Farm Life

I grew up in the country, but I was pretty much the most reluctant country kid alive. I don’t like dirt or bright sunshine, and mosquitoes eat me alive. Every once in a while, though, I do long for the privacy of wide open…

Case of the Missing Hawaii Recap: SOLVED

I never talked about going to Hawaii on the blog! Huge oversight. It was our 49th state and how could I skip over arguably the best the US has to offer? Well…because I had a second miscarriage halfway through our Hawaiian vacation in February,…

Alaskan Adventures

Our cruise stopped in three Alaskan ports, which were Juneau, Sitka and Ketchikan, and we spent a day cruising Glacier Bay National Park. We also stopped in Victoria, British Columbia. None of the stops seemed long enough, but I guess that is the nature…

If You Want to Get Away From It All

Do you suddenly feel like you want to run straight into the woods and forget about everything? Yeah, me too. And I know the perfect place to go. First, make sure you like tigers.   Rad! Who doesn’t like tigers? No one, that’s who….

45, 46 and 47

Venice and Rome

Venice! One day and one night. Beautiful maze.  Throw away the map because it won’t help. Roma! A lot fewer pictures of us because we were getting a little…haggard…at this point.

Amsterdam and Vienna

Only a day in Amsterdam and a few hours in Vienna, but we made the most of it. Vienna: we had time to take a quick walk and grab dinner and I got to practice my 5+ years of German for a few hours….

Paris

A few highlights from our days in Paris.

London

Photo dump. In random, jumbled order: the Globe, St. Paul’s, Trafalgar Square, London Bridge, the London Eye, Highgate Cemetery, Prime Meridian Line, Brangelina, Westminster, Big Ben, the Great Fire Monument, Tower of London, and the British Museum. And other things.

Wisconsin Water Park Review Part 2

Did you think we forgot Great Wolf and Kalahari? Ha. Great Wolf This park is fresh in my memory because we just stayed there last month. Great Wolf is one of the big parks you can see from the highway. You’ve probably seen the…
