Exploring with Kids: 36 Hours in Kansas City

15 Things to Do with Your Family Vacation Photos

The kids are back in school and once again you have time for yourself.

I’ll be honest, […]

12 Things You Must Do at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis

Over the summer, we had the opportunity to explore the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. The museum has received many accolades, so naturally, I’d been eager to go for quite some time.

Exploring with Kids: 36 Hours in Chattanooga

It’s a 15 hour drive to New Orleans (where my brother and his wife live) from our home in Virginia, so I knew I’d need to make a stop with the kids along the way and Chattanooga, TN was one of our stops (we also stopped in Pigeon Forge). The last time I was in Chattanooga was in 1998 and […]

18 Secrets to Surviving a Road Trip with Kids

It’s been two weeks now since I’ve been home from our seven-week road trip. There were good times, and not so good times, but I’m so glad I did it and I’m even more glad to be home. Sure, there were some not-so-great parenting moments along the way, but I learned a lot and am even looking forward to our next family […]
