Help a mom out

You can’t ban families with children from flying the friendly skies. I agree that, at times, kids don’t make for the best travel companions, but I oppose any thought of grounding families like mine.

Finally, a GOOD vacation!

Icacos beach, PR
As you might remember, the last time that Dylan spent time with my family, he was NOT on his best behavior. Tantrums, sleepless nights, general grumpiness…the boy definitely made us re-think taking him on any more trips for a long time to come!

A Mediterranean Cruise Story (Part 1)

A cute little street in Sicily.  Mamma Mia!
First of all, I’d like to thank my good friend Lisa Matthews for her great entry two weeks ago:  Opinionated Nuggets and for my husband’s fantastic Father’s Day Week Entry.  I know that some of you are probably wondering where I’ve been the last couple of weeks.  Well, we went on a family trip to...
