The Kids are Restless #GreatWolfLodge

I think we’re all pretty tired of the cold and snow, but we show it in different ways. My husband and I sigh when we look outside and choose not to venture into it unless we have to. My dog lays in front of the door, but if you open it for him he immediately retreats to his kennel. And then there’s my kids. The kids have gone off the deep end! School mornings are filled with tears and fake illnesses. After school until well after bedtime my kids are wound up. They’re restless and they need something to...

Mount Snow Gets Family Camping Right

Each summer parents across the country label clothing, pack bags and kiss their children goodbye before sending them off to camp. For children this means they are escaping to a place full of friends, fun activities, great meals and evening campfires. For parents it means back to life as usual, albeit in a quieter house. Meals still need to be prepared, laundry must still be washed and all the while they are checking the mail obsessively for that coveted letter from camp. So when do parents get their escape? Surely it’s not on the two hour drive to the...

Photo Blog: Los Poblanos Historic Inn & Organic Farm

Albuquerque is rich in heritage and that is especially apparent when you visit the Los Poblanos Historic Inn & Organic Farm.

Los Poblanos has worked hard to retain the Historic Inn’s heritage and atmosphere, including keeping the original fixtures and appliances wherever possible. It was a delicious breakfast and an enjoyable...

Lakes of Wasaga, a Parkbridge Resort

A change of scenery is really nice, especially in the summer months when the kids are climbing the walls and complaining of boredom. When that change of scenery includes Georgian Bay, it’s absolutely breathtaking. My family and I had never visited Wasaga Beach before, and the kids and I had never seen Georgian Bay before, so this was a real adventure for us! We headed off to a Parkbridge resort called Lakes of Wasaga. Located at Wasaga CountryLife Resort, Lakes of Wasaga offers cottages and chalets that you can rent or buy and are suitable for visitors all year...

  • Pool or beach?

Most of my family is excited about the beach and snorkeling excursions we booked for our @royalcaribbean cruise, but my youngest child is not. He prefers a pool to the ocean, although he is always fine when we get there. #beach #pool #ocean #lake #cruise #excursion #snorkeling #sand #waves #blues #royalcaribbean #fun #family #kids #familyvacation #familytravel #familytrip #son #travel #travelwithkids #mexico #belize
