Trail mix is one of those snacks that you can eat almost anywhere whether at a party, on the go, or while you're sitting at your desk at work. It's not only tasty but healthy, too! Here is a simple but wonderful homemade trail mix recipe.
Some days, the hardest thing to do is to be in the house with rambunctious kids, yet finding something to do with them proves more difficult. Whether its the price, day, or time that causes the conflict; this can leave a parent hopeless and at the end of their sanity! How about a park? Finding fun at the park is easy to do!

My husband and I celebrated 10 years of marriage! Crazy, right?!
Well, we wanted to do something special to celebrate but our youngest was only four months and I’d be breastfeeding; so we decided spend our 10 year anniversary trip... with the kids. Not overly romantic, I know, but sometimes you gotta make the best of the situation. An all inclusive Jamaican resort was our destination of choice. We’d never been there before so it would still be special and it was all inclusive, which…Continue
Father's Day is a special time every year that we can celebrate that wonderful father figure in our lives, whether connected by blood or love.

It’s Spring and the weather has finally started to get warmer. Bikes are dusted off and children’s laughter can be heard up and down the street. Yes, life outside the house is ready to resume... until drip, drop, drip drip, drop drop... here comes the rain. However, instead of feeling…Continue
When you first think of the word "date," it's easy to assume that it involves two individuals roughly around the same age who are in some type of romantic relationship, whether new or seasoned. While this may be true, "dates" can include kids, too. (preferably not in addition to the two individuals in a romantic relationship- that's what babysitters are for!) Special outings with just one child and…Continue
lly and I wanted to do something special for Daddy, just to show him how much we love him. We sat down to brainstorm a couple ideas of what to do and finally settled on making a collage for Daddy. The collage would contain things that he really enjoys and something that describes him. Although our Daddy is one who likes to wrestle and roll around on the floor, he also really enjoys dressing up and looking nice!
Check out our finished picture and see how you can make one…Continue

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”…

Like most parents, I try to do activities with my son that do not cost lots of money. I'll get him to go on a bike ride with me instead of taking him to the bouncy house. He'll play guitar with his Daddy at home, rather than go to a music instructor. We play a lot of board games.…Continue

I suck at bowling. (Actual bowling - I rock at Wii bowling.) I lob the ball a bit too far down the lane, I don't take the time to line myself up and I often get gutter balls. But every time I've gone bowling with my son, I've had a blast.
And I am not sure why that is. Admittedly, my son is very good at…

Life gets busier and more complicated as we go from childhood to adulthood. First it’s all about us. Then it’s about us and our family. Then it’s about us, our family, and our friends. Then, as we continue to grow and have families of our own, we add our spouses and children. Then our parents get older, and we…Continue

Let’s face it. In todays’ world, kids would often rather be spending their time indoors with the assortment of electronics we’ve left at their disposal. Whether they’re watching TV, playing video games or on a smartphone or tablet, the children of this new generation spend an alarming…Continue
