Mexico is rich with incredible ruins from infamous Mayan civilizations of yesteryear including Chichen Itza; it offers a chance to swim in underground caves and sinkholes under the hot Mexican sun; and of course some of the best rice and beans you'll ever eat!!! But, even so, we loved playing at Xel-Há All Inclusive Park almost just as much...

My birthday falls two days before Christmas. It is on December 23, the eve of Christmas Eve. My mom left the hospital immediately after I was born to come home to take care of her five other kids and create the magical Christmas they expected to have. Growing up, Christmas was always a very enchanting time in our household....
Exploring Waterfalls on a Jeju itinerary
A double bed and a twin bed is just not enough for a family of six. The twins took the floor mat, I took the double with the squirmy baby discovering her fine motor skills and Daddy shared with Eclair. I was up all night. Every time I heard a grunt, or a deep breath, or heard the bed...
Subway in Korea with kids
Korea is one of the most child friendly countries we’ve ever been to. Children are welcomed everywhere and doted on at every opportunity. A trip to Korea with kids means becoming accustomed to restaurant owners grabbing our baby and taking her so we can have a peaceful dinner, strangers asking to take photos of our family while giggling and...

Believe it or not, Iceland wasn’t the last time we went winter swimming. There is something entirely primal about confronting below freezing weather in your skivvies and jumping into a slightly less cold pool. It kick-starts your heart, makes your bones jump and fills your lungs with the breath of a dragon. Swimming is a natural pastime in Iceland,...
Mommy and Me Baby Jjimjilbang
After today, my mouth hurts from smiling too much. I’ve been grinning ear to ear ever since Molasses and I spent our Mommy and Me activity for the afternoon at the Baby Jjimjilbang. Between finding Bingsu, Korean Shaved Ice, yesterday, and the Baby Jjimjilbang today, I could live here quite happily for some time. The only thing missing in...

After seven annual family trips to play at Walt Disney World, we finally made our way to the Disney Water Parks! It was something we’d always wanted to do, but couldn’t quite squeeze in amidst all the theme park fun we were having. The parks opened at 10 am and closed at 5 pm. We figured we could start...
Girls Enjoying the Little Snowie 2 the Best Shaved Ice Machine
The most amazing thing we discovered in South Korea is Bingsu. Now I know I use superlatives a lot, but this time it's 100% worthy. Bingsu is Korean Shaved Ice. No,... it's next level shaved ice and you're about to find out just what that means. Get ready, because this article is going to change your life. We are going to...
Swimming Primary Activity in Korea
We've been looking forward to today for two weeks. Today is the day of the LDS primary activity in Korea where the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints rented an above ground Dough Boy swimming pool! This is one of the best primary activities I've ever been to! It was so well thought out and planned, and...

Disney offers two themed water parks in Orlando, Florida. Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach. Typhoon Lagoon is the wreckage left as a result of a typhoon that swept through Florida dislodging and disarming boats, trees, slides, fishing gear, surfboards and the like leaving them where Mother Nature thought best. We’ll just save you the trouble and tell you right...
