A Tiny Taste of the BVI

Our first taste of the BVI was a little more condensed than expected, as our boat tour to little islands around the main island was cancelled due to weather. That didn’t deter from a great visit though, with a fun speedboat transfer to Cane Garden Bay Beach and a lovely time enjoying the area.

Back in St. Thomas

It had been nearly 15 years since the Tucker adults were in St. Thomas, and we decided to head to somewhere new – Sapphire Beach. This little slice of blue-green heaven had everything we needed…a stretch of sand, beach bar and restaurant and even a marina with jet skis (too bad the water was too…

A First Family Cruise

We set sail this spring break on the high seas for a trip to the eastern Caribbean and back. Within moments of boarding, finding out there was all-you-can-eat ice cream and soda sold Colin from the start. Owen was more impressed with seeing Mickey and friends. Here are a few highlights from being on the…

Bricktastic Hotel Stay

A stay at the Legoland Hotel was an experience all in itself, and our quick weekend there went by in a flash! Not only were there Lego to play with everywhere – including in the room – there were surprises like a treasure hunt in the room, a Master Builder workshop available to guests, fun…

Making up for No GWL This Year

While COVID doused our plans for a trip to Great Wolf Lodge this year, we made up for it with a morning at Legoland Water Park! There were slides and pools and rivers and more – we didn’t want the fun to stop!

Building a Day of Fun!

While Peppa Pig World was more for Owen, Legoland appealed a bit more to Colin (though both boys had the time of their lives). We eased into the day, getting a tour of where they build displays for the park, and then went through all the rides we could possibly want! We took in a…

An Oinktastic Dream Come True

Even since Owen heard about Peppa Pig World coming to Florida, it’s been his dream. He’s prepared each day since the early days of the pandemic by listening to episodes at breakfast and watching shows on the weekend (among his many other interests). Finally, his dream came true just a week after the park opened!…

Family Fun Weekend

We broke up the typical weekend with extended family fun – and got to experience some activities we haven’t done in forever, including Disney on Ice and bowling!

Freedom!

It happens but once or twice a year, but as a treat for “both sides,” it was a weekend of freedom from each other! Just a half hour apart, but a world away, when the kids and parents are separated. The adults headed to Berkeley Springs for some good food and catching up on sleep,…
