Last week we took a trip to Niagara Falls for a couple of days – the kids had never been and the husband had a business trip so it was the right time to go. The kids were super excited (to miss school) and stay in a hotel, which they LOVE to do. As with [...]

It just happened to be FREEZING that afternoon, but the kids weren’t phased one bit. Mommy was grumpy, but no one [...]
