Replacing a Durastall shower in an afternoon

So this normally wouldn’t fall into the “travel” section of the blog, but during the road trip we stopped at Tavis’s folks summer cottage in Eagles Mere, PA. It all started last year… or maybe two years ago… when we were up at the cottage for a few weeks and had just finished remodeling our […]

Bike ride to the Sweet Shop in Eagles Mere

Although the mornings were a little chilly, the afternoons warmed up enough to take a bike ride down to the Sweet Shop. It is the perfect little soda fountain preserved in time. We got some ice-cream, I was originally feeding Aiden so I could snag a few bites myself  but then I was shoveling it […]

Arriving in Eagles Mere, day 4 of our road trip

This trip was planned around visiting family and Eagles Mere was the first stop to see family on this trip (if you don’t count all the visiting we did in our home town before hitting the road…) Tavis’s parents purchased a cottage in Eagles Mere, PA around 30-35 years ago and have been traveling up […]

The Small Guys on Campus (end of day 3)

After a long day on the road there is nothing better than a pot roast that has been cooking all day in the camper while we were sight seeing. For Tavis and I it was nice to relax over dinner and not be sitting in a restaurant. For Aiden, there is nothing better than a post-dinner-wrestling-session […]

Road Trip Day 3, Blue Ridge Parkway

If you want to catch up on our Road Trip, you can do so here (Day 1 flying to the upper 48, Day 1 retake, Day 2 part 1 Biltmore Estate, Day 2 part 2 Campfire Lodgings) It would be the understatement of the year to just say that I took a lot of pictures […]

Road Trip Day 2, part 2 Campfire Lodgings

First of all I am going to apologize for the lack of updates… I made the classic mistake of thinking that I was going to have plenty of time to blog while on vacation… FAIL!! I had tons of free time but it was all spent sitting on a beautiful front porch, sipping something (coffee […]

Road Trip Day 2 part 1

If you are just joining us check out Day 1 here. We ended up with so many pictures from day 2 and I couldn’t narrow it down so I decided to break it up into to posts. The first one will be on the Biltmore Estate and the second one will be at the campground […]

Day 1 on the road… Retake

I decided that since the first week of our trip was a lot of maintenance, packing and getting ready for the road, I am going to start our day count over. That way I can erase all the craziness of the first week and a half. So this post is about the day before we […]

Days 1-3 of our 6 week road trip

So… we have been planning this trip for a while and have most everything lined up.  Although we didn’t put too much pressure on it being perfect, we were not expecting the “humor” that we experienced the first few days… The first leg of the trip went fairly smooth. The flight was great, for the […]

Airstream Road Trip!!

So in about a week Tavis, Aiden and I are flying back state side (we live in Puerto Rico currently) and we are going to be hitting the road in our Airstream travel trailer!! I am really excited because this will be our first big trip in a long time and our first “real” long […]

Tips for taking your baby to Disney World

Whether you have a new born and you are venturing out on your first vacation with the little one, or you have several kiddos and just want to make sure you are prepared, there are plenty of things to consider before heading into one of Disney Worlds 4 theme parks. I have been going to Disney […]

How to come home from traveling with your sanity intact

  There are a lot of tips out there about how to plan a vacation and how to make your vacation great, yet most people tend to forget to plan to come home from a vacation. Since we live in Puerto Rico, and our family is all in Florida, we travel home as much as possible to […]

His first home was an Airstream

I never imagined it this way. I never sat there dreaming about having a baby of my own one day and bringing him home to an Airstream. I usually pictured a meticulously decorated nursery that I had fussed over for the past 9 months until it was perfect. His name was on the wall in […]

Easy Marinades for steak, kabobs and other grilled beef

We love to travel, and with that travel we get to eat… a lot… I’m not sure about you, but some of my strongest memories are  associated with smells or tastes. I will smell plumeria lotion and be taken back to a trip I took to Peru, when I was in high school, and I […]

Airstream Dreamin’

  So when I first met my husband, Tavis, he mentioned a few times in the course of our conversations, that he really liked Airstream travel trailers… a lot. So much, in fact, that he had lived in one full time for several years when he was active duty in the military. To his credit, his parents […]
