Yesterday I ventured into New York with Zoe and Ana. We took the train (which they love more than actually being in the city sometimes)… and set off for Chelsea Piers and the KidzVuz Holiday Party. It’s not our first time attending the KidzVuz Holiday Party. We’ve been to a number of their events… and stop
On a beautiful fall day–the only day on our entire calendar that was completely empty–my husband, two kids (ages 10 and 8), and I packed our lunches and bikes in our mini van, and headed 35 minutes south to Duke Farms in Hillsborough, NJ. Duke Farms was originally owned by James Buchanan Duke (tobacco and electric power
October has arrived… and with it has come the crisp air, the cool breezes, and the changing colors are beginning all around us. It immediately has us thinking of our annual visit to pick out our “fall decorations”. Each year we pick up a couple bales of hay, a few potted mums, and a wagon
Though the calendar says September, the weather is still perfect for some outdoor adventure. One activity that is always a hit with my family is stream exploration! It is cheap (actually free, unless you do a guided trip), educational (but don’t tell the kids!), and doesn’t need many supplies or much planning. As for timing,

There’s always something magical about taking my kids to a place that I enjoyed as a kid. One of my clearest memories of the late 1970s, when I was about 5, is of my mom, sister, and me piling into our neighbor’s wood paneled station wagon with her two kids, and heading off to Lancaster,

Born in Arizona got a condo made of stone-a King Tut (sort of) is on 5th ave right now! My son is studying Egyptian history in seventh grade social studies and my daughter and I are currently reading the second book in Rick Riordan’s Egyptian-themed series The Red Pyramid, so when given the opportunity to
There’s the smell of spring in the air! I don’t know what changed, but it feels like winter is almost over! Now’s when we get those occasional days that just make you want to get out and enjoy – but what to do? Keep this day trip in your back pocket for just that time…….
