Family fun on our dog-sledding adventure in the forests of New Hampshire

A couple of the dogs are shy or wary, but most are lovable, attention-seeking showboats. They jump atop their houses and excitedly parade about the roofs, or stretch their leashes to lean in closer to us — panhandling pooches begging for scritches. For the dog-averse, this scene could easily be a nightmare. But we happily zig-zag between the doghouses, stroking their scruffy fur, doling out sweet talk, and soaking up the puppy love. It helps that our 7-year-old, a budding naturalist, has a limitless capacity for petting furry creatures.

We’re warned about Moo, named for his Holstein-style black-and-white coat, who has earned a reputation as a charming but mischievous mitten thief. Sure enough, as my wife, Gina, bends to pet him, Moo furtively tugs off her glove — like a magician doing a sleight of hand — and nonchalantly starts to nibble it while still basking in her affections.

‘Snooki,’ ‘JWoww,’ and ‘Deeners’ wedding speech didn’t go over well

The highlight of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 3 was Pivarncik’s wedding. Leading up to the event, she and her female roommates seemed to have formed a close bond. But that fell apart when Polizzi, Farley, and Cortese delivered their speech. 

“It’s good but funny,” Cortese warned Pivarnick during the episode. At first, the speech seemed harmless. “Not only is Chris the lucky one, but so are we,” Cortese said. Then, things turned sour. 

“Angelina, you’re the

Chelsea reduce allocation of family tickets available to players when fans return

Head coach Frank Lampard has praised Hudson-Odoi’s attitude and the way he responded to being dropped from the Spurs squad, despite scoring against Rennes last week.

But Lampard has also insisted he cannot worry about Bayern Munich making yet another move for Hudson-Odoi when he is agonising over which of his first-team players to leave in the stands.

“For all these players we are talking about, we are talking about a squad where I have to leave out four or five players maybe per game and if I thought about every player and the risk of it, then I would never make a decision. I wouldn’t be able to do the job,” said Lampard.

“I’m aware with Callum and where he’s at. He took it very well. It’s not an easy decision, he took it very well. It’s not an easy conversation, all players want to play, I accept that.

Dina Manzo, Husband David, Daughter Lexi Family Trip Photos

Dina Manzo is spending some quality time with her family in the great outdoors. The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum and her loved ones recently took a trip to Wyoming, and it looked like a pretty picture-perfect getaway. 

Posed on a giant boulder alongside her husband of three years, Dave Cantin, and daughter, Lexi Ioannou, Dina shared a glimpse at the excursion the family had in Grand Teton.

“Spent the entire day trying to find @grizzlybear399 and her four cubs…and I would do it again tomorrow,” Dina captioned the photos. Although the family didn’t seem to have much luck finding the Grand Tetons’ famous grizzly bear, they were decked out with binoculars and even came across some giant footprints in the snow. 

In response to a follower who noted that they were “literally asking for trouble” by looking for the bear, Dina noted that they weren’t alone in their

Idaho family travels U.S. in RV during COVID-19 pandemic

The stress of everyday life was already weighing on the Morse family before the coronavirus pandemic arrived in the United States. Amber Morse said she had been feeling like “the pace of life was just running kids to and from every activity and kind of getting absorbed” in the rush. So when it became clear that the ongoing pandemic would upend any normalcy as their kids returned to school in the fall, the family of six decided to hit the road.

“With having three older children in school, I think it started bringing kind of an angst in me about what that was going to look like, and being a working mom,” Amber said in a video call with the Statesman. “Knowing that there was a possibility of kids being in and out of school (we thought) ‘How are we going to manage that with two working parents?’”
