What To Buy a Boy Turning Five

My middle child and first born son is turning five this coming Saturday (the 13th) and I have no clue what to get him for his birthday, although I do know he wants to go to Chuck E Cheese for his birthday so maybe I don’t buy a gift, I just take him there for a great time? If I were to purchase him a gift here are some ideas of things my son would love for his fifth birthday….

Wood Stacking Robots $15.49

Cars Mack Hauler $19.56

Matchbox Skybuster Cargo Carrier $49.99


The Amazing Spiderman Kids' Folding Scooter $27.94


Nerf Quick Blast Game $14.50

My daughter has a scooter so I know AJ would love to have his own scooter so that he didn’t have to share his sisters scooter. I also know that my son loves anything to do with Cars because we recently took him to watch Cars 2 in the theater and that kid didn’t move his eyes off of the screen plus he has a Doc Hudson and Mcqueen matchbox car that he loves dearly!

I also know my son loves throwing things down and family game nights, we often play cards before bedtime and so I think the Nerf game would fit that love of his!

What did you or would you get a five year old boy for his birthday?

Vacation Time

Content by Sol Rosales

My family just got back from the vacation of a lifetime. We planned at the end of summer that we were all in for a trip to Australia. I cannot even begin to tell you how wonderful this trip was. We started in Adelaide, which is on the southeastern tip of Australia. We then traveled up the coast to visit such places as Byron Bay and Frasier Island. We went whale watching, held koala bears, visited some wildlife sanctuaries, and overall just did the entire Australian experience. My kids, who are in college, had a great time, too. It was so nice to be able to spend time all together on a family vacation, just like we did when the kids were younger. We decided on the trip that we were going to try and make this a every-other-year tradition to travel to another country. Before we left, I wanted to make sure I felt comfortable leaving our home unattended, so I went to www.Home-alarm-systems.com/. I sure hope our tradition continues for years to come.
