10 Things to do at Universal Studios Hollywood with a Toddler

Our oldest daughter is currently obsessed with Harry Potter so planning a visit to Universal Studios Hollywood during our spring break road trip was exciting. She is eight years old and doesn't remember the Wizarding Worlds of Harry Potter during our family visit to Universal Orlando many years ago. We knew she would have fun at Universal Hollywood but were unsure of the activities appropriate for her almost two year old little sister. Our day spent at the park was awesome and we had no problem Read More... {Read More...}

The Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain Tucson, Arizona

While we love our many road trips to Southern California, we also enjoy exploring our home state of Arizona. Tucson is a short drive from the Phoenix metro area and a city we don't explore often enough. Just before summer my husband attended a work conference at The Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain in Marana, Arizona.

It is completely secluded and surrounded by nothing more than Read More... {Read More...}

Koloa Zipline Kauai, Hawaii

Earlier this year when we spent a week at the Hanalei Bay Resort in Kauai, Hawaii, I had no idea my favorite excursion of our Hawaiian vacation would be ziplining with my daughter.

We were staying on the opposite Read More... {Read More...}
