Heather’s Bag of Tricks: Beyond the Ipad

Love vacations….just hate getting there. And we have always traveled often since the grandparents live far away. I’ve even traveled alone quite a bit with my 3 kids–anything for a few days of sunshine during a long, gray winter.

I lived in Brooklyn for 16 years, so I felt a sense of belonging as I walked around Beacon, NY last weekend. The town was settled in 1709 and has gone through lots of changes in it’s 300 year history but word on the street is that Brooklynites have flooded this town…and revived it. Over […]
