Ski With Kids 2012

Summer 2012 was particularly dry in Seattle. 48 days in fact, a tie for the second-longest on record. In fact, we only had 0.01 inch of rain on September 9th, we haven’t had any since and there’s none in the 10-day forecast. It’s all very unusual and since we’re still in shorts and enjoying this Read the Rest…

Wine Tasting with Kids – and Bikes

Wine Tasting with Kids: Introduction Wine-tasting is one of those leisure activities that many people sacrifice at the altar of Disney once they have children. It doesn’t have to be so. With my two very active boys we’ve found that if you combine wine-tasting with say, a picnic and an active day out it can Read the Rest…

Four Reasons to Go Wine Tasting with Kids

Cycling to wineries is a fun day out for parents and kids. Cycling means you get to visit less wineries but it’s a great active day even with little kids. Many wineries are beautiful buildings with sizable art installations but the art is typically outdoors providing ample opportunities for goofy kid-art-posing. Although you may not Read the Rest…

5 Reasons To Choose Whistler With Kids

My kids learned to ski at Snoqualmie near our home in Seattle. As they were taking weekly lessons there we used a trip to Read the Rest…

Preview Of Whistler Before The 2010 Winter Olympics

We spent last weekend at Whistler Blackcomb – our first foray onto the slopes in this ski season. I had been expecting to avoid Whistler this year since I thought that accommodation pricing would be higher than usual because of the Olympics but I was able to find a pretty good last-minute deal for a Read the Rest…

A Review Of 2009 On WanderMom.com

At the start of the year my husband and I were caught up in a Great Recession-fueled tornado. I think we’re just starting to feel like our feet are back on solid ground now as New Year 2010 approaches. During that time, I managed to keep up Photo Friday posts and not much more. But, Read the Rest…

At this time of year when it’s dark early in the evenings and daylight hours get shorter every day (shorter by 3 minutes per day from now until December 21st actually), it’s not so easy to drum up enthusiasm (or energy) to get Read the Rest…

Photo Friday: At The Pumpkin Patch

It’s Photo Friday again! I do try to keep my entries to this fun Friday tradition travel-themed, but every so often I come across some particularly cute photos of my kids which just need to be shared 🙂 These photos were taken at Biringer Farms, outside Everett, which was our preferred Pumpkin Patch in the Read the Rest…
