A Fancy Family Trip to Miami Should Be at the Top of Your Bucket List

The beginning of summer was rough for my family. I’m always a bit burned out by the end of the school year since not only am I a mom, but I also work at a local Boca private school. But what complicated everything this year was that my grandfather (at age 92) passed away on June 1st. Yes, I know it was his time and he lived a great life (especially being married to my grandmother for 70 years!!). But it also created a lot of extra work for my family. We had never planned a funeral before. Now we are experts…unfortunately… :/

Since Modern Boca Dad and I are obsessed with Game of Thrones (like the rest of the world), I stumbled across Game of Axes in Boynton Beach on Instagram. I sent them a direct message with some questions and the owner got back to me personally about this fascinating sport that I knew very little about. He also invited me (and a group of 11 of my closest friends) for a friendly, Friday night axe-throwing competition complete with polite beverages and plenty of GOT-style photo opps. Spoiler alert: we had a BLAST! Continue reading Axe Throwing Near Boca Raton at Game of Axes
