This past weekend was gorgeous! Perfect camping weather! We hadn’t been camping yet this summer (not even deck camping where we sleep in the tent on our back deck), so, on Friday afternoon, we decided to check if our favorite campground had any available sites. Fortunately, they did! So, early Saturday morning we headed off
Last week, we went on a road trip. Back to my ancestral (okay childhood) stomping grounds: Virginia. I grew up in Washington DC, but my grandparents retired to a lake community in Virginia, where I spent a lot of time. My parents now have a weekend home there, and that’s where we usually visit them
For the past several weeks of posts, I have listed over a hundred local day camps for kids to explore Sports, the Arts, STEM, History, and Languages, in addition to specific camps for Preschool and Special Needs. (You can find them all here.) My kids love having the summer time to learn about these subjects,

You’re going on a trip! Yay! But now you have to pack. Boo! So what is your packing style, anyway? Are you very regimented, making lists, packing ahead of time, rolling your clothes to make the most out of your space? Do you have special bags that adhere to FAA regulations and perfectly travel sized
This past weekend was the first game of the season for my son’s travel soccer team. As with past years, my husband and I like to watch the games. My daughter, definitely, does NOT. For most of her life, she has been dragged, unwillingly, to soccer/baseball/hockey games in the heat, snow, rain (she sat in
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,
On a sweltering August afternoon, my son was invited to go with a friend to do something – ANYTHING – indoors to get away from the heat. They decided to go to the Morristown Game Vault, an arcade with over 85 classic video games and pinball machines that opened this past spring in Morristown, NJ.
