5 New York Waterfalls to See This Summer

Letchworth State Park Upper Falls

When it comes to waterfalls in New York Sate, Niagara Falls gets all of the credit.  It’s touristy, there’s lots to do, and it can handle the huge crowds.  But for those of us that don’t like our cascades dressed up as amusement parks, there are plenty of other places to go.  Upstate New York […]

How I got My Son to Sleep in His Own Bed


My wife and I have never been the type of people that forced our kids to sleep in their own bed. Sure when they go to sleep for the night we start them in their own beds, but a lot of times we would wake up in the morning with one of them sandwiched between […]
