Before our first child arrived in 2008, we’d traveled to Italy, Spain, Greece, Turkey, France, Canada, Hawaii, Alaska, Disney World, and numerous Caribbean islands.

Family Vacation Spotlight: Discovery Cove, Orlando
Orlando’s reputation as a family fun destination is well-deserved, but there are plenty of attractions besides Disney. Personally, I love theme parks. I’ve visited all the Disney Parks, SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, Universal Studios numerous times before baby was born. (I used to work at Expedia and Travelocity, so I got industry deals and traveled a lot back in […]
