As we have started to redo the boy’s room and combine them there have been a few growing pains. Mainly that we sold the big bed before we bought new beds for the boys. No need to worry, it’s time to camp out. Turn lemons into lemonade right?
So once the other bed was taken apart and picked up by the seller up went the tent. In all honesty, it’s only been used once time outside… and a whole bunch of times in the living room.
Forgive the bed head, but he was super excited when he found out he was going to “camp out” in his room… at least for a few days. Continue reading “Bedtime Books – Make the Most of Them”
As a little girl, I would travel to a lot of places in the south with my grandparents and dad during our summer visits. One of the places I remember going was to Stone Mountain. It was a special memory for me so as we were planning our trip to the Atlanta area, I knew this one one of the places I wanted to take my boys.
Thinking back on my memories I remember it being hot, I mean Atlanta in the summertime…. I remember a huge lawn and watching a laser light show. Aside from that, I don’t remember much else that they had. Continue reading “Stone Mountain Adventures”
Living in Florida there is no shortage on pirate anything. We actually took a family trip to St. Augustine this year and soaked up anything and everything pirate.
Did you know that September 19th every year is International Talk like a Pirate Day? You know what that means? It means that in my house we go all out pirate! Here are a few easy ways to make today a little more special. Continue reading “International Talk Like a Pirate Day”
I’m not going to lie, when I saw Disney on Ice was coming by us I knew we had to go. It wasn’t even my boys begging to go, it was ME! 🙂 We went a few years ago, before Harbor was even born and it was great, so this was a no brainer. Continue reading “Disney on Ice – Search Party”
Looking for a super simple new recipe to include in your kiddos lunchbox? Then here you go. Seriously ANYONE can make these. It’s almost the same way you would make rice Krispy treats except for completely different ingredients and a completely different flavor. Although, you could make these with peanut butter… almond butter has such a sweeter flavor, that makes them that much more special and delicious. Continue reading “Super Simple Cornflake Almond Butter Lunchbox Cookies”
It’s the start of the school year, and what that means for me is nonstop projects. I’ve taken charge of the TAPs program at my school. That stands for Teachers as Parents. It is just like a separate branch of PTO. Continue reading “Key to Our Success – Teacher Appreciation”
When I saw that National S’mores Day was this week I had no other choice than to think about what type of s’mores goodness I could make. I is still way too hot in South Florida to actually enjoy going out and making them the classic way, so that option was off the table.
What I could do was make a S’mores cake. I say cake loosely because it really just is a fancy brownie. So I guess you could say I made a S’mores brownie cake. Continue reading “S’mores Cake”
We received a special invite to tour and explore the Palm Beach Zoo…

Did you know it’s Shark Week? It’s one of those things that I never really paid attention to until I had little boys scooting around the house. The two groups of people that know the most about sharks, I believe, are marine biologists and 5-year-old boys.
Of course, since it is Shark Week we have been talking a lot about the ocean and its animals. This originally started out as Galaxy Ice Cream since we had been talking about space so much but it easily transitioned into Deep Ocean Ice Cream (the colors were pretty much the same so I went with it). Continue reading “Deep Ocean Swirl Ice Cream”
I didn’t really know Moon Day was a thing until I randomly saw it posted somewhere. So I dug a little further to find out more. Moon Day is the anniversary of the first time we walked on the moon. 7/20/69. So each July 20th is now “Moon Day”. Now you know. Continue reading “Why Does the Moon Have Craters??? Moon Day Activity”
