The summer is almost here, which means that we’ll finally get to jump back into the swimming pools and enjoy cooling off in the water on a sunny summer day. However, parents need to be extremely careful while their young kids are in/around the water to avoid dreadful accidents and unfortunate…Continue

When I was about seven months pregnant with my first child, my husband and one of his good friends decided they would compete in the Devil's Lake Triathlon. I remember watching and cheering them on from the…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
Yesterday afternoon I decided to take the kids to the swimming pool for a bit of afternoon fun. My older kids have been asking when they could go swimming every since school has been out for the summer. I decided that I would surprise the kids and let them go swimming. The look on their face was “priceless” when they discovered that we were going to go swimming.

I always loved summer time as a kid, it meant spending time at the pool and hanging out with my friends on the weekends. While I was growing up, my mom would often invest in a small wading pool for us so that we could swim in the backyard. A wading pool is a small pool that is usually a few feet deep and can fill it up with water so that you can swim…Continue

If you've ever wondered where all the germs go to party, I'm pretty sure I figured out their favorite stomping ground. Just visit any given water park, and you'll surely find a whole gaggle of germ dudes and germ dudettes gettin' their freak on. How do I know this? Cause my family just spent this past weekend at one, and I've got the mental scars (and the super sexy fever…Continue

Something happened to me today. I actually let my mind go…free.

This summer, I'm taking another round of "swimming" classes with my toddler. For her, it's a way to get comfortable in the water; I know she will not master the art of the backstroke but she will learn to float on her back.
But for me, it's a lesson on what not to wear, what to bring and what to really do in the water with my tot! (Yes moms and dads, if you want your child to blow bubbles in the pool then you too must insert face in water!)

It is the close of Memorial Day weekend. We have definitely had our fair share of grilling, gardening and relaxing. We finally got our pool open so there will be lots of pool time in the
coming weeks. The weather has
turned warm…hot almost and there is a smell of summer in the air.

Who has lost track of your child for a minute? A few minutes? Come on, I know I’m not the only one who has had that shot of pure panic at Target when one kid was begging for a toy and the other decided to play hide-and-seek under the clothing racks. Or how about at the airport when you are scanning the carousel for your luggage and suddenly realized your kids aren’t right next to you? At the…Continue
