Have you ever wanted to walk into your favorite storybook? Well Story Land gives you that opportunity! I have loved making memories at Story Land ever year with my children. Story Land is packed with fun attractions and rides for kids of all ages, so I have enjoyed taking the kids since they were toddlers.
A trip to the White Mountains is not complete with out seeing the views from the highest peek in the north east at the top of Mount Washington.
There are 3 ways to get to the top of Mount Washington, hike it, drive it, or take The Mount Washington Cog Railway. I can't hike up a hill never mind a 6,288 foot mountain, plus I have three kids in tow so that option went out the window quickly.
Many people drive up the mountain, however I get an anxiety attack driving in town, so windy roads on the side of a mountain didn't sound like a peaceful afternoon. Plus I had nightmares of my brakes failing and my car overheating when I considered it, so driving was a "no-way".
The Cog Railway was exactly what we needed. We pulled up, and parked, got our tickets, then sat back and enjoyed the views throughout the 3 hour guided train tour.

Are you planning a move? We are! We announced to our family last week that we are are moving down to the Tampa area of Florida!
For the past 5 years or so, my husband and I have debated between moving to South Carolina or Florida, and a couple years ago we took a road trip up and down the east coast and all around Florida, trying to decide on where we wanted to transplant to. We ended up staying in Massachusetts because I chickened out at the idea of being away from all my family while the kids were so young. However they have gotten older, and easier, so the move was back on the table. Then my parents made the sudden decision 6 months ago to make their Florida home, their permanent home. Suddenly the idea of moving became easier. My father is home during the day and my mother is working from home so they were able to find us an apartment to transition into and they had already gotten to know the area towns and local establishments.
Plus my brother is only 5 to 6 hours away from Florida in South Carolina, and visits the Tampa area every couple months. We had been taking a long road trip to South Carolina twice a year over the last few years, so being closer to him is a huge perk.

How did summer vacation come so quick? It feels like the kids just had their first day in September yesterday!
While I love the lazy mornings and the beach days, I also worry about how much knowledge my children are loosing during the school break, especially being a special needs family.
After watching the regression of my children in the early school years and feeling helpless, I learned that I need to tap into the subjects they are passionate about and develop a good out-of-school schedule that keeps them engaged and learning in-between those beach days.

Summer is here and for some reason that means triple the laundry load for my family. With the kids home on summer vacation we are all having fun getting dirty, sweaty, and wet, which means outfit changes several times a day.
