Like most people we love a day at the beach. Currently we live most of the year in Las Vegas, Nevada, which is in the middle of the desert!! – so when we travel to the likes of LA, Florida or back to New Zealand (where we are from) we always seek out the nearby

Since becoming new parents 14 months ago we’ve become much more conscious and careful (but certainly not perfect) about protecting our daughter’s delicate skin against harmful UV rays than our parents ever were with us in the 70’s and 80’s. Sound familiar? As young children in New Zealand my brother and I were very inconsistent

We do a lot of air travel and as our daughter is now 14 months old she is getting more challenging to entertain on flights. She loves interacting with other passengers and, as she is an engaging child with a gorgeous smile, she laps up all the attention she can get. But we can’t do

San Antonio's downtown River Walk is something special.

We were recently back in Austin, Texas visiting a cousin Michelle who lives there. Once again we greatly enjoyed our walks along the banks of Labybird Lake (Lake Austin) and Kate couldn’t get enough of the vegan food scene (especilly Capital Bakery and Arlos). Michelle was very keen to show us the downtown area of
