Kalso Earthware Shoes

One of the best parts about getting older is gaining the wisdom of experience. One of the not so great things about getting older is your body refusing to do what it use to do. Like dancing all night and waking up without an ache. Or, playing with your kids without hurting your back. Or, shopping all day without having aching feet at night. I can understand overdoing it but walking? I’ve been walking all my life and never had so much as a twinge in my feet.

SitterScout

Real Relationship Advice Since we moved 3000 miles away from family, having a date night was impossible. A non-family babysitter was never an option since we had so many volunteers plus our daughter who was the best babysitter on our roster. However, when you have been on top of a mountain for 7 months and haven’t even snuck away once […]

Finding Balance With Some On-Line Gaming

Lee and I write about finding the balance between doing what you like and what you need to do to survive. Sometimes what you need to do takes over and we forget to have a little fun. Fun is considered frivolous or a waste of time. We know that fun is needed to make the difficult times more bearable and yet we segregate fun to a few minutes a week and feel guilty for our enjoyment.

Birthday At Disneyland

Most of you know that we moved across the country last summer. Most of you know that we were close to our family back in Miami. But, did you know that Paul shared his birthday with my brother at a big, blow out, Halloween birthday party every year for the past 20+ years? Did you know that the Halloween/Birthday party was a tradition in my family dating back to the day my brother was born on Halloween? This being the case, I took it upon myself to create a magical day for Paul that would simultaneously sate any birthday wish and take our minds off the family and friends partying 3000 miles away. What better place than DISNEYLAND for a birthday celebration!

Responsible Halloween

I have attended a Halloween party almost every year of my life. My little brother was born on Halloween and I married a man whose birthday is on the 29th of October. So, there is always lots of partying at the end of this month. I will also admit that there have been some years where we have overdone it a bit. The one thing I can say about our yearly Halloween party is that we are always aware of our guest. No one leaves our parties buzzed or drunk. The parties are one thing but even the night of Halloween is a dangerous one concerning drunk or buzzed driving.

LeapPad Love

Last Summer, we drove 3000 miles across our wonderful country with 3 kids and 2 dogs. We planned for every emergency but especially for boredom. Our two youngest, Bobby 7 and Ricky 4, had games, coloring books, books, and even a laptop loaded with movies and games. We had their old handheld Leapster and a million batteries too! What we would have loved would have been a LeapPad Explorer and a Tag Reading System.
