Hilo Hawaii With Kids

I’d totally forgotten that Hawaiian’s wear flowers in their hair – and how beautiful it is. This and many other memories from my last visit to Hawaii flooded back as we wandered through the terminal in Honolulu waiting for our connection to Hilo on the Big Island. I was excited. I’d been to Maui and Read the Rest…

Three Easy Hikes Kids Love In Washington

Today’s guest post is by Allen Cox, a Seattle-based travel writer. Writing a hiking guidebook is a great motivation to get out there and find some new trails. When I wrote Best Easy Day Hikes Seattle and Best Easy Day Hikes Tacoma for Globe Pequot Press, I already had a handful of favorite local trails Read the Rest…

Hiking With Kids Annette Lake

Over the past few weekends, we’ve been trying to get out hiking as much as we can firstly, because we (my husband and I) like to hike and secondly because we need to all be prepared to hike the Machu Picchu Trail in October. My kids usually complain about going hiking because they’re geeky boys Read the Rest…

Snow Lake Trail Western Washington

It was mid-June and I thought this trail would be pretty clear of snow but I was wrong. It was a beautiful day, the sun was strong and warm when we passed out from under the tree cover. My kids (rightfully) grumbled at having to hike through snow pretty much all the way up and Read the Rest…

Holiday Decor Florida Style

We spotted this on a random residential street in Indian Harbour Beach, Florida. It was just too good to pass without taking a photo 🙂 This post is part of a Photo Friday series.

Swans At Lake Eola

We spent Christmas 2009 in Cocoa Beach, Florida with some family. I’m not a huge fan of theme parks and I didn’t find the strip-mall ambiance of the beach towns on Florida’s Atlantic Coast very appealing. However, we stopped in the Lake Eola area of Orlando on our way to the airport and discovered that 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…

The Oregon Trail At Whitman Mission

When we spent the weekend in Walla Walla last fall, we stopped by the Whitman Mission for a little leg-stretching between visiting wineries. As you would expect, the NPS provides plenty of information on the history of the Mission. CAM surprised us by sharing what he had learned in his Washington State History class about Read the Rest…

Visiting The Kennedy Space Center With Kids

I last visited the Kennedy Space Center when CAM was almost 18 months old. We had a great visit. He napped or nursed on the KSC Tour buses, we oohed and aahed at how cute he was tottering between the rockets in the Rocket Garden. Of course I had it on my must-see list of Read the Rest…
