  • Floods of Family in Texas

    This past week we were in Houston, San Antonio, and Austin, TX. In Houston we met up with family on mom’s side and went to several places. We went to TopGolf (a golf game), the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart. The stadiums where some of the TX sport teams play, and Bishops Palace in Galveston, […]

  • Naw’lins

    Today we went to New Orleans. We started our day by having beignets for breakfast, at Cafe du Mond. Mmmmmm! I can just taste that powdered sugar! For those of you who don’t know what beignets, they are a French donut with powdered sugar on top; they are very good if I do say so […]

  • Ave Maria Grotto

    Today we went to Ave Maria Grotto. It was a grotto built in 1918 by Father Joseph Zoetl. It started as a hobby of building mini grottos. Then, when a cargo load of marble toppled over and was crushed, they gave it to the Benedictine monks. Brother Zoetl soon set to work on more grottos. […]

  • Rounding the Corner & Old Friends

    Okay everybody, this might be tiny bit boring. But don’t worry it’s not too boring 🙂 On the evening 18th of Oct. we met up with one of daddy’s Beachbody coaches, Ms. Sharon, and her husband, Mr. Will, for dessert. We popped into the Cheesecake Factory and ordered our yummy cheesecake. Then we drove to […]

  • Gettysburg at last!

    Yesterday we arrived in Gettysburg, kinda sad, since the park was shut down, but nevertheless excited, since we had watched the 4-hour long movie Gettysburg. It was a historically accurate, well done, very good movie. You should watch it! After parking the RV, we walked about 10 minutes to the Gettysburg Museum of History, which […]

  • Quakertown and Padre Pio

    We left the Catskill Mountains and got on the road to Pennsylvania…Quakertown. No, we didn’t see any Quakers :), but we did get to practice golfing a little at Fox Hollow. It was primarily a travel and rest day for us. The next morning we got up bright and early to go to Barto, Pennsylvania…the […]

  • A Divine Shrine

    After visiting the mansions, we drove to Massachusetts. On our way, we saw The Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield. (How many Hall of Fames can we see? First football, then baseball, and we even passed by the Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport!) We decided to stop there, but unfortunately they were closed. But […]

  • Mansion Hopping Part 2

    Today, we woke up early, parked the RV in front of The Elms, and walked 15 minutes to Chateau-sur-Mer, the home to 3 generations of the Wetmore family. Chateau-sur-Mer is a product of the American-China Trade, and was built in 1852! It is actually modeled in the style of an Italian Villa, however, Mr. Wetmore […]

  • Mansion Hopping Part 1

    The past two days, we have been occupied with, as Gigi put it, “Mansion Hopping.” The city of Newport, Rhode Island, was the location of many Summer Homes of the wealthy during the Gilded Age (I’ll explain more on why it’s called that later). Some of the homes include: The Breakers (built by Cornelius Vanderbilt […]

  • Plymouth Rocks! And so does Cape Cod!

    Today (Thurs., Oct. 10) we went to Gillette Field, where the Pats and the Revolution (the soccer team) play, and Plymouth, Massachusetts. At Plymouth, we saw the Plymouth Rock and learned a little bit about its history. In fact, we learned that when they were moving it, it split in half, with one half in […]
