What is Coming to America’s Largest Indoor Waterpark @kalahariresorts

Only a 1.5 hour ride outside of New York City, and tucked away in what I can only describe as a beautifully landscaped and very secluded property, is one of the largest indoor water parks in America, Kalahari Resorts & Conventions. Having never been to an indoor water park, we were excited to see what the hype was all about and after our stay last weekend, I think it’s safe to say our family has found a perfect slice of summer in the middle of a long New York winter. Kalahari Resorts & Conventions opened their Pennsylvanian doors in 2015 and […]

Minecraft Holiday Mania at Best Buy!

If your kids are anything like mine, they are clocking some serious time placing blocks and going on adventures with Minecraft. I admit I still don’t get it, but I’ve heard it’s quite educational and can definitely see some of the strategies being applied in the game, being applied to real life. In Minecraft, kids can explore randomly generated worlds and build their own worlds from the simplest of homes to the grandest of castles. My kids love playing in both the creative mode and survival mode. In the creative mode they have unlimited resources and can build and do […]

Our TOP 10 Gift Guide from Lakeshore Learning

This year, we’re doing things a little differently. I’ve gotten so many emails asking where our gift guide is and for every email asking, I’ve gotten 3 times as many pitches for inclusion in our annual gift guide. I could point you to the latest fads and toy that is flying off the shelves, you know them and I know them. This year I want your gifts and mine to be thoughtful. My kids are incredible fortunate, I’d even say spoiled to have more toys than any kid could wish for. Growing up, I didn’t have many toys at all. […]

Ready, Set, Go! Getting Kids Prepared for the New School Year!

It’s hard to believe summer is almost over! Many have already gone back to school, but mine are just shy of 2 weeks away from their start.  This year is particularly bittersweet with my last one, Lucas, Age 3, off to his first school year in Nursery. He couldn’t be more excited. He’s been walked through, and walked through those school halls since he was born. If he had his way he would have been in school years ago! One of the biggest questions has been, will he be ready? I recently introduced him to the Lakeshore Magic Board, a […]

A Whole New Way to Fight off the Mosquitos with PARA’KITO @parakitoUSA

Summer is in full swing and that means lots of summer concerts, camping, hiking and of course, tons of outdoor play.  Being outdoors is a given in this warm weather.  My family enjoys being outside until long after the sun has gone down.  Together we run through sprinklers, go on long bike rides and catch fireflies at sunset.  We have endless thoughts of perfectly quaint family outings and barbeques and out adventures are always seemingly picture perfect.  Summer fun seems like it comes without flaws or without nuisances.  What our happy pictures don’t show are the little things that can […]

Chores in the Digital Age #VZWBuzz

If you didn’t get the news flash…my daughter got an iPhone for her 9th birthday. I still have mixed emotions about it, and may go on a bit of a rant here, but there is some legitimate and valid arguments from both my husband and daughter. She was definitely getting more social, many of her friends at school already had phones and she was getting left out of conversations and messages, also Verizon’s new plans which just rolled out giving us more data with carry over making it perfect timing. With our upcoming trip to Mexico, the included plan access […]
