Arizona – Sedona (May 2013)

Arizona – Sedona (May 2013)

And finally I’ve got round to writing about the last part of our trip to Arizona back in May 2013… We drove from the Grand Canyon knowing we only had a couple of days of holiday left.  We were already talking about what adventures and things we’d like to see on our next holiday.  The … Continue reading

The Grand Canyon and Monument Valley

We could have stayed longer in Scottsdale but the Grand Canyon called. The drive took us through the semi arid desert, Sonora. The landscape changed from cacti filled desert as we drove higher and it began to look more like Yosemite, with pine forests on the slopes of the higher hills and mountains. But still … Continue reading

Turbo Tourism in New Orleans

Turbo Tourism in New Orleans

Before we had children, we used to be able to go away for the weekend to European cities and see a lot of things and still get to work on Monday (or maybe Tuesday…)  We called this Turbo Tourism – getting a taste for a place to see if you want to come back and … Continue reading

Raccoons on the Roof!

Sea World, San Antonio

We’ve just got back from a weekend staying in San Antonio so that we could visit Sea World.  We had wanted to go for the Little One’s 4th birthday in November but it’s closed during the Winter (people here think that November is a cold month… obviously not for us!) We all had a fantastic … Continue reading

I’ve been taking photographs of the Northern Cardinals in the nest outside the back door for the girls to take in for Show & Tell next week.  Just in case you’re keen to see how they’ve grown in a week, here they are: For what happened next, click here.

Can we help you with your affair?

The club we’re members of (that does sound a bit posh, doesn’t it, but it’s the thing people seem to do here – a bit like being a member of a David Lloyd fitness club back home) is great. We really enjoy going there and they hold some great events for adults and kids. Some … Continue reading
