New England Dining – The Creek House Diner in Bethel, VT

The Creek House Diner in Bethel Vt Happily Blended Travel Dining

Driving along during one of our kid-free weekend road trips, the hunger meter went low and it was time to find us some food. Having a specific food budget and not quite sure what we felt like eating, I figured the perfect idea while in the middle of nowhere Vermont would be a quaint diner. Then it appeared, we saw The Creek House Diner. Settled on the corner of a stop sign area, we noticed it looked possibly empty. Not having ample cell service, we could search the diner but not find a whole lot about it We decided to […]

“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Jif To Go Dippers. I received a sample to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating. I am so excited to be promoting this photo promotion today, because, well, I love being active as a family. Like I really have a choice, right?

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.

We got to meet A T-Rex Named Sue and learn how frogs see us, as well as how dinosaurs saw their world […]

Yes, This is my Child … Mister K

This child of mine, the youngest, is always up to something. Shown here, is my son after a ride home from his Grampa’s. Some how between stealing my pocket book to take all of my Trident gum and singing along to our favorite tunes on the radio for our twenty minute trip back home … he captured a pink highlighter. This highlighter is what he added to his already messy, chocolate ice cream face … Imagine my surprise when we pulled into the driveway to our house and I look to see him like this? I just couldn’t help but […]

I Won’t Let Them Suffer for Any of my Insecurities #motherhood

It was that time of day, my 9am to 11am shift at Moms.com was over, it was a sunny, warm Thursday morning and the boys had been so patient, entertaining themselves while I worked for two hours within the same room as them. I knew I had to do something, but we have been to the family pool nearly every day this Summer, I didn’t want to pack up and drive over to Vermont, I wanted something different today. The boys deserved to go out and have fun, because four week days this Summer they will have to endure me […]

Yes, These Kids Have Already Been in the Pool #NH #VT

These kids of mine have already ventured into the pool at my Dad’s home in Vermont. Yes. They did. The pool was about 70 degrees. Of course, me being the parent I am, told them only dip your feet. Seriously, what was I thinking? Dip your feet means get in the water up to your chest, which turned into my Dad saying to me, “what are you talking about? If they can put their feet in then they can get in!” Leave it to Dad … so in they went. So the kids… decided to listen to Grampa because Mom […]

Ski Wear Through the Ages

Fashion and Snow. Not the most conventional of partnerships to say the least. In fact if you tried trekking through the alpine tundra in any of the catwalk outfits nowadays you would be in for a rough time. But I’m being silly. The fact is that modern ski apparel is actually quite fashionable! From what started as an essential piece of uniform to simply keep you warm and dry, skiers and snowboarders heading up the peak this year will have a seemingly unending choice of jackets, boots, coats, hats etc. In fact it’s a lucrative business! The Ski Industry rose […]

What type of Musical Instruments Are Best?

I have a household full of music lovers, while I have mostly guitar and drum loving men and boys in the household, I do have some piano and keyboard lovers as well. Kiara has spoken to me in the past about how neat it would be to have piano lessons, while I agree that would be cool, I honestly do not think I can afford it nor am I sure she is interested in piano any longer. When Kiara started thinking about the piano it brought back memories of my really young years of living in the farm house with […]
