About Me & My Family
I'm a mother
3 Kids 3-11 years old boys and girls

When we travel, good food and adventure always abound. Our family loves to push the limit of what we can do with children. Our mantra has always been - have kids, will travel. However, this doesn't mean I'm unlike most frantic moms before a trip. Wanting adventure and being a control freak can sometimes be a lethal combination.
Our Family's Travel Personality
adventurous, independent, spontaneous
We Just Got Back From
Massachusetts
Our Favorite Vacation Spot
Hawaii, Montana, Lake Tahoe
A Place We'd Love To Visit
New Zealand, Argentina, Brazil, Eastern Europe, Italy
Favorite Vacation Memory
Climbing Machu Picchu with a 4 month old infant in a slight and having all the locals stop us to ask what happened to his feet which were all bundled up. They just couldn't believe it wouldn't be bow legged.
Worst Travel Moment With My Kids:
Getting to the airport on our way to Scotland with my 15 month old and discovering that my husband's passport had expired. Instead of rebooking all of our flights, we decided that I would do the first leg of our journey on my own with baby. Unfortunately, we had not packed for me to be flying by myself. I could bearly walk to the runway with all my bags and a 15 month old who would get distracted by everything along the way. He then proceeded to sleep only 1 hour of the entire 11 hour journey (red-eye). It was pretty miserable.

Spooky Halloween Adventures for Kids

Not every parent or child feels comfortable with bringing their kids to places where they might feel spooked out by tales of ghosts or the presence of supernatural occurrences.  So, do use your discretion.  If you have a child who is particular sensitive like mine are, it's best to stick with pumpkin festivals this Halloween.

Best for kids ages 7 and up. Special 65 minute Flashlight Tours of the Winchester Mansion are given every Friday the 13th and at Halloween. You'll tour the rambling, mysterious mansion at night with only the moonlight, a souvenir flashlight, and your imagination to provide illumination through the bewildering maze of rooms and stairways.

Suitable for all ages depending on the time of the tour. In October, for Halloween they offer "Terror on the Bayou" http://www.terroronthebayou.com/ The legendary Runaway Fright Train will feature Freaky Fairy Tales – your childhood stories COME ALIVE with a scary twist! The scenes and actors along the track will keep you at the edge of your seat and give you a laugh now and then, too. G and PG-13 runs are oriented to specific age groups. The first run of each night is family-oriented for ages 2 to 92 for howling good fun, while the later runs are geared toward patrons that want the ultimate Halloween experience full of spine-tingling terror.
