Kittatinny Campgrounds – Our Stay at the Evergreen Riverview Cabin

We received free lodging at this camping. All opinions are my own. This past weekend we escaped the craziness of the city and headed to the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York to spend a few days at Kittatinny Campgrounds. Kittatinny is the pioneer of the river outfitting industry and has been operating on the Delaware river for 80 years! Their multiple locations are strategically located to provide a diverse selection of river trips and give you the best in riverfront camping. With two campgrounds across two states, there is plenty of space to discover the beauty of the Pocono and Catskill Mountains. Kittatinny Campgrounds has long been our family summer getaway destination. Before Gabriel was born in 2017, we used to go for a camping trip at the Kittatinny every year. We always enjoyed it so much! The contact with nature, unplugging, the sounds of the river and all the river water sports made us want to plan a getaway every summer. So this year, I wanted to take the boys to experience some …

A Day Trip to Sesame Place in Langhorne PA

I received complimentary tickets to visit the park in exchange for a media coverage. All opinions are my own. This weekend we took a trip down to Pennsylvania to visit Sesame Place amusement park. Sesame Place is located in Langhorne, (just outside of Philadelphia) and is a park themed entirely to the world & characters of the kid’s show: Sesame Street. Since the park is only about an hour away from our home in New Jersey we left at around 9 am (the park opens at 10 am) and got there just a few minutes past 10. Parking at the park is $30 and for preferred parking (which lets you park closer to the park) prices start at $50. We received preferred parking ticket and were able to park pretty close to the entrance! When you arrive at the entrance of the park, all bags will be checked. You can bring in water but no outside food. They will check your bags first and at the second gate, the staff will scan your tickets, and …

Thank you Liberty Science Center for inviting us to preview the Woobly World Exhibit. As always, this post is 100% my opinion. Now that temperatures are getting colder, I’m always looking for activities where kids can explore, release some energy and have fun.
