I just wanted to jump on here and tell you about our trip to Stowe, Vermont!  We stayed at the Lodge at Spruce Peak (formerly Stowe Mountain Lodge). It’s an amazing place, and we’ve actually vacationed at the lodge during the last three summers. The PR person there is wonderful, and we’ve been friends for a while now, so when she invited our family for another visit, of course, we said yes! With that here’s a…

I can’t wait to share this review of Club Med in Sandpiper Bay, Florida! A little backstory first… We had originally planned a family vacation to the Punta Cana location of Club Med, but with all of the craziness happening there, we decided to switch our trip to Sandpiper Bay, Florida. Thankfully, Club Med was very accommodating and switched our lodging with just a small penalty. The airline, however, was not so accommodating. Whomp whomp….

A huge thank you to Stowe Mountain Lodge for hosting us during our stay. We had an absolutely amazing time, and we can’t recommend this resort enough as a family vacation destination!  Oh, boy, I don’t even know where to start with this recap. I almost made a video recap because I just have SO MUCH to say about our recent stay at Stowe Mountain Lodge, but, hopefully, I can share all of the awesome details in this…

We hadn’t visited Black Butte Ranch (BBR) since 2015 when Quinn was just a year old, so we were more than ready to return to one of our favorite vacation spots ever. BBR is truly a special place and one we look forward to visiting again and again, especially now that Quinn is older. There’s so much to do! I really could go on and on about how much we love the ranch, but instead I’ll…

We had such a nice time on our family vacation last week. We rented a house in Gilbert, Arizona with Mal’s family, so we had quite the crew – 8 adults and 4 kids under 4 years old. At times, it felt like a circus with all of our crazy monkeys running around, but it was so much fun, and I know we all enjoyed the quality time together. So many wonderful memories were made…

After last year’s Cape Cod Classic with our hometown friends, we decided to make our “family” vacation bigger and better and move it to Moose Lake Ranch in Otisfield, Maine. This year, our group grew to 11 adults and 4 kids, and, my gosh, we had a good time! In fact, there was so much fun, I honestly don’t think I could recap it all, so I decided to create a top 15 of my favorite moments from…

Hey, hey! We’re back from our vacation to Cape Cod. We rented a house in Bourne with some friends for the week and had a wonderful time… well, minus “the plague” (aka stomach bug) that hit some of our group, but we made the best of it, especially with the kiddos in mind. That said, here are some of our favorite family moments with Quinn from our vacation! Spending time at the beach. The house we rented was…

Missed Part 1 and Part 2 of our family vacation to Chatham Bars Inn (CBI)? After nap time and our individual spa services, the three of us ate some lunch in our room and then drove to nearby Chatham Lighthouse Beach to fly Quinn’s first kite together! So fun! He loved it. Doing anything with a kid for the first time is truly the best. I absolutely loved seeing the pure joy and amazement on Q-Man’s face as he looked up…

Ok, here we go! We haven’t gone on too many family vacations with just the three of us, so I took a TON of photos to document our experience. Plus, the nice people at Chatham Bars Inn (CBI) offer us a complimentary 2-night stay, so I wanted to make sure I gave you guys a full review of the property. With that, here’s part 1 of 3 (!!) of our family vacation to CBI! Spoiler: We had…

Hey, hey! If you follow @carrotsncake on social media (snapchat + Instagram), you know that our little family spent a few days on Cape Cod reently. We had an awesome time, and I snapped a zillion photos, so I have quite a few recaps coming your way, including a review of the wonderful and amazing Chatham Bars Inn (CBI), who kindly offered us complimentary accommodations during our stay. That said, let’s start at the beginning with…

Hi, friends! We’re still enjoying our time here in Maine! We hiked Acadia National Park with the little ones yesterday, and Marie and I had a nice girls’ day today. Here are some more photos from our vaca!            

Heyyyyyy! We’re having a blast in Maine so far. Just wanted to share some more photos from our vacation!

Hey, hey! We’re on our way home from Oregon today. It was an absolutely wonderful week away, but we’re looking forward to being home, sleeping in our own beds, and, of course, seeing Murphy. We missed that little furball! Anyway, here are some more photos from our family vacation in Oregon!

Greetings from Oregon! I just wanted to quickly pop in and share some highlights from our family vacation so far. We’re here for a few more days, so there are plenty more adventures to come. Ok, here we go! Ready for July 4th! Iced Americano with coconut syrup and coconut syrup. It’s much too hot for pants.
