Yosemite national park had been our bucket list for a while, and the wedding we were attending in Napa gave us the perfect excuse to weave this into our trip out west. We made the four hour drive from the rolling hills of Napa, through the flat plains of Central CA, until we reached the Sierra Nevada mountain range. For accommodations, we stayed with the Rush Creek Lodge . The resort boasts 143 rooms, suites, and hillside villas, and is only a few miles from the entrance to the National Park. Many of the rooms feature amazing panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. Our room was in the perfect location with a view of the pool area and mountains. Inside the rooms have a new, clean, luxurious feel, with upscale bathrooms. We also had a nice deck to enjoy the scenery. Outside the room amenities, the property itself features a ton of activities to enjoy while you're not in the national park. The main attraction is the outdoor heated pool and t
Whenever we get the opportunity, it always feels nice to go somewhere really far away, outside of the country. Recently we made the trip to St. Lucia, which is one of the southernmost Caribbean islands. St. Lucia has a rainforest climate and is more mountainous than many of the other Caribbean islands. We stayed with the Coconut Bay Resort for 4 nights. Coconut bay is located in the Vieux Fort area of the island, which is the southern tip by the airport. The location couldn't have been better after a long flight. The resort is split into two sections—the adults-only Harmony side and a kids and family area. The Harmony side features a more intimate and private setting with 2 pools and multiple bars. The kids and family section was loaded with fun activities including a waterpark with three water slides, pool volleyball, water polo, and a lazy river—to name a few. If you're looking for a more active day, this was the place to be. We had a great time par
This past weekend we took our first travel adventure with our newborn, Hailey. There was no better place to enjoy this memory than the Moose Meadow Lodge & Treehouse located in Duxbruy, VT - next to the landmark town of Waterbury. The lodge's story began when owners Greg Trulson and Willie Docto met at a B&B in the mountains of West Virginia in 1992. From there, they visited many more B&Bs, and had the dream of opening one with their own personal touches. In 1998 that dream became a reality when they oppened the Moose Meadow Lodge. Over the years they've added so many personal touches which make the property such a unique experience. The wood finishings are locally sourced from the forests, sinks carved from rocks on the property, and many of the furniture on the property is hand crafted by Greg. Even the maple syrup served at breakfast is sourced from the trees on the property. The common areas have the feel of a luxury cabin but with local c
