[Ad] See that statue popping its head up in the bottom of this picture of the Sevierville, TN courthouse? Know who it is? Hint: she is a tiny powerhouse with a voice that's magic and a huge heart. We loved our walking history tour that @visitsevierville booked for us. See what other things we did at the link in my bio. #rtkbtravels #visittennessee #romanticgetaway #history #historytour #explorers #adventurers #smokymountains #smokymountainvacation #VisitSevierville #couplesgetaway #RTKBDestinationTN #travelers #couplestravel #travelwithoutkids @visitnortheasttennessee @visittennessee
Wedge Salad goals. For real, you guys! @panevinoontheriver makes the best wedge salad and I think part of the secret is the drizzle of balsamic. Now I'm off to buy bacon and blue cheese to recreate it. #rtkbtravels @visitrochester #visitroc #salad #wedgesalad #bluecheese #bacon #balsamic #traveler #lunchgoals #riversidedining
I love discovering new craft beer in areas we travel but sometimes there are just too many options to choose from and I don't know which to choose because I also believe in moderation. That's when I go for whoever has a porter or stout. Is there a local food or drink you just HAVE to try anywhere you travel? I didn't even have to hunt out the breweries in Rochester. There are some good craft beer options on tap at the bar in @hyattregencyrochester. And see the funky texture of the sign behind the bar? It's running water!! #DiscoverHyattRoc @visitrochester #visitroc #craftbeer #ontap #rtkbtravels #localbrew #nybeer #traveler #beeroftheday #beerstagram #instabeer #traveler #womendrinkbeer #womenintravel #craftbrewbeer #happyhour
Who looks for a pool when they book a hotel? I do, but I admit it's usually because I want to send my husband and kids to the pool so I can get a little quiet and reset from a long day. Yes, I did contemplate jumping in the pool, but ultimately decided to dip my foot in and enjoy the lounge chair instead. #DiscoverHyattRoc @visitrochester #visitroc #rtkbtravels #traveler #pool #poolside #familytravel #travelwithkids #exercise @hyattregencyrochester
Siren or mermaid? @2traveldads will set you straight. No, I didn't pop down to the street level @starbucks in @hyattregencyrochester for a #PSL every day even if I may have wanted to. Isn't this just one of the prettiest elevator doors ever, though?! #latte #scavengerhunt #DiscoverHyattRoc #espresso #coffee #siren #rtkbtravels #hotdrink #drinkup #caffeine #traveler #elevator #womenintravel @visitrochester #visitroc
[Press Trip] I didn't catch a shot of the next trivia question: what's the tallest building you can see from the Center City Terrace & Lounge because I was way too busy admiring this Cranberry Pear Kombucha Kosmo featuring @timbucha_kombucha. Can ya blame me? The space is gorgeous too. I did discover that the @hyattregencyrochester is the 7th tallest building in Rochester. #DiscoverHyattRoc #scavengerhunt #explore #cocktail #kombucha #pear #cranberry #cosmo #cocktailhour #cityscape #cityview #womenintravel #travelusa #drinkup #foodietravel #myflxtbex #happyhour #visitroc @visitrochester #rtkbtravels #traveler #feedfeed #traveling #wanderlust #travelbug
Time for another question on our scavenger hunt. Which internationally renowned artist who lives in Richester, NY has a sculpture displayed in the @hyattregencyrochester lobby?

When one is this close to the Canadian border they should make a beeline for the @lepetitpoutine food truck in Rochester. 😍 #poutine #rtkbtravels @visitrochester #visitroc #foodietravel #traveler #cheesecurds #rochester #comfortfood #foodtruck #delish #feedyoursoul #travelusa #familytravel
How gorgeous is this view?! This lake is GREAT but it's also the smallest of FIVE. On a nice clear day they say you can see Toronto. What's my name? I've been challenged to a little scavenger hunt by @hyattregencyrochester. Want to play along? Over the next 2 days I'll post the question.

I was immediately drawn to this artwork from across the room. Red. Black. White. My favorite colors. I stared in fascination. It's morbid and jarring even before one reads the description but still, oh so stunning.

From hosting a baptism service and potluck for 60+ to flying to a conference (@tbexevents ) and following press trip (@visitrochester ) life is never dull around our place. Thankful for our New Hampshire community and family that helps this working mama pull it all off.

That candy stripe is mesmerizing, isn't it? Pull, roll, pull, roll, snip. Over and over. Rows and rows of candy striping. Breakfast at the @applewoodfarmhouse then a stroll through The Apple Barn country and bake store, candy shop. winery, and creamery. A complimentary breakfast at the restaurant is just one small perk of staying at @appleviewresort when you @visitsevierville as a couple or with your family. @visittennessee @visitnortheasttennessee #travel #couplesgetaway #roadtrip #roadtripping #theroadlesstraveled #smokymountains #smokymountainvacation #travelwithoutkids #TRAVELUSA #RTKBDestinationTN #rtkbtravels #candypulling #countrystore #candystripe #candy #sweettreat @discovertennessee
Tomatoes are coming! Tomatoes are coming! From an amazing vacation to the regular old day-to-day.

I've never been to a World Fair, or World Expo as they call it now. (By the way, I read something that said America moved on from World Fairs but the world hasn't.) Fact is, I didn't even know they existed until about 15 years ago and then only because Dave has a 1964/1965 New York World Fair glass....or whatever year that was. Super collectible...as in collecting dust. πŸ˜‚ It's a curious thing to me that so much money goes into this short one-time event to what? Show off the city? Look great? See? Those of you who KNOW are cringing at me right now, aren't you? Explain the magic to me....the magic beyond it's a pretty cool statement building with a pretty cool view. #rtkbtravels #worldfair1982 #RTKBDestinationTN #roadtripping #wanderlust #travelmore #traveladdict #seetheworld #worldfair #couplesgetaway #sunsphere #overthemountains #smokymountains #citysights #cityview #travel #travelblogger #travelbug #theroadlesstraveled #travelusa #knoxville @visittennessee @visitnortheasttennessee
The amount of food you get as a meal here is crazy. This was breakfast for 2 + a side of bacon.

[AD] There is nothing small about food in the south. Loaded Tater Chips at Tony Gore's Smoky Mountain BBQ & Grill are no exception.

Day 1 started out a little late but with a lightly booked itinerary we could afford to take the day as it came. Rare but so nice. And we discovered my husband is a totally different traveling companion without kids. We barely saw anything Washington DC has to offer - about 2/3 of the @smithsoniannmai but that's ok. We put a week long family vacation on our travel bucket list after adoption. #travel #couplesgetaway #roadtrip #roadtripping #rtkbtravels #RTKBDestinationTN #washingtondc #museum #culture #history
Yes, I was packing my clothes for today's trip this morning. Always. Although, I did start packing them 2 days ago so that's an improvement. Excited to be going on a road trip with Dave next week as we head to Tennessee for @alexleehughes & @morriscommajay wedding. It's gonna be an odd trip...only 9.5 hours in 2.5 days versus 9-11 hour drive days and no kids' voices to compete with. We're even planning to stay in the same hotel as we stayed for our honeymoon 1 night. Fitting since this is our "late" 17th anniversary trip. #rtkbtravels #RTKBDestinationTN #travel #theroadlesstraveled #vacation #summervacation #roadtripping #roadtrippers @chevrolet #getaway @visitsevierville @visittennessee
When in Washington... Who can resist a fresh local apricot? Certainly not I. We don't get fresh perfectly ripened apricots like this on the East Coast very often. Popping in at @fruit_city_yakima for fresh produce is just one thing I miss about @uniongapwa. #PNWFoodieRoadTrip #travel #centralwashington #treeripened #fruit #harvest #apricot #orchard #producestand #rtkbtravels #eatfresh #eatlocal #delish #sunripened #agritourism
I'll be honest, this year has been incredibly difficult with both Dave and I juggling work responsibilities, kids turning into teenagers, new roles and responsibilities at church, and navigating relationships and caring for others the way we feel called to - all in. Many dates end up being the only chance we get to sort through difficult decisions and tough topics in all aspects of our lives without children around and it's easy to lose the connection of just being a couple in love. But this guy...I love him more than ever - certainly more than 17 years ago when we said, "I do." It's just really hard sometimes because LIFE. I'm looking forward to carving out some time just for us when we travel to Tennessee next week for friends' wedding because that's so important - couple time. Without kids. We came so close to making it a "tight turnaround trip" but then we didn't. We as parents have to make it happen. Somehow. We just have to do it. Because if there's no time for us there is no us. #loveyoumore #travel #couplesretreat #couplesgetaway #rtkbtravels @visitsevierville #tennessee #theroadlesstraveled #herestous @visittennessee
Sometimes it's my friend @familyspice 's Persian Chicken Kabobs over a campfire and sometimes it's hot dogs and roasted veggies. Tonight I wish I was sitting by a fire...although....no, not really. Thinking it wouldn't be so comfortable after my fall down the deck stairs last night. A few too many bruises right now.πŸ˜‚ #camping #campingwithkids #travel #campfirecooking #rtkbtravels
When on vacation... What was supposed to be a 2-day vacation didn't go right for quite a few reasons but getting #icecream is always right on vacation. We found a cute little chocolate and ice cream shop called Ava Marie Handmade Chocolate and Ice Cream in Peterborough, NH. Ice cream for the kids and I. Chocolate covered bacon for Dave. The life of someone who suffers from eating dairy kinda sucks when it comes to food, if I'm honest, but chocolate covered bacon helps. πŸ˜‰ #rtkbtravels @visitnh #newhampshire #travel #camping #peterboroughnh #icecreamshop #sweettreat #icycold #summervacation #bacon #darkchocolate #chocolatecoveredbacon #familytravel #campingwithkids #theroadlesstraveled #travelwithkids #travelwithteens
[AD] Best way to enjoy a trip? Stay healthy while traveling! One of the things I believe helped me not get sick during or after this trip was boosting my system with @myrtol300. See the link in bio for more on Myrtol 300. For the first time ever I flew cross-country and didn't get sick. That's the only thing I did differently. It's so much nicer seeing the world with a clear head instead of fighting a cold fog. #myrtol300 #travel #rtkbtravels #PNWFoodieRoadTrip #stayhealthy #travelhealthy #roadtripping #lavender #lavenderfields #foodwriter #travelwriter #seetheworld #theworldawaits #supplements #essentialoils

Rows of lavender in contrast with Washington hillsides. Simply stunning. We met the family who is transforming this space from used up logging land to beautiful fields of lavender. They're working hard cleaning up the land, revitalizing it, building a dream, and along with it, growing a playground for the honey bee. A dream takes time, sacrifice, money, and stick-to-it-ness. The family behind @cowlitzfallslavender knows all about that. Hats off to all of you working hard for your dreams. You're an inspiration and I'm glad you were part of our journey. #lavender #PNWFoodieRoadTrip #growers #farmers #plant #revitalize #cowlitzfalls #travel #rtkbtravels #seetheworld #purple #growyourown #buylocal #herbs #theroadlesstraveled #thewindingroad #centralwashington #pnw #countryside #drivemazda

Nope. We didn't go bobbing for apples. Check out these beauties bobbing along in their bath on the way to the sizer and sorter @sage_fruit. They get a few baths along the way then a "spit and shine", aka, a dab of food grade wax brushed on with rollers to keep them nice and juicy before they get sized, packaged, and sent on their way to your grocery store. And this is just a small piece of the process.

[AD] @littlehousebigalaska & I were short on time yesterday so grabbed a quick picnic lunch and set it up in the back of the car by a park full of redwoods. Yes, the @mazdausa cx-9 is that roomy. Just fold the third row seating down. Then we headed out to @visitenumclaw and visited their "main" street, which is full of cute shops and dining, including dinner at @kellysrestaurantandlounge was absolutely amazing.

"With friends like these, who needs anemones?" We were given 4 passes to @newenglandaquarium to share our experience and we met up with @austin.millerb & @indpndnt2001 for the afternoon. It was busy but we saw it all and didn't quite melt in the process. It's a wee bit warm in the aquarium but at least they don't have a live coral reef...we learned it would be much hotter if they did. Coral reefs need lots of sun. #travel #rtkbtravels #familytravel #daytripper #travelwithkids #aquarium @visitboston #boston #newengland #newenglandlife #newenglandbound #vacation #summervacation #fish #anemone #color

We took a whirlwind drive on #RoadTripwithRainier through @grandtetonnps. Stopped for a hike but decided the bear sign was a bit too ominous since we had no way to fend one off....2 parents, 3 kids.

I spy with my little eye...I have a kiddo who sees the little things and found campmate last week at @smc_we_know_camping. Can you see the little guy? Our campsite was beautiful and quiet and even though it was a bit early in the season the weather was perfect for our trip to @sfnewengland & camping out in our @colemanusa but as much as we love our tent we're out growing it a bit and it's time to go shopping for a "boys' tent". And not a moment too soon! Youth Camp snuck up on us and we are heading to Lancaster, PA next weekend so the guys can go to that while we girls camp with my family. Needing that tent now!

The trick to camping meals is prepping ahead where you can. Sealing meat in @foodsaver bags, washing and dicing veggies, and adding paper towel to veggies that need a barrier against moisture.

So much in one day. Y'all can see a lot in my stories but these 3 are my real day enders. 1) Persian Chicken & Vegetables from my friend @familyspice new cookbook.

Hit Center City Philly and all traffic flows around City Hall. It creates a bit of confusion and a jam up especially for out of towners but oh, it's such a majestic building. I love hitting a red light during the day so I can appreciate it or heading north on Broadway at night. I have so many pictures over the years with my favorite being nights where the city lights create a pathway toward it and fog shrouds the view just the slightest bit. Philadelphia will always be one of my favorite cities and nothing has reminded me of that more than writing articles for visitors who book @hiltonhotels stays in Philly. I can't share one of them with you but can't wait until the one is published that I can share. If you want to see the first article, totally book a "Long Weekender" package to Philly and they will share it with you. #travel #righthere #familytravel @visit_pa #visitpa #visitphilly #rtkbtravels #roadtrip #city #love #traveladdict #travelmore #explore #vacation #vacationinspiration #seetheworld #travelblogger #travelwriter #roadtrippin #travelstagram

Feeding 5 people on the road can get a little pricey - even when it's fast food. The other day I told the kids we would get @chickfila for lunch today and a day later my daughter asked if we could make salads at home and just get French fries and nuggets for the salad like we did when we went to NYC around Christmas. I gladly said yes. It's so much cheaper, it's healthy, and this child who fought me over eating salad for 3+ years of her life ASKED FOR SALAD. Picky kid mamas, there is hope.

Ever have a blast from the past that almost knocks the wind out of you? On our road trip last year we drove through an area that holds some tumultuous memories for me. A time when life turned upside down again and again....for what seemed to never end but was only about 4 years. Then when I was 15 we moved from this stunning area in PA late one summer to Upstate NY, which was in the middle of a drought. Is it any wonder I hated it at first glance when I had a view of the Blue Ridge Mountains every day before we moved? I remember sitting on the front porch crying, these words running through my head. "How can I help you say goodbye? It's okay to hurt. It's okay to cry...." Even driving through these mountains 20 years later brought back bittersweet memories but the good memories are there too - like camping in this area with our crazy big family. #rtkbtravels #roadtripping #countryroads #familytravel #travel #theroadlesstraveled #familyroadtrip #newenglandtopnw #roadtripwithrainier #roadtrippers #memories #bluemountains @visitpennsylvania #visitpa #mountains #snapshot #roadtrip #vacation #sunset
Planning your family vacation? Don't plan to see it all or do it all. Last summer we logged 8000 miles in 18 days. It was the trip of a lifetime I wouldn't trade for anything, but it was also full of stress and long hours some days. By the end of the trip there were some things we all decided to just zip through and we were okay with that. @badlandsnps , was one of them. It's such a gorgeous place to drive through and I'm sure it's just as fun to hike. Make sure you add it to your vacation goals list. #nationalparkpass #nationalpark #roadtripwithrainier #familytravel #roadtrippin #familyroadtrip #vacation #vacationdreaming #badlandsnationalpark #badlands #skyformiles #seetheworld #newenglandtopnw #rtkbtravels #adventureawaits
Oh, to be back on the road. I could also go for the warm weather.

Heading into the middle of nowhere NH mountains in our first real snow of the year to get to Dave's work Christmas party for our first overnight without kids in a year (although last year's week away from kids wasn't really vacation since we were beyond stressed about moving and no place to live and Dave was working). #rtkbtravels #christmasparty #nightout #datenight #visitnh #newenglandsnow #travel #weekendgetaway #snow #christmas #winter #winterwonderland
Our friend Loukmane, who we were visiting in NYC, treated us to this amazing meal at Chez Jacob, a French African restaurant at 300 W133rd St in NYC. The second picture shows the menu. I ordered the dish at the top of the lunch menu - minus the egg, which a kid added to my plate. #restaurant #frenchafricancuisine #africanrestaurant #dinner #rice #fish #jolofrice #bonappetit #delish #foodietravel #foodie #nycchristmas #nycweekend #iloveny #feedyoursoull #flavor #ethniccuisine #feedfeed #food52 #seriouseats #eater #rtkbtravels
My daughter spied the baguette in a white paper bag this morning and immediately picked it up and took a sniff. "Oh daddy! Is this NY bread? And did it come from that bakery down the street?" My girl! She was the only who saw the little bakery down the street from where they parked last night. They had dropped me off to check in and gone around a couple blocks to find parking. P.S. picture 2 is the blueberry cheese danish he snuck back to me. The kids woke up while he was gone so he snuck it in the bedroom for me, haha. #breakfast #nycbakery #bread #bakery #baguette #danish #cheese #airbnb #iloveny #rtkbtravels #foodie #nycweekend #roadtrip #familytravel #lazyweekend #vacation #seetheworld

Upside down pear oatmeal cake & an otherwise somewhat crazy morning.
