New Year’s and Our Three Favorite Causes

December 30, 2015

Donating to favorite causes always comes to mind as the year draws to a close. Every year, in fact, the last few weeks on the calendar turn out to be some of the biggest giving days.  So we wanted to highlight three of our favorite charitable causes. One of our favorite worthwhile causes is Bread of Life, a Branch of Giving Tree Global.  Bread of Life is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation based in Rye, New York, that focuses on feeding the hungry in our area.  The charity meets the urgent supply needs of food pantries, shelters and soup kitchens throughout southern Westchester […]

Family Trip to Philadelphia: A City of Great History and Culture

April 13, 2015

  A Family Trip to Philadelphia offers an opportunity to expose your kids to some important history and culture.  While our family is lucky enough to have relatives there, we would love visiting Philadelphia anyway, for this historic city is the birthplace of our country.  With its rich history and important cultural institutions, this extraordinary city makes for a truly spectacular vacation for any family. We think you should plan on spending at least three or four days there in order to have enough time to enjoy all of the historic sites, world-renowned museums and fun sporting events.  We’ve found that […]

Family Travel Emergencies

January 29, 2015

  On a recent trip, we had plenty of time to think about Family Travel Emergencies! Family travel, as we all know, presents its own set of challenges, especially in distant locations where English isn’t the native language. It is quite likely that if you travel with your family often, sooner or later you could face an emergency of some kind.  We were reminded of this not too long ago when we were confronted with a potentially dangerous situation, and we thought it would be helpful to share our experiences and those of our readers in order to help other […]

Cincinnati: Surprisingly Hip and Delightful

January 7, 2015

Cincinnati: Surprisingly Hip and Delightful The last time we visited Cincinnati was over ten years ago, as part of our family baseball tour.  Recently we traveled to Cincinnati twice on business and were surprised at the changes.  We think it is truly under-rated! Cincinnati’s visually striking mix of bridges over the winding Ohio River, combined with the unique urban architecture downtown, offers up a winning combination of the old and new.  We found a wide variety of historic parks and art museums nestled among very hip restaurants and hotels.  And don’t forget the Great American Ball Park, home of the Cincinnati Reds, which […]

The Holiday Vacation Movie Previews made us fired up for the Christmas break.

Especially on Christmas day, when we are still enduring the food coma from the Seven Fish Christmas Eve dinner party (and yes Swedish Fish do count)! The swank Crosby Street Hotel in Soho   “NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB” So when “the Moms”, Denise Albert and Melissa Musen Gerstein, invited us to a screening of Night At the Museum: Secret of the Tomb at the […]
