A Fun BINGO Twist for Your Next Family Party

Family parties and family reunions are a great way to bring generations of young and old together, especially when family members have moved away and can’t get together very often. These types of gatherings often feature a large number of relatives and their children, and while it can be fun for adults children are often bored or uneasy meeting many relatives they may not know. We usually have a few smaller family gatherings throughout the year and one large reunion so those who live farther away have a chance to attend.

Bright Starts #BabyLOLL Play Date Lots of Fun

[color-box] I received free products in order to host the Bright Starts sponsored Play Date. The opinions expressed here are my own. [/color-box] My girls are growing up way too fast. My 2 year old wants to do whatever her older sister is doing, so I didn't realize just how few "baby" toys we have around here these days. The realization hit me when I was preparing for a friend to bring over her 13 month old, and I thought I would put a basket of toys in the living room he could play with.

Get Outdoors and Enjoy Nature! #ForestFriday

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own as always. It may be hard to believe, but surrounding Walt Disney World are untouched areas of forest, swamps and vegetation. My family and I love to sit outside our hotel room, listen to the crickets and look out for rabbit, ducks and wild turkey. After a long day of Disney attractions and long lines it’s so relaxing especially to look at the stars. When we’re driving in Disney World right around dusk, we often spot deer too. At some of the resorts we have seen alligators, turtles and fish in the swamps and lakes. Going outdoors and … [Read more...]
