About Me & My Family

I am a mom of 3 wonderful little boys (one with special needs), a beautiful baby girl, and am married to the man of my dreams. I am very interested in incorporating learning into activities that we do, so a trip to the beach turns into a school field trip. Recently, we moved back to California after a brief move to Texas and feel blessed to be able to be involved in all facets of Christian Camping. Because my husband and I serve in full time ministry, we're lucky to be able to spend a lot of time around each other and our family, having exciting adventures and just living life, day by day. :)
Our Family's Travel Personality
adventurous, curious, structured, relaxed, independent, energetic, spontaneous, easy_going, scheduled, artsy
We Just Got Back From
Japan, Lake Tahoe, Camp! (Not on the same trip though) :)
Our Favorite Vacation Spot
Anywhere new where discoveries can be made! We're pretty frugal, so budget traveling is definitely the way we go. However, occationally, we do love to splurge too! :)
A Place We'd Love To Visit
Austrailia to scuba dive the barrier reef, a zero-gravity flight to experience weightlessness, ziplining and exploring a rainforest, exploring the vast glaciers in Alaska, just to name a few!
Favorite Vacation Memory
It's completely simple, but watching our 6 year old get selected to be a Jedi Knight at Disneyland. It's his "lifelong" dream and still today when someone asks him what he's going to be someday, he proudly answers, "A Star Wars Guy!"
Worst Travel Moment With My Kids:
Right after checking into our hotel, my 4 year old threw up in the middle of the floor on the carpet, all over his jammies, his lovey, and on his little brother. Thankfully, the hotel we were staying in had a laundromat that was open late, so a few hours later, and after some carpet scrubbing, everything was cleaned up and like new.

Minneapolis Plunge @ Thomas Beach
Lake Calhoun Thomas Ave. S and W. Calhoun Parkway,
"Polar Plunge Fun!"
You'll freeze your bottom off, but you'll be making great memories and raising money for a very special cause, the Special Olympics! This particular plunge not only offers a plunge into the freezing lake, but also a kiddie plunge into small pools lightly scattered with ice. The kiddie plunge is open for children under the age of 12.

The Garage Eatz
28 Jordan St.,
New York 13152
"Delicious Food and Service"
Garage Eatz is a family-friendly restaurant with gourmet creations as well as the simpler foods, often with a twist. Their pizzas are supposed to be the best and I love that they offer gluten-free options! The menu is kid-friendly too and they have a seperate lunch menu. Be sure to eat here if you're in Skaneateles!

Skaneateles WinterFest & Polar Plunge at Clift Park
West Genesse Street near Jordan Street,
New York
"Beautiful Location, Family Fun!"
The Skaneateles WinterFest and Polar Plunge will be the highlight of your year! Families freeze their bottoms off jumping into chilly water, but the memories and cause is worth it. After the plunge, the WinterFest continues offering scavenger hunts, ice fishing derbies, and good food.

Polar Plunge & Winter Fest- Shepard Park
Canada Street,
Lake George,
New York
"Amazing Winter Family Fun!"
The Polar Plunge kicks off the Lake George Winter Fest which includes a dip into the clean, frigid lake along with hundreds of other people just as crazy. Following the plunge is Winter Fest. Some of the activities from years past include dogsledding, chili cookoffs, outhouse races, an ice slide, sleigh ride, and more!

Shepards Park | kids travel, kids activities
Shepards Park
Canada Street,
Lake George,
New York
"Clean, Free Beach"
This free beach on Lake George is in the heart of the village next to good shopping and restaurants. The restrooms are clean and seasonal activities take place around the stage and pier. We like this beach because of it's central location. It's easy for the kids to burn off some energy and the pathways are wide and safe for them to use too.
