Colorado and the NPL Finals 7/2016

Jocelyn and I spent the last couple of days in Colorado for the NPL Finals.  Unfortunately, her team didn’t make it out of their bracket but overall they played well.  You win some, you lose some.  For the most part, the games were all early in the day which left the afternoon for a bit of siteseeing which we tried to take full advantage of.

Ocean City 7/2016

Jocelyn had a mini-soccer camp in Ocean City from the 6th through the 8th. We decided to tag along for just a day to help get her teammate’s luggage down to the beach house they were staying at and then Joela, Jessica, and I went and spent some time at the beach.

Boston 6/2016

With the assist from Gabe, I scored a flash deal on some plane tickets to Boston.  It was my first time visiting Bean Town. Didn’t really go in with a plan. Just wandered around the city for a bit.  Checked out Newbury street, ate some good food, and visited Fenway Park.

New York City 11/2015

Our original plan for the weekend called for us to head to North Carolina for a soccer tournament.  Late Thursday night we got word that the tournament was cancelled. Since we were already packed we decided why not take a trip to the Big Apple instead.  Once we got to the city, we met up with my cousin Erica who we hadn’t seen in a long time. She showed us around Manhattan and Central Park and then helped us figure out a game plan for Saturday.

All-in-all we did what I guess most people do when you go to NYC for the first time.  We visited the Central Park Zoo, the One World Observatory, the Empire State Building, the famous Macy’s in Herald Square, and Tiffany’s on 5th Ave.  We got some cheesecake at Junior’s, ate hot dogs from street vendors, and got some late night slices of pizza. We road the subway and the girls got to do a little shopping in Times Square.  Everyone had a blast! We’re already planning to go back so we can catch a Broadway show.

Speed Stacking

Been awhile since I posted last.  What I can I say? Life gets busy at times.

Last weekend Jessica participated in a Speed Stack Tournament at her school.  She had been practicing for a couple of weeks leading up to it.  Overall she did pretty well.  As a bonus, her big sister, Jocelyn, was a volunteer for the tournament.

 










Soccer + Cuban Food + Roller Skating = Weekend

This past weekend was pretty busy. Both girls had stuff going on. Jocelyn’s soccer team participated in the Hunt Valley Annual Soccer Tournament in Warrenton Virginia. The weather on Saturday was pretty nice. A little chilly but nothing crazy. Sunday on the other hand was miserable. 40 degrees was the high. The team did well though and ended up taking 1st place. On Saturday, they tied their first game and won their second game 5-0. On Sunday, they tied their first game and won their second game 5-0. Jocelyn had 4 goals and a couple of assists for the tournament.

I was happy the tournament took place in Warrenton. My favorite Cuban restaurant is located there and I always make an effort to stop by for a mojito and some steak.

After we finished up with soccer on Sunday, Jessica had a roller skating event with her Girl Scout troop. Jocelyn was lucky enough to tag along.
