Six Family-Friendly Activities in Greenville, South Carolina

My wife grew up in the upstate of South Carolina, so every time we south to visit her family, we inevitably end up hanging out in Greenville. It’s a charming little city with a beautiful Main Street and an abundance of activities for all ages. While there are tons of family-friendly opportunities, I narrowed it down […]

7 Super Shots – Travel Photos Revisited

At the prompting of fellow blogger Sandra Foyt of Albany Kid, I am taking part in HostelBookers 7 Super Shots. I don’t often follow prompts for my blog posts, but I liked this particular challenge. It gave me the opportunity to dig through my old photos, and highlight a few that I love, yet haven’t […]

Addie in the Lilly Gold Sit 'N' Stroll 5 in 1 Car Seat & Stroller Combination

Gear Review: Lilly Gold Sit ‘n’ Stroll

While we were getting ready for our last trip to Europe, we made tons of lists, especially in regard to what we needed to bring for Addison, our 19 month old daughter. The one thing I was dreading was toting her car seat. It wasn’t an option for us – we needed a car seat […]

London, Day 5: St. Paul’s, the Museum of London, and Camden Town

True story – Addison and I slept in this morning. We were both tired from our long days this week, so while Kendra took the high school kids to see St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Museum of London, Addie and I hit the snooz button. She got up before me, and I let her watch […]

London, Day 4: Tower of London, Thames Cruise, and Greenwich

We slept in late today – 7:30am! After a quick breakfast at the hotel, we all hopped on the Tube and headed for the Tower of London. Built on the site of Roman ruins, and begun in 1066 by William the Conqueror, the structure (also known as Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress) has gone […]

Day Trip from London: Warwick Castle, Stratford-upon-Avon, and Oxford

Today was a whirlwind day! We opted to do a tour with the Golden Tour Company in the UK to visit Warwick Castle, Stratford-upon-Avon, and Oxford because it was fairly cheap, and included lunch. (These are important things to consider when traveling with your inner-city high school students!) We left the hotel at 7am and […]

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 […]

Our hotel room in St. Louis, MO.

Meet me in St. Louis, Louie!

We arrived in St. Louis this afternoon, and went straight to our hotel. Priceline.com came to the rescue once again! For $50 we had an arch view, and we were literally across the street from the monument. We also got vouchers for free coffee from the Starbucks located in the hotel. I was elated. After […]

Our hotel in Nashville, TN

Sometimes it pays to be gay!

Before we left on our road trip, our friend Meg told us about Priceline.com. It’s not that we’d never heard of it before… the commercials are funny, but I tend to not take advice from William Shatner. However, Meg had nothing but good experiences with Priceline, so we decided to give it a try when […]

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 […]
