Happy 1st Birthday Lydi Bug!

Happy Birthday to our cute and spunky firecracker girl! Where in the world did the last 365 days go!? Kind of ironic how the first month seemed to go by SO terribly slow, yet the last 11 months totally FLEW by! We’ve definitely learned a lot together so today we’re not only celebrating Lydia’s first…

Happy 25th Birthday “Cameroni Macaroni”!

He’s the most easy-goin ginger I’ve met but he sure knows how to put up a fight in ping pong • He has the entire NFL, NBA, and MLB league stats memorized, I’m sure of it • He’s eaten more mac and cheese than the owner of Kraft himself • He’ll go above and beyond…

Brazil 2015

It was a last-minute decision and I’m so glad we had the chance to do it! (next time, we’ll start the whole visa process a little earlier–holy work!)

I also remember thinking it was the COOLEST thing while dating Cam that his Papa was an avid tennis player—so impressive, especially at his age (then again, that never…

Palm Springs/Cali!

We decided to take the 10+ hour drive and head to Palm Springs for Spring Break since we had a “free” hotel voucher from when we got engaged back in 2012 🙂 It turned out to be a very fun, memorable, first real family (just the 3 of us at least!) trip! We stayed in…

The Schroeder Show 2014 Yearbook

This year was a year of firsts (baby), change (home), happiness, and also much sadness. It’s crazy to look back and remember all that’s happened, and to remember that about 6 months ago I didn’t know how I’d ever make it to Christmas. Our little Lydia fits in so well, I don’t know how we…
