Tacoma Museum Pass for families in Tacoma to see museums

An experience gift idea for families in Tacoma with the Tacoma Museum Pass

November 18, 2017

Who else is trying to find more ways to give the gift of an experience rather than something tangible this year?  As someone who gets a lot of joy from adventuring, I’m always on a quest for a way to share this with the people I love too.  I was really excited when I heard […]

How many nights do we need in Boston with kids in tow?

October 25, 2017

Forgive me if I never realized that Boston was a family travel destination.

Tiny Home Otto at Thousand Trails Leavenworth

A tiny home community where you can stay overnight in Leavenworth

October 11, 2017

One of my favorite parts of travel is that you get to stay somewhere that is NOT your home and through our travels we have stayed in many different types of accomodations. Before we had kids, we used to camp a lot.  If I had to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, […]

Hotel 116 with kids

A great hotel choice for my Vancouver friends when they visit Seattle

October 3, 2017

Yes, Vancouver friends, I know you said you’re visiting Seattle but I know that you really might want to stay in Bellevue.  If visiting “the mall” is on your itinerary and you are headed south to shop and hang out, Bellevue is becoming more and more of a shopping hotspot and I have a great […]
