When we got wind that FAO Schwarz was closing its flagship store overlooking 5th Avenue in New York City, we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to take our children to play on the oversized piano keys overlooking Manhattan. There is nothing quite so iconic as playing without limits in the ultimate toy store in the largest city in...

While touring the Kuranda rainforest in Cairns, Australia (post coming soon) we had our first encounter with the DUKW. This is an amphibious vehicle that puts the all terrain, in all terrain. DUKW is not an acronym, like you might think, it’s actually the manufacturer's factory serial letters. This bad boy can cover any swath of land you throw...

Advertisements for Moab Giants are plastered all over the town of Moab. It’s an all out advertising war between the two rivals Moab Giants and Hole in the Rock, as if Arches National Monument is just a sideshow. Moab Giants can be seen from the main drive along the highway and looks compelling enough with giant dinosaurs roaming the...

Across the street from the Granary Burying Ground is Beantown Pub. For some reason, a joke we heard about the pub runs through my head everytime I think about this site: “This is the only place you can get a cold Sam Adams while looking at the cold Sam Adams.” I don’t know that it’s particularly funny, but it’s...
Arches National Park, Utah, Delicate Arch, Diapersonaplane, Diapers On A Plane, Traveling with Kids, Family Travel
Arches National Park is an incredible natural wonderland full of more than 2,000 natural made arches. The arches are formed from differing types of sandstone rock, created as a result of cracks weakened by weather and erosion slowly crumbling away until only the strongest rock layers remain. This place looks like God reached his hand down to Earth and...

When we stepped out of the Subway station into Harvard Square, a giant yellow and red banner immediately caught our eye. Man in a yellow hat, red book cover, brown monkey? We had just stumbled upon The World’s Only Curious George Toy Store! Located on a corner lot, this unique building was as fun on the outside as it...

We unequivocally fell in love with Boston, Massachusetts. This is a city that honors and celebrates its revolutionary past, onward looking towards the future, and respects all those who come to bear witness of what was created here. The Italians in the North End, the Irish in the Back Bay and the American’s have all come together to shed...

Neither Boston nor Salem, are lacking in the old cemeteries department. Both cities have numerous burial grounds for key players in the early colonial era and American revolution. The tombstones are thin, frail and lean with the wind, they are difficult to read and have unique puritan etchings on them. They are fascinating and remarkable and contain a sense...
