As I mentioned yesterday, I’d like to inspire and encourage the “tourist in your own town” mentality this summer. So I’m doing a series of posts about things to do in specific cities with kids this summer. Over the next few weeks I’ll highlight lots of major cities Continue reading 20 Things To Do In Atlanta This SummerShare This Post
Within the next month schools all across the country will be out for the summer. As a parent of school age children I’ve found there is nothing more exciting or daunting than the first few days of summer. On one hand, we turn off the Continue reading 20 Things To Do In Charlotte This SummerShare This Post
My little girl loves science. Over the years various teachers encouraged the obsession. She enjoys reading non-fiction books about animals, plants, and solar systems. Her favorite activities involve the word- “experiment.” We’re constantly Continue reading The Great American Eclipse: Coming August 2017Share This Post
Please let me start by saying, you really can’t go wrong when you visit Hawaii. I mean, it’s HAWAII! Every inch of soil in that state is fabulous. However, there are a TON of decisions to make when you plan a trip. Admittedly, I haven’t Continue reading Where To Go When You Visit HawaiiShare This Post
Last summer I had the bright idea to head south in late July. I’m not going to say it was a horrible idea because, honestly, we had a fabulous week. But- it was a tad hot- even for me. If 100% of our plans included a pool or the ocean, it would have Continue reading 5 Places To Go This SummerShare This Post
I talk to a lot of people about travel. And I also try to read every travel article I can get my hands on. I love looking at different perspectives and ideas. Every family is completely different. What works for my family may not always work for another. Additionally, Continue reading 8 Ways To Make A Trip Memorable For KidsShare This Post
I have mentioned this before, but it’s worth repeating: our family loves to read. My daughter walks around with her nose buried in a book about 99% of the time. Tucking my son in at night requires moving about 30 books from his bed. Admittedly, my own reading has significantly decreased during this season of life; however, I still LOVE a good book. In fact, since I have less time to read I cherish the time I do have even more!
When we travel- especially on beach trips- I make sure to bring several books. Occasionally all the stars align and I find TONS of time to read. (Other times I’m not so lucky- for example our most recent trip. I packed 4 books for almost 20 hours of airline travel. Then I read a grand total of 189 pages.)
Anyway, I found an intriguing list the other day. It’s a list of the most famous book set in each of the 50 States. Although I’ve only read a few (actually, I’ve only even heard of a few!), I still like the list. It’s doubtful that I’ll read my way down the list, but it’s a great resource for selecting more books to add to my reading list. Check out the list here.

Y’all, I love lists. Not just a little, but a massive LOVE. I make bucket lists, to-do lists, and prayer lists. I make lists of things I know how to cook and of go-to disciplines for my children. And of course, packing lists.
Not to sound completely crazy- though at this point, it may be too late- but I often make Continue reading The Ultimate U.S. Landmark ListShare This Post
