Traveling Tuesday….packing for the snow!

We have been thinking about packing up the girls and heading to the snow one of these weekends! My husband grew up in the snow and thinks there is nothing more wonderful than waking up to a white wonderland outside. Me on the other hand, I see the white snow and can’t wait to get cozy by the fire with something warm to drink.

However, because my husband loves it and the girls will be absolutely thrilled by it do I think about making the plunge. And of course, being the practical gal that I am all I can think of is the packing lists that I have to make.  I think I might be more excited about making these lists then I should be…

Big Girl
Socks
Boots (Uggs & Rain)
Hats
Scarf
Jackets (heavy & light)
Snow bib
Undershirts
Pants

Sweaters
Long & Short sleeve shirts

Burp Cloth
Baby food and spoon

I don’t think I ever realized how much you would have to pack to get to the snow…that doesn’t even include me and the husband or the snow gear. I am going to keep working on the packing lists. See anything that I am missing?

Traveling Families pt. 1: Researching Family-Friendly Destinations

Most would agree that traveling is one of the great luxuries in life, and also one of the most educational and inspiring activities you can do. It makes perfect sense that you would want to travel and bring your children along for the adventure. Of course, traveling has always been considered more of an adult activity, and many destinations simply aren’t very child-friendly. What is the family with wanderlust to do?

Travel The World (From Your Computer)

It seems impossible to see most of the world. Traveling is expensive, and even if you had unlimited funds to travel, many parts of the world are simply not accessible. And yet, knowing about our world is important. What to do?

Eyjafjallajokull

We have come to England to enjoy Spring Break this year. We have had a really nice time visiting with family and enjoying all that Warwickshire has to offer. We were due to travel home on Saturday but because of the Volcano in Iceland we can first get home on Wednesday…as long as Eyjafjallajokull doesn’t blow again. Still, as everyone keeps saying, its nice that we are with family and not stuck in an airport or a hotel somewhere.

One of the things that has been special about being home with the girls is relearning the history of where I come from. We spent a day at the Herbert Art Gallery in Coventry, where we learned the story of Lady Godiva and Peeping Tom

We’ve had time to enjoy some lovely food.

We learned a little about the Inland Waterways System that runs through England. Hatton Locks

The Girls with Nanny Opening a Lock

We also visited: The Butterfly Farm, The Think Tank, saw Alice in Wonderland IMAX 3D (I highly recommend it – though I have to see it again because I fell asleep during the Mad Hatters Tea Party – jet lag caught up with me!) and Coventry Cathedral

If we can get home on Wednesday, I’m going to start talking to Ronnie about a beach vacation – I’m pooped!
