So, late one April evening, I found a deal and booked a one week air and hotel package at a Hyatt resort somewhere between Naples and Fort Meyers.  I justified the trip as a babymoon for #2, who...

Roadtripping with Kids: A Survival Guide

Recently, the Mister and I had the harebrained idea to take our kids roadtripping for a weekend during Spring Break. We based this brilliant decision on years and years of horrible experiences.

My kids have the End-Of-School countdown started and are already celebrating by staging elaborate wars between their assortment of Lego Stormtroopers and Webkinz (score: Webkinz 0, The Empire 682). 

Wanting to steer their energies away from the Dark Side, I spent last night's "me time" looking for more constructive outlets for their fertile imaginations. It's also Earth Day this...
