I Bet You’ve Never Seen a Travel Vlog for Ulysses, Kansas

I must really love my sister. I mean, why else would I offer to drive with my mother and two toddlers on a crazy road trip from Virginia Beach, Virginia to Ulysses, Kansas just to visit her "nothing-to-do town?!" Just for reference, Siri tells me this trip is 23 hours of drive time and 1,584… Continue reading I Bet You’ve Never Seen a Travel Vlog for Ulysses, Kansas

24 Hours in Washington, D.C. with Toddlers: Our Getaway Vlog

I love my husband, but going away for just a day to the nation's capitol during the final week of the National Cherry Blossom Festival just seems hectic.
