Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare (Toy & X Games in Los Angeles tomorrow!)

Are your kids nuts over Hot Wheels? Our 4 year old girl and 7 year old boy are crazy about Hot Wheels! We had the chance to work with Hot Wheels to check out their Hot Wheels Double Loop Dare with the kids just in time for Hot Wheels to ‘go vertical’ at the X […]

Family Fun Day at Six Flags Over Texas!

We are in route for a family fun day today at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington.  The kids still have no idea where we’re going or what we’re doing. They think we’re heading to a playground to play and have a picnic. We are taking another family with us and we will be venturing […]

Discover Boating – Family fun on the water!

With Summer in full swing, do you have any family fun events planned? With living in the Midwest, we are pretty close to several lakes and the Mississippi River so we like to take advantage of the water any chance we get. The kids have a blast on Papa’s boat! While we aren’t in Florida […]

How did you decide on your baby’s name?

When we found out that we were having a boy with my son almost 7 years ago, the names started flowing through our heads. I had thought to name him after an older cousin and because I liked his name, but then it was decided that hubby really liked the name Tucker. Come to find […]

I love keeping in touch with Skype!

How do you keep in touch with your loved ones, family and friends? For me, the internet is my biggest way to keep everyone in touch with our family, and everyone can watch the kids grow up like they are here with us. My son loves to read to grandma and Kambry loves to show […]

Tiny town in our own backyard

We have a pretty big back yard. Ok, so we have a HUGE backyard. Year before last, I bought the kids a playset from Sam’s Club. They LOVE it, but I thought we could do something fun and different to the backyard to spark more interest to play outside more. Ever since we’ve lived in […]

Favorite Apps for Android & Motorola xyBoard

A couple of weeks ago, I announced that I was a Verizon Midwest Savvy Saver and I received a Verizon powered Motorola xyboard to test out and explore all options that it has. I will go in to even more details with it on the go as we travel at the end of the month, […]

Wordless Wednesday: Water Bugs


VTech Full Color Video & Audio Baby Monitors

When my kids were little ones in their cribs, I always wished that there was a way that I could keep an eye on them. Now that they are older, there are times that I would like to be in my office, but still be able to keep an eye on them as they play. […]

Rubbermaid 2-in-1 Recycler

I have a confession to make. I absolutely dislike recycling. I know it’s what we need to do to help cut back on trash, as well as to help our planet, but in my house, recycling has always been nothing but a hassle, a huge mess and cluttered up my deck where the kids play […]

We are huge umi shoe fans in our house. I thought I’d pass along some amazing deals for June! June’s Deal of the Month is Umi’s Racer! We had a similar pair of these last summer and they are still in great shape. By far, the best sandals my son’s ever had. Who can beat […]
