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. Once Addie was born, we started paying a lot more attention to what we were putting in our bodies, and hers. We did our best to buy locally grown, organic produce and dairy products, […]

Ringing in 2014: Outdoor Fun in New Hampshire

When it comes to New Year’s Eve, Kendra and I prefer quiet celebration, so when our friends Meg and Marcy invited us to spend the holiday in a cottage in the woods of New Hampshire’s White Mountain National Forest, we jumped at the opportunity. Meg booked us two cabins at Sunnybrook Cottages, a small, family […]

Mommy, Addie, and Mama in the Hammond reservation in Andover, MA

Goodbye 2012, Hello 2013!

2012 was an exciting year for us. We took Addie overseas for the first time in February, along with 18 of our inner-city students, spending time in both London and Paris. The highlights of our trip were Warwick Castle, the Tower of London, and the Louvre. Addie proved to be a great world-traveler, and in addition […]

Addie watching the chef prepare food at Bollywood Grill.

Adventures In Dining Out With A Toddler

Tonight Kendra and I decided we were in the mood for Indian food. When I lived in Boston, good Indian food could be found in every neighborhood. Out in the burbs, it’s not as easy to find. Undeterred, we bundled up Addie, and headed to Bollywood Grill. Addie has had Indian leftovers before, and loved […]

Rafal's interview at Babylon in Lowell, MA

Hard Truth, Levity, and Hope – Refugees in Lowell, MA

I grew up in an inner-city north of Boston. Though it had been a booming mill town during the Industrial Revolution, my hometown went through hard times when jobs went south, and then overseas. Over the years, it has been reborn several times, first as a hotbed of technology with Wang Laboratories at the heart […]

Addie getting a bath in the hotel sink in Moab, UT.

And then we were a wolfpack of four…

We had a slow start yesterday morning – Addison had an early morning poo-plosion. I won’t got into the details – I think the name is descriptive enough. Anyway, it resulted in a hotel sink bath, and a later departure time than we anticipated. Despite this, we made it to Carbondale, CO by 2:30pm, and […]

Buck's of Woodside in CA.

Redwood City and a Wedding!

Kendra decided we should go out to eat for breakfast this morning, so Jen took us to Buck’s of Woodside. Located in an unassuming cluster of shops, the interior was completely unexpected. Nostalgia lined the walls and ceiling. The food was excellent – Kendra and Jen (that looks weird when I am not the Jen […]

The Peddler's old smoker

The Peddler

Tonight Boris sent us on a date to The Peddler Steak House, “Greenville’s most unique dining experience since 1969.” I can’t even remember the last time Kendra and I went out to dinner, just the two of us. The building, a 100 year-old stone and wood construction, was beautiful. It reminded me a bit of […]

Avignon, Nice & Monaco!

We got on the road early this morning, with our first stop at Avignon.  The sun finally came out as we toured the Palais des Papes (Palace of the Popes) where seven Popes served during the 14th and 15th centuries. The palace was incredible, and we even climbed to the top of the wall for […]
