The Michael W Travels family visited Diggerland, an awesome construction theme park located in West Berlin, NJ back in the summer 2014.

Lucas was 2.5 at the time and asked on numerous to visit again. We didn’t get to go to Diggerland again until this past May and this construction theme park was even better than we remembered!

Diggerland Construction Theme Park, Even Better Than We Remember!

diggerlandIn July 2014, the Michael W Travels family visited Diggerland, an awesome construction theme park located in West Berlin, NJ.

At the time of our visit, Lucas was 2.5 years old. He was too small to drive any vehicles on his own but still had a great time. He hasn’t forgotten about Diggerland and has asked if we could visit again quite a few times.

We planned to return to Diggerland but it just never happened. Then, I received an invite to the Diggerland 2018 Media Preview Day. This was a great excuse to head to the park again last weekend! Continue reading Diggerland Construction Theme Park, Even Better Than We Remember!

A Delicious Award Winning Burger & More at VB3- Jersey City, NJ

VB3 Jersey City

I was recently invited to VB3 Restaurant for a tasting in Jersey City, NJ.

My initial reaction was most likely going to be a no thank you since I rarely make special trips to New Jersey but then I read a bit more about the chef and had to take VB3 up on the offer.

Chef Michael Colletti runs VB3 Restaurant & Bar with his family.

When I read that Chef Colletti had a burger on the menu at VB3 which had back to back victories at the Food Network’s 2009 Food & Wine Festival “Rachel Ray Burger Bash” in Miami & NY, I had to stop in to give it a try (along with some other items from the menu!).
