YMCA of the Rockies
For the last weekend in October this year, we had the pleasure of spending it at the YMCA of the Rockies for the Halloween Spooktacular event! I had been eyeing this property for some time now on our trips to Estes Park, as not only is it in a picturesque mountain setting, but it radiates […]
Camping with Kids
I love being outdoors with the family, from hiking to skiing to boating, anything outdoors is my happy place! I’ve always wanted to go camping with our kids, but I wanted to wait until Easton was a little older to help make the process somewhat smoother. Now that he is three and we have the […]
Telluride with kids
For our last ski trip of 2018, we spent about 5 days in Telluride, Colorado. I have never been to Telluride before, but seeing it pop up on list after list for best places to ski, I knew we had to try it. Not only is it a great ski resort with awesome runs and […]
One our 6 month road trip we were lucky enough to ski at three different mountains in Colorado with the kids. While each one had its own charm and beauty, Keystone Resort became a favorite for their focus on family friendly activities, amenities & fun! I equate Keystone Resort to the Disney World of ski […]
Keystone Colorado
Keystone Resort is the clear front runner when it comes to a family ski destination, and I feel so lucky we got to experience their focus on families first hand! With incredible ski instructors, a legit snow fort and an endless amount of family activities, its easy to see why this place attracts families from […]
Keystone Colorado
This past spring, we spent an entire month on the slopes in Colorado skiing our hearts out. While you want your kids to be comfortable and warm on the slopes, I do not want to spend a fortune either because lets face it, they grow like weeds so it will probably only last them one […]
Denver City Park
Our second stop on this 6 month road trip we are taking is Denver, Colorado and I couldn’t be more excited! Colorado has a special place in my heart (we love to ski and we love the mountains) but we normally skip over Denver to head straight for the slopes. So this time around, I […]
To me, the most stressful part of any trip for with my family is not the planning, flying or budgeting…it is the packing! With all of today’s fees on bringing large/heavy/extra luggage, I try to pack as light as possible, while making sure not to forget anything! Lists help, but I hold my breath for […]

Mother nature at it’s finest is how I would describe Rocky Mountain National Park. It took my breath away with its pure beauty, enchanted me with its majestic peaks and I couldn’t help but just stare, and repeat, “Is this real?!” We spent 2 days in the park, and I am craving for more already! We went […]
