Taking the boys to New York was an adventure. If I had to further categorize it, I’d label it a comedy. Mac had recently watched the Christmas movie, Elf, so he spent the majority of his time reenacting scenes from the movie. I can’t count how many crosswalks he hopped across or escalators he tried […]
We drove to Chicagoland last Thanksgiving and purposely booked hotels in cities with Children’s hospitals. We left for Pawleys Island last month and I got this email from my husband. So yeah we’re a little bit skittish. Or should I call it prepared? After last year’s unexpected trip to the ER on the drive home from […]

Yesterday we went to Pawleys Island. The literal island of Pawleys. This whole area where Mom and Dad live is called Pawleys Island but the island itself is only a couple miles long and every square foot is practically covered with old beach vacation homes. Nothing else. Plantation owners used to spend the summers on […]
