Sunflowers at singapore's Changi airport

Why Changi airport in Singapore is best for families

September 10, 2016

Heaven forbid that any of us ever get stuck in an airport when we’re traveling with kids. Do you remember that movie where Tom Hanks go stuck in one?  This used to be my biggest nightmare when I traveled with two babies in tow-how would we ever survive? And thankfully it only happened a few […]

Summer in Seattle at Moss Bay Boating

When Tuesday is a little scary for a mom of twins on a Monday

September 6, 2016

I slipped and called my duo ‘babies’ at a wedding the other night.  But my twins really aren’t that little anymore and I can’t believe it.  My giant 8-year-old babies are starting school again in a few hours and I’m totally going to miss them.   Apparently this year my guys will be in different classes for […]

The time I drove a Ferrari in Tacoma

September 3, 2016

A few months ago, the family and I visited Tacoma for a weekend and had a fantastic time.  Although this city is only about an hour’s drive from Seattle there is so much to do that a weekend’s visit there felt like a perfect northwest ‘Staycation’ holiday. We really enjoyed visiting the Tacoma Art Museum […]

At first I imagined it would be the perfect cabin blanket […]

Gifts and books that can inspire little travelers

March 2, 2016

My guys have loved travel since our first trips up to see family in Vancouver when they were teeny tiny babies.  Because Vancouver is about a three-hour drive from Seattle, it meant a van-load full of stuff and drives conveniently timed between naps.  Back then our travel needs were totally different than they are now […]

EMP Seattle, Hello Kitty and should we go to Puroland?

January 20, 2016

How I managed to miss the Hello Kitty Food Truck in Seattle bewilders me but I know I’ll get my Hello Kitty fix in Tokyo later this year.  I am excited though to have my favorite little cat in OUR city and the exhibit at the Experience Music Project or what we Seattleites call the […]
