Tanaka Farms in Irvine California is a great place to take kids to learn where food comes from

January 8, 2018

Do you love knowing where your food comes from?  I recently did a poll on my  Instagram Stories and I was so excited to see that an overwhelming majority of people care about the story of their food.  I feel the same way.  I love hanging out on factory tours and finding locally made things.  I […]

Make way for duckling in Boston with kids

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.

Getting ready for an October Monday in Seattle

October 5, 2015

I can totally get used to these no-umbrella, sunny fall weekends in Seattle especially now that it’s soccer season.  We spent the weekend tidying the house, playing soccer and bike-riding through gorgeous fall leaves (and I’ll update you on our big bike ride later this week!) but it’s perfectly autumn in Seattle right now so […]

family road trips by electric car

A family weekend Tesla Trip to Coeur d’Alene and stops along the way (roadtrips from Seattle)

July 29, 2015

It’s a great time for electric cars in Seattle right now-everyday it seems like we see more and more on the road and I even noticed a bus advertising AAA emergency roadside charging service for electric vehicles and they have a lot of resources on their website too. This type of thing makes road trips […]
