Our sunscreen? Banana Boat…naturally!

"Banana Boat Natural Reflect Sunscreen"

We went to Cancun last week. And since it’s significantly closer to the equator than, say, Philly, we figured we better be prepared when it came to protecting ourselves from the sun.

Luckily, the good folks at Banana Boat offered to help us out. They sent us three tubes of the new Banana [...]

Time for family vacation? Try New York City!

"FAO Schwartz Toy Store"

Did you know that New York City is often a departure point for various family cruises? I didn’t know that, either! I automatically assumed (and we know what that means) that cruises always departed from Florida. Wrong.

Now that we’ve got that established, I want to share a brilliant idea with you. If you’re [...]

Yes, I’ve done the Kingda Ka!!

About five years ago, my brother and I planned a weekend visit together so that we could go to Six Flags Great Adventure. Why?

The Kingda Ka.

It is the fastest roller coaster in North America and the tallest roller coaster in. the. world.

It goes 128 mph (within 3.5 seconds, might I add) [...]

Yes, family vacations can be affordable!

"MIssissippi Gulf Coast Beaches"

Vacations can be expensive. And, when it becomes a family vacation, my oh my, it can be a real challenge to keep it within a budget. But, guess what?

Summer of Kristin: The Cream of the Crest

I’ve been in love with Wildwood my entire life…it’s an island in itself, a five-mile island of wonderfulness. It stretches from North Wildwood, through Wildwood, and down to Wildwood Crest (where I am). The Crest is far-removed from the noise and bustle of the rest of the island, where there is a larger concentration [...]

I found my house!

I am happy to announce that I’ve found the seaside retreat where I hope W and I can retire.

This house, located in Toms River, New Jersey, is currently on the market. It’s comedian Artie Lange’s house (most recently of the Howard Stern Show). It’s been on the market for about eight months now, [...]

The Summer of Kristin: Boardwalk Games (or, how to lose your shirt)

I’ve told you about the boardwalk on more than one occasion but it occurred to me that I have yet to delve into the world of carnival games. And I feel like I must share this with you because it’s making me CRAZY.

For starters, there’s one game (or pair of games, rather) where [...]

Summer of Kristin: A Sad Day in Wildwood

As I sat on the beach today, reading my little heart out, little did I know that a girl had fallen from the Wildwood Ferris Wheel, just 30-some blocks away, on the boardwalk.

The lead story on the news today took us by surprise — shock, really — when we saw witnesses and police [...]
