Next Stop: Appel Farm Arts and Music Festival

Next Stop: Appel Farm Arts and Music Festival

We have gone to this music festival both pre- and post-children. It is a great time no matter what. Good music, good food, and plenty of puppet shows and crafts for the little guys. Not to mention a really great local wine tent. Last year, the boys were barely walking and they still had a blast. Tickets are still available if you want to join in the festivities. Best part? Children 12 and under are free! Second best part? You can bring in coolers. Start making them PBandJ sandwiches. Read More

Claws and Paws (and Puddles, Oh My!) Poconos, Pennsylvania

Claws and Paws (and Puddles, Oh My!) Poconos, Pennsylvania

If it isn’t on there already, add feeding a giraffe to your bucket list. The boys had the opportunity to feed Twiga some carrots last Saturday at the Claws and Paws Zoo in the Poconos. This was a surprisingly awe-inspiring experience. The zoo brags about how close you will get to their animals and they are not exaggerating. Having a giraffe’s head about a foot away from your face is quite remarkable. I was shocked that the boys both held steady with the carrot grasped in fist while Twiga wagged her tongue around trying to grab it.... Read More

Pit Stops: Make Them Count (Stephanie’s Rules for Rest Areas)

Pit Stops: Make Them Count (Stephanie’s Rules for Rest Areas)

Even before the boys came along in all of their life-changing glory, Jeremy and I were never ones for air travel. Aside from a few vacations here or there, we embraced the fine art of the road trip. We were pretty good at it, too. One time we made it all the way from New Jersey to California in about 50 hours, stopping only for a brief overnight in Denver accompanied by the best steak dinner of our lives. So for most people, including us, this is how a typical pit stop goes: you find a place where you can get gas, eat a meal, and use the... Read More

More About Hiking With Kids (Q&A with Sara Dickerman)

* Sara Dickerman’s insightful articleabout hiking with her son Gus got us pretty darn excited for our first serious hike of the season at Bushkill Falls.  Before heading out on the trail with the twins in tow we decided to ask Sara for a few more words of wisdom about hiking with kids. She kindly obliged… LLC: What gear is essential to you when hiking with a child? SD: Well—if you’ve got a child who can walk most of the way on their own, the most important things are lots of snacks and lots of water. They shouldn’t be wholesome... Read More

A Brief History of Locomotion: Mini Kicks Kick Butt

A Brief History of Locomotion: Mini Kicks Kick Butt

There is just no substitute for the entertainment and satisfaction of riding around on a good set of wheels. Although our boys have not yet reached the two-wheeler stage, various ride-ons have been crucial to campsite happiness. We have never taken a trip without bringing along the cycles du jour. We have had varying levels of success with each one, however they all satisfy one enormously important criterion: Never buy a ride-on toy that requires an adult to push it. Never. Ever. Ever. We are good parents. But everyone has their limits. The... Read More
