Last week, we took our official annual family camping trip. Each summer, we take one trip to a California State Park that I deem “official”because it is with kids and without cell phones, laptops, or iPods. The only media we allow are cameras and Kindles (for capturing memories, and because we can keep all our books in one place).

Yesterday was gorgeous! Finally I had a day at home with perfect weather. I decided that as soon as Matt came home from school I would take them both to the playground. There are several playgrounds within walking distance of our apartment and the closest one got new equipment that I hadn't seen yet. Eric had taken them on one of those freakishly nice…Continue

Last Friday was the last day of Camp Runamuk (the affectionate name we call life at my house when the kids are off school and fun is involved) and I decided to host the First Annual Dugdale Trifecta Easter Egg Hunt.

Just noodling around with a Martha Stewart template and creating some holiday appropriate road signs. These were inspired by my son's fascination with animal crossing signs.
