Snowmobiling Again

One of the highlights (for the adults at least) was a snowmobile ride through a true winter wonderland to the Continental Divide. While the boys were unable to drive this time, they were in tow weaving through trees, climbing up and down hills and playing a little in the open fields. It was the coldest…

A Chilly End of the Year

Our last vacation of the year took us out west to Colorado, to a resort some of us were at seven years prior. We were lucky to avoid all the travel chaos that affected many travelers over the last few weeks of the year, and jumped right into some winter fun – ice skating and…

A Disney Christmas

No rest for the weary, as we had another long park day during our weekend at Disney. We hit all our favorite rides, recharged with a dinner at Cinderella castle, and enjoyed Mickey’s Christmas party with more rides, shows, fireworks and a parade!

The boys’ first NYC Christmas did not disappoint with a trip to see the Radio City Rockettes, some window shopping and other fun that’s uniquely New York! Here are some highlights…

Holidays at National Harbor

We’ve been known to frequent National Harbor for summer and winter fun, but it had definitely been a while. So, we went all in with lots of holiday activities. From fireworks and ICE to slides, ice skating and cookies with Mrs. Claus, we came and conquered!

A Final Midwest Day

Our third day in Chicago showed no rest for the weary with continued amazing eats and fun times with friends. Oh, and we also did a little sightseeing!

A Busy, Beautiful Fall Day

Our second day in Chicago had a bunch of firsts and some more yummy encounters – this time with friends! We ticked off a key activity – deep dish pizza with friends – and took in some Halloween fun!
