This trip was entirely different than our 2015 Ireland excursion. We had more stuff and the same amount of hands – not to mention we were locked in our room most nights by 7 PM, didn’t get to hear any music in the evenings at pubs and I only had 4 beers the whole time.… Continue reading Ireland: Planning and Packing
Our trip to Ireland was beautiful, fun, exciting and exhausting all at the same time! As I mentioned in our New York post, we realized very quickly just how much we rely on our parents, daycare and our babysitter to help with our toddler.

First, prepare for your plans to be derailed! Being “on time” with a baby is tough. I… Continue reading Tips for Traveling with a Baby
Last weekend, we decided to take a daytrip to Saxapahaw, NC. There was a holiday market happening and we thought we might find some unique gifts and/or our annual ornament that we collect. The town is only 20 miles away but we took back roads so it took us 35-40 minutes to get there. And… Continue reading Saturday in Saxapahaw
