Around Fort William, Scotland

You are going to think we are totally crazy when we tell you that even with our train obsessed kids we bypassed the Jacobite Steam Train. The Jacobite Steam Train, which was featured in the Harry Potter films as the Hogwarts Express runs out of Fort William. The trip is several hours long though and we knew […]

Isle of Skye, Scotland

Every time I told someone we were going to drive around Scotland they asked if we were headed to the Isle of Skye. I figured that meant it was a must see. Sure enough, everyone was right! We stayed in Portree at the Isles Inn. The Inn is also the most popular pub in town […]

Archeon Park, Netherlands // Photo Diary

This weekend, sticking to our theme of local exploration for this pregnant lady, we decided to check out the Archeon Viking Festival held at the Archeon living history museum. The museum is part of the Museumkaart program and only a thirty-minute drive from Delft. The weather was absolutely perfect for an outdoor adventure. There is plenty of […]

We Bought A Boat

Yep. My husband came home with an inflatable boat to take out into the canals with the boys. Since we arrived in the Netherlands he has wanted a boat. “When you live below sea level you should have a boat” he always says. The past year he has been hoping to find a little one […]

We were honestly not very prepared for the trip. I had the park on my list of “places to take the kids” and we knew that using […]

Perhaps this is why Disney chose it as a model for Frozen’s Arendelle. We were glad that the bulk of our Norway days were spent here […]

Oslo, Norway with Kids

We arrived Oslo via the Bergen Railway into Oslo’s Central Station, which is quite large. The iPhone’s GPS was quite confused in the station, so we went out the exit toward the city but the phone quickly knew where we were. We decided to make the mile walk down Karl Johans Gate to our hotel. […]

Berlin in Lovely Weather, with Kids

Berlin is an amazing city to visit and should top your European list. I’m typically not a city person. Although European cities are packed full of museums and culture, I prefer exploring the countryside and small towns. Berlin though, is so packed with history and yet completely new as it rebuilds from its Soviet era […]

Copenhagen with Kids

Copenhagen is an approachable city that offers tons of tun and nearby day trips. It is not as family friendly as some of the other parts of Denmark, but is worth a visit. We found a perfectly quirky Airbnb to rent in the heart of Copenhagen. The location was to die for, the place perfectly […]
