Welcome to Tween and Teen Tuesdays at! I hope you’ll come share your posts about your not-so-little-but-not-so-big kids with me.

Tween Tuesday Linky, Teen Tuesday Linky

This week, my boys and I set out for New York. Not the city, but upstate where I grew up.

They haven’t been back there in six years – Michael was 6 and Jack was 2. They were able to meet some family and see a few sights!

It’s so much easier traveling with older kids. I didn’t have to entertain them for the entire flight (10 hours travel time!) and they helped me out when I needed. It’s a totally different travel experience!

We have had quite a week – fishing with Grandpa, visiting the New York State Museum, exploring underground caverns, zip lining, a family get together, lots of comfort food, and boat rides on the lake. It has been a great week!


Our Crazy Boys

Traveling with the boys is fun – and I love being able to show them where I grew up!

Have you traveled with your tween or teens lately? Where did you go?


I’d love to read about your tweens and teens – I know they’re not always easy to write about!

Funny, serious, or anything in between, please come link up with me!

    We had a wonderful time. And I hope that when Michael said “I hope I don’t have my license the next time we see you” isn’t true. Love you all.

    1. He’s a dork! I can’t believe he said that!

  2. I took my daughter to upstate NY a few years ago to hang out at a friend’s lake house in Unadilla. It was so much fun! It’s a lovely area!

    1. Isn’t it beautiful? We had a blast!

      I’ve never heard of Unadilla – I’ll have to look it up!

  3. Looks so fun! My kids are tweens or teens but we have traveled quite a bit recently. I agree, it really is fun to travel with kids. They see everything so differently and with such excitement (usually) that it makes the trip even more enjoyable.

    1. I completely agree, Tesa! They’re great travel partners :)

    Looks like a wonderful trip.
    Great photos!

  5. How fun! I love my boys now, but traveling with them is not the easiest thing in the world. Looks like they had a wonderful time, and it looks so beautiful there!

    1. It gets easier, Amy! I promise!

  6. Jack Milgram says:

    I used to fish with my Dad and that was one of my best childhood memories ever. It’s cool that you spend such a wonderful time together.

    1. Thanks, Jack! I have some great fishing memories, too – it’s a great way to spend time together.

  7. I love upstate NY at this time of year. I went to college in Binghamton and just taking the drive with the fall foliage is breathtaking.

  8. I’m SO not there yet with my boys, but love this idea for a link up. Hopefully it will still be here for reference in a few years! :)

    No matter if some one searches for his essential thing,
    so he/she desires to be available that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained over here.

    Look at my web-site – veterinary assistant schools

  10. Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a
    paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m
    completely confused .. Any recommendations? Kudos!

    a great author.I will make sure to bookmark your blog and definitely will come back in the foreseeable future.
    I want to encourage yourself to continue your great job, have

  12. Such a lovely family! I wonder if this is really so easy to travel with kids even if they are already older? My kids, for instance, are teens but traveling with them is still a real challenge ; ) Probably, they are just too spoiled and antsy.
