We took some time this weekend to go back to Dutch Wonderland.   We went last year around this time to celebrate Sam’s birthday.  This year, we just went because it’s fun. Last year, we stayed at the Amish Country Motel in Bird-In-Hand.   It wasn’t fancy, but it had two rooms, which was key to...

Moms Gone Wild

Don’t we look like some wild and crazy gals? Actually, we’re not all moms, and we were anything but wild, but we just enjoyed a deliciously decadent kid-free, husband-free, dog-free, responsibility-free weekend away in Williamsburg, VA.   We had nice super affordable accommodations, thanks to a great Living Social deal. On Friday, Michelle and I...

It’s hard to believe that we hadn’t been down to visit Grandma & Grandpa since Thanksgiving (!), but we rectified that last weekend with a trip at the beginning of our spring break.  We began our Saturday at our preschool’s Eggstravaganza, and ended the day with the Grands. The weather wasn’t perfect, but we...
