Playing With Rocks at Rocks!

Posted by 7 months ago 6 Comments 2725 views

Way back when we started this blog (has it really been 2 years?) I published a post called Making Travel a Priority.  In it I said: …to me, travel is a synonym for living life outside of the daily grind. It’s about date nights with the husband, day trips with the kids, and seeing concerts with friends. It’s […]

The Golden Golden Gate Bridge

Reminiscing about my weeklong road trip in California with the 8-Year-Old brings nothing but a smile to my face. Actually, there is a song that will forever bring me straight back to our CA road trip. It was not only the first song we heard in our rented Mustang convertible but the radio seemed to have […]

Posted by 11 months ago 11 Comments 1335 views

We did it! We cruised the Pacific coast and it was an amazing adventure! It all started with a flight to San Francisco. I love watching the 8-Year-Old on the plane.

5 Reasons I Will Make Travel a Priority for My Kids

Posted by 1 year ago 8 Comments 902 views

Last year I started an end-of-summer tradition by taking both kids to DC by myself. I thought it was a good idea to have some alone time with them doing something I love (traveling). We had a BLAST and it put all my fears of being the only adult traveling with 2 kids to rest. […]

Posted by 2 years ago 4 Comments 186 views

Considering it’s APRIL, I was really hoping for warmer weather today, but we were stuck with chilly low 50s. At least it was sunny and the wind tame. We packed our lunch, bundled up and hit the local trails. We live about 2 miles from one of the Gunpowder Falls State Park parking areas and […]
