There’s a place where people say “Dreams Do Come True,” that place is Disneyworld, and in 2009, that statement became true for me. When we flew down from Detroit to Orlando, little did we know what all was in store for us. We were going to get to try new foods, stay in the biggest hotel we’ve...Tags:
I woke up shivering. The scent of freshly fallen rain, coupled with the essence of nature's brewery at work captivated my senses; however it was the chilly air and the puffs of breath in front of me that dominated my attention.

One day it was a muggy eighty degrees and next thing you know we are getting hailed upon. I mean, if that is not cool then I don’t know what is! Who...Tags:
I have been fascinated by dinosaurs my whole life and am interested in studying paleontology. So, four years ago, my parents took me on a 3-week trip to all the museums and places where I could learn about paleontology in the Western U.S. and Canada. We started out by traveling to Grand...Tags:
My Mom walked into my room in Colorado saying, “Crystal, you have way too many things, we don’t have room for all that.” Confused, I looked down and only saw one suitcase and two shopping bags packed. Little did I know that the space available was limited; our family was traveling for who knows...Tags:
It was all started by a mouse – well, for Walt Disney at least, and for me too. As avid Disney addicts, my family has been to the Mouse House each year since I was two.
