A Sunday Full of Memories

Looking back at my childhood I can recall a number of specific memories that have stuck with me for one reason or another.  Whether it was receiving a gift that I had longed for…or taking a trip somewhere special…these memories were strong enough to stand the test of time and still remain relevant in my life.  If I had to wager a guess, I would say this past...

Spring Break Road Trip!

While sitting around trying to figure out just what to do for Spring Break this year, it occurred to me that road trips don’t have to necessarily be reserved for summer vacations.  With that in mind I dialed up google maps and started to ponder just where our journey could take us.  We needed a trip that would be not only fun, but also worthwhile, since it would...

A Fantastic (and frigid!) New Years!

Talk about starting off 2011 with a bang! We had such a special end to 2010…and it honestly ranks up there as one of my favorite New Year’s celebrations ever. Usually we spend NYE at home with friends and family, but this year I decided to mix things up a bit. I surprised the family with a little trip to Estes Park, and we stayed in a condo just outside...

A Magical Return!

Honestly, I have to be the luckiest guy on earth…for I have now enjoyed not one, but TWO magical journeys to Walt Disney World with my amazing family.  There’s just something about these vacations that get me all giddy inside just thinking about them.  As most of you know, Jen and I surprised the kiddos (again) with their second visit to Disney World, and...

A Championship Weekend

As I stumble through the amazing journey of being a parent, I am starting to realize there will be certain moments that stick with me forever.  That not only define my role as a parent, but also teach me lessons about what being a parent ‘is’.  This weekend was one of those moments. As you know, Cameron has been playing soccer for almost six years now, and...

Introducing the Gallery

Obviously things look a little different around here…but I wanted to first draw your attention to a very special addition to oldweiler.com – and that’s a Photo Gallery!  A while back I set up a different blog dedicated solely to pictures, pictures, and more pictures…but it was getting to be too much of a hassle to maintain all these sites....

It’s that time of year again…

I realized this morning while walking Cameron and Ellie to their first day of school that the expression “time flies” is ringing more and more true with each passing year. Honestly, I could subject my loyal reader (notice the clever use of singular there…hi mom) with countless paragraphs of ‘where-has-the-time-gone’ anecdotes, but instead I...

Family Reunion – 2010

Another 4th of July with family has come and gone.  And while it’s only been a week since we returned from New Mexico, I already find myself reflecting on the peacefulness and beauty of the land we get to enjoy once a year, and the memories of family we don’t see nearly often enough. After a somewhat eventful drive down (rain! rain! rain!), we had our...

A Week to Remember

As everyone knows by now, we decided to do something extra special for spring break this year, and we headed out to visit Grandma and Gramps on Nantucket!  It was everything we could have hoped it would be, full of special memories that will last a lifetime.  And while it certainly isn’t possible to summarize ALL the fun stuff we did during our visit in one little...
