Irving Berlin’s A White Christmas in Boston [Review]

Irving Berlin’s A White Christmas in Boston [Review]

Guest post by Carrie Edwards of Colorful Spark. Exactly one week before Christmas Eve, I was able to treat my 6-year-old daughter to a special event, attending Irving Berlin’s White Christmas on stage at the Citi Wang Theatre in Boston. I’ve watched the movie every Christmas season for as long as I can remember and… [more]

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical [Review]

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical [Review]

Last night, my dad and I slogged through rain and flooded streets to get my kids to see Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical in Boston. We could have used a sleigh with some reindeer assistance because the traffic was awful and we ended up a few minutes late. Luckily, we zipped into the theater… [more]

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer the Musical in Boston [Giveaway]

Did you know that it’s the 50th anniversary of the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer television special? There will be a lot of celebrating this year for the famous reindeer and his buddies (I’m particularly excited about the set of U.S. Postal Service stamps), but what better way than to catch the whole gang live at… [more]

Annie Comes to Boston [Giveaway]

Annie Comes to Boston [Giveaway]

I love musicals. I grew up in the kind of family that burst into song at the slightest provocation. It’s what we do. As a young girl, Annie was one of my favorites. Not only is the story and music age appropriate, but the idea that your fate could suddenly shift on a dime and… [more]

A Howliday Visit to Great Wolf Lodge New England

We recently made our first visit to Great Wolf Lodge New England via a media trip that highlighted some of their fall and winter in-house celebrations. I’m going to review Great Wolf Lodge separately, because there’s just too much I want to talk about, but the Halloween Howliday celebrations start today, so there’s no time… [more]

Celebrate Valentine’s Day as a Family on the Odyssey in Boston (Giveaway)

Celebrate Valentine’s Day as a Family on the Odyssey in Boston (Giveaway)

Do you do anything special as a family for Valentine’s Day? Do you get them treats or gifts? Have dinner as a family? I’ll admit… I’m not all that great about celebrating Valentine’s Day. I’m often out of town traveling for work and it’s not always easy to find something that’s kid-friendly. If you’re in… [more]

Boston Ballet’s Nutcracker–Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice

Last year, LadyBug and I were treated to a tour of the Nutcracker Suite at the Ritz-Carlton in Boston. We were both captivated by the magic of it (it even inspired one of our Christmas presents that year), but I had context and LadyBug did not. The tutus, Nutcracker and giant bear were all just… [more]

Traveling the Maine Coast on Amtrak’s Downeaster

Traveling the Maine Coast on Amtrak’s Downeaster

I’m a big fan of train travel. I find it to be a relaxing way to get to your destination. You don’t have to worry about traffic, security lines, tolls, or checked luggage. You can move about freely, the bathrooms are roomy, and you can get a hot meal, cold beverage or snacks in the… [more]
