One of the coolest places we’ve ever visited as a family is Antelope Canyon in northern Arizona, near the Utah border. Guys, this place wasn’t even on my radar, but I’m so glad a friend mentioned it to me when I told her about a trip we were planning to the Grand Canyon. And now, I want to share this travel gem with you!
It’s summer vacation season, and with Canada’s 150th birthday this year and a weak Canadian dollar, many of us are choosing to stay home and discover a little more of our home and native land. But, before you go, you need to check out the new book 25 Places in Canada Every Family Should Visit. The book, by Calgary travel writer Jody Robbins, takes you coast to coast with detailed descriptions of THE BEST places for affordable family adventures in Canada.
Just recently, we had another heated family discussion about chores and money. It’s a constant source of frustration at our house because the kids seem to have a lengthy list of things they want or need, yet there’s definitely room for improvement when it comes to how much they help out around the house.
Hi, friends! Just a short post today to ask you all for a favor. I’m asking you to take one minute out of your day to sign this electronic petition which calls on Ottawa to invest $10 million dollars into ovarian cancer funding.
When it comes to research dollars for women’s cancers, breast cancer leads the way, while ovarian cancer lags far behind.
Family photos stress me out!! If you watch the show Modern Family, you might remember the episode where Claire spends the whole day worrying about everybody wearing white. She’s so worried they’re going to get their white outfits dirty before the photos even start.
It was a gorgeous morning for the Sprint for Life 5 K in the Medical District of downtown Houston on Saturday morning. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect – there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and, at 7:30 am, we were able to avoid the Houston heat and humidity.
So beautiful! It’s the first thing I say when people ask me about our recent trip to Turks and Caicos. At times, I felt like I had to pinch myself – is this real?? It was absolutely what our family needed after a busy fall and holiday season.
The first thing you notice flying into Providenciales, the main island of Turks and Caicos, is the turquoise crystal clear water. From the air, you can easily see the reef surrounding the island, making it one of the best snorkeling and diving destinations. It also makes for calm, relatively shallow waters, which is great for kids and those who aren’t fond of bashing waves (that would be me!).
We have just returned from a crazy, but fun Thanksgiving trip to California. Our suitcases are barely unpacked, but I’ve decided to blog while it’s still fresh in my memory.
Halloween candy. For real, friends. At 5:30 am this morning, the dog committed a classic case of counter surfing…and tore into my daughter’s treat bag. He had himself a feast of lollipops, candy and chocolate. Needless to say, he’s been in the dog house all day. Here’s the remnants.
Not making light of this…I know chocolate is bad for dogs. But how was I supposed to know?? I was fast asleep.
The only good that comes of this is I get to introduce you to Charlie, the 6th member of our Party of Five.
