom did not disappoint and we were able to squeeze in two quick trips to the beach this summer. First, we made a quick trip to Virginia Beach and Cape Charles. While the kids had fun splashing around…

Home Again

What a trip! We always head to Minnesota saying “it has been too long” regardless of the time passed since last visit home. Minnesota in July is about as good as it gets. Beautiful weather, tons of outdoor things to do, and plenty of family to spend time with. We started our adventure in Rochester…
