Family Friendly Victoria BC travel journal

We’re back in Canada! Hooray! …or should I say “Hoor-eh!”  Living in the Puget Sound area of Washington, we’re really close to beautiful Vancouver Island and try to visit whenever we can, and yet this is our first trip to Victoria that we’ve brought the kids on. We’ve partnered up with Destination Greater Victoria to […]

The Perfect Four Day Itinerary for Denver with Kids: museums & outdoors

We didn’t plan on falling in love with Denver but after several visits it’s just happened.  The Mile High City is really family friendly and beautiful, and being smack in the middle of the USA it’s pretty easily accessible from nearly anywhere in the States or Canada. Denver with kids is always a good idea, […]

Tempe with Kids: a super easy Arizona getaway

It’s rare that just one of us dads gets to escape for a trip with just one of the kids. It happened though!! It really did! Oliver (our oldest) and I (Rob) got to take an adventure down to Tempe, Arizona and it was the perfect bonding trip that we needed. Tempe was the ideal […]

Jekyll Island, Georgia: a weekend of family fun and relaxation

It’s been two years since we first fell in love with the Golden Isles of Georgia.  Our first experience was on St Simons Island when we visited the King and Prince Resort.  From the food to the Spanish moss, we were hooked. And now we’ve gotten to explore another of the Golden Isles:  Jekyll Island. […]

Chattanooga’s Tennessee Aquarium: the best family fish-perience

We often return to places that we have really enjoyed in the past, especially when it’s a place of learning and science that completely fascinates the kids. The Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga, Tennessee is just that: engaging, fun and perfect for family travel. Fyi, I just want to apologize in advance because this article is going to […]

Denver’s Downtown Aquarium: cool and “huh?”

We go to a lot of aquariums. I feel like I’ve started other posts about other aquariums that way too, but it’s because it’s true. Of all the aquarium’s we’ve been to none have impressed us with their theming the way that the Downtown Aquarium in Denver has.   Once you’ve worked for Disney you come […]

So much happenin’ at the Butterfly Pavilion

When you travel with kids a lot, you tend to do a lot of the same activities, but in different towns and cities.  I feel like I’ve been to the same park a thousand times.  How many times can we visit the beach and not swim because it’s too cold?  Well, we were excited to […]

The Georgia Aquarium: a complete experience

Unless this is your first time visiting our blog, you know that we LOVE aquariums.  We will find time to visit them on 90% of our trips (when available).  We were welcomed into the Georgia Aquarium recently to experience all that the sea has to offer…in Atlanta, and for a Behind the Scenes tour.  It […]

So many aquariums: 4 ways to decide if they’re worth your time (and our faves)

We’re big on aquariums in our house.  We have a local one that’s free and open only 4 days a week…and we go EVERY week.  Seattle has one that’s a boat ride away and we’ve been pass holders.  Tacoma has one that is paired with a zoo and that’s just a quick drive away.  And […]
