FL Fun – Part 1

In an attempt to briefly escape the cold, we ventured south to Florida for the weekend. And while it wasn’t exactly warm the whole time, it was a solid 30 degrees warmer than home, so much appreciated, if even for a few days. Our first two days were filled with grandparents, pirates and playgrounds, and…

On the Polar Express

It’s been many years, and with one more kid in tow, but we ventured on a ride to the North Pole courtesy of the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad’s Polar Express! It was a new part of the country for all of us, and just a quick weekend trip, but it was a perfect way to…

Paradisus Paradise

As mentioned, we enjoyed our stay in Punta Cana, and specifically The Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real. Here are highlights from the pool and around the resort.
