Our Own March Madness


March always starts off with the best day ever - Owen's birthday! We still can't believe that he's 10!


Grandpa and Grandma Barrett joined us for dinner at one of Owen's favorite Asian restaurants. 


And....in our tradition of never-ending birthdays we visited Nonna for more birthday fun!



Acorn here is contemplating our busy month. Basketball was coming to a close, lacrosse was starting, Noah has been rehearsing for his school play and Owen started taking a Stop Motion Animation class. Insane I tell you!


The boys took advantage of a basketball workshop at Marist college. It was great! They also won 5 prizes during the raffle! Owen was most excited about the cookie platter!


Frank injured himself helping Noah get ready for his first 5K. He's fine now, but I'm glad he finally listened and took time off of work to heal.



Lucky for me that his injury made it easy for me to attend a few events. First stop was Miracles From Heaven with Jennifer Garner.  She was funny, but did say something that did not sit well with me. Funny thing is that it was cut from the YouTube Video of the event so it wasn't just me!


Then I was able to preview Bright Star on Broadway! You can checkout my review HERE. I cried! I love the musical collaboration between Edie Brickell and Steve Martin. 


Noah's school basketball team made it to playoffs. While we didn't win, it was amazing that we placed at all. It was an on the edge of your seat game every time. We are so proud of all of these guys!


Noah ran his first 5K race. Frank was going to run it with him, but couldn't because he was still recovering from his injury. He started it with him, but Noah left him in the dust soon after it began.


He finished the race in 25 minutes and 57 seconds! Not bad for his first race! He was one of the first 10 kids to cross the finish line!


We decided to take a last minute Spring Break trip to Philadelphia! I love traveling with these guys! 


Our first day out we experienced so much! Here we are at the Liberty Bell! We walked so much!


We ended our first day exploring in Chinatown! This will be the third Chinatown the kids have been too! Noah ordered the duck! 


We had a spectacular view of the Ben Franklin bridge from our room! 


We hit the park, the Franklin Institute, the US Mint, Federal Reserve and so much more. 


These are pics of the boys riding the Sky-bike at the Franklin Institute! They were scared at first, but loved it!


I have been dying to get this pic for ages! This statue of Rocky is now at the bottom of the stairs at the Philadelphia Museum of art. Many consider it a movie prop and not art so a compromise was made and it was moved. 


Here are my favorite guys in the world sitting at the top of the stairs after their historic run! Check out my Facebook page for a full album from this trip. 


We celebrated Easter a day early this year at Sue's house because Walter had to leave on Easter Sunday to go back out on the road. 


We also celebrated his February birthday since he was away then too! 


On Easter Sunday Owen served mass. He was so thrilled to have this honor. We spent a quiet day at home and had a vegetarian meal to celebrate. 

See you next month!
