Helping Families with a New Baby

10 Ways to Prepare for a Cabin Camping Trip

10 tips for preparing for cabin camping

A couple of years ago, we decided to try out staying at a rustic cabin in a state park just as a fun family weekend.  Before the weekend was even over, the kids were already asking if we could go again the following year.  And now, we've already made reservations for our third year!  This spur of the moment decision three years ago has really turned into a wonderful family tradition for us.

This weekend, I had planned to do some writing amongst my other planned activities.  After all, we would be at a cabin in the woods and I would have down time with my thoughts and my handy iPad/keyboard combo. It ended up, however, that I didn't really have much time to write.  Instead... 1. We rented paddle boats for an hour.  (And had to say more than once, "My legs are on fire" from all … [Read more...]

I'm excited about the list this week, but it was a hard one to come up with.  I even needed to send out text messages to family (and post on Facebook) for ideas.  Sometimes, it's just hard to remember what people ask me.

The Vacation I Won’t Take Again

Last year, we took what could be seen as a dream vacation to many people.  Can you imagine a whole month looking at a scene like this: Well, you know, except for the entire week when our scenery was more like this: I know, it was pretty sweet. So, it seems really dumb to pick the vacation when asked to write a post about something I would like a do-over on.  This idea, as a whole, was … [Read more...]

Excitement isn't always fun, though it sometimes can certainly be.  I would say, without a doubt - today was kept exciting by lots of small and large occurrences throughout the day... 1. I am glad that I took a nap yesterday because I slept for approximately three hours last night.  Oddly enough, when the alarm went off at 4:40 am and Eric nudged me, groggily and said, "You have twenty minutes … [Read more...]
