The Kimberly - My Favorite Kid Friendly Luxury Accommodations In NYC

Recently, we decided that it was time for our kids to finally experience the Big Apple!  My husband and I had been many times, but this was their first experience, and I couldn’t wait to see NYC through their eyes. For a child, going from a small town to the big city is a huge change, and I knew it would be fascinating for them. New York City isn’t exactly what I would consider kid friendly, but it still has a lot to offer the young ones. From huge parks to amazingly tall buildings, kids are sure to be captivated by this impressive city.

Hooray For New Family Adventures with BEAR VALLEY SNOWMOBILE!

When you plan a family vacation do you make time available to experience new adventures?  I think most parents consider vacations as a time to relax, but vacations also provide us with time to squeeze in a little adventure too. Chances are you won’t remember the last time you relaxed by the hotel pool. What you will remember is the time you went zip-lining or snowmobiling. So when we were approached by BEAR VALLEY SNOWMOBILE, we knew it was an adventure we couldn’t refuse.

Photo Journal - Our Journey In Cartagena, Colombia

March 2016
,

Our first international trip with our children was to Cartagena, Colombia. It was filled with beauty, adventure and new experiences. It wasn't an easy trip by any means; we started in Utah drove 6 hours to Las Vegas, flew to Florida and then finally on to Cartagena. It was also our first red-eye flight and it might be our last. lol When I first started planning our trip to Colombia I would tell friends, family and others about our trip and the reaction was pretty much the same from everyone; a look of confusion followed by “Colombia, really?”. The reactions I received even started making me question this trip and whether it was a good idea or not. It can be hard for travelers to think outside of the box and even begin to contemplate visiting a developing country like Colombia. Looking back it was one of our best trips and I'm glad we made a leap out of our comfort zone. Here is our fantastic journey in photos:

The Athenaeum: Luxury in the Heart of London

February 2016
, ,

When I started looking for a great luxury hotel in which to stay while in London, I was given a suggestion from a friend to check out The Athenaeum. At first glance of their website, I liked what I was seeing. It is rare to see “family” as a tab on most hotel sites, let alone a luxury hotel. Some hotels claim to be family friendly, but you can be left wondering, “What does that really mean?” With Athenaeum, it’s clear from their site what they provide and how they can make your family vacation even better.

Easy

A friend of mine posted on Facebook this morning a cartoon that said "Thanksgiving: is a day when we pause to give thanks for the things we have. Veterans Day: is a day when we pause to give thanks to the people who fought for the things we have."

As an American I take Veteran's Day very seriously. It is a time to reflect, and to honor as well as express gratitude for the countless men and women who have fought and in many cases died for our Country. As a mother I am always looking for ways to make sure that I pass on this understanding and feeling of profound gratitude to my children. Here are 5 Activities you can do with your children to honor and give thanks to Veterans on Veteran's Day!
