Happy Easter

This caught my heart today while perusing my new favorite site.
I have, like many others I'm sure, stumbled upon pinterest.com.  I spend too much of my free time looking through the amazing images others have pinned.  I have not setup my own account because, honestly, I think I would pin everything!  What a great site and concept!  Go check it out.

Sydney to NYC

I have family visiting the USA soon and we plan to meet up with them in NYC.  They are coming all the way from beautiful Sydney Australia! It has been a few years since we have seen each other and we have both added little ones to our families.  
Although my husband and I have visited New York many times, this will be the first with kids.  I am both excited and nervous for the trip.  We plan to focus on things we've never seen or done.  It should be an easy list since it will focus around the kids. 
One day we will walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and spend time in Brooklyn. I can't believe we've never done this!
I know Babyccino Kids has a great guide for families. Any other great sites?

If you have any tips or ideas of activities for small kids, I'd love to hear.

Summer Vacation

I know Spring has only begun but I can't help myself from dreaming of Summer.  Last year we took our first vacation as a family of four and had so much fun we are going to the same place again this year!
You may recognize this house from a little show a while back starring Jim Carey.


The Truman Show was filmed in Seaside, Florida and this quaint town couldn't be more perfect.  If you haven't been, I would highly recommend visiting.  It is laid back and family friendly.  Everyone rides bikes or walks and they have so many activities (besides the beach) including movie nights, live music in the grassy center of town, even a farmers market and story times for kids.  I could go on...

We simply loved it and can't wait to return. 
We rented our house through this site
