Baby Registry Must Haves

One of the most frequently asked questions I get is “what should I put on my baby registry?” or “what are your must have baby items?” I’ve had 5 babies at this point, 2 at the same time, so it makes sense that this would be a common question as I have definitely had myContinue reading “Baby Registry Must Haves”

8 Brain Benefits to Learning a Second Language

The benefits of learning a second language are plenty. Understanding and learning all the aspects of a language—like phonetics, writing, and speaking—is a hard task for your brain, proving them to be the ultimate brain workout.  Improving your overall brain health is one of the many outcomes of learning a new language. In fact, it’sContinue reading “8 Brain Benefits to Learning a Second Language”

Disney World August 2021

A month late is better than never, right? One of the only farming season vacations we plan in advance is the first week of August. This is the best week of the farming season for us to leave even if it isn’t raining because the crops are getting ready for harvest and requiring less attention.Continue reading “Disney World August 2021”

Orange Beach & New Orleans July 2021

Every year for our annual beach trip we stay somewhere along the gulf coast between Gulf Shores, AL and Panama City Beach, FL. Where we go and stay largely depends on where we have hotel points at that point in time so that we can stay for free! This year instead of going to theContinue reading “Orange Beach & New Orleans July 2021”

Universal Orlando Resort July 2021

Even though we visit Orlando, Florida multiple times a year, I haven’t been to Universal Studios in a long time. We have skipped it for the past several years mainly because our kids just aren’t big enough. Before I go any farther with this post I need to throw that disclaimer out there. Universal OrlandoContinue reading “Universal Orlando Resort July 2021”

Painted Desert & Petrified Forest – June 2021

I’m sorry I’m really late on this post. In all honestly I simply forgot about it. Our visit to the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest in northern Arizona was part of our Sedona & Grand Canyon trip. You can click on each of those links to read about those. The Painted Desert & Petrified ForestContinue reading “Painted Desert & Petrified Forest – June 2021”

The Grand Canyon – June 2021

With international travel being quite cumbersome these days due to covid we have done a lot of domestic travel over the last year. Our most recent spur of the moment trip took us to northern Arizona to visit the Grand Canyon, Painted Desert and Petrified Forest. We chose to stay in the central location ofContinue reading “The Grand Canyon – June 2021”

Uptown Sedona, Arizona June 2021

With the farm work caught up and a week of rain in the forecast one Friday afternoon in June I frantically searched for cheap flights to anywhere for the next morning. I would like to say this doesn’t happen often, but the rumors are true; if it rains, we leave. Due to the nature ofContinue reading “Uptown Sedona, Arizona June 2021”

Disney World February 2021

We had so much going on in February this year I could have sworn I already wrote this post, but here it is late April and apparently I never got around to it. We originally had our yearly February Disney trip planned for the first week of February but we decided to go to HawaiiContinue reading “Disney World February 2021”

Disney’s Aulani Resort- Ko Olina, Oahu, Hawaii

I’ve been wanting to stay at Disney’s Aulani resort in Hawaii for a long time now. We are huge Disney fans and even though we travel to Walt Disney World multiple times a year we’ve never made it out to Aulani. We spent 10 days in Hawaii in February 2021 so I finally got toContinue reading “Disney’s Aulani Resort- Ko Olina, Oahu, Hawaii”
