Providence: A City to See

Providence: A City of Architecture and History

The only thing I ever knew about Rhode Island is that it was the smallest state on it was somewhere in a pile of east coast states that I could never figure out. Now which one is New York, that’s it, no that’s Pennsylvania. Where is Delaware again? I suck at geography. Really bad. So bad […]

DC White House

Imagine always have an internet connection on road trips!

One of our favorite things to do as a family is to take roadtrips. In August, we flew to the East Coast to visit my sister-in-law and her family in Washington DC. After that we drove to the coast and up to Fenwick Island DE to meet up with my side of the family. Traveling […]


Halloween at Bellmont Park

I have lived in San Diego for almost ten years and have never been to Bellmont Park! I think there may be some law against that. Well, before I get my California Drivers license revoked I need to get down there and ride The Giant Dipper! Luckily it’s time for Boomont Park, and we have […]


The 2 Day Disney Cruise: Should You Board?

  My husband and I have considered taking Colt on a Disney cruise since he was a toddler. My husband was super excited at the idea. Me? Not so much. I enjoy a good day at Disney, but by the time the fireworks have gone dark I am ready to sprint to my car, Usaine […]
