Sibling Bonds – A Post-Spring Break Tale

FAM, kids, LIVE, play By March 22, 2016 Tags: , , , 6 Comments

Spring break. The time parents plan for and children dream about. A trip to the beach, amusement park, or in our case, the mountains. We chose to drive to our destination. It forced family fun and was simply easier than flying with our gear.

Separate Family Vacations… Sibcations? Kidcations?

LIVE, play, ROAM By September 9, 2010 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

Last month, my daughter and I were very fortunate to be guests of the San Juan Marriott in Puerto Rico. While keeping my eyes open for all the hotel had to offer babies and toddlers, my daughter and I also got to experience all that Puerto Rico offers families. It was a great little break for the both of us, and baby brother was left at home in the capable hands of Daddy.  Or so I thought.
