Warhead Challenge

Warhead Challenge Stow

My kids love YouTube, no doubt. They love watching other kids and families going on surprise trips to Disney World, playing with toys, doing fun and silly things and eating Warheads. They found the Warhead Challenge years ago and have always wanted the chance to try it for themselves after watching other kids’ reactions to [...]

Sea Crest Beach Hotel Falmouth, MA

Sea Crest Hotel Falmouth, MA

We just returned from a wonderful stay at the newly renovated Sea Crest Beach Hotel in Falmouth, MA on Cape Cod.

New Playground in Norfolk, MA

Norfolk Playground Rockwood Road @anniestow

We stumbled upon this gem of a playground this past weekend after hearing about a new one in Norfolk, MA on Facebook!

Drive. Park. Run.

Tiverton, RI

My father-in-law advised me to run near the water. Run different routes. Run with him??   Let’s be clear here. I cannot keep up with my 60 something father-in-law. He is a marathoner after all. Some day I hope to be able to run alongside someone without running at a snail’s pace. But isn’t this view [...]

We recently returned from a romantic retreat to Caribe Royale, in sunny Orlando, Florida. The minute we stepped off that airplane we could feel that sultry Florida air and it felt so good. Upon arrival at the hotel, we were treated to goodies galore, and it was perfect because we were starving. We enjoyed a [...]

Old man winter sure has had a good go around up here in New England, but quite frankly, I’m sick of it all!  Has it not been the longest winter ever? It seems like our Disney vacation was a lifetime ago! I am just so sick of hats, boots, mittens, scarves and chapped lips! Sometimes [...]
