A child’s (and parents) range of emotions

He was stoked to get there...then realized he missed us terribly...but once the sun comes back up, he'll be living the dream. Nolan's off to Martha's Vineyard to spend a few days by himself before the rest of our crew joins him next Wednesday.


Summer Vacationing

This is the first summer where all three boys can partake in the enjoyment of a family vacation, and it's been AWESOME! We planned three week-long trips over the course of three months - one trip a month - and after summer vacationing is complete, Nolan begins first grade while Graham will embark on his … Continue reading Summer Vacationing

Cork Board, Superheroes, and Crossing the Road

I'm not a superhero fan, have read maybe a handful of comic books in my life, and had never seen a superhero movie in its entirety until The Lego Batman Movie last weekend. I've never eaten a Trader Joe's brownie. I also have never thought more than looking both ways before crossing the road. Enter … Continue reading Cork Board, Superheroes, and Crossing the Road

Southwest Airlines, FTW!

As most of you probably know, I blog. As most of you probably don't know, I'm headed out to San Diego for the Dad 2.0 Summit. There's a snowstorm coming our way, looking like it'll hit Thursday morning. I was scheduled to fly out at 5:45am but with the storm's heaviest snow scheduled for between … Continue reading Southwest Airlines, FTW!

Product Review: Baby Bjorn One

Nolan was the beneficiary of the first Baby Bjorn I owned way back in 2011. It was a gray carrier with white and red trim and we used it every single day while living in New York City for the early part of his life. I'd wear it/him walking around the city, on the bus, on the subway...pretty … Continue reading Product Review: Baby Bjorn One

Trip to the Big Apple

Departure to New York City was determined the day prior to be between 8:00am and 8:30am. We left at 8:18am, so, for wintertime, with three kids, that's pretty much thirty minutes early. We arrived around 10:30am and got a street spot on W59th Street right near the horse-drawn carriage parking. Poor horses. The coachman/driver bellowed, "They're going … Continue reading Trip to the Big Apple

Thomas Land at Edaville USA

If you've got kids, chances are you've at least heard of Thomas & Friends. Maybe not even the friends, but probably Thomas the Tank Engine. And if your kids love Thomas, and even if they don't, and you live within a few hour drive of Carver, Massachusetts, treat your kids to an awesome day at … Continue reading Thomas Land at Edaville USA

Top 5 – MiLB Teams (New England+NY/NJ/PA)

In no way is this a Top 5 list based on wins and losses or production of Major League talent, but rather team name and logo. Let's face it, everyone loves aesthetically pleasing logos and fun, unique team names. Living in Connecticut, a state that's had two minor league teams for years - one of which has a … Continue reading Top 5 – MiLB Teams (New England+NY/NJ/PA)
