One Secret Trick to Pay Half Price for the JFK AirTrain

Like most New Yorkers, I absolutely hate paying for the AirTrain when I need to go to JFK airport. I pay quite enough each month on my MetroCard as is so knowing I need to take a $10 hit just for making a round-trip to the airport is never any fun. Amazingly, there is a […]

Entire Boat with John Mike Rick Ron Joan & Dave

Boating Long Island’s Gold Coast

A couple of summers ago we had the idea to rent a speed boat as a family to celebrate my Dad’s birthday. We ended up exploring NYC by boat and even having lunch while floating beside the Statue of Liberty. It was so much fun that we decided to do it again this year. I […]

She may not have ever had PEZ before, but she knows she wants it.

Visiting the PEZ Factory in Orange, CT

I love PEZ. Not many people know this about me, but I used to be rather obsessed with PEZ. Would it surprise you to know that I have a collection of 439 PEZ dispensers or that I own more PEZ memorabilia than most people even know exist? It’s been awhile since I was an active […]

Spending the Weekend at Oheka Castle

As new parents, it can be difficult to find time to spend just with one another. And by difficult I mean impossible. That’s why we were so excited by a very special gift from my parents – a weekend by ourselves in a castle while they babysat! Surprisingly, we wouldn’t have to travel to Ireland […]

Vietnamese Food in New York: Pho Bang

Ever since I was young, I’ve loved Asian food. Growing up, there wasn’t anything better than Americanized Chinese food. Give me some of that General Tso’s, what could be better? As I got older, I discovered Japanese food and quickly realized it was probably the best cuisine on the planet. Thai food came later in […]

Jumping Around the World

It’s no secret, we love to travel. Somewhere around 2006 or so we started to express our love of travel by literally jumping for joy in our photos. It all began in Egypt actually with a group jumping shot in front of the Great Pyramid. Since then, we’ve been jumping around the world. Sometimes it […]
