We live in the Seattle area of Washington State and we love it!  It’s got everything from the mountains to the Puget Sound.  Heck, even the ocean isn’t too far for a day trip.  We also have some really amazing small towns.  One of our favorites is Leavenworth, Washington.  It’s cute.  It’s quaint.  It’s manufactured.  Huh?  Yep!  There’s a great

We travel a ton.  That’s our family schtick:  “2 dads raising their 2 sons and traveling the globe, giving the kids a broad world view. Traveling, parenting, and experiencing culture.”  We like to go to the common tourist destinations and some off-the-beaten-path ones.  It’s good to have a mix.  You never want to hit up a destination too many times

We are always up for an unusual dining experience.  We love sushi when there’s the chef’s choice or ordering “catch of the day”.  Um, what’s it gonna be?  We also love when the dining style is totally unexpected.  Example:  you’re seated for fine dining and discover that it’s a buffet style dining room with really incredible dishes.  That’s what we

As we stay in more and more hotels it becomes clear what we like and don’t like, what is good for family travel vs couples travel, and what’s just awesome.  We snuck away without the kids again (really, it’s not our norm) and got to celebrate our anniversary weekend across the mountains at the Sleeping Lady Resort in Leavenworth, Washington.
