Rogers at a Chocolate Factory!

OBSESSIONS If you know me, you will know that I am a chocoholic. However, I am not like my husband or children who eat ALL chocolate. I am a chocolate snob. Therefore, whenever I have the opportunity to tour a chocolate factory, I do so! Truth: I endure the lecture on the process just so

Buying Tickets When we were first exploring Panama as a potential living situation, we saw that there is a Monkey Island where the monkeys will come right up to you. That’s all we needed – Cole and I were in! Once we arrived, I began searching for the right tour. I will be honest, I’m

My Birthday Celebration at Mambo Beach

Luckily the lockdown was lifted just in time to celebrate year 45 on the beach! Now was the difficult decision to choose which one – yes I know this problem won’t gain sympathy from anyone. The family and I settled on Mambo beach. While we have been on this beach for shopping, dinner, and happy

Scampi’s Restaurant On the Water

Caribbean Dining at Tabooshh!

The Discovery We came here by accident. This is a common occurrence for my family. Our family of five shares a car and the older two believe that “ball is life” and have us trained in that mindset. This means we are constantly driving them to practices and games. Last night, Cole was training an

Most of you know me, I’m not one for nature! One of my favorite phrases is, “I don’t outdoors”. But I do LOVE water, all water, fish tanks, oceans, seas, rivers, shoot – I even love baths. So, when I’m “trapped” on a beautiful Caribbean island with a National Park, I will give it a
