From the Road: California (Week Four)

We survived our fourth week on the road. I can’t believe it either. There have been ups, downs and I’ve come down with a small cold, but we’re still moving on. Every couple of days it’s a new city and it’s been a lot of driving, but it’s been pretty amazing, too. Day 22: Los Angeles, CA We made the […]

From the Road: Arizona to California (Week Three)

It’s hard to believe that we’ve already been on the road four weeks (I’m still catching up on week three, as you can see). My husband was with us this whole week, which was definitely helpful, especially when there were sights I wanted to check out that I knew would be a no-go with the kids. It was another week […]

From the Road: Texas to New Mexico (Week Two)

We arrived in California yesterday, but since it’s been more than a few days since I’ve had reliable wi-fi, I’m just now sharing the second week of our cross-country road trip. We’ve had the usual bickering, crying and world-class parenting moments, but overall it was a pretty good week. We drove a lot, we saw a lot, and we’re still […]

Postcards from…San Antonio

I wish I could have spent more time at the Alamo, but the kids were ready to move on.

I had planned to post more often, but painfully slow wi-fi the last couple of days put a damper on that plan. To be fair, we were in a fairly remote area of New Mexico, so I shouldn’t have expected super-fast wi-fi, but I couldn’t upload or download any photos, so blog posts were off the table. We had a […]

From the Road: Virginia to Texas (Week One)

It’s hard to believe that we’ve already been on the road for one week and have driven more than 1,600 miles. As I type this, we’re in San Antonio after having spent a couple of days in Galveston. The kids are starting to enjoy checking out a new city every couple of days. I wish they’d put their iPads down […]

Postcards from…New Orleans

The one-hour guided tour at Mardi Gras World was a great way to learn more about the celebration and how the parade floats are made.

We left New Orleans yesterday morning after a couple of days of fun and a visit with family. We swam in the rooftop pool at the Sheraton New Orleans, ate beignets at Café du Monde in the French Quarter, saw parade float props being made at Mardi Gras World and met my brother’s new baby. Oh, and we ate some […]

Postcards from…Chattanooga

Look for little red bird houses, like this one, all over Rock City.

We’re on our way to Texas in the morning, but I wanted to put up a quick post to share some of our photos from Chattanooga. We only had a day to explore this lovely town in Tennessee, but we made the most of it at Rock City and Ruby Falls. I also wanted to check out the Incline Railway […]

10 Summer Must-Do’s with Kids in Pigeon Forge


I’ve written about Pigeon Forge several times, both for Travel and here on Kidventurous, and finally I had a chance to take my kids over the weekend as part of our cross-country road trip. Driving down Parkway, the main drag in Pigeon Forge, was admittedly overwhelming. There are so many things to do, from musical shows to go-karts to […]

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Minute Maid®. All opinions are 100% mine.Last month, I shared with you a post letting you know that, yup, you’re doing a good job as a parent, even when it feels like you’re not. I have a middle-schooler, so there are many days when I feel like I’m failing […]
