Glamping with Grandad at Bethpage Camp Resort

Glamping aka “glamorous camping” We take the kids camping every summer.  Typically for us this means a tent, an air mattress and access to a bathhouse.   This year, our camping trip got a major upgrade when we joined Grandad for a weekend of “camping” in his RV.  While I can’t quite consider this climate-controlled,...

Happy Birthday to Me!

I enjoyed a lovely low key birthday weekend. On Friday, my beloved planned out and prepared a delicious steak and shrimp birthday dinner and made homemade tiramisu cupcakes.  Yum! I received a cupcake with two candles, because, according to the pastry chef, “that’s how many years less than 40 you are”. Adam thought it...

Look Ma, No Training Wheels!

We love gliders (aka run bikes aka balance bikes aka pedal-less bikes).   Our older two kids have learned to ride by first learning to glide.   Now that our three year old is a master glider, I’ve been itching to get him on a “big boy bike.” Apparently, a downside of gliders is that once...
