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…

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…

Family Friendly Holiday Events in Seattle

Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year. I love the carols, the lights and decorating a good (real) tree. As my children are getting older, I don’t have as much opportunity to visit holiday-themed events in Seattle  but that didn’t stop me finding out what’s going on. (Thanks to my friend Meg Paynor for Read the Rest…

Winter Family Fun In Seattle

This is Seattle in mid-winter. It can be a pretty grey place. 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…

Family Weekend Getaways: Westport Washington

This is the second post in a series on easy family weekend getaways. With school in full swing and budgets tight, the dreaded stay-cation may be around for a while. This is my way of showing that you don’t need to turn your back on family vacations altogether, that mini-vacations in your own region can Read the Rest…

Family Weekend Getaways: Walla Walla Washington

When the school schedules for my children’s schools synchronize so that they’re both out of school on a Friday, it’s an invitation for us to squeeze in a short break. I love these mini-vacations during the school year. Yes, it’s a pain to close the door on a pile of chores and have them waiting Read the Rest…

Photo Friday: Lime Kiln State Park

We all have them: photos of our children which perfectly encapsulate both time and place and the child’s personality. When we visited Lime Kiln State Park on San Juan Island this past Labor Day, BigB was bound and determined to see some ‘real tide pools’ i.e. tide pools which were actually, you know, on a Read the Rest…
