San Antonio: The River Walk and the Alamo

San Antonio: The River Walk and the Alamo

October 27, 2010 No Comments On our recent trip to Austin Texas, one of the must-sees on my list was San Antonio.  I figured my last vacation to the city didn’t count as I was only three years old at the time!  I have pictures of myself running around the Alamo, chasing birds and felt it would be kind of ...

The Southwest Airlines Experience: Flying with Kids in Tow

October 17, 2010 2 Comments I have to admit when I first learned that the only airline that flew direct from Las Vegas, NV to Austin, TX was Southwest, I was a bit concerned.  After all, in the past the airline’s reputation had been less than stellar.  The reviews from friends and family were mixed; some had literally sworn never ...

 

The Packing Dilemma When Travelling with Small Children

The Packing Dilemma When Travelling with Small Children

October 3, 2010 2 Comments Before my husband and I had children packing was easy; even last minute trips took a half an hour to pack for. We’d simply throw our clothes and a few toiletries into a suitcase and off we’d go. Life changed a bit with the arrival of our son. Suddenly there were strollers, car seats, diapers, ...

Taking the Stress out of Vacation Prep

October 3, 2010 2 Comments   As children, my sister and I would watch our mother slowly lose her mind in the week or so leading up to a vacation.  Her insanity would start harmlessly enough with something small like dragging out the suitcases.  A few days before our departure it would progress to an obsessive need to keep every ...

September 26, 2010 1 Comment   Though our trip to Acapulco in April of 2009 goes down in the books as one of the worst I’ve ever taken, (see the article, Acapulco Mexico - Our First Disaster Vacation), the resort we stayed at was beautiful.  It’s located about 20 minutes from downtown Acapulco which is one of the things I loved ...

Zion National Park Utah: An Overview

September 16, 2010 No Comments One of the benefits of living in Southern Utah is its proximity to national parks.  While Bryce Canyon and the north rim of the Grand Canyon are each just a few hours away, the most easily accessible from our current place of residence is Zion National Park.  Although it’s located 43 miles from St. George, ...

First Aid Kit Essentials for the Traveling Family

September 16, 2010 1 Comment I was at the park with our 14-month old son one day when he suddenly toddled off the sidewalk and into a pile of particularly malicious woodchips. (By the way, why cities decide to use woodchips around playground equipment is beyond me. They not only cut, scratch, and leave splinters but they’re also extremely tempting ...
