There’s a learning curve to doing anything with children, especially twins. We were jumping into the great unknown when we decided to travel to upstate New York in early spring with six-month-old twins. We survived, however, even if we did learn some valuable lessons for the next time we travel.
I love California. It's got great weather, countless natural wonders, and a diverse mix of cultures that is hard to find anywhere else. What it doesn't have is fall. The weather does cool down, the air gets crisper, and the leaves do change color, but when compared to the colors of the northeast and midwest, it's a pitiful display. This October finally brought me fall in all its vibrant glory with a road trip through the northeast.
