Our Last Summer Break Trip – Montshire Museum of Science in Norwich, VT

We did our best to make as many trips this Summer Break as possible, sadly we didn’t make it to our normal spot at York Beach in Maine, but we did venture to the Atlantic Ocean via a State Park in Rye, NH before summer was over. Today, I wanted to take a moment to share with you our trip to the Montshire Museum of Science located in Norwich, VT because that was our final Summer Break trip. We got to meet A T-Rex Named Sue and learn how frogs see us, as well as how dinosaurs saw their world […]

I keep Saying Let’s Rent a Camper

One thing we did not get to do this past Summer that my family has wanted to be able to do is stay a weekend somewhere, preferably camping out so maybe we can have our pug with us. I don’t like the idea of trying to find a place to put Jenny the pug up nor do I have anyone who can house sit the doggy. I know our kitty would be fine, as we can leave him ample water and food, but the dog? Well dogs are not self sufficient in ways of the kitty. With that being said, […]

A Bit of Winter Storm Nemo #nemo #snow #kids

The kids had a fabulous time enjoying the foot of snow slammed on us by Nemo over the weekend.  The little one climbed up the snow bank from the snow plow to slide…. And then smiled as he went down backwards and did a spin to the bottom… The older two boys went outback to take advantage of the backyard hill… Then finally my daughter came outside and since I was the picture taker, there are no pictures for proof that I DID go sliding this year …. It was a blast of a weekend with moments that I had […]

And the Schedule Changes Again

When Summer vacation started I had to go back to working nights, meaning that my thinking cap had to work after a long, busy day with kids rather than at the start of a day leaving me some alone time after kids went to bed. Now it seems with Summer I do not get that alone time as often as I did during the school year but that does not mean I am not having fun. This week Summer school begins for my middle child, so that means a new schedule to get used to. The good news is that […]

#TMOM Twitter Party & Saving Money on Vacation

Every year we head to York Beach in Maine in hopes to find a place to stay close to the ocean. Each year we find that if you don’t book ahead of time then trying to find a motel or hotel to stay in close to the ocean water is quite an impossible feat. This year our family has been saving to try to make sure we can plan ahead and stay at least one night in a motel near York Beach, ME. I know that my children would really like to go to the York Zoo as well and […]

Planning a Trip to Maine For Summertime

My kids really have wanted since last Summer to spend a weekend or at least one night in Maine this Summer so I am hoping to find a great deal on a way to spend some time this Summer with the munchkins in Maine, preferably near York Beach so that we are within walking distance of the beach front. I am hoping to find some great rates to visit Maine in June or July but who knows if I will be able to afford going, and the kids will be so let down. The joys of working from home, you […]
