Ski trips, my oldest son’s first cross-country road trip, a night camping with rhinos, backpacking trips, Disney trips, family trips, solo trips, baseball and basketball trips, we packed a lot into 2023. Youth baseball was a new thing for us this summer, and it changed our weekends, fully embracing their new love for team sports. That was a gateway to my sons’ new love of sports, and we aided them with trips to see major league baseball (adding Nationals and Blue Jays games to our hometown Pirates), minor league baseball day trips in Washington, PA, Barrie, ON, and Erie, PA, an NBA game in Cleveland, OH with LeBron James and the Lakers in town, two trips to Canton, OH for the Football Hall of Fame, and a visit to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. Ski trips to Park City and Stowe helped me work on my own new love for skiing, and hikes in WV and TN/NC helped me explore more of the Appalachain mountains.
