Visiting NYC: American Museum Of Natural History

Taking the kids out of school to travel is always something I stand behind because they will always learn more from what they see than what they hear about. In October my son accompanied me on a work trip to the Big Apple and one of the things I was excited to do with him was show him some of the city’s incredible museums. We are a huge fan of the Night At The Museum movie franchise so stopping by the American Museum Of Natural History was tops on our list.

Vlogging in NYC!

Even though we often do video, we don’t ‘vlog’. This week while I was in New York City with my son he asked me if we could vlog the trip. He loves watching some of the Youtubers that document their daily life and wanted to me to create a video of his day. We had a lot planned so I agreed as a memento of his first trip to the big apple!

Multi-Generational Travel ~ 10 Reasons To Take Gramma & Grampa To Beaches!

For as long as I can remember our family has travelled together. Through countless camping trips, cruises and day trips, there have always been aunts and uncles, friends and grandparents with us to experience each adventure as a team.

Daytripping in Detroit At The Henry Ford Museum

One of my favorite things about Summer is that I’m able to take the kids on day trips. Once a year we’ll do a big amusement park, but, for me, I love taking them to museums.

Just 3 and a half hours from our house, Detroit, and some of it’s subdivisions, has some really great attractions for families. One of the most popular destinations in the area, the Ford campus incorporates 5 attractions including Greenfield Village, the IMAX Theater, Henry Ford Rouge Factory Tour and the Benson Ford Research Center.
