Inspiration for where to travel with children

New York City with (grumpy) Teens

I don’t think I’ve ever live-blogged before – this is my first attempt. The gurus says “Don’t live-blog while you’re away from your home, people will know you’re away”. Thankfully someone already broke into our house and stole the only stuff worth stealing so hey, that frees me up to pretend I’m feckless and fancy-free Read the Rest…

Whistler with babies and toddlers

Today’s guest post is by Keryn Means of Walking on Travels. Winter fun isn’t just for the big kids. Little ones can dive in feet first with family-friendly activities for kids of any age, many of which are free or cheap, and will never take place on the famed slopes of Whistler. Get the kids Read the Rest…

The View from my Window

I recently moved teams at work. This is the priceless view from my new desk. My team will likely move again, office shuffles being a common feature of any corporate environment, but for now every time I stare out the window, it’s a treat. I don’t think I’m daydreaming any more or less than when Read the Rest…

Hotel Review: Residence Inn Seattle

Residence Inn Seattle: A great choice for families. I’ve driven past the Residence Inn by Lake Union in downtown Seattle a hundred times but it was only when Marriott invited me to come visit the hotel at a mom blogger’s event that I got a chance to explore this property. I’m happy to have done Read the Rest…

5 Reasons To Choose Whistler With Kids

Last week I wrote an accommodation primer for planning a trip to Whistler with kids. It seemed natural to follow-up with 5 reasons to choose Whistler for your family ski trip. 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…

Whistler Canada Accommodation Primer

We’ll be visiting Whistler in February. That’ll make 12 years of fun family ski memories at this expansive Canadian mountain resort. I shared this with a friend here in Seattle who immediately came back and asked for help in planning his first trip to Whistler with his kids. His primary concern was where to stay Read the Rest…

This past weekend we took a walk to Fremont, a quirky neighborhood in Seattle. On our way there, Read the Rest…

Snorkeling With Manta Rays

BigB was not enthusiastic about the idea of snorkeling with Manta rays. I was surprised by his reluctance. We’ve been snorkeling before, albeit not for a couple of years. It only took a few moments for me to winkle out of him that he was scared because we haven’t been snorkeling since he’s been wearing Read the Rest…

Imiloa Planetarium And Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

Jet-lag is tough on the body but sometimes it’s worth it. Like when BigB and I traveled from Seattle to Hawaii and found ourselves awake with the birds and a perfect opportunity to explore Liliuokalani park in Hilo without a soul in sight. This park leads to Coconut Island (pictured above), a pretty peninsula with Read the Rest…

Wanderfood Wednesday: Cinnamon Rolls in Kona

BigB and I stopped for coffee in Kona on our way to the airport after three really fun days on the Big Island. The Lava Java cafe is perfectly situated on the Kona waterfront for a sun-soaked relaxing coffee stop and some people-watching. BigB, as you can see was more interested in the cafe’s excellent Read the Rest…
