Battleship New Jersey – Field Trip Friday

January 28th, 2011

For today’s Field Trip Friday, we’ll review the Battleship New Jersey. This past New Year’s Eve the Battleship offered a special promotion, fireworks and a tour. Better yet, they were offering fireworks at 6 pm. We could take the boys out for a fun evening and still get them home for their regular bedtime. We…

Adventure Aquarium

December 9th, 2010

The boys and I recently took advantage of a school holiday to visit with the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ. It had been quite some time since we were last there so we were excited to be returning. Even better we were going with some of our best friends too. It was a field trip…

Garden State Parkway – Exit by Exit Challenge

December 7th, 2010

Growing up in Jersey, you can’t help but hear the question, “What exit…?” Make new friends in college who are also from Jersey, one of the first questions you’ll get is what exit are you? It’s the same when you are an adult and you talk to other Jerseyans. We all seem to relate to…

The Brigantine Playroom

The Playroom – Brigantine’s Best Kept Secret

November 23rd, 2010

Tucked away in a little building, at the corner of Brigantine Avenue and 15th Street South, is Brigantine’s best kept secret for families. It is the Playroom. The Playroom is an indoor playground for children up to age 5. But perhaps it’s better than most playgrounds. At the Brigantine Playroom, your child never has to…

Playing in the Snow with my boy at the Tropicana

November 12th, 2010

Every once in a while I like to take my boys out individually on a “Date with Mommy”. They really enjoy it and the memory leaves them beaming for days. Earlier yesterday, I read about Tropicana Hotel and Casino starting their Holiday Spectacular with the tree lighting ceremony at 1:30 pm. Pictures with Santa were…

Giggleberry Fair – Cliff Notes Version

September 8th, 2010

:D So if you haven’t noticed, I love to talk or in the case of blogging, write. My latest post about Giggleberry Fair was a bit long. Here I offer you the Cliff Notes version and why Giggleberry Fair is a trip worth taking with your family. My boys and I recently were invited to participate…

Giggling it up at Giggleberry Fair

August 27th, 2010

Field Trip Fridays – Giggleberry Fair, Peddler’s Village My boys and I recently were invited to participate in a Blogger’s event at Peddler’s Village. I am not sure what excited us more the opportunity to view the beautiful grounds of Peddler’s Village or the chance to climb mountains, play, and giggle together at Giggleberry Fair….

Field Trip Fridays – Safety First

May 14th, 2010

While I’m already to release to you my first Field Trip blog, I figured I better STOP and wait. First things first. Safety should always be your first consideration before heading out the door on any adventure.   I admit I am the over-paranoid mom of three young boys. I see all those horror stories…
