Meeting Fiona at the Cincinnati Zoo in Ohio

Fun fact: The Cincinnati Zoo has been around since 1875. Since we’ve made it our mission to discover the wonders in our own backyard, we had to take a trip to Ohio to check it out. And we were so excited, because we would get to do a behind-the-scenes tour of the facilities. So, we […]

Hiking with Giants in Kentucky

Since y’all know that we like to walk and run like our lives depend on it, for this adventure, we decided to embark on our longest hike yet, listed at 13 miles, at a local park while we were in Kentucky. But first — as usual — there’s coffee. Since Daniel is addicted to the stuff, […]

Our Airstream Adventure: Daniel’s First Time Emptying the Poop Tank

Yes, you read that correctly. While we always make sure to look for the silver lining in everything, sometimes even the loveliest of experiences can have a not-so-pleasant side.

Paradise Without a Passport: Escape to The Breakers

After months of pandemic lockdown, I needed a getaway to soothe my soul. NOW. The Wall Street Journal headline tells me I’m not alone: “Vacationers venturing out – but not too far.” Airlines are out. Road trips are in. So off I go across the state to jump in the Atlantic, overlook the sea at sunrise, enjoy gourmet options in lavish surroundings […]

Play, stay, even study: A family golf-cation at Reunion Resort

My son Zack started playing golf over a year ago, but this summer after five weeks of golf camp and lessons from a pro, it was official: He’d caught the golf bug. From then on he wanted to spend more time on the course and the driving range. Reunion Resort in Orlando offered just that. Only […]

But you wouldn’t want to be doing that in six months’ time,” deadpans Tom, our tour guide, who just a few minutes earlier had […]
