Jacobs Well, Wimberly and Lucky Arrow

I’m happy to report and share another whale of a time and grand adventure with the kiddos! I love finding hidden gems and exotic type locations right in our back yard. Traveling is tough during COVID19, but not impossible. And there are tons of outdoor, social distance friendly type places to go. This was a…

Congress Bridge Bat Egress

Well I won’t lie, I was not immediately intrigued when a friend mentioned a “Bat Egress” for my next adventure with the kiddos… but boy was I glad I proved myself wrong! Nature just has this way of being magical, majestic and beautiful *always* and especially when and where you least expect it. The bat…

Stonehenge II, Waterslide Dams and Wineries, oh my!

There was adventure, excitement, ice cream, relaxation, wine, beer, food. All the fun things. One thing I love about about having Littles is that you wake up…

Mohonk, Affordably

Lets face it. If you want to go to Mohonk Mountain House, you’re going to have to shell out a bit of cash. Nightly rates start at around $600/night PER PERSON, if you book early enough, use a coupon code and get a great deal. Weekend stays can be prohibitively expensive. And entire weeks? Well… […]
