There is something about Southern California that keeps drawing us back. Playgrounds on the beach, long sunny days, avocado’s at every meal – all things we will never get tired of, and all just a regular part of life for California! Here are our favorites and things we would recommend to any family visiting Southern California and metro San Diego.
Oh, how we love Colorado! We were so happy when some friends rented a mansion and invited us to stay with them for two weeks in Westminster, just north of Denver. Of course we said yes, and our families had a great time spending Christmas & New Year’s together!
It’s safe to say we fell in love with Costa Rica! We had incredible food and met the nicest, most generous people. There is a lot to do with kids of all ages, and we will absolutely return someday with our girls when they are older. We spent 17 days here in 3 different locations. Each were very different from each other and gave us a good feel for the variety that Costa Rica has to offer.
Spending two weeks in our nation’s capital was a treat and we loved every minute. There is so much history to (re)learn and some incredible sites to see. The city is full of museums, political buildings, and so much more. Here are our favorites and recommendations for anyone traveling here with kids:
Our stay in Boston was a quick 4 days, so they were full of fun, and really busy. It was really cool to finally see many sites that we learned about in history classes throughout school, plus some other gorgeous spots in the city. We visited in October, which was perfect timing.
Rhode Island, the ocean state, kept popping up on our radar to visit, so we were happy to be able to include a week here on our grand adventure. If you’ve never visited this tiny state, start making plans to come here! We had a great time and can’t wait to share some of our favorites with you!
We spent a week in August in Cape Cod and really picked the right time of year to be there. The weather was sunny and high 80’s every day – perfect beach weather during the day, and cool enough to walk around & sit outside in the evenings.
