NYC MARATHON 2016

FINALLY! It’s over. The long-hard days of training in the scorching sun, sometimes blistering cold and taking away from the family has come to an end. On my boyfriend’s 30th year of life his mission was to complete as many half marathons and half-mararthons; 10 road races, countless half-marathons and 2 track events. It’s been rough on everyone. With each accomplished race it was a overwhelming feeling of new life.…

Reapers Revenge and Roba Family Farms

October comes around and although I’m not in love with the soon to be really cold weather I do enjoy some of the activities that happen during October– Halloween and pumpkin picking! As a kid I could care less about Halloween and definitely never went to a haunted attraction because I didn;t want to die of a heart-attack, until I went to Dorney Park and their Fright Fest night, where…

Where to Eat While Traveling to Chicago

Where to Eat While Traveling to Chicago As I said last week on y latest post of “Things to do When in Chicago,” I promised I’d also share the places we ate while visiting. I’m not an official food blogger, but we’ve eaten out so many times and given you our reviews time and time again, I’m just going to lightly take that title. Alright, from breakfast to dinners, hotdogs…

Things to Do in Chicago

We made it to Chicago! Our trip to Chicago was about a year in planning all because of my spouse and his love for running. Last year, he committed to take his running serious again and two of his goals were to run the Chicago marathon and the New York City marathon. We started to plan our trip/vacation from looking at hotels, what to visit and where to eat. When…

Family Travel: Washington DC Part 3 of 3

Finally our last and final day in Washington DC, I hope by now you’ve stayed up to date with post 1 and post 2. The last day was bitter sweet– we had spent two great nights all together and roaming the streets of DC. Due to the small amount of times we spent there we didn’t get to visit all the museums. There was one museum which we were suppose…

Family Travel: Washington DC

**Worked with Embassy Hilton and Newseum for hotel stay and comp tickets** When I was a kid my parents took me on many vacations, one of them was visiting Washington DC and I’ll be honest I didn’t care much for it. What kid is really going to be all into visiting museums? It’s not until you get older and wiser that you appreciate museums and all of history’s past. We’ve…

Annual Pennsylvania Fair

It’s the most wonderful time of the year– in summer– fairs and carnivals! You must already know every year we do our annual trip to Pennsylvania specifically to surround ourselves in everything that makes us feel young again, the Wayne County Fair. I never bother going to the fairs out here in New York because it’s ridiculously over-priced for not many rides at all. At Wayne County Fair you pay…

Why Dorney Park Just Isn’t The Same

Every year we make our way to a water park which is child appropriate or at least has a section for the kiddies. We always head to Sesame Place because not only do kids have fun– the parents do too! Plenty to do, the whole park is for kids, there are rides that parents can even have fun on, people are friendly, people know directions and so on. Never had…

Gone Fishing: Hempstead State Park

Growing up in Long Island there’s not much I did, I just looked at it like an island that was far away from the city lights and all the action-packed fun. And even when I made my way to New York City I still never really saw what it had to offer. Living where you grow up you take advantage it and don’t experience all the gems that are hidden.…

Birthday Ideas for Your Toddler

Two weeks ago we celebrated Ziana’s birthday for four days! Yes, four long, yet fun-filled days and they were all in our backyard of Queens. We really had nothing major planned for her birthday except the AQUARIUM which I spoke about on a prior post, but other from that it was all wholesome activities that didn’t have to cost hundreds of dollars. Now a little secret not many fellow New…
