Salem, Massachusetts, Tales & Tombstones, Haunted Trolley Ride, creating family memories, family travel, traveling with kids,
Salem, Massachusetts didn’t prove to be quite what we expected. During our trip to Boston, we carved out a day to spend touring the most iconic Halloween destination in America.

There are plenty of things Bostonian’s do different than the rest of the world. They pronounce o as aw, and ah as aw, and ar as aw; they seem to really prefer the aw sound. When stop lights turn green, they ‘bang a left’, instead of giving the folks going straight the right of way. They call soda pop,...

What happens when the highest paid actor in the world, worth $225 million dollars, who typically plays roles as America’s hero, none other than Mark Wahlberg, serves your kid raw chicken at his mediocre restaurant at Boston Logan International Airport, BOS? He doesn’t give you a refund, that’s what. That extra $30 is going to bump him off the...

My very first job, at 16 years old, was at See’s Candies in Portland, Oregon at the Lloyd Center Mall. I loved it so much I transferred to the store in Orem, Utah during college, and when Gabriel and I were married came back to my job at Lloyd Center. Eating bon bons all day? That's the life. Especially,...

It was on our Duck Tour that I first spotted the Cookie Monstah food truck in Boston Commons, and I knew I just had to have it. The clever moniker for a name, the idea of freshly baked cookies, imagining the Cookie Monster devouring cookies after his own name; these reasons all topped the list of why I convinced...
