I love March Break. It comes at the time of the year when you need it the most, March. 🙂

It’s the one school break that matches for my husband, the kids and for me. Yes, I’ve been quiet lately, I’ve been getting ready for some family fun and I haven’t been in my kitchen.  Here is what we have been up to….

We decided to travel all the way to Chicago to see if our deep dish pizza was a match for the real thing.

My man…… and his pizza were up for the challenge.


Turns out our pizza rocks. Sorry Gino.

My little man, before the plane ride, he looks so grown up


My little man, after the plane ride, nope – still just 5

When travelling with kids you should not pack “light”…. turns out the cab ride from the airport to the hotel was just too much for them.

The best vacations come with Legos, and Legos teach the best lessons (and vacations have “time-out” spots)
