DinoTrip_vol

It is officially time to make the mad scramble to find the #familyfun for the summertime. Libraries, museums and movies are all good, but the activities I’m referring to are the ones that make you pack a bag and whisk your kids away!

If Fairy Godmothers Were Real…

My daughter enjoyed her time with a Fairy Godmother in Training at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique during our recent Disney vacation.

Disney’s got it right that a fairy godmother would be wonderful but let’s face it, real life isn’t a fairy tale!  I don’t need a fancy new dress for the ball and a horse drawn carriage.  I would, however, love somebody to do my grocery shopping and clean the cheddar goldfish crumbs out of the […]

About 3 months ago, I blogged about how excited I was with my new electric piano.   Before I could think about playing, I needed to find a place in the house to set up my instrument.  Because I figured I would practice a lot while my children were sleeping, I knew the basement was […]
