Vegas Vacation With the Family

I must have been to Las Vegas at least six or seven times in my life. Mainly for work. But this summer, I took the family for the first time ever. It was a short stopover on our way to the Grand Canyon, but we still managed to give the kids a good feel for what Vegas is all about. The Crazy Hotels I've always wanted to stay at Caesars Palace, but it was always too expensive. For some reason, prices were cheap so I took advantage. I know most hotel casinos on The Strip (are big and opulent but they all pale in comparison to Mighty Caesars. This place was HUGE. Seriously, ...

Our Summer Vacation at Lake George

Apparently, I have a little bit of daredevil in me. Call it a midlife crisis perhaps, but I stepped out of my comfort zone not once, but twice this past weekend during our short vacation to Lake George, NY. Once again, we planned a getaway with my wife's cousins. This time around, we also brought along one of our nephews too. So for those keeping score at home, that's four adults and five teenage boys. Due to schedules, we could only visit Lake George for a few days. But we more than made up for the shortened stay with some serious action. ZIPLINING AT LAKE GEORGE Our fearless team moments before heading up ...

Win a Marvel Comics Carry-On Spinner Luggage ($180 value)

Holidays are coming up and with that comes a lot of travel. I recently shared my favorite new Marvel Luggage with you thanks to the "super" cool folks over at Irv's Luggage. Well, now it's your turn! I'm absolutely loving my Captain America 26" Spinner and can't wait to bring it with me to Philadelphia this month for a weekend vacation. Captain America in the City of Brotherly Love? Works for me! Anyways, like I said, the fantastic folks at Irv's Luggage want to share some Marvel-ous luggage with you as well. That's why they're offering up an awesome Marvel Comics 21" Carry-On Spinner as a prize! How cool is that thing? Sadly ...

My Marvel Luggage Means I Travel in Super Style

One of my many superpowers is my ability to pack. Whether it's to move an entire house or get the whole family ready for a big Disney World vacation, I have this uncanny ability to treat clothes like Tetris blocks and magically fit them all in smoothly. It's a gift. The one thing I don't have, though, is super cool luggage. At least, I didn't until I recently hooked up with my friends over at Irv's Luggage. (We'll talk about them a little bit later...) Sick of always grabbing the wrong black suitcase from the luggage turnstyle at the airport, I decided it was time for a change. Time for a MARVELous ...

Our First Trip to Disney World – Part 2: Animal Kingdom

We survived our first day at Disney World: Hollywood Studios. After an exhausting day, we tried to get to bed as early as possible because it was a very early start on Day 2. Yes, our 2nd day was a wild one as we ventured into Animal Kingdom! Up before 6 am (If it weren't for my wife, I think the entire rest of our group would still be sleeping right now!), me, Allie and the boys were up, dressed finished breakfast and got on line for the bus well before 8 am. Thankfully her cousin Ivy and her family made it in time as well. The reason for such an ...

Our First Trip to Disney World – Part 1: Disney Hollywood Studios

Our Disney World vacation was officially underway. Up bright and early to catch the bus from All Star Sports hotel, we made it to Disney Hollywood Studios before the park even opened. I was already seriously impressed. No, not at the crazy cool awesomeness that is Disney, but at the fact that my wife Allison had managed to get all eight of us up, dressed and at the park so early. Getting me, Jason and Ryan up is one thing, but she also got her cousins Ivy and Ira (and their two boys Matt and Ethan) into the solid vacation routine. We were all one tired, well-oiled machine! While I had been ...
