Where I live

Tweet My daily 15 minute drive to work takes me through farmland, wooded areas, open fields, and city streets. Horses graze, deer leap across the road, and chickens around wander yards. The “big” city is only about 30 minutes away where we can shop, eat at amazing restaurants, check out museums, and all sort of…

Wordful Wednesday – A day at Michigan’s Adventure

Tweet There are so many things that a family can do together right here in Michigan and one of my favorites is Michigan’s Adventure. It’s an amazing amusement park and just like they advertise it really is two great parks for the price of one! My family spent the day there a couple of weekends…

Wordful Wednesday – Curwood Festival

Tweet Curwood Festival. For us it’s the unofficial start of summer. School is out and it’s the first weekend that the kids can stay up late, ride all the rides they want, eat all the treats they can handle, hang out with friends, and enjoy the fun. For me, and other parents, it’s a time…

Wordful Wednesday ~ Winter Fun

Tweet I’ll be the first to admit that I am not a big fan of winter. I hate being cold and wet and once I get a chill it’s sometimes hard to get warm for a while. For some reason though this does not seem to affect kids and I have no idea why. They’re…

Wordful Wednesday – Dinner at Panera with the birthday girl

Tweet Want to know one of my favorite places to eat? Panera. Yup… love it! I think that it’s because it’s a carb lovers dream and there is nothing that I like more than bread. I’m pretty sure that I could make a diet out of bread alone and then I’d spend the time I’m…

Wordful Wednesday ~ Meeting Jeff Kinney

Tweet This past weekend I took my daughter on a surprise trip and it took everything that I had to keep from telling her too! She spent more than half the trip asking where are we going, when are we going to get there, why did I have to bring this book, are we doing…

Wordless Wednesday ~ Lego KidsFest

Tweet This past weekend we had the opportunity to check out the Lego KidsFest down in Novi. So we packed up the kids, invited my brother in law, sister in law, and their son out for a day of family fun. I’m happy to say that we were not disappointed! It was awesome! Of course…

Wordful Wednesday – No Good Pictures

Tweet Every summer (or anytime we go some place) I take my camera and this year was no exception, but for some reason the few times I did pull it out I couldn’t seem to get a good picture of my kids. No matter how hard I tried…. fail. For some reason they just weren’t…

Wordful Wednesday – #MyMichMemory Ludington

Tweet This summer we have spent plenty of time checking out different places around  the great state of Michigan… you know, playing tourist in our own state.  I’ll admit that I haven’t seen all that there is around here and am glad that this summer we’ve had the opportunity to hit the road! A couple…

When a toddler learns to use the iPhone camera

Tweet Cheese!! That’s what I kept hearing over and over again while Andrew was playing with my phone. I didn’t think much of it because I figured that he wouldn’t know how to work the camera or anything like that. Often he just looks at the phone and says cheese because he knows I use…
