Alderbrook Golf Club + the Hood Canal

It’s been eight weeks since we moved to Washington. And while we are househunting, we are livin’ it up in a  family cabin on a golf course along the Hood Canal.

If you ever travel to the Pacific Northwest, make sure to put the Alderbrook Golf Club and the Hood Canal on your bucket list.

Not Goodbye, Just See You Soon // Our Move to Washington

If you haven’t heard … we’re selling our house in Paso and moving to the Seattle area this summer!

Say whaaaaat? It’s crazy, I know. And I’m equal parts sad and excited for it. But, moving during a pandemic? Not fun. It makes things like saying goodbye and visiting our favorite kid-places “one last time” super complicated. So I’m sayin’ to the heck with all that and already making plans for a mom-cation here when this is all over.

Bobux Paddington Red Boot Review

Today we are reviewing the Bobux Paddington Boot in red. They are $70 for big kids and $60 for littles and so worth the money.  I’ve already received so many compliments on them, including Clara’s teacher who said her boots “were so on point” 🙂 I like that they’re made with solid materials like coated leather with a rubber finish that’s water repellent and scuff resistant. The company also took the time to find child-safe and non-toxic materials and dyes.

Review of Avila Lighthouse Suites, Avila Beach

Overall, this hotel is a must for hotel-scouting families looking for something kid-friendly. It’s perfect for children in the hotel amenities, setup, and location. But, it’s also special because not only are your kids’ needs accounted for (and who are we kidding – they’re the bosses anyway), but the adults also feel like they’re on a pampered beach vacation.  The hotel is steps from the ocean, there are complimentary white fluffy towels in the pool area and there’s a free waffle bar with whipped cream in the morning.
