Gear Review: Stonz Rain Bootz and Booties

Stonz Rain Bootz The first thing Addison said when we opened her Stonz Rain Bootz was, “Mama, these are the most awesomest boots ever!” I think the color pink won her over, but the comfort and warmth of these boots are what kept her wearing them even during the cold weather of winter. Made with […]

Family Adventure at Ramblewild Aerial Park

These days, it’s not often Kendra and I go on an adventure without our kids. When we told our neighbors we were headed to Ramblewild, an aerial adventure park in Western Massachusetts, they joked that it would be a “marriage building” experience.

Review of Legoland Discovery Center in Boston, MA

Review of LEGOLAND® Discovery Center in Boston, MA

As a kid, I loved LEGOS®. I made houses, towers, cars, mini-cities – anything I could think of in my imagination.

NYPD Deli Patrol

Review: NYPD Deli Patrol All Natural Roasts

When Kendra became pregnant with Addison, she avoided deli meat. In solidarity, I stopped eating Italian subs… in front of her.
