Places 03-31-2016 Flight of Fancy at Eilean Donan Castle

Since I’ve never starred in an episode of Downton Abbey myself, I suppose our tour of Eilean Donan castle was the closest I’ll come.

People Places 03-22-2016 Sky High

Divide and conquer; That’s our strategy for surviving as parents of three kids. But when I’m not just surviving, I’m reminded that nothing speaks love to my kids like spending time one-on-one with them. When it was three-year-old William’s turn for what he calls a “Daddy/William Date”, he opted for Mexican food and a trip to the Aerospace Museum of California. He’d been dreaming about this …
