Winter Spring Summer or Fall — 2010

I love the end of the year recaps.  List of top albums, top news stories, all of it.  Here are the highlights of the year we had in our house…

Ringing in the New Year is always a chilly event in Chicago.

Happy New Year!
Though never too cold to visit the beach.

Before I knew it, it was time to put my winter training to the test at the Shamrock Shuffle.

We got a break from the cold on our West Coast vacation.

But first, a quick girls trip to Minnesota.

 We managed to find time for a great date night.

Great Evening

Before we knew it it was softball season again.


May was a blur, 75% travel month for my husband and a trip to San Francisco for myself.

Kicked off summer with a favorite race a few weeks later, Soldier Field 10 miler.


June brought a 10th birthday.

Art Party

This summer we had our first experience at The Feast. What fun!

While Jeff We hit up the beach for the weekend with friends.
Minus the Jackies

Some rock-n-roll, half-marathon that is.


Back to the beach, for a week this time.

Vacation was ended with a few days with cousins.


Man time flies when you are having fun, back to school!

Back to School

Made the most of the final days of Summer with sailing trip, we could not have had a better day.

 Tall Ship

The kids headed to Michigan with Dad while the running crew took on the Chicago  half-marathon.
Race Prep
After many years we finally got ourselves to a MSU football tailgate.
Go State!

We had our annual fall block party, which of course means tie dye!

The youngest turned four.

Finn is Four

10th annual Hackoween was as fun as ever.


Halloween was not far behind.

Pumpkin Carving
We were all together for Thanksgiving this year.

Holiday good as it gets

The end of the year included a birthday dinner to remember.

Holidays full of family, friends, and too much fun!

One in every family

Hard to believe another year is behind us.  Even more amazing to look back at all the things we’ve done this is only the highlights.  A great year, let’s hope 2011 is even better!

Happy New Year, hope it is fabulous for everyone.

    I absolutely love the recap Jacky! The picture of your two youngest looking out into the water is my favorite picture.

    Is that your oldest son in the yellow shirt? How is he doing?

    Hope you have a wonderful New Years Jacky! 😀

    I love that photo too. Sunset on the beach is the best part of our vacations. That is Andrew in the yellow. He is doing great. Home from school now with one or two classes to graduate in May. Hope you have a wonderful New Year!
