Quebec City With Kids

Winter in Old Quebec City

I’m going to go ahead and assume that you would never be unhappy with a visit to Quebec City, especially with kids. We were there in the winter, when it was below freezing every single day and we still had the time of our lives and our kids did too! If you’re looking for a winter destination, but you’re not too keen on needing it to be a ski...

A visit to Leavenworth, WA

Leavenworth, Washington. If you have visited Bavaria or you wish to visit Bavaria, but you haven’t made it to Germany yet – then Leavenworth is for you. If you love the magic of lit up theme parks and buildings with colorful palettes and gingerbread accents – then Leavenworth is for you. German food? go to Leavenworth. Every winter the town of...

Ice Castles, NH

Lincoln, NH is a perfect day trip or weekend away from Boston during the winter. Every year, Ice Castles are made by ice artists who make these gorgeous formations out of hundreds of thousands icicles.  They have five other locations across North America and from pictures they all look absolutely gorgeous. It’s really crazy when you walk up to the front...

Kauai

When I was a little girl, Hawaii was where we went in the summer. One to two splendid week/s out in the south pacific, you can’t get a better dream destination. So, I started out quite spoiled with my idea of a holiday 😉 Sam and I have been back -once a little over a year into our marriage  and then again Easter week when Liam was a year and a half and Jude was...

Colorado

In late November we took a four day trip to Avon, Colorado which is right past Vail. We did absolutely nothing. And it was perfect. We booked a dream vacation through travelzoo and we stayed at the Ritz Carlton . The dreamiest place I’ve ever been! Our days were filled with playing in the snow, naps, walking around Vail and eating Bavarian pretzels. I mean...

Sweden

Our first day in Sweden we drove through Malmo and Lund, both really pretty. We just drove through Malmo, we hadn’t been in the car very long from Copenhagen because the bridge connecting the two countries isn’t that long! But we already had a one year old fall asleep in her seat and so we didn’t want to disturb her nap, as this often is the case...

Denmark

Denmark was on my list of destinations, but it wasn’t very high. It was probably lowest out of all of Scandinavia, and I just don’t know why. I think it’s because I hadn’t seen a lot of it or heard of anyone else really traveling through there. But I was so wrong. Denmark is just lovely in every single way. We arrived in Copenhagen for our...

camping in the White Mountains, NH.

I’m probably going to nod my head and exclaim a confident “SURE” if you ever ask me to go camping with you. But, in my head I’m probably thinking, geez I hope this doesn’t pan out. I don’t do well with bugs or sweat and definitely bugs and sweat together.  I did, however, consider glamping and I’m ever so glad I did. We drove...

Amelia Island, Florida

Sometimes you just need to find that little place on the earth that instantly feels like you could go back over and over and never tire of it. We didn’t know that is what we would find on Amelia Island, but it was waiting for us when we got there. I have an extensive list of where I want to go, and the outer barrier islands of the east coast is one of those...
