Step-by-Step Guide to a Perfect Outdoor Patio

Extra Living Space, Yes Please. With spring here we are spending every second we can enjoying the sunshine.  Last year, when we moved into our new home it was late August and our patio was the last “room” I was thinking about.  We had a small patio table and chairs out there and didn’t end up spending too much time out there (probably because it was unwelcoming and we had no privacy from our neighbors.) This spring I made it...

Outdoor Scavenger Hunt for Toddlers

Getting Outside If your toddler is full of energy like mine, you are so happy warmer weather is here! We’re making sure that we’re spending a lot of our time outside, but going to the park three times a day can get a little repetitive.  I decided to come up with a little scavenger hunt for Henry to do to switch up our daily routine. Creating the Scavenger Hunt List Henry is only 2.5, so obviously it all had to...

Cute Swimsuits for Toddlers and Babies

Fun in the Sun No one else can pull of thigh rolls and a dimpled butt quite like your little one!  That’s what makes swimsuit shopping for them a blast. It’s almost that time of year again where my kids practically turn into fish and/or crustaceans.

What to do when it rains on Vacation

When it rains, it pours… …and temps drop 45 degrees, it storms, it sleets, and it gets extremely windy.  Okay-okay you get the point; the weather was really shi%$*.  Don’t get me wrong, I checked the weather before we left but was in denial and hoping they were wrong.  I packed beach goodies, shorts, sundresses, and t-shirts. We had everything but jackets, hats, and mittens (which is what we really needed.)  The first few days it poured all. day. long. and with the...

Unfortunately for me I experienced the complete opposite.  I have long...
