Sightseeing in New York City Even on a Cold Day

Sightseeing in New York City Despite the Weather

Going to New York City anytime is exciting. Just ask one of the 61.5 million tourists that visit every year. My husband had never been to New York City before so he wanted to see as much of the city as possible in the short time we had there. The wind was brisk, making it miserable some of the days to walk through the city for long. There was so much to see, so little time, and it was cold. My husband is a good guy and all but being the true southerner he is, he and the chilly weather were not a good combination. The odds were working against us a little. So, how did we still see the city and stay warm? By riding, THE RIDE

Why is Time Away SO Needed for Couples?

Taking Some Time Away for a Happy Marriage

Life is crazy enough as it is but then add children and life picks up tremendously. It is SO easy to get distracted with life that you lose sight of what your true main focus should be. No one grows up saying they can’t wait to get married to have a miserable marriage. No one grows up with the idea that they want a house full of wild, rebellious children. Yet, so often that is what happens. In my almost 18 years of marriage, I have found that when life gets cluttered with a super busy lifestyle, your focus gets off of the important things. That leads to a mundane marriage or even an unhappy marriage. The children become out of control from the combination of a lack of communication between parents and decreased attention given to the children. So, what is the solution when life seems to be too busy?! Time away!

What I’m trying to say is that some of the memories you’ll be creating will last forever and your kid will probably have a better understanding of the world around them.

What to Include in a Camping First Aid Kit

Camping First Aid Kit

The type of camp vacation planned will to some degree dictate the first aid kit essentials. The potential hazards and possible removal from convenient medical assistance will be more of an issue when wilderness camping so first aid kits for these experiences may be a little more involved and require more careful planning. However, when camping at a designated campsite although it is useful to have a basic first aid kit incorporating certain essentials it is less critical as site owners will often have both medical facilities and trained first aiders. It is perhaps most prudent to assume these facilities are not available and plan accordingly.
