Pismo Beach: The Spring Break We Hope To Have

  (Don't miss the video of this trip at the bottom!) We’d seen pictures of all-terrain vehicles blasting through sand dunes in Pismo Beach, like Mad Max searching for an adventure in a post-apocalyptic future. It doesn’t seem too far of a stretch based on what’s...

Fun Things to Do with a Toddler While You’re Stuck at Home

I’ve heard so many people say, “I’ve never experienced anything like this.” That’s one thing we can all agree on. Lines at grocery stores as if it’s Thanksgiving, toilet paper in high demand, empty shelves where baby wipes used to be, canceled events, people wearing...

How to Survive a Quarantine with Four Kids (and a Grandma!)

As everyone now knows we are officially dealing with a pandemic of epic proportions. I have four kids, one is medically complex, and my eighty-seven year old grandmother lives with us. I, like others, am limiting our risks. Normally, I am the mom that has zoo and...

Exploring Celtic Gardens in Galway

Most Irish school children learn about Brigit, an early Christian saint who was almost as important as Saint Patrick – she even has her own holiday on February 1st (without the green beer). But Brigit is also a significant part of Irish mythology because before...

How to Protect Your Family from Coronavirus While Traveling

Even before the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) reared its ugly head to disrupt all our lovely travel plans, traveling was a dirty business. Yes, you know there are those of us who don't wash their hands after going to the bathroom, kids who slobber all over their hands...

Experience the Wild Side of Florida

When my husband told me at the beginning of November that he had vacation days to use or lose come January, that’s all I needed to start planning something fun.  Since we live in New England, Florida seemed like the best place to travel to in December. It’s not too...

How to Re-Light That Spark in a Disney World

Whenever my fiancé and I start to feel like we’re out of sync or we haven’t had a real conversation in a while, we set a coffee date. And by “coffee date”, I mean that we make coffee in our kitchen or run to the closest drive-thru and then bring it back to sip on our...

How to Survive a Vacation in Europe with a Baby

After years of traveling to Europe with my mom, and becoming a bit of an addict, I made the conscious decision to continue my adventures once my daughter was born.  It would be amazing. I would show naysayers that your whole life doesn’t have to stop just because you...

Cancun for Families: Two Ways

Cancun is big enough for both of them. You can visit one and the other won’t get jealous. On your next family trip to Cancun, visit the sister properties of the Park Royal Golden Cancun and the Grand Park Royal Luxury Resort. Two miles apart in the hotel zone of Cancun, both offer Los Angeles families convenient beach fun. #LAFamilyTravel #CancunFamilyVacation

Grand Velas Riviera Maya: An All-Inclusive for All-Inclusive Haters

It’s the perfect all-inclusive vacation for families who hate all-inclusive vacations. The Grand Velas in Riviera Maya, minutes from the Cancun airport, will satisfy your luxury trip dreams at a Mexico-affordable price tag!

We’re the family that didn’t sell all their stuff or quit their jobs or homeschool just so we could travel the world. We’re an ordinary city family with a love for adventure and a desire to explore and understand the people of the world. But. We also have two boys whose favorite pastime is to try and kill each other. Our stories involve survival as well as appreciation.
