I have absolutely fallen in love with history. The history I’m surrounded by on a daily basis. The history that I walk by, drive by, and live by but yet have no idea what it really is.
I thought I knew. I mean, I think we all want to believe we know what has happened around us, but there is always something new to find out. Something new to uncover or simply to understand.
Have you ever had a conversation with someone who is such an amazing storyteller that it immediately makes you want to learn more about their stories? That’s what happened on our first night in Tampa Bay.

I don’t think I ever learned about solar power in school. I feel like as I’ve gotten older it has become something more real. More attainable and something both of my boys will learn about as a legitamate source of energy. Continue reading “Solar Power and Kids – How A Trip To The Park Can Mean More…”
There was no doubt in my mind, that if we traveled to Pennsylvania this summer we would absolutely visit Hershey, PA. I have never been, and although it was a little out of the way of our Pittsburgh route, it was a non negotiable.
I honestly didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t know too much about it. I had done a bit of research but there were so many “Hershey” themed attractions when I googled it… I didn’t know what we were actually going to.

Have you ever heard of Kennywood? If you know anyone from Pennsylvania you probably have. It is part of so many kids childhoods, including my husband’s and his entire family.
His entire family goes to Kennywood every summer, and every Christmas. It is just something people from the Burgh do. It is a staple there. I will admit, I am a bit jealous we haven’t been there for Christmas yet. Maybe in a few years. Continue reading “I have no souvenirs from Kennywood… and here’s why…”
No matter what city we travel to, I always want to see what activities there are for the family. We happened to be in Pittsburgh last month and the weather was beautiful for a few days we were there. When I say beautiful I mean not crazy hot like South Florida. I was able to wear SLEEVES!!! Do you know how excited that makes me?

Florida is hot. Plain and simple. Just hot. We don’t have seasons, we have a few days that may try to pass as a “cool” front.
I miss seasons. I need seasons. I need cold. Enter Gaylord Palms. Continue reading “Ice at Gaylord Palms”
If you looked on any social media this summer, the opening of Toy Story Land was EVERYWHERE. I have to admit, I was living in serious FOMO land. You know, the fear of missing out.
Even when I heard there were 6-hour lines just to get into Toy Story Land, I was sure I was missing something amazing. It was on my list to go as soon as I could.
Enter the Pitt vs. UCF game. Billiam was headed to the game and I had a whole day to myself with the boys. What to do??? What to do??? (wink, wink)
Let’s do this! Continue reading “The Best Tip I Can Give You About Toy Story Land”
As a little girl, I would travel to a lot of places in the south with my grandparents and dad during our summer visits. One of the places I remember going was to Stone Mountain. It was a special memory for me so as we were planning our trip to the Atlanta area, I knew this one one of the places I wanted to take my boys.
Thinking back on my memories I remember it being hot, I mean Atlanta in the summertime…. I remember a huge lawn and watching a laser light show. Aside from that, I don’t remember much else that they had. Continue reading “Stone Mountain Adventures”
