Spring Break Road Trip!

While sitting around trying to figure out just what to do for Spring Break this year, it occurred to me that road trips don’t have to necessarily be reserved for summer vacations.  With that in mind I dialed up google maps and started to ponder just where our journey could take us.  We needed a trip that would be not only fun, but also worthwhile, since it would...

A Magical Return!

Honestly, I have to be the luckiest guy on earth…for I have now enjoyed not one, but TWO magical journeys to Walt Disney World with my amazing family.  There’s just something about these vacations that get me all giddy inside just thinking about them.  As most of you know, Jen and I surprised the kiddos (again) with their second visit to Disney World, and...

A Special Halloween Treat!

Finally!  The secret is out and we can talk about it!  Many of you may remember how we surprised the kiddos last year with a special trip to Disney World…well, we decided the trip was so special that it was time to head back.  We planned and booked the trip months ago, and we’ve been trying to figure out a way to spring it on them that was different than...

MICHIGAN 2010: The Videos

Well…..we’re back!!  It was a wonderful vacation that has (again) provided us with memories to last a lifetime.  But as we try to ease back into our routines (and crawl out of the mountain of laundry), it is taking a little longer to get the pictures organized and blog post written up.  So, I thought this would be a good time to post up the videos I made...

Family Reunion – 2010

Another 4th of July with family has come and gone.  And while it’s only been a week since we returned from New Mexico, I already find myself reflecting on the peacefulness and beauty of the land we get to enjoy once a year, and the memories of family we don’t see nearly often enough. After a somewhat eventful drive down (rain! rain! rain!), we had our...

A Week to Remember

As everyone knows by now, we decided to do something extra special for spring break this year, and we headed out to visit Grandma and Gramps on Nantucket!  It was everything we could have hoped it would be, full of special memories that will last a lifetime.  And while it certainly isn’t possible to summarize ALL the fun stuff we did during our visit in one little...

A Great Vacation – By the Numbers

“Nice to meet you Mr. Eeyore…”

As threatened promised, there was no way I was going to do just one Disney World post on this site.  The trip was just tooooooo amazing to cram into a few paragraphs!  So, for the latest update, I thought I would focus on all the special Disney characters the kiddos were able to meet while we were visiting the various parks.  I didn’t really think we got to meet...

The Perfect Vacation

Looking at the pictures from our amazing vacation to Michigan feels as if it took place months ago – but alas, it has been less than two weeks  since we were watching our kiddos play on the beach, while sipping a glass of wine watching a sunset like the one above.  After 30 years of visiting our cottage, I have come to the conclusion that it is (almost) literally...
