About Me & My Family

I'm mom to a hilarious (I'm talking comedian-in-the-making) 5 year old and a cancer-surviving superhero 7-going on 27-year old. After our daughter's battle with an aggressive form of leukemia (AML), we decided to make the most of every minute. Our family's motto: Until further notice, celebrate everything! This means lots of trips. We try to incorporate educational experiences as much as possible, but our ultimate goal is to celebrate life and celebrate family!
Our Family's Travel Personality
adventurous, curious, rowdy, independent, energetic, spontaneous, easy_going, artsy
We Just Got Back From
the museum (any museum!)
Our Favorite Vacation Spot
do we have to pick just one? The Mountains!
A Place We'd Love To Visit
Hong Kong and mainland China
Favorite Vacation Memory
My daughter's Make-a-Wish trip... every minute of it. It coincided with her 4th birthday. We went to Disney World. Her bright smile lit up the park!
Worst Travel Moment With My Kids:
Within an hour of arriving at our Villa at Disney, my very excited daughter started jumping on the bed. She fell face first on to the ground and her nose bled everywhere. Fortunately she recovered within a few minutes and was ready to head to the parks!

For your photo:

Wow, that’s a fabulous photo! It’s not the camera, it’s your mad skills.

Inspiring You're inspiring 05/12/11
I’m inspired! I read your post on traveling after pediatric cancer and was very much inspired.  I have a daughter who had a heart transplant at four months old and I feel like I'm living with her on borrowed time and want to make the most of it.  Your story is a reminder of how much that time means to the kids, but also to us as parents!  So, thanks!

For your review of: Boylan Bridge Brewpub
Great review of Boylan Brewpub!  We had a few errors in the system recently, so I went through and made sure that the reviews were fixed (including this one) and appear properly in the system.  Thanks for contributing to the community.

Thanks Thank you 03/07/11
I just finished looking over your reviews for welcome rewards.  I was impressed how well you pointed our the kind of details parents care about. Thanks for sharing about all the fun places you've been to with your kids. I'll be ordering your gift card this week, so look out for it in your email.

We enjoyed your reviews so much that the Superoo Council has nominated you for Superoo 2011.
