Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2016

It's that time of year again! We've previously covered Mickey's Not So Scary and shared our experience, but we were able to make again this year, this time for opening night. We'll be sharing our experience soon and discussing some of the differences this year compared with last. Spoiler alert--we liked some of the changes!

October & Halloween 2016 Event Round-Up for Families with Kids in New England (plus some out of the area events)

October & Halloween Events for Families in New England

It's starting to cool off and pumpkin-everything is everywhere (someday we'll talk about how much I love pumpkin, but despise the "Pumpkin-Spice-all-the-things" trend). We've created a round-up of some of the bigger events we found being held in New England this October, many of which center around Halloween. While we tried to find some of the most family-friendly events, please keep in mind that scare-thresholds often vary from child to child and some of these events might be more appropriate for tweens/teens while others may suit younger children. Hopefully this is helpful to any families that will be in the area in October looking for something fun to do!


'Tween Waters Inn Island Resort & Spa Captiva Island, FL First Impression August 2016


'Tween Waters Inn Island Resort & Spa Captiva, FL

The Gulf Coast of Florida is one of our favorite east coast destinations--shells galore, beautiful beaches and a peacefulness you can't experience in many other parts of Florida. Don't get me wrong, we absolutely love Orlando and all of the parks (looking at you Hogwarts and Magic Kingdom), but when we need some family downtime, the Gulf Coast is near the top of our list!

If you follow our blog you may have seen our general updates on our trip to Florida, but now that we're back we want to go into detail on some of the places we stayed and things we did! I'm sure you'll be able to tell by our video (some of which was taken by our oldest starting at 2:31 and then 3:48) that we had a great time on Captiva. Ready to learn more about our stay at our first destination, 'Tween Waters Inn, on Captiva?

Keeping it Real on Social Media - The truth the camera never catches

Both candid photos were taken from a significant distance in an attempt to capture real moments. One is picture-perfect and social media "worthy". One is far from it. Both are who we are.

Guys, we have a dilemma.
