Our No-Media Family Vacation (Complete with campfire recipe!)

Last week, we took our official annual family camping trip. Each summer, we take one trip to a California State Park that I deem “official”because it is with kids and without cell phones, laptops, or iPods. The only media we allow are cameras and Kindles (for capturing memories, and because we can keep all our books in one place). What I discovered on this trip was that three days of no Facebook updates, no check-ins, no Tweets and no notifications can actually be…

Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home

Wooo! Lucas and I are home after seven days in the Sunshine State.  We had such a great time, and seeing my mom again was like surfacing for air.  It had been too long.  It will always be too long. …

Goodbyes

My husband and I took a trip to Florida last week. His grandfather passed away, and we were headed down to attend the funeral and spend time with family. We made the long trek from Pennsylvania to Florida by car. Crazy? Maybe..

Things I've Learned This Week

** Just so we're clear, I will still drink the wine if a fruit fly lands in my glass.

** The end of the school year is when all the crap that's been shoved into a tiny desk for nine months suddenly makes its way into your kitchen (or your trash).

** My son thinks I grew up in the early 1900's.  Awesome.

** When you don't have…

Things I Learned on our Family Vacation

I normally do these "reflective" kind of posts on Fridays, but I was just too swept up in Paradise last week to sit down and really use my brain for anything productive.  But now that I've been sucker-punched by reality once again, I decided to look back on the finer things I discovered on our family vacation....

** Every day should end in a…

Spring break? Already? You've got to be kidding!

My husband threw me for a loop with his question. "What do you want to do over spring break?" he asked.

Um, what? Spring break? He had to be kidding. I'm still packing away the last of the Christmas decor - just last week I found a stray box of hooks on a bookshelf.  Surely it can't be time to plan for a spring vacation already.

Besides, I still have the vacation pamphlets I picked up last spring - you know, the one  for bicycle rentals, the one for that…

My Home Away From Home

My family has always been cottage-goers.  Growing up, a few relatives had cottages, but one in particular had very special memories, and always felt like home.

My Aunt and Uncle owned a small cottage on a quiet little bay.  It wasn't anything extravagant, but I have some of the best memories of my childhood from up there.  This cottage sat on a small cliff with about 50 stairs…

The Moral of Griswold Family Vacations

I have never been a world traveler. I’ve only ever left the country to go to Canada, didn’t go to Walt Disney World until I was 19 years old, flew once on an airplane when I was 2 years old and not again until I was 24, and I have never been on the West Coast.

I can still remember those random winter days when we would gather for a family meeting to discuss where we wanted to go for our family vacation. Being the ten year old history buff I was, I always suggested colonial…

Things I've Learned This Year (A Recap of the Best of 2011)

** My son likes to make his penis talk.  (Don't ask.)

** The entire household turns into assholes when my husband goes out of town.

** My kids wait to take a dump until it's time to walk out the door.

** This ass isn't gonna run itself off.

** You can never ever hug your kids too much.

** When life hands you…

If life were vacation, it would look something like this

During the year, when I'm at work, I like to moan and groan about how busy I am. Life would be very different, I say, if only I had more spare time.

Well, I'm on vacation this week. And I think I'm getting a taste of what would happen if I allowed myself to live a totally unstructured life:

1. I would watch a lot of Food Network.

2. I would go to the gym in the morning and then go home and crash into bed.

3. I would eat too much…

Maria's Random Rants - What The !@#$%^& Is Going On Here?

I’m a warrior, a road warrior. Well, among other things. Really. Just hear me out.



Being a family of six limits our options when it comes to travel. Heck, being a family of six limits us financially in several respects, because as you can guess six times any dollar amount usually equals much more than most people can afford.

 

Hence, over the last few years this family has become a band of road warriors, trekking it across…
