Return to Wonderland

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...

Having Fun at Rehoboth Beach

We got back from an extended weekend at Rehoboth Beach.  We stayed Friday through Monday — just the right amount of beach time for me and a good way to avoid beach traffic. Crossing the Bay Bridge was a breeze – I highly recommend doing it before 2pm on a Friday. We attempted to...

Grand Times in Southern VA

We spent last week down in Southern Virginia, spending time with the gramps.  The plan was to spend the week with the grandparents, then travel from there to Buggs Island, where we had plans to camp and boat with friends.   This meant we were traveling with Grandad’s boat.  And since we were in the...

A Dutch Wonderful Vacation

Usually, we do a big backyard party for Sam’s birthday each June.  I tend to go all out (see the Race Car, Frog, and Construction parties for example) and this year, I just wasn’t feeling it.  I didn’t have the energy to do the big birthday ‘do so I decided to make a deal...

A new Little Cabin in the Woods

I’ve mentioned before, that we typically go to a small cabin out near Front Royal over New Years with friends from college.  The good thing about the cabin was it was free, not too far away, and “rustic” enough that it was okay for everyone to bring their 17 dogs (I exaggerate, a tad). ...

Last week, we had two teacher workdays on Thursday and Friday, followed by a Columbus Day holiday on Monday.   It meant five days of no school! Mike took the kids (all three!) down to visit his parents in southwest VA, while I stayed home to enjoy a staycation by myself.  It was blissful to...

As if our summer vacation wasn’t full enough, we had the opportunity to go to Kings Dominion the day we got back from our New England Vacation.  Grandad’s work takes the employees and their families every year to Kings Dominion for the day, and for the past few years, we’ve managed to weasel our...
