Addison at Trafalgar Square in London, England.

London, Day 2: Windsor Castle, A Guided Tour, and the Tate Modern!

Today began early with a continental breakfast in the hotel. Nothing fancy, but the croissants were freshly baked! We gathered up the kids and boarded a bus to Windsor Castle, accompanied by our local guide, John. Historically used as the royal residence, this medieval castle has been home to the British monarchy since the reign […]

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 […]

There are over 2,000 arches in the park, spread out among amazing rock formations and desert landscape. Of course, after 3 hours of hiking, even easy […]

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 […]

As we drove out of Mesa Verde today, Kendra caught site of the coolest coffee shop we’ve ever seen! Located in Cortez, Colorado, the Silver Bean is housed in a vintage Airstream trailer.

The Parthenon in Nashville, TN

Welcome to Nashville! … or Greece?

I love oddities and unexpected tourist traps. Take, for instance, the full scale replica of the Parthenon that is in Centennial Park in downtown Nashville. Built for Tennessee’s 1897 Centennial Exposition, the sculptures that adorn the outside were built from plaster casts of the originals. It is an imposing building, though somewhat out of place […]

J.C. Strouble at The Beacon in Spartenburg, SC

The Fates Sent Me a Beacon

It’s not often a post on my Facebook news feed is as applicable to my life as one from NPR the other day. However, yesterday there was a post about food joints that politicians go to when campaigning in South Carolina. It caught my eye because we are actually IN South Carolina at the moment. […]

The Good Day Cafe in North Andover, MA.

The Good Day Cafe – Hooray!

Addison woke us up early today, so Kendra and I decided to take her for a walk to a fairly new café in our neighborhood – The Good Day Cafe. I was psyched to go check the place out, as yesterday Kendra brought me one of their cappuccinos and a yogurt parfait. Given I am […]

Norm’s

For the last couple of years, Kendra and I have been frequenting a little hole in the wall in Methuen – Norm’s White Horse. The first time I drove by it, I thought it was a sketchy place for old men to drink beers and ogle the ladies – there are no windows on the […]

Cafe Verde

Today I met up with Kendra and Addison at a fairly new cafe in Lawrence, MA – Cafe Verde. They were hanging out with our friend Meg, and Meg’s mom. Kendra had already eaten when I got there, but the food looked too good to resist, so I ordered a Croque-Madame sandwich – a grilled […]
