Burke, VA, United States
Mike and Kerry have been married for 12 wonderful years! Colin and Ashlynn keep us on our toes with activities, constant jokes and entertainment. We were blessed to add Bethany, our eldest daughter, to our family a few years ago...she started out as the best babysitter EVER and quickly became part of the family. We enjoy out Air Force life and view every move as a new adventure full of travel and new friends! In that great adventure we've moved from Columbus, MS to Suffolk, VA to Waldorf, MD to Fairborn, OH to GERMANY to Burke, VA and now our lates move settles us in bright sunny Fairfield, CA!

Sun:  Church and Swim lessons...

AAAGGGGHHHHH!  Can we say we are VERY busy!

All of the soccer pics are on facebook as well .... click here!

Colin is becoming quite the little soccer pro!  He has decided that defense
is his calling and really gets into the position! 
Last season while watching Colin play, Ashlynn said..."Why don't I play soccer?" 
Well because she had never asked...she had always been happy with dance, so this season
 we are trying out soccer...and so far she REALLY likes it and is VERY aggressive and fast! 
We will see if this sticks or if we just stay with dance!

Happy Easter!

What a better way to end a WONDERFUL spring break, then with a wonderful Easter Day!  The Easter Bunny left us lots of treats, we read our Easter Story eggs as we sat waiting for church and after a few Easter pics, spent the afternoon with our fabulous friends for lunch and an egg hunt!  Yep....that's a perfect Easter day!

Spring Break

What a busy but AMAZING week together!  We started out the week on a boys/girls break.  The boys needed to make a raod trip to take papa the truck, so while they were having a blast in the truck and hanging out as 3 generations of Phillips men....Ash and Mommy stayed home for lots of craft/girly movies time and a few small outings with the Dunne girls!

The boys came back on Tuesday night, we washed laundry, re-packed and were back on the road Wednesday morning!  We headed down south, stopped to tour the Jamestown settlement...

Thurs we were off to the playground and Beach for a day in Virginia Beach (and a FABULOUS reunion dinner with our old neighbors from Suffolk, the Deans...or as we told Colin...his 1st girlfriend, Savannah, her brother Ethan and Beth and Jamie, and of course a drive through the "old stomping grounds")...

Friday we headed back to check out Yorktown, strolled through the VA Living Museum and then enjoyed a very nice dinner with our great friends the Spanos!  We were even lucky enough to catch Steph home!

After a LONG drive through traffic back to DC...we unloaded the car, changed clothes and were on the road again.  We jumped on a VERY crowded metro and were off to the Red Sox/Nationals baseball game (a total surprise to the kiddos) where we watched the Red Sox WIN!
