Cami's Cupcakes, Cami's Creamery, Banana Pudding Ice Cream, traveling with kids, family travel, diapers on a plane
That’s right. We said not! Not good to eat. I mean, I don’t get it. Paula Deen, the Butter Queen herself, is from none other than the sweet state of Georgia and yet we had the hardest time finding a decent bakery in all of Atlanta. And we tried! We struck out four out of five times! If there...
Stilesboro Biscuits, Best southern breakfast in atlanta, biscuits and gravy, traveling with kids, family travel
Gabriel’s favorite breakfast is biscuits and gravy, and honestly, it took me all of 16 years of our marriage to get it right for him. It was either too salty, or the wrong kind of sausage, or the biscuit wasn’t puffy enough, or I cooked the egg incorrectly. Not typically so hard to please, Gabriel turns into an absolute...
The Varsity with Kids, Atlanta Georgia, Hot Dogs, Fast Food, Let them eat hot dogs, chili, traveling with kids, family travel,
One does not simply go to Atlanta and skip the Varsity. The Varsity is an icon, a celebration, a landmark and an institution. It also serves up some boiled hot dogs, chili and their trademark orange drink to boot. And while maybe that might not sound like much, the Varsity is Atlanta defined. For as long as Gabriel can...
Lego Discovery Center, Atlanta, Georgia, Legos, Kids, Family Travel, Traveling with Kids
Here’s a little bit of worldschooling word math for you. A family of 6 goes go The Lego Discovery Center and pays $22.95 each; and that’s with the discount. The baby is free. The experience is worth an approximate $10 value per child at best, and Mom and Dad should be free to sit around and wait for the...
The Wave Hotel, Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico, Vieques, Traveling with Kids, Family Travel
Nowhere did we see the destruction of Hurricane Maria so prominent than on the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico. Our family visited the island 15 months after Hurricane Maria attacked the Caribbean in September of 2017. We stayed in Isabel Segunda near the ferry dock at The Wave Hotel. These days the hotel doesn’t look like much, but it...
Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort, family hotel, orlando, florida, walt disney world, vacation, traveling with kids
As a family who has taken annual vacations to Walt Disney World for the past decade, this weekend I actually asked myself: "Why go to Walt Disney World when I can just stay at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Hotel in Orlando, Florida?" The Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort is the vacation. It’s worth repeating: The Hyatt Regency Grand...
Every time we eat at the Whispering Canyon Cafe the shenanigans get better and better. This themed restaurant is set in the backwoods of Splash Mountain where dinner is cooked in skillets, drinks are served in mason jars, and the food never stops coming. Including the bottomless milkshakes! ► Ranking: #cleandiaper Whispering Canyon Cafe (TS) 901 Timberline Dr Orlando, FL 32830 Walt Disney...
Erin McKenna's Bakery NYC, Disney Springs, Orlando, Florida, Gluten Free Bakery, traveling with kids, family travel
We were so excited to find this dairy free, egg free, gluten free, soy free and certified kosher bakery at Disney Springs. Even though our family doesn't have any of these specific allergies as a life threatening condition, most of the above allergens are allergenic due to the fact that they are loaded with glyphosate residue from pesticide and...
Aerophile Balloon Ride Disney Springs, Hot Air Balloon, Orlando, Florida, Groupon Aerophile, creating family memories, traveling with kids
A huge bucket list item for the Diapers on a Plane Family is taking a hot air balloon ride. We love watching the balloons get filled with helium in the early brisk mornings during the Freedom Days festival in our local town, and then look on in awe as hundreds of balloons take to the skies in succession. Someday...
Hyatt House Orlando Universal, Family Hotel, Family Hotel with Kitchen, family travel, traveling with kids, diapers on a plane
And I thought I loved Hyatt Place hotels! On our last trip to Orlando we switched up category hotels and opted for the Hyatt House instead of the Hyatt Place. In fact we booked the brand new Hyatt House Orlando Universal Studios located directly across the street from Universal Studios - and this just may be my new favorite...
