A Mother-Daughter Weekend Adventure in San Francisco

Talk about an epic weekend! Hi everyone. It’s Brooke. I just got back from the most incredible weekend in San Francisco and want to share our adventures with you. I’m not saying we hit everything on our list because we didn’t come close, but we certainly tried to get as much in as possible.

A Fantastic Fall Weekend in Door County, Wisconsin–The Perfect Family Getaway

This past weekend we headed up to Door County, Wisconsin for our very first time.  For years, I’ve heard colleagues and friends talk about how wonderful Door County is, and I honestly never had it on my radar until recently. Spending a good portion of this past summer in Michigan, it was only respectful to give Wisconsin a fair shake, so I began asking around, researching and crafting a weekend itinerary that turned out to be more than we could have ever hoped for!

A “Beyond Expectations” Weekend Getaway in Indianapolis

This weekend, Brooke had a competition in Indianapolis.  Parents were given the option of attending, and asking me to go away for a weekend is the no brainer of all no brainers.   I had absolutely no expectations, but was happy to enjoy a weekend with my daughter and experiencing a new city.

A Perfect Niagara Falls Weekend-Twice!

I can’t believe my mom has waited this long to venture to Niagara Falls.  She hasn’t  visited the falls since she was a child and was just as excited as I was to head there this July.  It was basically the midway point traveling to visit family on the East Coast.

Mega Fun at Mega Caverns

Hi All, It’s Brooke!

I am beyond excited to tell you about an epic experience that I had on our drive home from Nashville.  We made a pit stop at Mega Caverns in Louisville Kentucky.  My mom didn’t tell me much about it, and honestly when we pulled up, I was confused.  I knew we were going ziplining, so my eyes were fixed on the treetops.  Boy, was I definitely looking in the wrong direction!

At Mega Caverns, you will be ziplining in dark caves a hundred feet beneath the earth’s surface! I didn’t even realize this was a thing and it is apparently the only one in the entire world! How cool is that?!

Our Fourth of July Weekend at Nashville’s Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center

If you have the opportunity to visit Nashville, there really is only one resort to choose for your stay–Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center . On our last spring break roadtrip to Florida, we stayed here as our midway point and knew we would be returning soon, as this resort is too magnificent to only visit once.
