Summer Family Time – Enjoying the Outdoors

June 27, 2014 No Comments

“I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Banana Boat® Sun Care. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”

I love doing those ‘girly’ things. You know, laying out by the pool, going shopping, getting my hair and nails done, then going shopping some more. That’s how my days were scheduled almost every single day. Then I became a mom. A boy mom to three adventurous daredevils.

A Family Weekend Getaway at Castle Rock Resort & Waterpark in Branson, MO

May 29, 2014 1 Comment

We were provided with a two-night stay at Castle Rock Resort & Waterpark in Branson, MO. All opinions are my own. 

Years and years ago, my husband and I loved going on road trips and traveling. Three kids later, those things seemed nearly impossible and honestly, quite intimidating. How could we sanely manage three kids under the age of 4 in unknown territory? How would we survive? However, this year I knew the impossible had to be conquered.

Hockey, Pizza, & Family – Game Time Fun

January 24, 2014 6 Comments

This game time & pizza post is part of a sponsored #GameTimeGoodies #cbias campaign for Collective Bias®. All opinions expressed are my own.

Theme night (or days) are always a hit in my house. We like to have movie nights, themed dinner parties, game nights, etc. For me, it’s more of an easy excuse to have some family time. No matter what we are gathering together for, food and family are always the common factors.

One of the activities on our Fall Bucket List included apple picking so we visited a local orchard over the weekend. It was the last day of the picking season, so there weren’t that many left on the trees, but the boys really enjoyed it.

This past weekend my oldest turned four. I am still having a hard time wrapping my head around it. They just grow up too fast. We got him a pretty awesome present for his birthday that I am hoping it lasts a long time. They definitely love it already.

Visiting Grant’s Farm {St. Louis, MO}

April 18, 2013 8 Comments

Make sure you check out our most recent visit in July 2014 and the newest attractions at Grant’s Farm

I love visiting attractions around St. Louis throughout the year with the family. Luckily, there are a good number of family-friendly and budget-friendly places in the area. One of the most popular free attractions in St. Louis is Grant’s Farm. I haven’t been there since I was a kid so I have been looking forward to taking my little ones this year. Last Saturday (April 13th, 2013) was their opening day for the season. Sunday was really nice out so we headed out for a day of fun.
