** Cruise control scares the shit out of me.
** When you travel with kids, it's a trip. When you travel without them, it's a vacation.
** 99.9% of the water at water parks is a combination of urine and ick. Probably.
** Trying to get your kids to sleep at a water park is like trying to get a nun to pole…Continue

Dear readers, I'm back! I've just returned from a fantastic vacation to California to visit my family. It was quite the adventure getting there because it was D2's first plane ride. To say I was nervous about travelling across the country on my own with a toddler is an understatement. At almost 20 months, D2 is very active and loathes sitting in his car seat for more than a…Continue

Vacation = Relaxation? I'm not so sure. We have been home from vacation for 5 days, and I still don't feel "caught up". I am really tired, still haven't put all of our laundry away, and haven't fixed my hair since we returned home. I am however, soooo happy to be home! It is always nice to get away, but by the end of vacation, I am always excited to return to the comfort of my own home, and ready to eat home cooked meals. This year, we headed to Myrtle Beach for a week. We had an…Continue

The house is still. The only noise I hear is the hum of the refrigerator. I’m basking in the quiet and trying to make it last as long as I can. Because…today is the last day of school. A day I’ve been dreading more than a gynecological visit or a root canal.

Are you planning on traveling with your pets this summer? You may want to check out the Blanket Online ID for your feline or canine. The British Columbia based company uses the web to facilitate getting a lost pet home, no matter where they are in North America.

I am an average American when it comes to travelling. I have been to Europe a couple of times, and to Canada and Mexico. I would love to travel more, but with a child just out of a car seat, travelling has been somewhat limited.

The children have been out of school one day - yes, one day - and I can already feel my sanity slipping away. I'll miss it.
My daughter is already using the time off to ask a few questions, like: When can she get her own computer? Why is her brother being so annoying? Why can't she have a kitten? Or a puppy? And what does Santa have to do with Jesus, and what is the significance of a Christmas tree?
My son doesn't have any questions. He's an entertainer! Ta da!!! So…Continue

Sometimes in the middle of our deployments, we are allowed a few days off. It helps troops refresh themselves mentally, physically and emotionally. It's an essential priviledge that is intended to help our people maintain their sanity so that they can maintain focus on the mission. It is an awesome treat!

Travelling of any sort is always a crap shoot for me. Aside from the logistics of 4 kidlets, (although, with everyone out of “babyhood”, I have finally become adept enough at packing that I can leave behind the kitchen sink!), the Griswold moniker is well earned…I seem to encounter “adventures” that fall outside of the typical. Moreover, MY typical usually falls within…Continue
