Summer Road Trip

A few years ago, my sister-in-law and I started talking about taking the kids on a road trip.  We wanted to wait until the youngest two were six.  I think they were three when we started planning.  We originally wanted to drive out west and take our time seeing the sights.  We realized it would […]

Summer Reading for the Rest of Us

Ahhh summer…The perfect time to relax and get caught up in a good book!  Lindsay is an avid reader.  She is fast and reads through books like I go through coffee K-cups.  I on the other hand am a binge reader.  I’ll go months without reading a fictional novel and then all of a sudden […]

The Month of May

Next to the crazy holiday season we think the month of May is the busiest month of the year!  Hectic schedules including sports, recitals, end of year school programs, family birthdays, church activities, graduations…not to mention the busyness of everyday life…things tend to get a little (okay a lot) crazy this time of year. So […]

Cinco de Mayo

Our littles turned 5 last year on May 5th and 6th.  A year has passed, and we are in denial that they are turning 6.  Here is a throwback to a fun and festive Cinco de Mayo party! Starting with the food, we bought clear trays and assembled a nacho bar with toppings.  We also […]

Kindness Goes a Long Way

On my way back from April vacation this week, my family had a layover in Atlanta and had to scramble to catch the connecting flight.  We almost didn’t make it!  We totally missed the family with young children boarding time.  When we got on the plane there were only two seats left together in the […]
