Family Fun Day with Jack’s Pizza # RealCheeseRealLife

Small town living… gotta love it, right? It took a while for us to adjust to it, but we are madly in love with it. There’s not a whole lot to do here, so we usually have to drive a good hour to get to a location that has a variety of things to do. […]

Fun Holiday Treat “Baking” Ideas for the Littlest Ones!

When I was a child, I lived for the month of December, and in large part, it was because of the holiday baking and treat making that happened from day 1 to day 24.

Move over stroller, hello Piggyback Rider! Review & #Giveaway! {Closed}

With the weather turning nice enough to go outside for walks, one thing that I was dreading was pulling out the stroller or the wagon to tote the kids in for walks. While pulling the kids in the wagon is good exercise, it gets tiring after a short while. When Kambry was a baby, I […]
